A high quality piece, that's fun too! I like the way you can spin it upside down. Very stable on regular spins.

First impression: The packaging is really nice. It makes you feel that something special has arrived. The high quality of the top is evident as soon as you see and touch it. The finish is well done all over. In use: The top settles quickly. When settled, the top spins extremely quiet and balanced. You have to look very close to see that it is actually spinning. Spin times are not long, but that was neither advertised or expected. On marble and glass I get 2 minutes of spin time on average. It is fun to drop it to a spin in an angle. When the bottom edge of the body touches the surface the top flies around like crazy. I also enjoy flicking the handle during spinning, trying to destabilize it. It will shoot away and then regain its balance. Sometimes i dropspin it in an almost throwing motion. Fun! Get crazy, its so durable!

About

My tops are meticulously crafted in durable polymer using desktop computer controlled machines and hand tools in my home shop

I'm interested in making toys in short runs with consistent quality that appeal to people.

My home shop is located in my two-car garage and it's fully operational when both cars are parked.

Thanks for your interest.

Erwin
