How do you chose your jammer?

    Hi DS community,

    Now that the black Friday sales are done and all purchased damas are in hand, we now have the power to chose what to play with. Now there lies a problem. If your a dama player like me you probably categorize your dama to:
    a. (old but gold slayers)
    b. (middle tier every day jammers)
    c. (Jammers that are high quality, or fit your preference, and I don't know if I want to hold off playing it in order to preserve its dexterity a bit longer)

    I just got back into playing kendamas. I'm okay at it. A part of me wants to just jam on one of my middle to low tier kendamas in hopes that I get hone before playing my better kendamas.

    What do you personally do? How do you chose what to play with on a given day?

    Since there's so much different shapes and sizes do you feel like sticking to one kendama is the best way to get honed? And jumping around different kendama's prevent you from truly getting better?

    Im really new, not sure if there was a post like this already.

    I have a bunch of damas and they all range from still new to the ones that I wouldn't give away bc I put so much work in on them. I choose the ones I heavily jam by simply playing them. If it fits my style of play(stall and lunar heavy mostly) and has a good weight ratio/loon balance, I can usually kick it with that one. For example, I have a birch stodd mod with an ash tama that is still practically brand new I got for Christmas last year because I found better jammers. And i tend to leave my more expensive damas alone and jam them a little less. Either Way, my main jammer right now is the second gen. Give a dama. Insane lunar balance and killer stalls. Also great with insta lightys and ken flips.
    So I would just say feel them out and see what your most comfortable with. At the end of the day. It's just preference and I don't think price really has the most to do with it if you can get a dama that's set up how you like it. Sorry about the long post.
