The Record S1 kendamas belong to the family of specials. The Record-S1 natural bamboo is made from a Ken bamboo and a Dama ash tree. Due to the optimal interaction of the soft ash ball and the bamboo wood, you will quickly receive a perfectly inserted kendama for noticeably better ball control. The S1 natural bamboo is available either in its natural state or with a transparent recpaint on the tama (ball).
Record – the Balanced Shape
Perfect balance through technical progress:
Easier catching game
through enlarged cups.
Increased spike safety and control
by new tama bevel shape.
Additional spike control
and rewarding clack sound by optimal Tama-Sorado fit.
Perfect balance stall and Border balance characteristics
through optimal mass distribution
(rim/cup volumes technically calculated).
Extra Lunar balance
due to central mass distribution
(development of Sorado shape and position).
Supported Whirlwind performance
through to modified Slip Grip:
Disctinctive Slipgrip for more grip.
Shift to the center for faster grasping.
4 contact points principle (slip grip - ball) ensures balance safety noticeably better ball control. The S1 natural bamboo is available either in its natural state or with a transparent recpaint on the tama (ball).
Looks even more beautiful irl
So nice and sticky this recpaint on a Dama that is getting better and better in playability the more marks and scratches it gets. The Ken felt a bit clunky at first but after two weeks of playing I'd rather call it solid. The loud and hollow'ish clacking sound is pretty gratifying when you land a trick just right. I really like it! Just looking at it makes me happy.
