@BKA and @Leologic777 - thanks for the info. Apart from Kendama, I couldn't read anything. And it's hard to search in the forum, if Japanese is all you have.

Lovely new TK16; and to think, the last one I bought, my very first kendama, turned out to be a Junior when I took it to the first kendama meet in Berlin! Talk about size matters...

I got a jumbo and a battlescar for my birthday. The more you play the battlescar the more the white will rub off revealing the red underneath, giving it a scarred look. The jumbo is way more fun than I thought it would be, so much easier to do tricks.

I brought these back from the IKO.
If you don't want to BUY MY BOOKS 😉, then why not ask your local library to order them in, and read them for free? That would help too. Cheers!

Just recieved this this morning, the new sweets bilboquet. Super fun toy, just starting to get to grips with it. It's worth mentioning that the photo was taken after about an hours play so any imperfections are because of that. It was absolutely pristine out of the box.



Here's my first clip with it.

Peat, I love that sick grain on that bilboquet! :o Ha like that stretch in the clip, sweet (no pun intended). One question, how's the weight?

The grain is sick right? Thanks dude.

This thing is HEAVY, it weighs in at 306g altogether. The barrel (tama) weighs 173g and the Ken weighs 133g.

For comparison my krom Viking mahogany weighs 235g, so yeah this things a tank.

@Peat Have you tried any spacewalks/suicides with it yet?  :P You should do a review on it... because I am seriously considering getting myself one as well.  :)

I'm really bad at spacewalks, so I haven't tried any yet. I've got mooncircles though and they feel pretty awesome.

I'll consider doing a review but I'll put some more time into this thing first.

Saw this at my local dama shop. I just had to cop because of the color and mainly because it's an Oozora! I love how these play! :D
