Strong work, as usual! When available, I'd like to buy one of those PCBs to use in my LEGO tops.

Relampago is going full steam ahead!  8)
Does the smallest tip fit a Spintastics?
Any new features you want to disclose of the PCB?
The small tip is bigger than the Spintastics tip to suit a 3 to 3.5" top so I don't believe it fits Spintastics. It might be modified to though.
I haven't honestly had time to work on the programming since my last go at it. My time is spent in design ,building boards, videos and my classes. There is also that pesky full time job that gets in the way. ;D
What kind of  classes are you teaching?
I teach yoyo and tops at the local library and toy store.

Sounds great Jeremey , I should be close to getting some out for sale.

Wow is right!  :o
It's wonderful to see the current US champ pushing the envelope.  8)

I don't recall Matt ever doing the ghost catch from a snap start: well done!
By the way, I now remember that ghost catch instead of ghost whip was the name he gave them.

Talking about ghosts, you should name those catches in the intro, ghost something: the string seemed to appear from nowhere!  :o
I had to watch it in slow mo to see what was going on!

The second open tip corkscrew with no setup, after the reversible corkscrew was really good and not something I have seen before.  8)

The whole freestyle is very smooth and has a continuity that reminds me of Tyler. Thanks for the inspiration!

Bravo Jose! Really nice!  8)
I can feel that snap whips will become new references...
Btw what's the name of that trick starting at 1:14?
It seems to be a "wheel of fortune" variation with one hand?
I've seen it before but never referenced it...

Hammers (translation from "martillos" in Spanish). So I guess you'll call them marteaux  ;)

Thanks ta0.
I was thinking Ghost Snap seemed fitting.
I love Tyler and the Czech brothers styles so they have influenced my play for sure.

I love that trick. Took me a bit to get it but it is super fun to do.

Thanks for the file on thing-iverse... Long story short, one of my friend was able to print it and MAN this is cool!

https://photos.app.goo.gl/WC2DS9D8W7dCIsw43

The weird thing tho is that the axle that came with the aluminum tip is not long enough but the printer of my friend was printing a hair too small so I had to bang it on the ground pretty hard to get it too go in. I don't have this feeling it's going anywhere...

If I had the time I'd modify the design to fit a spintastic tip.. the YYF aluminum is okay but was not that meant for regen. but yeah. This is amazing. I need to find the time to make my own design... That'd be so so so fun :)

Cheers and Thanks!!!!!!!!

The biggest differnce between that top & the QSH. While they have the same shape... or almost, it that due to it's extra weigth. it precess WAY WAY WAY more slower... Funny how fun and easy it is with that top... It does make me wonder how it is to play with a 4 or 5 inch top =)

Anyway. Thanks a lot

Glad you printed the top. Have fun.
Just checked out the photo. Looks like a good print. A few little voids but the shoulder looks good. What material did you use?
