Watched the most recent vid Sweets put out. Call me old fashioned, but I'm not a fan of kendama being identified with street culture. Jan 9, 2019 at 10:18 AM

        I understand marketing is to try to get their products out to all ...completely get it ... Yet ...there are so many ambassadors of Kendama ( Rod , Norx, Fisher, Coop ...as just a few of the countless ) that bring the love of Kendama to the schools to spread it .. amazing work but ..

        ....just Imagine If that video was the first their parents looked up ,“ on that “magical Google-box in their hand” is that vid ...you may have lost a lot of families that may have fostered it with their children ? Hmm

        No hate here at all , we love , foster, participate in events , started a club , shop all branding ( I’m soo broke) :) , made soo many friends in the community , and give back as well to it .....but just think that we should let the players in the community post and share edits showcasing their love , rather than marketing it this way to start maybe .. just a thought - Never hate ;)

      Cushion Clear and humid weather don't mix. The stuff is peeling too fast!

        Yea, not sure if they changed the formula or what but I’ve heard some chatter that newer Cush clear Tamas do peel quicker/easier than they used to. I had a choc covered strawberry Cush clear that never peeled at all. But this new ProMod did before even playing it at all. And I know the promod Cush clears are a newer thing

      Lol I find it ironic that those players who want to go pro or get sponsored more than anything are the ones who don't get sponsored.

      Shoutout to Cereal Kendama for such a superb ken shape! Full maple, and perfect balance between slings and lunars to boot!

        @JHard502710 Copped a Homer, plus a Ken Only option from cereal. They play great for the most part!

        @JHard502710 I have a caveat though: Since Cereal uses maple tamas, they tend to be really light relatively to the ken (it's happened to me twice; the two kendamas I've bought from them were almost 20 grams ken heavy). If that doesn't bother you, they are awesome damas, but if not, I suggest buying a ken only and pairing it with another tama (the kens usually are around mid-70s range)

      I hope there can be events as big as MKO in more parts of the world. Doesn't have to be at present, but it's a goal to be achieved.

      Haley and Dwesty both going pro is a testament to how skill isn't everything re: getting sponsored. Community support plays a big part too.

        I feel like this is so true. Usually when you think of pros, you would think that they're really good at kendama, but like you said, Haley and Dwesty prove that it's not just skill level that gets you to the pro status.

      How timely is it that the moment my parents took a trip to the States, Sweets kendamas released these new Target Damas! Copping all 3!

        Lucky. I live in Michigan, but only ONE Target is selling them here and it’s 3 hour drive.. And I’m sure they’d be sold out even if I got a ride there... I don’t see why they don’t sell them online. 14$ is a steal! I’d buy all 3 as well.

      Law school sucks, but when u do good, it's an awesome feeling. Kind of like a really long grind for a trick.

      Working on my 2 years of dama edit. Unlike year 1, where I did it while on the road with beautiful scenery, it'll be mostly in my bedroom.
