I don't know if I should play with it or just stare at it all day

You seem to be quite the "trader type", Dinger. If this is your first Musou, then buck the trend and Use It! :)

I play with my amethyst every day! I just wasn't expecting the sakura pearl to look as good as it does.  I think I got pretty lucky with the woodgrain

$55 for a skillbo isn't that bad. Especially for a hand painted hand made skill toy.

But in other news got this bad boy in the mail today. It was a prize I won during a love stream event with roots kendama.

I got this during EKO, I've wanted one for a long time, but somehow the red ones are always sold out.

In fact, this was the last one on the shop for the color.

aww yeah shalafi. pills are awesome!
they have the same string length as a kendama, the same spike as a kendama, and the same sized opening for the tama.
and theyre perfectly balanced by terra. mine is 68g for the "ken", & 68g for the "tama". but i dont think i got 'lucky'. im positive they weigh each piece separately. because, my pill is not the same chunk of wood, cut in half. its two different pieces of wood that happen to weigh 68g a piece.

true, there arent as many tricks compared to a regular kendama. but its a great palette cleanser in between dama sessions.

I agree with you, guys, pills are much fun !
PikWik, if you wanted exactly the same weight, I think you're lucky, here are mine :
Lime green : k=68 / t=54 (122g)
Limited Edition Cherry Wood : k=77 / t=60 (137g)
Blue (2014 new boxes) : k=67 / t=63 (130g)
However, they all play well, each one in its way, the heavier cherry wood is really good, aside from being beautiful, with a nice clicking sound  :)

hah, thats awesome. thanks for posting the weights like that. it seems like the newer pills (2014) are a little more consistent.
i have one of the 2014 nattys, dyed camo green

Yes, it is a nice toy, some tricks are easier, but overall I also feel like it makes me better at Kendama.

We were playing some games of Ken with Pills, it was quite fun, mostly becasue we were both making them up on the go. Now that I think about it, they should be games of PILL.

That's right, Pill competitions would be a good idea. Something I also thought about : why not 2 Handed kendama, like the 2A in the yoyo world ?
