what is the difference between a spintop and a yo-yo?

not much, if you can throw like paul kerbel.
this is a really great spintop, or yo-yo, maybe return top trick.

Nice!!!

How would the judges score this in a yoyo contest?  How would they score it in a top spinning contest?

That is so amazing!  :o  :o  8)
In my opinion, at worlds in Prague he had the most spectacular, crazy, and entertaining routine. I was routing for him to win (I think he was 4th in the end).

I know Paul knows Gus (they are both from Mexico City) and I believe he has learned some spintop play from him. Maybe after he wins yo-yo worlds A-division he'll start competing in tops ...

waooowhh !!
this is one great trick, the spintop connection is obvious

i 'm in admiration at the way he removes the string and later opens the loop to put the yoyo back in place

super class
