At a high level competition like the Kendama World Cup, the Kendama selection by players leading up to the event is very important. Most Kendama players have different damas that work well for different types of tricks, but for KWC you have to figure out one or two setups that are going to work for you throughout the competition. We figured it would be cool to show everyone what kendama setups the Sweets team honed in on for this years cup! (Links to purchase are there for products that we have in stock) -
