Just bought a couple of play kendama. Really impressed with them. The monster grip is loads of fun.

Nice pair, John.
I got this translucent green Ozora recently. It was issued to coincide with the Fujiwara Cup this year. There was a separate yellow one for entrants only.
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!

Nice @The Void is that tacky like a premium or more regular ozora like?

I got "a few" Kendama co ones from their closing sale.



The Zens are for workshops. The other three are ash, keyaki and beech shenzus.

Do you know how to identify them? They have different color beads, but no sign on the package. The ash one is easy, the keyaki is harder

I quickly tried one Zen, felt very good, but that was just a quick taste. Haven't played with the Shenzus yet.

I picked up an white aqua stripe zen, a natty zen (curently getting the Kayadama treatment) and a natty Shenzuh simply because I had never had or played one before either(and this appears to be the last chance to do so).

The Shenzuh looks very similar to a Royal kendama especially slip ring and base ring wise and plays similar too. It isnt quite as well finished as the Royal IMO but is a nice kendama for sure.
I put some tracking stripes around the hole and had a little jam with it, but I decided to give it to my 7 year old who has suddenly got back into playing kendama  :D (probably because we hid his 3DS as his ears had stoped functioning whenever he was on it!)
