That KUSA sale makes me wanna cop, why not, jw what the paint performs like!
I'd say it is very similar to the LOL Clear on Slaydawgs, sticky glaze on Sol Pioneers, and the newer super sticky paint on TJ's KUSA pro mod. It's just a different paint formula from the aforementioned damas.
I've had a couple tribute super sticks and they really are super sticky. I have each of the three other kendamas I listed above also and can attest to the similarities to each other (at least in how sticky they are when played). The other three sticky paints I think give you more room for adjustment out of the box whereas the tribute super stick only gives you a little bit, at least that's what I got from my experience with it.
They make great tamas to learn a lot of balance tricks on because the paint is stickier/tackier than the KUSA silk paint, both out of the box and after breaking in.
The tribute super stick is also very durable, some reason I feel very cursed when I get a new 'super stick' setup from KUSA where I always drop it on the floor/ground super hard from a failed spacewalk catch on THE VERY FIRST DAY of playing with it. The TJ pro mod super stick paint chipped on the impacted area but the two super sticks I had before that (turquoise and glacier white) didn't chip the paint at all from the impact (all three on blacktop/asphalt).
Sick dude, i've already got a slaydawg, so that gives me some reference, i mean i can get two green super sticks for 13 bucks shipped, just gonna jump on it haha
The white tama is the glacier super stick tribute tama. You can see where it hit the asphalt right there near the bevel but did not chip the paint at all.
On the TJ mod tama you can see where the paint chipped after it fell on asphalt too. Super bummed that happened on the first day almost right after opening it but because of where it's at it didnt really affect playability and still is one of my favorite tamas.
But this really shows how durable the trib super stick paint is.
What's the sale? I wanna jump on this too haha
