I have about $30 in spending money so Im just looking for new and cheap damas.
Sweet prime all the way!!! They are very cheap and absolutely slay!
Never sleep on them Primes.
Also, if you've never owned one, Oozoras are worth your every penny.
Ask anyone in DS, they've most likely owned a few (or one) at some point.
I already know about primes, just looking for more other than sweets primes.
Ozora, Kaizen, and from what I hear sweets prime, all good damas you can acquire for under $30.
Try out a roots. Or sol. Both have reasonably priced damas and are of good quality.
Sol Kendamas are great, Pioneers right at $30.
Also DWI often has sales that dips below $30. Or get a barebones DWI maple for $25! Great shape, maple is rad.
Kendama USA has a ton for $30 and under. 2.0s are right at $30, but their other stuff is still great!
Terra standard (with sourmash paint!!) is well under $30 USD. (Always wanted to play one of those.)
Bunch of good (even brand new design) Atlantic kendamas for under $30.
I got my Ozora on amazon for $22, killer dama.
I'm sure there are more, look around!
Almost forgot one that is more recent, pnw "slate" is only $22. Looks like they're taking preorders for their next drop. Natty beech, looks solid.
TK 16 4 lyfe

You could buy two natty BLK for $30...and that's after shipping.
Active Kendamas are on the cheaper side if you wanted something with a good rubber paint. I've also found their damas to really take a beating well.
Honestly though, depending on exactly what you're looking for and already have, I always recommend a natty TK-16. You can definitely get one shipped for under 30.
I have always recommended Active and I feel they are one of those companies that gets overlooked. If you put a cushion on an active ken I swear you will be slaying hard. Active kens have those deep cups for lunars but they juggle really well too.
Exactly! I really do think they are underrated, or at least less popular than I believe is deserved. A few of my favorite rubber damas have From Active.
Also @Angelo quinto, Atlantic Kendamas have a new dama out called Algae. All Maple, with my absolute favorite super sticky paint to date. I believe they are $25, and an absolute steal for the quality.
Yeah check it out you can actually get some sweet bundles of 3+ Damas for only $20 https://kendamasyndicate.com/
Primes or actives

Atlantic Kendamas are great kendamas for their price, they are a real steal. I really want to try out their new paint.
the best bang for your buck is to buy a sweets prime. Best dama for cheap.
I have been playing kendama for over a year now, but I took a 8 month break. I have a craft 2.0 ash, which is great, but I'm looking for a new dama. My craft has passed its prime and is now not tacky at all. I'm looking for a cheap (sub $30) that has a silk finish. Natty would be fine as well, as long as it breaks in nice. I have tryed sweets prime, and I have to say I'm not impressed, even for a cheaper option for damas.
KUSA 2.0 are silk (recommend the maple). PNW slates are $22. Wait until August and you can grab a KROM for $20.
