We've teamed up with our friends in the Georgia Kendama Community (@gakendamaplayers) to bring you this Peach-themed Kendama. The GA Kendama Club has been actively growing and supporting the Kendama scene in our home state, and we couldn’t be more proud to collab with them!
A peach blossom has been engraved into the small cup, and Georgia’s silhouette can be found under the big cup. We went with silk paint to imitate that fuzzy, matte peach look and added white lines for tracking. This unique beech tama sits on a maple Kaizen Shift Shape ken with a new base cup hole added for amazing lunar balance.
"The Georgia Kendama club is for everyone. No matter who you are or what you do, we welcome anyone that plays kendama. Because we welcome so many people, we wanted to find something that unites us all, and that is our state. Our events are in Georgia, almost every one of our players lives here, and Georgia is home to our longest and most consistent sponsors, Kendama USA” - @gakendamaplayers
This is one peachy Kendama you'll definitely want in your collection.
Top notch kendama with outstanding craftsmanship!
A really nice looking kendama with silky texture, painted to resemble a peach. The paint job looks delicious and the green string is a nice complement! I love that the ken is the shift shape (my favorite of KUSA's shapes) with an interesting addition: a hole in the bottom cup to improve lunar balance. So, basically, this is a new shape of ken: the shift shape "2.0" is how I think of it. Lunars are indeed better balanced. The tama is beech and the ken is maple. My preference would have been for both tama and ken to be maple but I understand that beech tamas break in more easily for those bird stalls (and I love me some bird stalls!). Recommended.
To be honest, I'm really not very good at playing Kendama, but I enjoy trying to improve myself. This one brings my collection to 12 and is my favorite. Don't pass this one up.
