Wow, my first time posting in the kendama section. I had a hard time figuring out whether to bump an age old thread or start a new one. After I chose an old one, a warning popped up stating that I might want to start anew.
My first impression of kendama was playing one that belonged to someone at a club meet. I gave it a try, and I liked it, because it felt like a nice little escape. That was months ago, and I finally bought some variety recently. I think I’m done buying them for a long time though, because I don’t anticipate it will catch on like yo-yo. It is pretty fun though.
So far, I have the big cup, small cup, base cup thing down and working on the spike. You know how I am…had to find some variety to keep things interesting. I decided to start with a stained Sweets. I like natural wood, but the stain added a little extra to the look. I also got these cute YYE colored minis to match the yo-yos, and found these weird metal ones online…pretty heavy. That should hold me awhile.
