The ball-and-chain flail was primarily considered a peasant's weapon, and while not common, they were deployed in Germany and Central Europe in the later Late Middle Ages. Actually, it is a morning star, in which the head is connected by a chain with the handle. This type of flail became famous in Bohemia by the Hussites in the 15th century. These weapon proved effective in action against increasingly stronger armors of mercenaries. Thanks to the chain, the impact on the enemy armor was not transferred back into the handle.
