    I grabbed the decade bday bundle too. Was gonna grab the Boo one but just had to hold off for now. Really want it though, but grabbed the Analogue year 3 which is my first from that company. So lots of excitement coming my way lol.

    Oh man! I was at work all day yesterday(16hrs) and completely missed the Analog drop. I work a day job and then PT nights at a pizza shop and it was a Friday night so didn’t have time/remember last night to grab one! I’ve had a couple squabs in the past but nothing new from them.. I’ve only seen and heard good about them from others though! I’m sure you’ll enjoy :)

    New “Sanskoku” koi fish dama by Legaxis. The maple ken feels like high grade wood quality, the paint has a nice moderate stick without being glossy or tacky feeling, the edges and machining on the cups are sharp, the tip is slightly bullet-shape. Tracking seems really good with a red hole and bullseye / scope type design. The wood has a “porcelain”-like sound when it clacks and certain spikes have an “air gun” sound to them. Not the greatest lunar balance.

    Ken 70g, Tama 77g.

    I like it. To me, it has a similar feel to Analog Squabs but the overall size (height wise) is similar to Craft Shifts/Slims. Plus it's designed by Stodd so it's slinger honed. I posted this on FKC where someone got this as their first GT but it's interesting to know now that there are players out there whose VERY FIRST Grain Theory kendama does not have the swoop.
