Haiii!!!!!

Is is only me or the BK is a bad top... YYF Elec-trick is so much more fun to play with. The aspect ratio of the BK ask it to have a pretty big string but then it render tricks harder... I have a make shift 16*3 thread string, I'm able to properly boomerang it but it has a lot of vibe & I feel like the bearing is nowhere near as good as the Elec-trick... Anyway different top traing different skills!

On other hand, i was able to almost consistantly boomerang my very small wooden top :) I'm super happy! In fact I'm now able to almost consistantly boomerang all the top I play with \o/ !!! There is something so addictive about tops. I tried to get back into yoyo-ing but didn't work out. On other hand, I can see myself just wanting to play tops for life!!!

Let's say I own currently :
- YYF ShortCircuit & Elec-Trick
- BK

What would be the next step up for the next top. I intend to learn regens and I seem to prefer playing with fixed tips BUT the bearing tops are nice to have more time before the spin run out!
Thanks y'alls!

ps: the https://shop.yoyoexpert.com/collections/spin-tops/products/spintastics-quicksilver-spin-top?variant=18872880004 at YYE are absolutely stunning! :+). But I'd hope there is a way to convert them into fix tip top

Of those three tops the BK with a fixed tip was what I used for learning regeneration. Better yet is the Trompo Grande for its size. The ShortCircuit is great but I think the small round shape makes it difficult to learn to lasso in air.

I like that all yellow ShortCircuit you have! Have not seen that one before. How are you making string?

Well, take a peek at that video :

In the case of the YYF I used 14 thread of coton, as for the BK I used 16 thread of coton.

I'll keep that in mind for the ShortCircuit. I need to pin down my trapeze before trying anything else anyway. I'll work more using the BK.

Cheers and thanks!

I like the spintastics trompo grande as a beginner top.  The quicksilvers are one of my go to tops now I like to weight and how they play.  They also look pretty awesome.
