When you change this top it's so much more fun.

You can buy these tops on ebay. And if you want to do tricks - put the tip in a drill and modify it to look like a Spintastic C tip - a little bit bigger.

This is a good way to start off on big tops.

Yes buy the 5.0 inch. Then maybe put the tip in a drill and file for the V shape. Then use 1/8 camo cord about 10 feet long with a 1/16 loop at the end for attaching at the crown. I would prestain and stain it. Then come to San Jose, and I will crack it in half.

Yes Im getting the big one!!

Then maybe put the tip in a drill and file for the V shape.

I guess this will provide longer spin times, rigth?

Then use 1/8 camo cord about 10 feet long with a 1/16 loop at the end for attaching at the crown. I would prestain and stain it.
ROPE: I When you say camo cord you mean paracord in camo colours rigth? Also.. does the prestain and stain... helps for the winding/trowing?

Then come to San Jose, and I will crack it in half.

I would love you to crack it!! But first let me play a little!!!

50 FEET POLYPRO CAMO CORD 1/8 # 4 IS WHAT I BUY. This is good fighting line and does well on tricks. This line only works if you turn the body down.

Just bought a new one on ebay. I just put a stain on it made a 1.0 crown from a dowel and glued it on. I took a hand drill to the tip with a file, and left the body alone. Hits target good, and tricks good. Video on the way. I'm hoping this one will hit a target at 26 feet.
This is fun top throwers should try it.
This is an old video.
