small heavy flail


Rules Questions

so does a medium character takes any penalty for using a small heavy flail as a one handed weapon?

i'd use a normal flail but the heavy flail has a better crit range than the flail for some reason

Using an inappropriately sized weapon gives a -2 penalty on attack rolls for each size different. A medium-sized wielder using a weapon meant for a small-sized creature would take a -2 penalty on attack rolls.
