The Element Shape from Lotus Kendamas is back, now available solo.

After nearly it's 1 year anniversary, the Element Shape has made it's rounds in the community and it has been described as "the best shape in the game" by some of the top players in the world. 

The Ken is created out of maple wood and features an super sleek Element colorway in the middle of the sword. 

This Element Solo Ken features Lotus's new "Lovely String". Tested to be the best string to play with for the most control and the least tangles.

About The Element Shape

Watch the Lotus Kendamas Team Unbox The Element Shape

The first priority when curating this shape was balance. We wanted a perfectly balanced Ken that offers the player the ability to rapidly switch between different styles of Kendama play. We found the ideal size fraction between length, width, and height. The Ken flips on a perfect axis, making all flipping tricks feel natural and organic. This shape is tuned in to everything - flow, flips, stalls, balance, lunars, and slingers. On average, the Element Sarado is heavier than the sword, which means every Kendama is desgined to be ultra lunar honed.

Sword

Height - We toned it down for the overall height of this shape, as it's a bit shorter than the Sacred Shape. It's still tall enough to leave extra space for a large hand, but we found that tapping and lunars were greatly benefited at this specific height.

Width - The curve and width of the sword is thin enough for slingers, but wide enough to give players adequate material to feel out flips.

Ring - We designed the ring to feel very comfortable in a hand, without taking away from the actual stall point. The ring gives enough grip to efficiently launch multiple flips, but it's not so protruding that it gets in the way.

Handle - The curve between the ring and the handle stall was designed to fit a thumb perfectly, and the indent is placed at a specific point to settle your thumb during juggle and late flips. The Handle edge adds a little more grip for ken flips, but again, not too much to stick. We wanted this ken to play off the hand quickly and easily, and the best way to do that was with this Handle shape. The Handle Stall is sized to latch and settle the bevel of an Element Tama.

Basecup Hole - The Element Basecup Hole was designed gigantic, as this greatly benefits both lunars and taps - as you will hear the hollowness ricochet when tapping.

Sarado

Width - The Element Sarado features a rare width dimensions at 76mm, longer than 99% shapes out there right now. As the KWC Box width increased from 75, we saw this as an opportunity to increase the width as well, benefiting stalls, lunars, and slings.

Stalls - The Element Stall Points are huge because of the extra room from the wider Sarado. We also angled the stalls and "cut" into the sarado so birds and stilts can effectively lock onto that edge. The Element Bevel fits perfectly on the stalls points, which is easiest to notice by pulling up a wing and feeling it quickly stabilize and sit.

Cups - The Big and Small Cup have a tiny difference between them, adding overall balance to the shape, and making small cup lunars slap.

Sarado Cut - The visible Sarado cut also benefits slingers, grasping your finger to help rotate around quickly.
