    Took advantage of BF sales and got myself an Ash Craft Slim. It’ll be my first craft. I also picked up a Krom Ash Nihon Slaydog. Will be my first slaydog. Hopefully Monday I resist anything else. But some of those new terra promods looks nice.

    This is my first Black Friday with money to spend and I kinda feel sick about how little control I had when I saw a good deal. Keep in mind that I have none from any of these companies rn.

    - Crazebra from FYW
    - Active Pro Mod
    - GT-E1 icey whitey
    - Yancy Customs Apex
    - Analog Snot Rocket Squab
    - Krom x Beams OK
    - Krom 2017 Pro Mod

    And then in non-dama land, I bought an echo dot, a wireless speaker, a new basketball, wireless headphones for $10, a new DS4 controller. Pray for my wallet

    Not really into vid games. Is DS4 controller meant to be PS4 or is it some other console..? Or just. The name of a special controller?? Echo dots are ok, I’ve had one I got as a gift a year or two ago. Use it for weather updates. News briefings in AM and Public radio for my dog when I leave home..

    Ugh I really need to resist cyber Monday..! Just copped a Sweets v14 prime custom peppermint BonBon on Zebrano ken(don’t own any zebrano yet) it was 40% off so came to like $28 after shipping. Also went back on Krom’s Site when I saw ‘17 promods on sale after work today. Had to cop that JakeFischer promod.. and support the fellow KY dude!! Was like $18 after shipping.

    Non Dama related.. had to buy 2 new tires today for my car too, so my bank account is really feeling it after this wkend lol

    Yeah the DS4 controller is "DualShock 4", which is the PS4 controller. They happened to choose a name w/ a confusing acronym lol.

    I got the Fischer mod too! Maple seems smart and the color is nice.

    May your new tires remain unpopped, and may their tread last long :)

    Yeah can’t go wrong with Maple(although I haven’t found a wood type that I’m not really into yet, they all seem to have different advantages/disadvantages to them) and yeah that color is nice!! Kentucky Wildcats Blue..! :) go cats!!

    I got a KD mod. Somehow resisted copping a prime custom. Sweets has played black friday well, with the discounts, raffles, extras, double dama dollars, etc. Make it super tempting to buy like 1000 damas from them lol.

    Not a Black Friday deal, but I'm pretty hyped to be able to cop the Goon mod from Terra's Natura Pro Model Series! It was a pretty hard decision between the Goon or the Missu mod lol.

    I'm really curious who won some of the KUSA prizes... There were some rare and epic giveaways to be had.

    Not any damas actually this year... nothing that really caught my eye as a "must have". Waiting for the GT x Legaxis drop.

    Copped a Slayers Club x Luzumaki long sleeve, and I am thinking of getting some more clothes from Cyber Monday sales.
    Nothing interesting lol.

    Sweets kendama has mystery Prime kendamas on sale for $20. You have no idea what they are going to send you, but then I have gotten a lot of one off or experimental tamas that way. I almost never pass up on the Mystery Sweets kendamas. It is a cool little gamble for sure.
