GT-Prospect The Stodd

Crazy to think someone offered me $180 for this 3 days ago.
I turned it down, this thing slays!

Their designed for playing, so play them. I would say that to anyone with a Mugen too

I agree with you @BenBenVx . IMO if you are going to spend 180 bucks on a kendama, then might as well play with it to get its values worth.     
Because spending 180 dollars on an ornament piece is just uncivilized in my opinion. Then again, I don't mean to bash those who do buy these exotic kendamas for display I mean they do look so nice though. Just my 2 cents.

I tried to buy a 2bears ken as it looked rad, had no luck and didnt expect them to sell that quickly. Did however get this lot in the post today thanks to craftybuddy, which is nice for a saturday.

This is what the Easter bunny brought me today. It's really great. I just tried it once before. Many tricks seem to be easier than with a Kendama, but of course I haven't explored all the possibilities yet. Tricks I landed so far are e.g.
Spike, of course
Swing in, also with one turn
Aeroplane
Earth turn, also with one, two, and three turns (if I counted correctly)
Reverse swing in, also with one turn
Lighthouse, or however you call it, when you catch the spiky part on the other one with the spike pointing upwards.
Downspike
It's a great addition to Kendama. Thanks to Krom for still offering pills at an affordable price. Some prices out there are just outrageous.

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!

@Void How do you just "manage" to get hold of those two?

I came across one on eBay last night for £383 plus £2.69 delivery (at least that was reasonable) ;D

@shalafi JKA Mugens were discontinued this very month, 7 years ago (2008).
What the trick?
