It feels like a beach ball. Not the best top, but I can still freestyle and do most tricks with it. It's fun!

Guessing you're already dreaming up tricks to take advantage of your newfound squishiness. How well does this one bounce?

The bouncing is not great and very dependent on the angle that the top has. But this one I can bounce off my head without much fear (there is still that pesky metal tip).

Nice very nice. The trick reminds me of the big Purple Heart top you made.

I experimented a little more by making the Ludo top with a mixed fill: most is 5% fill except the weight ring and the tip section which I printed at 90% fill. This is just one single print: I entered the change in fill in the slicing software.



I think it plays very well while keeping the squeeziness. We'll see what players think in Cleveland.

Thanks Cecil for remembering that top. I need to work on it again.
