Awesome work.....looks beautiful!

Thicker shorter rope, and a smooth pull is about the only thing I have found that has worked for my bigtop experience.

Good luck!

I think all of you are correct. I'm going to work on a smooth throw with the 1/2 rope. No matter what big, tops wear me out fast.

The line is 12 feet when I go to 10 feet it's a lot easier. If this top was bearing and throwing at 8 foot line every thing would work better. The problem I'm having is still to long of a line for my age. My grandson is 20 and has an arm. I want to see what he can do with it. I still want a top that can do long wire walkers and a stair way to heaven. And the next problem is my Grandson loves BEARING TOPS.

Your persistence is noteworthy.  "Some people just don't give up" is a phrase that should be in the hall of fame along with "If your tops don't scare you they are not big enough."  Good job on the boomerang and the tricks but, honestly, I was scared when it almost hit you in the face!

Cecil !! SUPER BRAVO !!

YOU'RE one hell of a player-maker-performer

at the level of Joe Mauk !

keep spinning
there's nothing better than outdoors spots

about the throw i would have said the same as other players:
for large tops the "secret" is to let it unwind smoothly
and to skip tangles : to have the knot way past the maximum diameter
about your suggestion to change string : i've done it for a long time with big tops..the changing costs a bit of spin time but it is worth it for the tricks,considering the gyroscopic power of large tops

à bientôt ;) ;)

I’ll let everybody know I’m coming up on 71 years old and all the Trompos I’ve  made talk to me. Rosie, told me if you want to see what I can really do get the right thrower.  I don’t want Superman, ( Tyler ) or Super Boy ( Justin ). I want a BIG GORILLA.  The only big Gorilla that can handle this Trompo in my area is POP TOP.   So can someone out there get in touch with Bryan, and let him know Rosie, wants to dance with him?
