Spin Tops


#1

So the beach was closed due to not enough parking, so my mom took me to the mall.

She did all her shopping and she took me to a little toy store for my brother.

When I walked in, I noticed a few yoyos. But they didn’t have anything really good, Imperals, Butterflys, Ballistics, and Speedles were all they had.

But I did notice a spin top next to them, and wanted to see what I can do with one.

I got the basic throw down, but not much else.

Anyone here do it?

I got one of the classic ones in a village for like 2 bucks. I suck at it, so I say that they are lame :stuck_out_tongue:

lol.

I’m getting ok at it, I can almost land it on my hand when I throw. ;D


#4

I’ve always wanted to try spintops, but I never got the chance to pick one up. They look really cool, though! :slight_smile:

Any hobby that spins - I do it!

It’s really fun…

I have two right now one standard Ripcord(fixed tip) and one modded to be a Bearing King(bearing tip), there is a third in the mail and old school Twin Spin from Duncan. I love them and seem to be doing them more and more. They are just one of many skill toys out there that some how relate to a yo-yo(my first love).

You can’t find bearing tiped ones in stroes, but on line you can find a few types. Here is the links. Ebay always has a few.
