      any tips on grip changes? like going from ken grip to tama grip without having the tama fall off the spike? can’t seem to find a tutorial

        I feel like I do this grip change different than most, maybe not, but what I do is if I’m Ken grip with tama on spike I push up with the whole setup and as I get to apex I switch grips grab the tama and make a swooping Motion downward and to my left(I’m right handed) like I’m writing a Capitol “J” in the air with the Kendama..

      Why are the gt-ka/bh so much more than the stodd mod? I wish they had a more affordable KA ): i love the shape and aesthetic

        The new Stodd mod is mass produced over seas I’m almost 100% positive on.. the KA/BH mods as well as v1 Stodds are all hand turned in states. Aside from the Legaxis KA/BH’s which were made in Japan I’m pretty sure

        Like most woods weights will vary.. but birch is a good sturdy wood, I wouldn’t neccesarily deam it Heavy per say. People love the Birch/Ash BH from GT it seems.. I’ve got the slim shape craft in (white?)Ash I believe and love it. But I’m partial to ash and it’s grain

        @JHard502710 i’ll definitely consider ash but i’ve heard some mixed reviews of ash kens as some people aren’t too fond of them

      what ken/tama gram difference is considered good?
      1. slothymane
        slothymane
        whatever you prefer. For me its either 1:1 or 2-8g tama heavy

        96817dama
        IMO if I'm not getting a balanced setup I go for about 5 - 8 grams tama heavy. For me the difference affects whirlwinds, it really helps get the scoop just right to get that tama spinning nice n slow and the lighter Ken is easier to flip fast, can basically enable a quick flip and near instant catch. It also reallyyyy helps me with inward birds idky just my 2 cents.

      Quick question: Why didn’t Nick Gallagher get a champ mod last year? But So & Bryson did when they won?

        quacktaped
        Both champ mods have come out a year after that player has won the competition. my guess is that a mod will be made and released right around the time of KWC 2019 although I could be wrong because Nick already has a pro mod.

        Ash tama, especially natty. Breaks in great for stalls.
