This is the first 5 cup model to have the Tribute design so it is just as easy to re-string as the standard Tribute. The 5 cup Tribute Kendama adds all sorts of new tricks to your Kendama vocabulary, by adding a 2nd crosspiece, or "sarado". Another great accessory to your Kendama collection. Both cups are anchored in securely and reinforced, so the cups will never slide off during play.
I am very happy with it. It has everything I want in a Kendama. It came quickly; was packed well and your company allowed me to place a phone order.
