Up until this point, plastic kendamas have been somewhat of a novelty, lacking any real performance. The Catchy Air is designed to look and play different than anything else currently on the market.
The unique construction of the Catchy Air provides major benefits over traditional wood kendamas:
- Injection molded construction offers consistently perfect weight distribution. Weights of the Ken and Tama are consistently within 1 gram of each other’s weight. Target weight is 73.5g for the ken and 73.5g for the tama.
- Rubberized rings in each of the three cups offer extreme grip, making everything from lighthouse and lunar to basic cup tricks easier to learn and master.
- The POM plastic used on the Catchy Air will not wear down like a traditional wood kendama. This means that the spike will not dull, the cups will not dull, and the kendama will not age to the point of uselessness.
