New! Ozora Premium Edition Red Kendama feature a new 'sticky' metallic paint finish for high performance play. The new paint has been produced with the full approval of the Japanese Kendama Association for competition use.
The Ozora (aka Oozora or Big Sky) Kendama is approved by the Japanese Kendama Association (JKA) for competition use. JKA approved kendama carry the JKA endorsement sticker on the handle of the kendama. These are nicely balanced Kendama, better suited to more experienced players since the paint does chip and mark quite easily. Some players feel the superior weight distribution helps you to perform more complex tricks. For this reason the Ozora kendama is preferred by many more experienced players.
Sold in the original Japanese packaging with instructions (in Japanese) and one spare kendama string.
Notes from Kendama-World: Ozora have worked with the Japanese Kendama Association (JKA), who are the governing body for kendama competitions in Japan, to produce a new line of non-slippery kendama. The JKA have approved this new Premium paint finish for competition use. The paint on this Premium Ozora is notably sticky to the touch and will help players master advanced tricks. The paint is not like the rubber paint finishes on some other makes. The new paint is said to be very strong. This gold premium edition Ozora is the second colour released in this new line of Ozora.

Bought this because I impulse-purchased a Kendama at a festival and found the shiny coating very slippery. The Ozora has a slightly tacky surface which makes some tricks a bit easier for a beginner. Delivery was also very quick. Recommended.
