I wasn’t sure where to put this, so I thought I’d throw it in unrelated Unrelated Discussion.
Anyway, I was at the local supermarket today to pick up some stuff. While walking through the aisles, I found a generic-looking wooden spin top in retro packaging for 99 cents and a rack of Coke in glass bottles:
I just thought it was cool that I found these two in the same place. Though I couldn’t help drinking it on the way home, the Coke bottle was surprisingly authentic. The cap wasn’t screw off, and needed a bottle opener.
So I’ve decided to get into spin tops(great, another skill toy to spend my money on). I have a few questions about the hobby.
First off, what type of string should I use?
Second, what would a good beginner top be?
and third, what length of string would be recommended?
Help would be appreciated. Thanks.
