    I think both are pretty good. It all comes down to preference.

    If you're familiar with LOL clear or Prime paint, you'll like the Sticky AF since it gives the same results. The DWI Sticky AF paint is what's on the new GT-E1s so I've been enjoying jamming it. Grippy enough for my loons to smack but also leaves room for adjustments.

    The DWI rubber paint is also good, if you like rubber paints. It's grippy enough when it starts out and then breaks in to get more grippier as the paint starts getting more jammed. I haven't jammed this one extensively but I do like it

    Thanks for the clarification! I ended up snagging one of the awesome new DWI x OhYesYo collabs with Sticky AF because I really like the GT-E1 paint.

    I love that there is no wrong answer. I will have to check out their rubber paint in the future!

    Did you get the sticky and true it's all personal preference for sure.

    Yep, I grabbed the Sticky AF of the OhYesYo collab, but I wasn't sure which to snag. I have a GT-E1 that I like a lot, so I rolled with the Sticky AF, but I would also like to check out their Rubber paint! I am a total noob, so I am still kind of figuring out what my preferences are.

    They seem about the same in my opinion.i could be wrong but I think they are from the same factory. Still solid though

    I copped that same collab. Zebrano is such a great wood, I can only imagine how awesome this kendama is going to be.

    How much (and in what way) does the extra weight from the zebrano affect play?

    I find it helps lock in tama stalls really well. It also seems to help with stilts a lot.
