This is our first time using bamboo on a Sumo and we are stoked! We made the decision to help cut some weight and give a new option to Sumo fans. We think the Golden Pheasant design pairs perfectly with the laminated stripes. If you haven't tried one of these XL kendamas yet, now is a perfect time to start!
:THE SUMO SHAPE:
The Sweets Sumo is a legendary kendama, that helps hone new skills and gives seasoned players something unique to play!
Back in the day before everyone started making kendamas with oversized cups, the only way to get something larger was to use a Biggie. The only problem with a Biggie kendama is that it doesn't have great lunar balance. To fix that, we cut off the spike and moved the cups lower. What you are left with is the Sweets Sumo!
The Sumo is designed to have amazing lunar balance, fit well in the hand, and have great tracking. This kendama is oversized and is not meant for competition. The Sumo will help you land new tricks, and is a fun break from a standard size kendama.
