Wow!   :o
What fine presents!
The "ink blot" acrobat had a premium price with respect to the solid color acrobats.
Shootist is a very generous man!

oh i didnt know that there was 2 versions  :o is there anything structurally different or is it just the paint job??? the ink blot area feels pretty ruff and im very surprised but it doesnt seem to affect how it plays, weird eh???

Jack, I'm glad you like the spin tops I sent to you. I bought the 8 Ball and Acrobat for Omar (Forum Member) at the 2013 Worlds Yoyo Contest. I got the Colombian from the same event. When I received the 8 Ball Top the bearings and tip were damaged. However the top body was in excellent shape and I believed it to be an Eric Wolff creation.  I did my best to fix the top and make it spin again. Several years later and after looking over my small collection, I decided to send you those tops. I knew that you would take care of them provide them a good home.

I truly hope you enjoy them for a long time.

If Jack were commenting on this post he would say, "Jack is a lucky cookie, eh?".

So I will say it. The American translation is "Jack is a lucky cookie" so that will have to do.

Wow. Some nice tops.


All I usually get in my mailbox is bills. I think Jack has much better mail than most of us.

I'm glad the 8 Ball went to another good home.  Jack, if it needs repair, let me know.

I just now watched the videos. The freestyle in complete darkness is crazy!  :o

The only difference between the inkblot and the other Acrobats was the paint job. It originally cost $110 instead of $100 for the solid paint, bought directly from YYF (but I believe later when Yoyoexpert sold the remaining ones they were all the same price.)
