      Is there a way to know for sure if your tama is eggy? I think my dot burst might be because the ken tilts back and forth a lil on lunar.

        I just use the big cup and put it in various places on the tama. First directly over the bevel and then in places on the side of the tama where I personally do lunars. I just hold the ken down and tilt it in a few directions to see if there are any leftover gaps. If there are, then I know for sure that it's eggy.

        Best way to do my technique is by using a ken with massive cups like a POP, Prime, Shift/Slim, Squab, or Active V3. Like just go all over the tama with the big cup until you find that one area that's eggy.

      Any ideas why the Fraser throwback v8 customs were/are so unpopular? There are still 114 in stock!

        But in all honesty, I don't know. I personally love the look of it (because white and gold are just amazing together), but the only problem for me is not being able to cop...

        No I didn't count lol. If you add it to your cart and then hover your mouse over the thing that says the quantity it tells you how many are in stock for some reason

        Heavier kens are better for learning control. Krom pops are pretty decent. Something with a wider bottom cup helps as well.

        I think Purple Heart taps nicely. So does my maple base hole No Jumper Dama. Hard to say if lighter or heavier wood is better... I don’t think booty holes matter much for taps but do have a different feel.

        I think it was a very honed pro clear. At least that's what I remember seeing on his IG story. But I could be mistaken

      is there there any other advantage of maple over ash (kens) besides durability?
      1. Aaron Gallegos

        They’re smoother and harder so they’re supposedly more ideal for gunslingers and taps I guess.

        They’re heavier. More weight typically makes juggles easier for me

        I dont like Maple kens for the same reasons people love them... they take too long to break in and are too smooth for my taste. The rougher grain of the Ash gives me more feel and control.

        The younger you are, the better chance you have at being really good at kendama. You both are still pretty young so you have potential to be awesome! You just gotta grind and put the work in, which can be hard with other conflicts

      did anyone actually land a lvl 12 on stage?

        I think Nick might have landed one or two In 3 minutes, he probably couldn't have gotten 1447 points w/ qualifiers added w/o a lvl 12 trick in his final run.

        dude juggles are a grind. it took me sooo long to get 1 jug to spike, then another really long time to get two and three, and after three I was able to add more easier.
