Hey everyone, we had a small delay in getting this last drop out but are now back on track! Every top should be in the mail on Monday/Tuesday! Thanks again for all your support! -Matt & Jen
Just got the new raindrop top its incredible with its spin out. Can't wait for this one.
I dont think any of those can compete with a 4-hours spin: I've already orderer 3 of these (1 for me and 2 for my clients, this is the best geeks gift EVER): https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/fearlesstoys/limbo-the-magical-top-that-spins-for-hours
I have a copper Yakima I've owned for a while now. It's a very fun, acrobatic top that spins for longer than expected. My best spin so far was 9min 53sec (NOT including the time after it spun on its side).
Now to just get one of those Rain Drops.
What’s going on with the pricing?

What about the pricing? 🤔
They are normally $38-$45. Good deal I’d say.

The prices in the blue box, finish options and check out page are all different.
Big thanks to everyone who got in on this last drop! Today we dropped them off at the Post Office and they are en route!
Thanks again! Matt and Jen
Damn, I'm from Yakima, and I've worked with hops. I should buy it just cause.
Any chance of dropping the Columbia Ls again?
Shazb0t
Hey, the Ls2 is all sold out but a Ls3 is in the works by summer 😉

Great news! Will keep an eye out.
Here's a sampling of mine. I have 2 Jeffersons (Br & Cu), 2 Yakimas (Br & Cu), and 2 Multnomahs (Br & SS).

Sorry Nano. This is my first visit back and didn’t see your request. Thanks artypan!
Bear in mind the Jefferson is the smallest top NWTops makes. The Yakima and Multnomah are a bit larger.
What color is the one on the right in the two pictures that have 3 Tops? I want to get one that matches my dark ebony Zippo

That would be stainless steel. I think the lighting might be deceptive in the picture.

That’s what I thought, wasn’t sure though. Thanks man
They have sells on their website all the time, if you want a better price follow their Instagram and watch for them.
Since the Hop was the last received, thought I'd throw out a Family Photo.

Thinking about grabbing one from their site. What was the price on this last drop?
This is the first drop I've joined, as well as my first machined top. I've gotten some good times already, here's​ one from tonight. 5 minutes 29 second on it's bearing, and 24.5 second side-spin. I also joined the Multnomah drop, and am excited to see it in person.

Bees I've managed was 4+ but I also have the flamed steel one
My HOP finally landed. Gotta love coppertops.
Yay for me. 😁 Just ripped the center covers off my plastic spinner, now it's a four top stand. 👍🏻

But one of the fun aspects of the Hop is the end of spin. Cannot be seen with a still shot, so here's a link to YouTube. Just shot the very end of spin.

I finally found a use for the $3 plastic spinners. Rotating top holder. 😁 Looking forward to adding a Hop to my copper pile. Going to need more spinners.

What a beautiful object. I'm not really into tops but I have trouble resisting.
EDIT: finally caved in and purchased the copper version, as well as thinking about the Yakima Hop in copper. I don't even need a new hobby!

Welcome to the seductive world of tops!

Love that music ❤️ Thanks for the post 🍻
Blue flamed Jefferson's are available at NWTops.com
Great little spinner!! My first one since getting a wooden one at Souvereign Hill about 30 years ago. Found the plastic lids off a margerine container stuck with bluetack in the centre, to supply a silent and reasonable spin time, however getting a 100mm concave glass lense was to go, 10 bucks off Amazon and current record for this top for me is 7:22. And they make an awsome sound when you first set them off.
I got this top a few weeks ago (2017-03-01). I purchased the copper top. Ba dump ching! Anyways, I really enjoy it.
Pros: ++ It spins for a long time (4-5 minutes) silently which it some cases I forget, so it migrates off the table. (Purchased a top station to prevent this now.) ++ It has a good weight and I love the ball bearing they encorporated in the tip. Very smart design. ++ The design and machine work is of good quality.
Cons: -- Not really a con, but it was a bit smaller then I expected, however I'm 6'2" so maybe it just appears that way to me. -- This is my first quality top, but it was pricey for such a small piece of copper.
Other thoughts: > I give it a 4.5/5. > If they made the grip about half the width it is now, it would be much easier to flick-spin it, but just personal preference. (Hope you're reading this NW Tops) > Despite the price, I am very happy with this top. I like the design, finish, and the ball bearing in the tip. > I would recommend this product.
FYI The maker has released another drop for his new top, the Multnomah. https://www.massdrop.com/buy/nw-tops-multnomah
Mine came yesterday. I love it! As others have said, it isn't as easy to spin standing up as some, but I haven't tried very hard yet. I'm sure it takes practice. But it looks fabulous! Thanks!
This one is DENSE. It's heavier than my brass vorso mk1.

Just received the top today. My spin times haven't been too high yet but I really like the wild side spin before it stops.
simmra
yea it's a tough to get a standing spin, but the noise it makes when it goes sideways is like an engine. VROOOM.
Hey everyone, all the tops are in the mail! Please allow 24 hours for the USPS site to update tracking info. Thanks to everyone who got in on this Massdrop and that support NW Tops!

Please bring back the astoria with the damascus body!
When are these tops being shipped? No information since long time...... Last update was sent on February 07th and mentioned that by Feb 13th there would be next update. This is Feb 13th..... ? What's up?

Good news, all tops in the mail :-) (See post above)
Thanks again for joining this drop! We have submitted the group's order with the vendor and they are working hard to prepare it for shipment.
We are currently working towards a new update system to reduce confusion in the Discussion and in the interim, all future updates on this drop will be sent directly by e-mail. Please verify your email address is correct under your settings so that you receive the latest updates for the group. You can change your settings here: https://www.massdrop.com/settings/user_info
To read more about the new updates please go here: dro.ps/updates If you have any questions, please visit our Help Center (http://massdrop.com/helpcenter).
Once a drop is finished, I understand the process of how MD works, but what's the typical turnaround before I should expect to start looking for a shipping email? (At least with NWTops, if no one can say otherwise...)
DeforrestKelly
Disregard, all. Just got an email this morning with info. That answers that. :)
Does anyone have a recommendation for a concave spinning surface that won't scratch brass?
MountainPass
Hey, there are so many options but a 3x vanity mirror from Lowes, HD, Kohls, etc works good and provides a large spin surface 👍
NWTops
Thanks, I'll try it. I just want to be sure I can preserve my tops over time.
