    All said and done Chad is the man and it is all getting taken care of. Off weights with top notch customer service, not a bad thing. I think I just got a couple flukes that were off weight.

    ya, probably so. My walnut stripe seems to be weighted well, even tho I don't have a scale.

    Krom Ash Slaydawg Bonz Mod - 83.4g tama with 70.5g ken (12.9g difference)
    This effects playability way more than I expected, especially with hand rolls and throwing tricks . I have had much better luck with Maple Slaydawgs opposed to Ash. They always have less of a weight disparity in my experience.

    Anybody ever tried correcting the weight? Like pinewood Derby style lead weights added to the serrado, maybe drilled holes in the center of each cup and pouring in molten lead.

    No pix of some sarado mods done a while back but do you consider sticking a 3cm long bolt in the ken to make it heavy enough to do lighthouses easily a "correction" then yes, done that. ;)

    It has insane lunar balance, but an airplane yank destroyed my wrist, which is why I play with my feet

    I've got a prime with a 20g heavier tama, though I've found I don't mind the Tama being a lot heavier than the ken. It still plays really well. If the ken is even a little heavier than the Tama it throws me off a bit, but the opposite is fine even with large spreads.

    disclaimer: I don't have a scale
    but, I got a terra pill today, and as soon as I picked it up I could immediately tell that the weights were wack. the male sad is super heavy and the female really light. Like when I try to do a handroll, the entire things flys off my hand. kinda sucks cuz I can't do string flow on it and thats kinda the main point of the pill:(

    I have an old school shin Fuji, talking about weird weights. The tama is 54g. The ken was around 80. It was weird. Like pulling up air when you played with it for a while.

    Wow! Thats actually pretty wild, I don't think I've ever seen a pill half that light.
    Did you get it through the Terra online shop? Or somewhere else?
