Details of the freestyle comp?
Slaydogs & Sweets Prime are both larger than competition size, aren't they? Well, that's me out then. Cheers.

Beginners:
That trick is Flying Top, not Spinning Top. Spinning Top is a different trick. I believe there are books available with trick names in...

Bigger kendamas are easier to use. I've always thought it daft to allow different sized kendamas in a comp, so I never have. (Except where this is taken into account in the judging). I don't want to enter a comp where my opponent can gain an advantage by their choice of prop. So I won't.
Your comp, your rules - fine. I'll be at the back of the hall, doing grading exams. :)

May I suggest adding the tricklist names as text to the first post?
Freestyle:
For the first time freestyle is available for anyone to enter.
Not true. There have been either Best Trick or 7ToSpike freestyle divisions every year so far, which were open to everyone to enter. Please change that to "timed freestyle" to make it factually correct. Thanks.

Looking forward to seeing everyone down in Exeter.

Ha Ha about time!!

Looking forward to this.

Thinking Id probably stand the best chance in intermediate, but most of advanced is doable if I ride my luck like last year ;D

@Maicodama I guess mixed dams are also fine ie. I have an RWB Classic with Sweets arctic cushion tama? Although I may go full JKA on yo asses! ::)

I also have to agree with Void on the sizes, even slightly bigger is easier - I've been hitting some tricks on my musou for years but only now am hitting them on standard sizes, and a musou is smaller than a Slaydawg.
I still want to enter, I just think that even a smaller size up can give a player an unreasonable advantage

Just a note, the video is kind of confusing because the person doing the trick sometimes does some extra after. For a competition instructional video the tricks sound be perform as expected on the comp.

The trick videos is just to show how the trick can be done (the trick is also named below). We don't really like the rigidness of it all so there we are. Basically just bringing to life the tricks that are on the list. @shalafi

Don't you have an xl ozora? I'd be interested to see how that plays

I know, we just have different points of view on what a video for a trick list should look like, which is fine, after all this is a "discussion" forum.

Agreed :). Noted though. This is a bit of a learning process for me too so any suggestions or thoughts really help.
