Would'ya? So, looking back at the years (or months or whatever) that you have been playing dama, is there anything that you would change about when you first started...or later on in your career? this can be anything from tricks learned to kendamas purchased or even players you watched. Just anything. personally, I didn't have enough knowledge when first starting and bought a kaizen padauk as my first dama. Not that it's a bad dama or anything, but it was not a good first dama choice. It was expensive (bought it on amazon... n00b) it wasn't durable (like at all), and I mean it's padauk; like I should have gotten beech or birch or something durable and cheap like that. So, that's my regret, what's yours?
