Sounds cool, where will people be friday to throw tops..

In recent years, butterfingers and I have arrived on Friday afternoon at the University of Cincinnati to enjoy the tour of the facilities with John Marcus, and see how he produces his amazing spin tops.

I've not heard specifically that this is the plan this year, but I imagine it will be.  If you have never done the tour (and, even if you have), it's a "must do".  John only sells his tops in person, and that's an opportunity you won't want to miss.

Has anyone heard from John about this for this year?

I would also suggest you to try snap starting with two hands (easiest for me) and the foot start like the one Jorge used at worlds...

It appears he has 89k subscribers, so this could be pretty good exposure among the yo-yo crowd.

He says that Trompo Space is a Mexican company, which is of course incorrect. It's from Valencia, Spain.
The way the Graffiti is decorated is by water transfer printing film. Ture has also made some tops like that.

Just poke him via youtube comment. I think he's pretty approchable. That being said. tops really needed that kind of exposure...
On my end I'm sadly drooling even more on strummol8 tops :)

Just done the same, giving him the forum address and suggested Relampago spintops, I will hopefully contact Jose... 😀

For those of us with less experience....what problems are caused by moisture in the string?
For me the string becomes unpredictable and grabby. I also like the string to slide through my fingers nicely for regenerative play. Its difficult to do the tricks alone much more on stage and then add on humidity on top. I feel for the competitors.

This is being blocked because of copyright content (music?) even if I try vpn with a French server.

We did not empty Don Olney's place yesterday, but we moved enough stuff to verify that the floor is, indeed, carpeted.   ;)

You'll not want to miss checking this stuff out in Miamisburg this year....

There are some really wonderful items in the packages that went to Miamisburg yesterday from Don's collection. Many antique and vintage items all boxed up and ready for new homes. Mailman and I are planning to bring a second shipment with us when we travel to the festival. It should be a pretty impressive display.
