ABOUT SPARK SHAPE
We are proud to finally introduce you to the new Spark Shape. With the hard work from designing and testing, the result is absolutely awesome.
With a modern feel, the cups and stalls are significantly bigger.
Unlike the V4 Elite shape, we gave the ken a wider form while keeping it slimmer at the intersection of the sword with the sarado. That allows you to have good grip on the ken and enjoy easier slingers at the same time.
The unique feature of the Spark Shape: The hollow core design. As you may know, balance hole makes kendamas better for lunars by reducing weight from the basecup. The problem with having the basecup hole at the surface will reduce the momentum of the ken when doing kenflips, taps and slingers, not to mention difficulty for any finger tricks. With the hollow core design, we drilled a bigger balance hole, and covered the surface while leaving an empty space inside the ken. This gives you an all-around ken shape for all players.
With the bigger ken shape, we also increase the tama size to 60.5mm, to complement the overall playability.
