I could never afford S8 tops before and they sold out on most stores when I was still just starting to play so I'm so excited new tops are coming!

I'm going to be setting aside some money just for these and basically not buy anything else hobby related for a few months. A jaw chuck for my lathe will have to wait  ;D

what are the names of these beauties ? ;D ;D

With Silvia, my mate, we decided to give the names of our grandmothers because they grow our families strong.

Dionisia (ex Sofia)

This name derives from the Ancient Greek name “Diónūsos ‎(Διόνῡσος) > Diónysos ‎(Διόνυσος)”, composed of two elements: “Zeús ‎(Ζεύς) Días ‎(Δίας)” (Zeus, heavenly, divine) plus “Nûsa ‎(Νῦσᾰ) Nýsa ‎(Νύσα)” (mountainous land where the Hyades raised the infant god Dionysus). In Greek mythology, the mountainous district of Nysa, variously associated with Ethiopia, Libya, Tribalia, India or Arabia by Greek mythographers, was the traditional place where the rain-nymphs, the Hyades, raised the infant god Dionysus, the "Zeus of Nysa". This name is linked to the Thracian Olympian deity Dionysus, the god of wine, parties, and festivals, madness, chaos, drunkenness and pleasure of eternal youth. He was depicted in art as either an older bearded god or a pretty effeminate, long-haired youth. His symbols include the thyrsus (a pinecone-tipped staff), a drinking cup, a grapevine, and a crown of ivy.

Augusta (ex Giulia)

This name comes from the Latin superlative "Augustus" (sacred, holy, august, majestic, sublime, venerable, solemn) from "augĕo > augēre" (increase, develop, enlarge, strengthen, enhance). Augustus (Latin: Imperator Caesar Divi F. Augustus) was the founder of the Roman Empire and its first Emperor, ruling from 27 BC until his death in 14 AD). St. Augoustinos was bishop of Hippo Regius (present-day Annaba, Algeria). He was a Latin philosopher and theologian from the Africa Province of the Roman Empire and is generally considered as one of the greatest Christian thinkers of all times.

Rosalinda (based on a Larry draw)

This name derives from the Ancient Germanic name “Roslindis” composed of two elements: 1) "(h)ros" (horse) plus "linþia" (weak, soft, tender, mild), but interpreted as "docile horse, trained horse, meek horse”. 2) "*hrōþiz" (praise, fame, glory, renown, honour) plus "linþia" (weak, soft, tender, mild). During the middle Ages it was associated with and influenced by a name with separate origins in the Latin / Spanish “rosa linda”, “Linda” meaning (Beautiful) and “Rosa” meaning (rose). From this root the name can only mean “Beautiful Rose”.

Elisabetta (to come, a koma top)

This name derives from the Biblical Greek “Elisábet (Ελισάβετ)”, a form of the Hebrew name Elisheva ('ĕlı̂ysheba‛), which in turn is composed of two elements: the “ʾēl” (God, the God of Israel) plus “sh'vu'a (sh-b-ʿ)” (oath). In turn the name means “my God is an oath, my God is abundance”. shavu'ót (plural form) is a Jewish holiday that occurs in the spring, a harvest festival, also commemorating the anniversary of the giving of the Ten Commandments to Moses and the Israelites at Mount Sinai. This name and its variants are spread all over the world.

Also the first letters of the names compose D A R E

Also every Granmother had a Nickname that could be the name of the keychain version of each top.

Enough?

No? well finally the shop will be online with the tops available, t shirts, spares and merchandising.

I've been following the updates on Instagram and I cannot wait for these to be released. I'm so curious about the two strange shapes.

I'm curious when they will show up on a local site but I've been wanting to get another koma as well so I might just have to buy one on spingear.

Looks like reviews will be coming soon to this channel. I like the contrast between the metallic and delrin surfaces!

Good!
Did he get them for free? Lucky guy!

I would have had a review already if the post had been faster.
But Kanta already received his worlds first place prize:



I say he can play pretty well with a western type spintop.

are there any shops selling the rosalinda in the USA? and are they all ball-bearing tips? and are the tips compatible with previous strumol-otto tops?
