The Tribute represents a premium quality Kendama, pairing an unmatched combination of unique design with superior materials. Unlike older traditional style Kendama handles, the contemporary style of the Tribute does not separate during play, and simplifies the re-stringing process. The Tribute can be re-strung between right and left handed play simply and easily without taking the handle apart. A higher quality string offers more strength and flex during play, a handle that has been beveled to reduces friction and eliminates the need for string guards, and an improved paint formula make the Tribute one of the most durable Kendamas on the market. Years of experience and feedback from our Pro Team has gone into developing this unique model, and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
