    I think I've seen someone on Facebook make their own version of this. It definitely looks funky, and I like slingers but I imagine this would just make them way too easy. It's almost curling around your finger haha

    I wonder if it would mess up the weight/mass ratio for other tricks. Need to see it in action.

    It'd be helpful if they gave the sarado hole diameter so you could guestimate it's fit on other brands besides those listed.

    However if you really want to do Gunslingers why not have one that looks the part (kind of).

    I have only seen pictures of that sunken sarado, but I have researched their other products. Most of what they do is awesome for those who are picky about weight. They make specially weighted sword and sarado pieces that give you full customization of the playability of the ken.
    Very interesting company. They work with Yumu, but I'm not sure if they are part of Yumu, or just sold on the Yumu site.

    I've played on one of the sunken kens and I didn't really like it, mostly because the shape was so new and different from what I'm used to. However, in terms of weight, the base cup is actually hollow inside, even though their is no hole, which helps for lunars. Overall, the ken is alright but I definitely would prefer something like a sweets prime or Sol Pioneer.
