Copper ain't cheap. There are Copper pens going for TWICE this much right now on MD.
You want a cheap top? eBay has plenty of them from China. 🤷🏻‍♂️
What is the word for something that is dorky, but not nerdy or geeky?

Hey, there are guys that collect Funko Pop dolls, and girly Sailor Moon figurines. Vorsos are a heck of a lot more masculine and industrial than dolls. 🤔
Has anyone ever had their top keep standing up after it stopped spinning. I'll play with my while messing around on the computer. Sometimes I leave the lights off and the minimal lighting from the monitors makes it hard to see the top spinning. It had been several minutes and I noticed the top was still standing up. When I leaned over to look at it, I bumped the desk and it just fell over. No wobble or anything. The only thing I can figure is that the balance was perfect enough that it was able to keep standing up on its own.

Pretty sure that means you're still dreaming, bud. If you see DiCaprio's wife running around, you should bail quick.
The best deal for these is on the basic brass machine finish top. All the upgrades are more expensive than in their site, therefore reducing the deal and in some instances actually more expensive. For example: Machined copper with ruby tip shipped to Canada ends up at $87 thru MD vs $84 on their website.
Anyway, I wish this deal was available a little over a month ago when I bought mine for $51 (machined brass/ceramic) from their website with free shipping but then got dinged with $9 import duty :( I'm not the best at spinning but this is a great top that can easily spin over 10 mins with just a little practice and is also very easy to spin. Makes a great top for beginners and experienced alike.
A lens to spin on is a must for these, got mine from an optics store for a few dollars, brass with ruby best spin is just over 18 minutes, great little top

Billetspin has some pretty sick spin bases available right now.

I’ve been using lenses, makeup mirrors, and a ClearCut Spin Station.

Hello guys, can we have in the description the weight of each models? The idea of these tops is that the heavier the more they spin. Of course it take a bit more torque to be applied.

The brass is 42.5g, the copper is 44.7g the stainless is 39.8g. Taken from Vorso's FAQ page (https://www.vorsospin.com/pages/faqs).
Like Rocman I am also not getting any response to my emails and messages from Vorso about my 3 week old order. Should I worry?

Because it’s not typically the manufacturer that ships it. You need to contact MassDrop Support for items you’ve order from here. They will be doing the shipping. Their contact link is on your Transactions page.
Love the copper when it is bright and shinny. my vorso copper looks dull after 2 weeks.
Is there any way to maintain the bright color ?
Shain
There sure is! Get a silver polish like Tarn-X. Dip it for just a few seconds, rinse with water, and it's like new.
Anyone know how to contact a person at Vorso? I placed an order three weeks ago and they’ve gone dark and don’t respond to my emails or messages. Terrible communicators.
Rocman
Is it regarding a top you bought directly from Vorso, or here on MassDrop?
Manufacturer offers free worldwide shipping and some combinations (i.e. ruby + polished copper) actually works out cheaper to buy it directly from them.

Given that the price works out pretty much the same for you, this doesn't make it a great drop, does it? :^)

I'm glad I waited. I was able to pick up the polished copper with ruby for less than the polished copper with ceramic shipped directly from Vorso.
Can anyone tell me if they got their top with Asendia as the shipping partner, or DHL?
What's the allure of spinning tops? Just a hobby? I see them on MD all the time but I don't know a single owner. Wasn't aware they we're popular.

Yeah, the whole fidget spinner fad lost me. These are a little more refined, as far as side hobbies go. I do like them, but I never owned a top, or was really interested them. I'm somewhat new to massdrop, and I was hoping to find good deals on things that interest me. I'm not actually sure how tops ended up in my queue for interests. But, I won't bash it, it's neat.
Noro
pretty much that exactly. I never in a hundred years tough I would spend $30 on a top but somehow I did and it is kinda neat. Weird times we live in, weird times. haha
@JonasHeineman whens the drop coming again ?

I am looking for the polished copper with ruby tip,
Whats the opinion on the saving from MD, for Vorsos ,
I see the prices on their websites and historic MD prices are close... with the additional waiting is it worth ?
Shain
I would say it’s a tossup. Price-wise, you’re only saving a few bucks with MassDrop, and if time is a factor, then I say just order it from the Vorso website. It still takes about 10-12 days to get from the UK to California.
My 1st Mk1 was ordered from the Vorso site, and my 2nd and 3rd ones were from MassDrop. Typically, the Drops have only lasted about a week. Shipping took 40 days (from date of purchase) for my first MassDrop Vorso, but surprisingly, only 13 days (from date of purchase) for my second MassDrop Vorso to arrive. Will must have had the tops all ready to ship when the Drop ended.
Ultimately, if you just gotta have it sooner then there is no real loss in ordering it direct from the maker. I like the idea of supporting this US-based company AND getting the top for a few bucks less. The wait is not an issue for me.
That said, if the next Drop doesn’t include either of the new tops, I will be buying direct from Vorso before the end of the year.
Fiddling with my copper MK1 tonight, the unexpected finally happened. It slowed to a stop and just stood there perfectly balanced.
These Vorso tops are ridiculously great.

What is that you're using for a spinning platform? I've thought about buying a slightly concave mirror and having a wood base to put it in.
Received my MK1 yesterday, and am enjoying spinning it at work today. It's so shiny and beautiful, and I managed to get a +10min spin already!

What were you using to hold/spin your tops on in this picture? It looks really cool! Sorry to respond to something 14 weeks later haha

No worries! That would be a J.L Lawson & Co. Spin Tray v3.0

Yup, Black and Petrol MK1 sure look interesting .
well I for one am very excited, this is my first top and I'm really looking forward to trying it out. Any recommendations for someone who is new to this for a good place to learn more? I'm particularly interested in finding a decent starter spin station .
All three of the Polished Mk1s together at last.

Yes, they were spinning in unison when the photo below was taken.

It was Spin, Spin, Spin, and then I started snapping pics. At first it was chaotic. But at one point they lined up all on their own and I just happen to catch it. 😮👌

Clearly not an easy snap to capture
Nice work 🤘🖒😊
I've never had massdrop ship early... let alone over a month early. But I rec'd my copper Mk1 TODAY!
Well done MD! Now... can you ship my Senn HD6xx now too? ;-)
Wow! I was expecting these to ship later in August. Just got a notice that it shipped today. My Brass and Copper Mk1's can't wait for their Stainless Steel little brother to arrive. ;-)
Maybe it is the pictures but don't see a significant difference between the machine finished and the polished finishes.
Just ordered my first top! Very excited.
I'm ordering one - it'll be my 3rd... QUALITY!
Just gonna add in that this top really is stunning. I've had mine a long time now and recently my spin times with the ceramic bearing have been around 21 minutes.
This is a great top. When my son was 4 years old, he could spin it!
I ordered yesterday the polished copper with the ruby and a vorso spin station. This will be my first top and cant wait. I see some negative comments and hope this is a positive experience.

This was my first top, and I got it directly from the company. Its still one of my favorite and spins very long and smooth.
AngelBaker
Thanks
COST 38£ with free international shipping on their website... so the price on MD is not good enough for 2 months waiting! And... WHAT A JOKE!!! the ruby bearing cost 28$!! much more expensive than on VORSO website (16£) WHAHAHA! MD sometimes you're really sc.......

I just bought a polished brass MK1 direct from Vorso about 2 weeks ago. Paid £40.00. That is $51.50USD! I got tired of waiting for MD to do another buy. Oh well. Mine is due to ship sometime next week, but it would have been nice to save another 36%.
I mean with international shipping, shipping fees are more expensive.
