    Dave was honored to have the opportunity to collaborate with Gloken on his recent Spike Hard Catch Low edit #3. During his last trip to Japan for Catch&Flow, Dave was presented by Yukka this rare Jumbo Snow-Gold Musou from famed kendama-maker Kazuma Iwata. Dave told Yukka that he would dedicate the Spike Hard Catch Low edit #3 to Gloken for gifting him this awesome Kendama. From Dave: "The sound and playability of this Kendama is unreal. I did by best to help capture what this Kendama sounds like while being played. It has deep clicks, not too tacky but forgiving tama grip and amazing balance feel. Thank you Kazuma, Yuka, Tomatsu, and Zoomadanke for letting me experience this Kendama. " Special thanks to Takeshi Kamisato (Duncan), Dominic Calimquim (Folken) and Carolina Herrera (E&R) for helping me film. Music : July - Terry Reid

    For me Kendama in general is many things. I like to think of it as a tool that has helped me get through life. It really teaches patience, keeps you chasing for something new or challenging, and creates an environment that cant be explained unless you are physically there to experience it. Kendama has given me more than I could ever ask for without even asking. If we apply the same efforts and dedication we put into life the way we play Kendama, there would be no end to our perseverance. Give challenges in your life the same chance that you had given to land your hardest trick and move with the same dedication to the next one.
