    Hey everyone,

    just wanted to ask for your opinion on the new ratio clear by sweets kendamas. I bought a Cam Herrero mod and it arrived today. It feels a bit like pro clear and i'm very excited to play it. Going to post my opinion on here as well but I would love to hear your thoughts.

    Thanks

    Same. I got a Stankmod in Ratio but haven’t played it yet. Feels a little more grippy than proclear out of the box from my memory of proclear.. but it’s been a WHILE lol

    haven’t played it yet actually though. Will report once I do

    I played it a little now and I have to say it's very unique. It feels very nice in the hand and has almost a glasslike feeling to it. From a playability standpoint it's also very interesting. Sometimes it just sticks like you glued the whole tama but if you try to adjust it, it is pretty slippery which makes it very nice to adjust but sometimes it's hard to have it stop sliding. It also seems to be pretty durable but nothing out of the ordinary. I'm really excited to hear more thoughts and to see how the playability changes over time. Pretty stocked but I don't know if it can compete with a good ol' cush. Probably a good alternative for people who don't like the sticky clear from sweets and still want to play a glossy dama.

    That's true. I had the same peeling problem on a northern lights but it seems to be a problem with specific runs or something else because my juicy joker mod does not peel. I have not really played it until a month after getting it so maybe it had something to do with that but I don't really know how that could have an effect on the durability of the paint. I've heard that cush is better on nattys but I don't have one so.... idk
