Rod's new mod - Limited purpleheart edition.

Rod has been pushing the boundaries of kendama and this was proved by his KTOTY 2021! With a durable maple ken, paired with the honed beech for the tama, this kendama is the ideal set-up.

Here's what Rod has to say about his mod:

"One of the largest parts of this, but maybe one of the most minuscule design-wise, is in the base cup, if you look it says 'SHCL' and 'Funk'. And that is just a shout out to two very good friends of mine, Dave Mateo and Dan Moe. These guys were guys in the community that had this love and this light about them that was really incomparable, and I just wanted to take this opportunity to help spread this light as best I can. So I hope that when you play with this mod, that you really feel that love and that light that those guys shared with me, because that's what I'm trying to share with you." -Rod
