How many Kendama brands are out there?
« on: 09 December, 2014, 16:50:28 »
Is it me or the number of kendama brands has been exploding lately? I can barely follow all the different ones that are there (not discontinued)

I was thinking of doing a list:

* Ozora
* TK16
* Shin Fuji
* Mugen (musou)
* SunRise
* Play
* Sweets
* Krom
* Croix
* KendamaUSA
* Kaizen (kind of KendamaUSA too, but different seal)
* Girr
* Clack
* Grain Theory
* Monk

And I am sure I'm missing some.

Isn't this a bit too much?

If you include custom brands there are more than people could think of.

Some more brands:
*Dragon
*Homegrown (a type of sweets but different model[1]
*Ultra
*Sourmash (he's got his own kens too!) & the Stove
*Deal With It
*PAW (very little created but probably classed as a brand I guess)
*Trojka (from kendama.cz)
*CWCS
*Terra
*Folken
*Hajimeteno (red JKA seal)
*Grip
*Steeze

I agree there is a lot, but then again each company have there strengths, I like to see new company's emerge but then it can be a bit annoying if they don't live up to expectations. That's why I personally go for larger ones. As I know I won't be disappointed

Homegrown and Kaizen count as models, not brands. We'd be here forever if you listed all models.

- Roots
- Catchy
- Yomega
- Bahama
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!
