Marcel does a Reverse 2-Swirl Aeroplane in the video. I suppose that means either is acceptable?

Yes, he does. And you suppose correctly. In his original video file, he said double, nothing about direction. I think he always goes reverse for some reason.

Good to hear that, thanks for the bird note. BTO is up next, build to order. The guess is that everyone has a favourite kendama and we will happily hunt through our stock of interchangeable ken/sarado/tama selection and deliver on a "to within 1 gram" on each part. White string only for now. Tip: you need a good scale to measure to 1/10 of a gram, plenty of those in Amsterdam😎🇱🇺

Inspired by recall of players buying 12 ozoras, picking the best one and selling on the rest. Better go tailor-made (my dad was a bespoke tailor...a nod there, he would approve)

That's the end of the news.....

Definitely looking forward to the new batch of Sunrise kendamas! I actually bought my first one from you @sunnyD when you came to the Ballring with Jeffrey, and went through a few more after that. The lemon yellow was by far my favourite - the paint pretty much disintegrated around the bevel after a couple of months and it was the most ridiculous bird machine. Served me very well and played that thing to death.

Will there be any other treats in store for the new batch..? :)

PS for Void: I ruled the ken games at the Kendama Clash in Berlin last weekend with tap tornado lighthouses and candle downspikes :D Neat tricks, both of them, thank you for introducing them to me (one way or another - outlink or outlink, right?) - Cooper Eddy got a letter on each :D. And of course the forearm bounces, hehe
Well done, and congrats. Candle>Fast Hand Stab was set by Yoda in the Endless Combo waaaaay back. No idea if I'd done it earlier or not. Glad you like the Tap Tornado LH, and that it foxed people.

And good luck with your Biggest Kendama competition.

I know you worked with the tricks you were sent, but the difficulty of the gloken style cup is quite higher than the one on the real gloken cup. Specially on the lower levels.

Well, you should have sent us some, then ;) Anyway, I am now watching the videos and yes, of course, our level 1 corresponds in difficulty to KWC level 3. BUT, KWC level 10 (not even the highest level, corresponding to EKO levels 8-9) is mental, definitely harder than EKO level 10. KWC level 4 corresponds to EKO levels 3-4, I find the difficulty more or less the same.
So yeah, for EKO levels 1-3 you're right, but then the tricks don't get as hard as at the KWC. Also consider that vast majority of the tricks came from European players, so it's not like some outside force is at play here - from European players for European players. Anyway, the beauty of this format is that everybody can pick the tricks they like.
