We are going to have again an online international contest and later the in-person world contest. The later will probably be the third weekend of October in a location to be announced soon.
The goal is for the online contest to seed the in-person contest and give some help to attend it.

What would be a good time to have the online contest? I'm thinking May or June. What do you think?

I see the pencil give a light line, have you tried different hardness pencils?  What about crayons, pens or markers?  Here's my top that paints:  https://www.facebook.com/keith.nelson.3344/videos/10157760101848199
I only used pencils that would end in the trashcan. Thanks for the tip! Next time I try markers!
Loved your video by the way!

I had forgotten about this one from Armin Kolb. I would rate the difficulty as similar to the moon top.



In addition to being tall, these finger tops are pointy, so they are not self-straightening as tops with more rounded tips.

Welcome to the forum Bailey!

Spintops are a lot of fun. And you'll find there is a lot of variety now that there is a fusion from many styles besides the US yoyo/skilltoy tradition (Mexican demonstrators, Colombian wooden trompos, European circus professionals, Japanese koma, etc).

Just wanted to drop a quick line introducing myself.
My name is Bailey Crawford and I've had interest in tops for a couple years, being that I've yoyoed for a while now.
I just recently swapped my main focus from yoyo to spin top. I'm an Admin for the website/mobile app SkillAddicts,
and Spin Top recently got added to the app causing me to break down and let it take over my life. lol
Just glad to see that this forum exists, because I've found no BST groups like I see in excess for yoyo.
Also glad to see that there is a community larger than I originally thought. I was thinking that I was a bit late to the game.
I try to post clips on instagram and tiktok if you want to drop me a follow I'd return the favor.  :)
Thanks Guys!

What I am really going for are ways to enjoy Don Olney’s collection.  Trying to visit it on a daily basis only seemed to work for a while.  Going out for longer periods of time when the weather was not too hot or cold left me missing out on a lot of good spinning.  This seems to add a little bit more fun into it and is pushing me to knock the dust off of rarely spun finger tops (it is cold out there so I have been moving as quick as possible right now-more peg tops later).  When people come for a visit during the whirled fest I will invite them to join in the 100 top club.

I would call it the 30,000 top challenge as that is what you are going for. You always go for extreme challenges and age is not slowing you down!

An alternative title for that photo could be:   At the altar of  tops in the cathedral of  spin

It should have been a Love top instead of an Augusta  >:D But nice photo for sure.
