    My prediction is within X-XX years, it's 20XX and we're all playing with Biggies/ Sumos with no small cup, with the tackiest cushion-esque paint imaginable. KWC makes a bigger box to accommodate everyone.

    'Old' dama heads are now super old- so old that kids look at us and say "wow he still has a small cup", Or "wow he uses a string still, not anti gravity paint."

    BUMP!!!

    My prediction this year

    SWEETS
    •Champ mod in red/white ashteroid design (quite obvious but we'll see)
    •(*I keep bringing this up) Bryson,Funk, & George on the Pro Team (around KWC probably)
    •#TakuIsLegend
    BLUE LUZUMAKI

    KUSA
    •(I mean I didn't expect dwesty to be pro last 2018 but if he did then...) Nobu, Joris, & Scags are the next candidates for the pro team (if nobu stays in the top spot in KWC, defenitely most considerable to be in the pro team)
    •(Still calling it) Revamp old v3 solid pro mod colors. Add/modify it to new design or just stay solid on the new shape. (or maybe the new craft colors design with all 4 colors into one)
    •old pro mods(v4 till the kaizen 2.0 shape) prior to the bish mod and dwesty mod will bump to either shift or slim.
    NEW half splits, trip stripes, and (*I wish) FADES

    KROM

    •Rintaro Kanemoto and Soma Fujita for Krom Japan
    •Pewdiepie Dama???(*kinda feel like his design fits for a krom kendama) can we make this happen?
    •(*still hoping till this day)REVAMP 1st 430XKrom trip splits damas (in rubber paint, or in LOL clear, don't care anymore just bring it back)
    •Also the Krom 430 coach jacket
    •New S/S(corn,sahara,clover) and W/A (pumpkin,tundra,moss) pops
    •9bday is in mocha/creme color

    OZORA
    •Year of the pig probably the reshape
    •Reshape solids

    TK16
    •New Zoomadanke colors

    Legaxis
    •Will do natties again, will do keyaki one way or another

    I was just saying in another thread that I hope we see an updated line with the new All-star bevel and sticky paint.

    @Edric Owen Ladera I don't know if they'll do a Year of the Boar in the REShape but the regular one is already out.

    I agree as well! The bevel is my main gripe with Sol's kendamas.

    Bumping this
    2020 Predictions anyone?

    Quick rundown of what has happened within the first 5 days of 2020

    Alex Mitchell has now officially been announced as Sol’s newest pro and his pro mod drops in Feb.

    Alex and Logan Tosta both took BatB 2020 in Open and Freestyle respectively.

    Sweets and Krom announced new players at BatB.
    .
    .
    .

    I’m sure we’ll see new revamped pro mods from Sweets this year and possibly one or 2 players moving up to Legend.
    KUSA might promote or bring in a new player to the pro team and I’m gonna guess announce at least 1 new player for Tribe. And of course Rui getting a champ mod for winning KWC last year.
    Sol has yet to release the Su Lab collab on their own site yet but a promo for Dama to the Death has also teased a yet to be released dama from Sol at the event. I want to guess a new collab with Honed Media?
    Analog may bring in new players, possibly a new pro?
    We’ll see a new shape from GT that will replace the E1.

    Since we've been covering multiple years here I've updated the original title to reflect that.
