Just a quickie @BKA

If I were to put a Premium white Ozora tama on an Ozora Keyaki ken is that allowed for gradings and comps? Not that I probably would do this though.

@KenSan http://kendama.co.uk/approved.html :

Disallowed Modifications:
- Mixing parts of different kendamas
A fair question, since they're both Ozoras, which are approved. But our approvals are for standard issue models from the manufacturer. So sorry, but the answer's still no.

Thanks for the clarification. As I said I probably wouldn't do this as I seem to be a bit of a purist when it comes to swapping bits of kendama. Apart from beads and strings :)

How do you become a BKA exmainer?
1. Get graded to at least 1st Kyu.
2. Express an interest.
3. Contact BKA to discuss, and arrange a meeting. (In-person only. 2hr minimum.)
