    Don’t really “like” your post but I feel it.. I can’t believe that after 6months from initial release at MKO that they didn’t have more produced for this drop to last longer than a minute.. sorry dude I’m sure you’re not the only one though.. good luck on the hunt. Never know maybe someone bought two to sell the other

    I played computer games to pass the time to 1pm, overshot it by one minute. Had one in my cart but I was debating weather or not to buy multiple and that was my downfall. A limit of one per customer on the first drop would be nice. I sure hope the next batch comes sooner than six months.

    It wasn't even on my page when I was refreshing on time. It appeared hours later when I went back on the site to see it was sold out. Sucks.

    Yea, I noticed that it didn't show up under any of the listings. The only way to find it was to search for it by name. Was anyone able to buy multiple? I just assumed it was one per customer?

    Thanks man. I’m somewhere between salty and sad haha. Definitely hoping they have more on the next drop because I don’t want us all to go through this again :rolleyes:

    I think with shipping it was like $20 more than on the US Sweets site.. not sure pricing to where you are for shipping though so u may have paid a more hefty price

    Sweets Romania won't ship to the US, will it? I imagine they have some arrangement... and I tried, keeps saying there's no available delivery method.

    I get the rationale behind small-run drops like this, but they really bug me. I'm a willing customer who wanted to buy a product not even a couple hours after it went up for sale and that was too late. I know this avoids the risk of overproducing a mod and the cost of keeping unwanted stock on-hand, but there's business being lost with this limited, drop-style selling. If there was a way for Sweets to know that this would have sold out so quickly, surely they could have arranged to simply make more of them.

    Sorry for the salt... it's just a shame it works out this way. I don't get a fancy new kendama, and Sweets didn't get my money. Lose-lose.

    I felt similar feelings until I watched C.Fraser unboxing one on Sweets YouTube page.. he went over the detail that goes into each one to properly weight balance the Sarado as well as the Tama. Said the different woods types used in the tama make it flip more like a coin and help to keep the the hole more so straight up or down when it rotates.. if that makes sense, if not go watch his vid. I felt less salty afterwards myself after watching. But initially thought yea after a 6months wait they would have produced more for this first batch. But he’s going to have multiple batches. Like a whiskey.. but those batch 0&1’s will be worth the most loot in the future if anyone holds onto a fresh one

    Exactly! I'm a wood nut, so even having 5 types in it--regardless of why--was so cool. The idea that it helps is even more interesting. I just REALLY wanted this one, and wanted to be in on it.

    I managed to contact one of my buddies who works at Air Traffic at the Mall and he was able to save one for me! So I was able to snag one after all!
    So stoked :)

    Edit:
    I feel like all the batches after one will be the same as one, so batch zero will be worth the most. There is no clear differential between batches after zero that I can see, yet.
