It looks like it goes and goes and goes.  Thanks for the video.  I especially enjoyed the snap start.

Thanks so much Chris! Great job on the video.
Was hoping it would ensure all the tickets got sold, but they sold out early.
I'm really looking forward to the videos from the Europe tour. Something to inspire a new generation of top spinners.

Would y'all say you prefer the one way bearing in big (bigish?) tops over fixed tips?  Stoopid question???

1wb is very cool in a Giulia, but in a big top it is a different world.  A better place.  Mucho Gusto.

I have perfomed with Rege  in a few public shows now and I gotta say this larger size top and a 1wb is a killer combo quite a confidence builder ;D

Alan did once say that Rege and Brutus were brothers.  mtntop, I guess that means we are related in one way or another!  Glad to hear you and Rege are getting along so well.
