I love kendamas that have a pastel look! Light purples, pinks and blues etc... I also like any tama that fades to a natty from the painted top. I'm not a big fan of a black and white tama (especially if black is around the bevel). I'm also not a big fan of words painted all over the tama like "Dama" or some cheesy words or sayings. (I do like the new KROM pro mods different style because it's a pro mod and presented nicely) I would like to know what you guys like/dislike about colors and "custom paints"?? My preferences have changed over the years and I'd like to see what other people like!
