    not try to put cold water on but man, from what I see as Yumu is the first company I've ever know, Yumu is not doing Pro Mod kind of things, even their original pro team(Japan, Taiwan, HK) the ONLY pro mod they made for is the HK pro LiHo, and it is just a new dama designs and few laser engravings on the Yumu original Ken(not even eclipse as that moment they were still developing it)

    Kendama ISR has introduced free laser engravings. And if I'm not mistaken, they have $5 international shipping, so jump on their product because they have some fire in stock!
    That being said, with that and the handful of skilled wood burning artists (@Monkayglands and @dereklikestoskateboard in particular) either putting up fire customs or collabs with dama companies like Cobra and MPLS, I can see a lot more engraving/wood burned custom drops in the future (would be sick to see Sweets do a V-series custom drop of such products)

    Just goofin'. If you're going to make a prediction go for precision. The numbers just popped into my head. It's kind of like those EOTWAWKI predictions based on obscure calendars or asteroid flybys. :eek:

    that clears the air. but, i mean why not? it could be a possibility. also if everyone/anyone would like to have it, should we push this thru? (less given a fact that mikey had a pro mod before yumu. but just for ol time sake, he atleast deserve it.)

    ya of cuz why not, I think all of us will like to see a series of pro mod for Yuta, Yumi(YumuJP), Screw(YumuTW), even the new YumuUSA pro team too. Hope Parker will start to plan or at least giving chance to all his loyal pro players to design their own mod. (Eclipse is honed enough, if they gonna do the pro series with Eclipse ken shape, that will surely LIT AF)

    You're freakin nostradamus HAHAHAHA Although you didn't get the shift correct. i read the old comment when you said "no new shape this year" still it's surprising you got the emerald figured

    Well, KUSA did end up introducing a new shape (and rumors say another new/updated Slim shape is in the near future too).

    But you were right about the Emerald Mugen dropping at KWC, so hoping your Pokeball prediction comes true as well.

    Personally, would love to see a KUSA Craft Shift/Sweets collab with some pro cleared Shifts

    Dwest is going pro too. I would love a pro clear shift. That is my main jammer right now.

    I agree, but who knows. Not many people could have predicted Jake leaving KUSA.
    Dylan or Hailey or someone else (or both Dylan and Hailey for that matter) could already have been approached by KUSA for pro status and it just hasn’t been publicly announced yet.
    Before they announced Mac Herbold for Krom, he was asked by them and accepted that position for (at least) the better part of a year before it was made public.

    Regarding your prediction for LunaTac and the giveadama, I don't hear much from LunaTac anymore. Any idea how they're doing?

    @Emil Apostol You might go over to the Giveadama thread and tag him to see if he replies but his profile says he hasn't been on for 30 weeks.

    With the openings left by Alex Hirota and Chelsea May Perez, Sweets sponsors Kyle diller and another female player (Maybe claire from OC).

    In relation to this, I think Ball and Stick Co. is teasing Alex Hirota as the newest member of their team.
