KOMA tops
« on: December 08, 2018, 02:00:05 AM »

I bought a couple of these from spingear. Tons of fun! Are there any instructional videos out there? I can boomerang the top but not much else.

That’s great. Thanks!

The balance on the string trick seems to use a different top with a pretty sharp point.


What else did you bougth??

I have a couple more ordered than are in the pic. They are larger diameter and one has a longer shaft. I’ll post pics when I receive them.

Wow! That link is perfect! Thanks!

Any impressions playing with those tops??

It's a lot of fun, but it's very much a 'hardmode' on mexican trompos... The other
thing is that AFAIK, it's not possible to regen a standard koma.. But I might be
very wrong. It's more of a 'tricking' top!

It's honesty a lot of fun! If you end up grabbing one. Grab one with a weight ring...
To my exprience, I had a lot of trouble to master the boomerang with it but it does
spin a LOT longer...

Cheers,

I agree with all of this. I ordered another two with weight rings and one of the oversized with the long axle. They should be here in a couple days.
