    I have been thinking about this for a while and i'm glad you made a thread about this. This is just my opinion so if this offends anyone, please just know that I am not 100% correct of all I say.

    People who I do think that deserve a pro model are

    - TJ Kolesnik / TJ is such a positive player that I have met in real life. He brings such a nice vibe to the community and is amazing with kids. He loves spreading the love of kendama and makes people so happy. TJ is definitely someone who deserves to be a pro and should be known more in the community.

    - Jake Wiens / Jake is someone I have not met but is someone I look up to. He always loves kendama and is able to help anyone who is struggling in kendama. He's been playing kendama for a long time and has seen and evolved the kendama community for a long time. If anyone, Jake no matter what should be a KUSA pro.

    - Turner Thorne / Turner is someone who has been very inactive for some time. He has not done much to the kendama community other than making some tutorials for KendamaUSA's YouTube channel. My personal theory is that when he hurt his knee his friends felt bad and made him his pro model. He is good at kendama but i really have not seen anything that he did to the community that really helped. That is why I think Turner Thorne should not be a KUSA pro.

    - Jake Fischer/Bonz Atronz / Bonz and Jake are great kendama players and both have been through some tough times during Kendama Co. Why I do not think that Jake and Bonz should not be pros for KROM is because people like Rolf and Benjamin have been with KROM for a longer time. For me, I would pick someone who has been with the company for a longer time. Not someone with more skill. (sorry if that offends Ben or Rolf.) This is just some of the stuff that i can explain in one reply. If you want to hear more from me please reply to me or just ask me i dont know :/

    I'm a little confused...

    Are you saying of the above pros you mentioned, why you think some deserve to be pros and others don't? They all have pro mods already, and I thought this thread was about Pros that should get or deserve a pro mod that don't have one yet.

    Perhaps there is a misunderstanding here though. :)

    Aside from the fact that Ben is crazy good at kendama, it's funny to see that he was climbing on top of stuff even back then (idk how clear the picture will be, but zoom in a little)
