For those who wanted a stainless steel tip that I had made....
I received the shipping notice and they should be hear next Monday. They were a little late but you know the saying.
I will be heading to Chico for Christmas so when I get back we can talk.

I have been trying new plastics lately. I am using PETG which is the same plastic used to make soda bottles. This is Ruby, the first top I have produced with it. She is very light at about 97 gm without the tip. This plastic shows great potential.

3mm thick walls
95mm width
105 mm tall (without the tip)
~122 gm with the tip installed.

That is a very attractive shape. I like the looks of the plastic as well...very uniform. Well done!

Looks very, very playable. Will you be using any of these in Reykjavik?  ;)

Ruby is lighter than I am used to but she is very playable.
I defiantly plan to use 3D printed tops in Reykjavik. Aside from Quicksilvers, printed tops are what I practice with so I have grown accustom to them. I want others to try them aw well and evaluate how they rate. Still in search of the perfect recipe.

The Tip and Top look GOOD. The shapes I like are the Spintastic and Ripcord and the look of the C - tip. Love to see a video of Ruby in action. I hope this summer Ruby can meet Rosie - my 10.0 inch top.

It would be great to get together sometime. We will have to schedule a weekend. I will make a video when I have time.

So on top of being a great top material, PETG is translucent. Ruby has a new look.

So I printed a green PETG top and an ABS yellow top.
The ABS top had adhesion issues between some layers and end up breaking during a throw. So I made lemonade and a video.

Very nice 2-minute freestyle runs! I was really impressed that you could do Staircase to Heaven in the middle of both freestyles with such heavy tops!  :o
Well, done!

So, is that yellow top the lemonade (after the top broke and was repaired)? The shape is weird but you make it play great!
