    You guys have that one special kendama? Like no matter how much you play with other kendamas this one is the one you still land all your new tricks on and just feels perfect. For me it would be my kusa Zack Yourd pro model. What's your guys special kendama?

    It was a custom request with wood from around the world. Kendama is Maple(Canada)/Ipe (Brazil)/Ebony(Africa, country?) and Keyaki (Japan) Tama. Se llama Enrique

    No probably not, but it’s going to be super tempting. I’m actually looking for a good way to display it if anyone has any ideas. I was thinking a sports collectible clear acrylic case.

    Around $270. A pretty penny. But it looks like a piece of art. And a clear case sounds pretty good to me just make sure you secure it so it doesn't fall over or anything.

    Maybe it's not a jammer. But I saw a special kendama topic and I think it fits quite well.

    I would probably say my Alex Ruisch Legend Mod I got back when I visited Hawaii because the weights are just perfect. Lunars and juggles feel a lot better on it compared to my other damas. One thing that makes this special is that this is my first and last dama I will have ever purchased from HNL Kendama's walk-in store. I got it on the day before the last jam, and it's my only memory of Hawaii I have left.

    Not a specific setup, but my Sol Vibes Blueberry Frost (aka Static Shock) tama from the first Vibes maple run. No matter what ken I pair it with (kinda always switching my setups around) any setup with that tama plays amazing
