Is this the end of an era.  When did the first bearing tops come out?  2002.....2003?

Yes, the end of an era, but at soon to be 80 he has the right to retire, I guess  :D
I ordered a couple, plus extra tips.

The first bearing tops are from 2000. I believe Dale made the first prototype in 1998.
From the WayBack Machine, and ad on yoyoguy.com from August 29, 2000:



and one archived from the Spintastics site, September 2, 2000:

I love my QSH!  I'd certainly order two more, with fixed tips.

I can not seem to make PayPal work, but would be happy to mail you a check.  Please advise of address, and total cost, with shipping....

This really feels like the end of an era... Even tho I've been in this community only for 2 ish years at this point...
I am curious about the future of tops if spintastics dissapear!!!

I absolutely adore my QSHs & my Hornets... I'll buy a couple of each :)
I've sent you an email Dale!

Cheers

The Quicksilver tops are timeless. They are the Les Paul or Harley of the top world.

I received 3 bearing and 3 fixed QSH.....I already had more than a lifetime supply but Bought more anyway.These tops are nearly indestructible and I still regularly use my blue splash fixed tip just about every day. It’s been in use over 5 years! I will be checking my tip supply and probably looking for a few more sometime soon.

A big thank you to Dale for making the QSH top available...and for the patch program which provided a clear path to success.

Thank you so much for spintastics tops!!!

I don't think I'd have progressed that much if I didn't buy this black hornet 2 years ago... =)

QSH is amazing but I do love a lot the Hornet. It's the first top I was able to regenerate on =)

Thank you!!!
