Both of these look really nice, but I have to say the Tk16 Original looks more TK16 Ozora cross to me!

It seems like the Legaxis is moving in the direction that a lot of kendamas seem to be going in; bigger cups and tracking. (And... unpopular opinion alert... that's pretty cool!)
Ha ha ha (See pic).
That is one weird handle stall!

Hahaha!  ;D

The Legaxis looks beaauuuutiful <3
I'm not sure whose pocket they had to put money into in order to get TK16s back on the market, but it all looks good. 2017 has been a great year so far for kendama releases and continues to improve.

I would assume that those were made after JKA revoked seal status for Shin Fuji, but before Hakushinshya rebranded them as Minna.

Or perhaps they ARE Minnas, but Marc listed them under Shin Fuji because it was easier! :)

Today I've been looking around for the new JKA kendamas, and I found a new one on the JKA site:

https://iksc.stores.jp/items/5a5bed96f22a5b6d32002362
On the package it says "Kodama" (maybe it has something to do with Zoomadanke?) and it has the golden seal but with the 'glitter' (for lack of a better name).

So, if I'm correct the current JKA seal ranges are:
- Meijin (Teal) - from the old TK16 factory?
- Stars (Red/Pink) - from Gentoshan
- Kodama (Gold)
- Oozora (Yellow)

Time to update the collection... Anyone with experience of ordering from the JKA site?

And theres me who thinks it looks white.

Also @HansNickmans if you search the interwebs you will find that Yumu are to release a fully JKA certified and fully competition sealed kendama with an Aqua (IMO) seal. Apparently they will be available in Pro racing paint, Super paint and Sticky paint?!

@s070s Ive seen the Mejin in the flesh(wood) but not played it or an others for that matter. I honestly can't see me preferring any of them over Ozora, so am not really that bothered.
