The Super Stick is another level of progression we are excited to offer. The tama is much tackier than our standard competition gloss paint, making it perfect for learning high level technical tricks. Practice on these to train your muscle memory, and take your trick vocabulary to the next level. Each Super Stick model comes with free stickers, an instruction booklet, and an extra string and bead. This high quality Kendama has only the best beech wood which is FSC certified, to ensure sustainable forestry practices. It has an improved handle assembly to create the strongest Ken ever made. Unlike older traditional style Kendama handles, this contemporary style 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. The cup piece will never fall off like other brands. The Tribute Kendama uses a superior quality string, which is custom woven with high quality fibers and offers more strength and flex during play. The handle has also been beveled to reduce friction, and eliminate the need for string guards. What is a Kendama? This stylish Kendama is an extremely addictive wooden skill toy that comes from Japan. It strengthens hand eye coordination, balance, and reflex. It can be played by young and old alike. There are endless trick possibilities for both the beginner and the seasoned master. The Kendama is made up of the "Ken" (handle) and the "Tama" (ball), which is connected by a string. The Kendama tricks are done by variations of juggling the ball in the 3 cups, spiking the ball with the Ken spike, and balancing both in new creative ways. Mastering the Kendama takes practice, focus, patience, and creativity.
