Every finalist should have received an email with a link to vote. Please contact us if you haven't.

The most dangerous trick (to the player), was probably the last trick from Rocco Costa, "Il Trottolaio":

Crazy, but a great guy. Thanks for representing Italy!

USA Today article says one can get a 3D printed apartment for about $100,000!  Mighty Buildings is the company.  They are comparing it to the old Sears kit homes from years past.

Working on a set of LEGO compatible parts to make simple flick top fighters.

Eager to see what you come up with!

Found your YT channel today excellent content can't wait to watch more.

Too kind. Please let me know which tops caught your eye.

Interesting with the ball tip for LEGO tops. I've noticed with the 3D Beigomas the ball tip seems to win the most too.

Seems to  be a consistent observation. Don't fully understand it, but ball tips definitely promote the conversion of spin angular momentum to travel, thus increasing the top's linear momentum (taken at its CM).

In a head-on elastic collision of two identical balls (think billiards), the one approaching with the lesser closing speed ends up leaving at the greater speed. Could figure into ejections.
Nice, I like your billiard description it makes sense! I'm very inspired by your top shooter and boomerang top!

I am humbled to be on this list. There are some names that I think should be added to those lists, but I would not remove any either. What a tough job! Thank you for your work, Review Panel, whoever you are.

Congratulations to the finalists!

I will later also post the players who got some votes to be in the finals but didn't make them (pre-finalists?).

We are setting up a system for the finalists to vote. I will send them an email when we have it ready.
If a finalist doesn't vote, he is disqualified, so it's very important for finalist to rank the best other 5 freestyles in their division(s).
I added links to the performances to the results page https://spintops.org/2020-world-results/

All the players who participated should be proud. It takes courage to be willing to be judged. I plan to feature some of those performances in this thread in the coming days.

Awesome!
I like the pink tops the most actually and next the wooden ones, and remember: pink is lived by a lot of boys even if they don't say it... ;)

Well, now we've been outed. I might as well fess up to owning lavender polo shirts while we're at it.

BTW, pinks, purples, and pale blues figure prominently in the LEGO sets targeted at girls. Many adult male LEGO fans shunned these colors at first but now use them without hesitation.

Sorry Cuper about your disqualification.  I also was once disqualified in a world contest.  I believe we are part of a very small club.
