I like 3M vinyl electrical tape for its ability to conform to the top's surface. I just wish they had it in transparent to not be visible.

But yeah, do anyone has a trick list for koma? I can Boomerang trapeze and do a rollercoaster variation but I search something for other tricks!

The names are in Japanese, but try here: http://spingear.jp/koma/2016/09/25/list/

Also, this video is pretty handy.

Trying to whip off the ground (about 18:14) is fun!

I just tried that whip... it's amazingly FUN =)

You can put a little piece of electrical tape around the metal ring and that will often help to force it into place.  If that throws the balance off, you can try moving it to different positions or add another piece of tape on the other side of that metal ring.  Hope that helps!!!  I spent a LOT of time with these tops for years as I worked on learning tricks.

Seriously, I have the QSH in fixed and bearing tips as well as the Strummol8's Sophia, Gulia, STB 2.0 and 2.5, and if we want to compare more "apples to apples", I feel that the QSH is on-par with the Sophia. So, if you want some top-grade tops without the top-grade costs, I gotta say the QSH blew me away. I do prefer my Strummol8's but I think that's because I'm used to them more. The only bad thing I can say about the QSH is "why didn't I get more?" and I can fix that!

Pull the ring out and stretch it a bit so when it goes back in it's nice and tight. I received one with a rattily weight ring and this fixed it just fine for me.

Yes this works well. but when you are too busy playing (lazy) to undo the tape, just tap the top crown down on a firm surface. The ring will pop back in place.

I had that issue with my fixed tip Trompo Grande. I don't recall at the moment if I had the problem with my QSH fixed tip. Jack advised placing I think plastic wrap over the part that seats into the top, then give it a good push. Let's just say it's working just fine in my opinion.
