Aluminum - Anodized Black. Awesome :D
This isn't my first drop. Ordered the copper one. Fingers crossed.
I ordered the copper one, because of the weight
Ordereded one in copper. Good top.
Isn't this a typo in the specs?? Weight, copper: 3.4 oz (96.4 g) ????? 96.4 grams is way to heavy.. heavier than Tungston..
Or it's 16.4 g??
please clarify.. Thank you
I like this top. I got aluminum one, it was a harder one to spin at first. Now I can get some pretty long ones.
Received mine but the ball bearing was not attached when I got it. Bottom edge has a couple of small dings too. Does anyone know how to reattach the ball bearing?

My wife purchased this for me so I had her contact support through her account.
Hey @Orang3j3llo - Just saw and responded to your earlier comment. If you haven't already exchanged/returned the item, try to affix it back per my instructions below given from the vendor. If you have any issues we'd be happy to exchange. thanks!
Received mine. Very "spiffy". Quick question, how do I replace the ball bearing?

Is there a problem with your bearing, or are you just wanting to upgrade to ruby/ceramic?

"Extra ball bearing"?!? O.o Is it that prone to falling out and getting lost? And what's with the editor? It is just me?

Hi, the ball bearing was not attached when I received mine. How do I fix it.
Orang3j3llo
Hey @Orang3j3llo - Sorry to hear that! All the tops shipped with the extra bearing just for this scenario as they can fall out with use, drops, and temperature changes. Use a spot of super glue and then press/insert the bearing back into the socket. If that doesn't work we'll be happy to exchange for you. Cheers -
I got the aluminum last time. I must say it's not as bad as I thought. It will eventually stabilize as time passes it a neat top that was bigger than I thought.. but I'm fine with that. It's cheap, and spin pretty okay for what it is. Mine doesn't have any wobble. Fin.
I got the copper top last time. it is a good top but will not spin longer than a vorso or lambda. The top is a little top heavy and it tends be unforgiving to bad release technique. If the release is perfect it spins perfect but spin times for me are closer to 1-2 minutes rather than 12-14 min (i spin the top on an acrylic soap dish, glass might double the time). The shorter spine time is not necessarily bad-- sure a top is supposed to spin and spinning for a long time is a reflection of proper design and material choice, and if you just want long spin times get the vorso. The design and the bearing on this top cause a reduction in spin time compared to other offerings, but watching a top spin for 14 minutes non-stop gets boring and takes a long time. The shorter spine times on this top allows you to work on perfecting your spinning technique because it is less forgiving and it lets you spin the top more often. This top circles, wobbles then straightens out, and it just behaves a little more erratically than the vorso top which just seems to sit still and hover forever. I guess what I'm saying is it is interesting to watch it move around a little. It also does not have a lot of clearance between the steel bearing and the corner of the top. The top can tilt about 20 degrees before the edge hits the surface--again forcing you to be accurate with your release. I think the copper version is worth the price. I don't have the other variants to comment on how well they perform, but my hunch was that they would not work well being so light. Maybe other users who bought this last time can comment on the performance of aluminum and mg. Last thing is this top is definitely more pocket friendly than other designs. the long cylindrical body lets it disappear in a pocket without causing pressure points. Although the top is bigger than other tops, it has a smaller diameter and so this makes it more pocketable at the expense of being more top heavy.

Good to know. Thanks Lobster.

i can now confirm the bearing is held by epoxy or some other tough clear glue. A drop is applied to the cavity and the ball is pressed until it bottoms out. I was able to remove the bearing, but it took deliberate effort--specifically I had to apply horizontal force against the bearing ( shearing the bearing against a 2x4) with 20 lbs of force applied to the top in a sideways direction. this caused the bearing to come out and bounce on the floor. The bearing is replaceable if badly worn or lost, and you can probably replace it with a ruby or ceramic ball if you can find the right size--or potentially even drill the hole wider and insert a massive ceramic ball or maybe even a marble? just some ideas. The finish on the inside of the drill hole is rough, but this probably just helps the glue hold better.
From the discussion I would say this must be a repeat. Mine still says not enough have committed yet, but the discussion says all have shipped 5 week ago. :)

Yup, they did this drop a few months ago. And are doing it again now.

So I guess copper is back.

I have both the magnesium and the copper. Definitely not the best spinners, agree that the design leaves the center of gravity too high. When you try to spin it hard it just wants to go sideways. Think they would spin better if they hollowed out the spindle like my Lambda has.
I shall purchase and report back as well.
Center of gravity is too high. This is a wobbler. I would not waste my money, especially because you can get a Vorso for about the same money for this copper version and it will spin at least 10 minutes.

Agreed. I just see a bit too much brand bashing here and on other forums. Unjustified, I think. Any top you own and spin, your goal may be to beat your best time with that top. You can do this with Foreverspin too and not wait 10+ minutes for your next try. And they do look beautiful when spinning and appearing motionless. Again...JMHO
I just picked up a 50mm, 360g stainless steel top on Etsy. It's my workout top. "Muscular fingers bro"!!
I'm in if copper opens up more
Any chance they might provide some more copper for this drop?
EDC stress relief! Put on some Tibetan Singing Bowl music, drink some 'erbal tea and watch it go round...and round...and round...and round...and round...and round...and round...and round...and round...and round...and round...and round...and round...and round...and round...and round...and round...and round...and round...and round...and round...and round...and round...and round...and round...and round.
It is just hi-tech fun...and this is a lot cheaper than the one with tritium inserts! I'm just gutted there was not enough copper ones to go round. Quick, I'm getting stressed...see above!
I'm at a loss about this new fad. I quit spinning tops when I was six. What's next...EDC pacifiers?
I would also like to know how the bearing is fitted in and why an extra is included. the whole purpose of a top is to be as balanced as possible, which means precision. precision is not a bearing glued in haphazardly

I'd love to know as well, but my current best bet is a magnet press-fit into a smaller bore through the center; possibly a ring magnet, so the steel BB centers fairly well (assuming the ID and OD of the ring magnet are actually concentric...). I've been wanting to make a top like this, so I might actually try that route - restricts fancier ball materials, but being easily replaceable offsets that mostly.
If only this has a ceramic or ruby bearing. Blow much would it add to the cost?
