        am I correct in saying that a maple tama won't get near as grippy as an ash or birch?

        Maple: durable and fiyah
        Birch: Durable and grippy
        Ash: Stalls and grippy
        I have the best experience with birch, but that's just a theory, a ken theory! JK, I actually have a birch and it slays, GO COP

        Pop if you like rubber and you're cool with it, or Prime if you like a glossy type of clear. It just depends on what paint finish you like.

        If you can do it sometimes, then it's just a matter of practicing enough to be able to do it all the time! That's how you become consistent at a trick!

        Watch that sweets vid, pull of the tama the same way every time and give it a nice consistent tap to bring that hole back and ready to spike

      for swirl, do you hold the ken in ken grip or sara? Also, does anyone have any tips for air whip?

        I've seen most people use ken grip. For air whip, imagine doing a single butterfly while pinching the string with your index and middle finger and having the thumb in the middle of them. So if I could describe it as a sandwich, it would be thumb at the bottom, string, and the index+middle finger. Once you've got the flow, practice rotating your sandwich towards your dominant side and back.

        For swirls, go to @Uriel Sanchez 's Youtube vid. Honestly, it's still a trick I'm trying to get down!
