Mi first one was a "natural wood" SunRise.
My favorite so far is the yellow Ozora (in fact Ozoras in general).

First:
Red TK-16

Favourites:
Yellow KCN Battle I've had probably 2 years. It's still so fun to play with
Wenge/Zebrano Terra, though its slowly getting on in age
Green OG Ozora: Love these things, they eventually lose their playability though. I've gone through three in the past, but have some more that I'm waiting for the right time to open.

@GODstrument & Alex. COPOUTS! Picking more than one favourite is too easy. Come on, desert island time.... pick ONE.

And seeing as I copped out too, I'll go with my white Mugen, as it got me my last two Dans.

My first "hand-me-down" Kendama: An old ozora ken (it was all beat up), with a green Tk-16 tama. That old kendama has been handed down from friend to friend and my buddy still has it. In turn, I still get to jam out on it every once in a blue moon.

My first Kendama purchase: A sweets Atack seafoam blue, I got a black stained ken to put the tama on and gave the brand new natty sweets ken to a friend in need. I love spreading the love.  :D

My favorite and current everyday Kendama: My natty Ozora. I play it every day and love every second of it.

Honestly, that's my kendama history. haha No other kendama in the collection.

First: Sweets dark blue transluscent, but I don't have it anymore. I do have my second though, a sweets F2 aTack rasta fade.

Favorite: SUPER HARD question! Some of my favorites are my beat up Sweets F2 rasta (my second kendama ever), Atlantic Cherry, and TJ Kolesnik pro mod.
If I had to pick just one, it would be my Homegrown maple. I've jammed that one so much...

A nameless used one that I've renewed myself, sticking a rainbow glitter foil  onto the tama, covering the ken with three paintings, one crackeling in the middle, covering the whole result with copper, gold and silver foils, protecting all of the cups' edges against further beats with more foil, adding big stickers of flowers and a smilie onto the ken, finally covering the now protected to a maximum wood with epoxy... :-)... I gave the name "The Kid" to it...and added a bearing like a crown.

But the (potched with tissues) items of the "Cover Versions" series "Lemon Tree" and "Strawberry Fields", recycled KROM-pieces, start to go for the first place of my personal list of the best ones as well...

Let me explain: you cannot know these series because I have not yet exhibited my little upcycling work outside of my "Mono Liso" facebook account, which isn't easy to find either... but imagine...
