Jose I have a few questions - is this a straight tip? Where did the tip come from?  What are the tip dimensions? What is the diameter of the rope?  How long - and where did it come from? And do you plan on making a video of all the tricks the top can do? Do you plan on selling these?  I hope so - I would like to see more people throwing big tops, and big fighting tops. And congratulations on making the the biggest - most beautiful top in the World. Plastic.
lets see, this tip is made of a 1" diameter stainless rod I purchased over a year ago. I had a friend who used to be a machinist make it for me. At the widest it is a little less than an inch. At the neck it is .38" wide and is .25" in length. The body angle is 55 deg. I went to home depot and bought a few ropes to try. The best was a 3/8" nylon at 10' length. I absolutely will not sell these. Printing 77 hour jobs is not a desirable task. I was happy to get this one done. I knew you might like it Cecil. Some day I might make another video but at the moment I have my mind on other things :(

Jose: Hope you and your family are OK after last night's M7.1. Same location as the M6.4, which I'm guessing is north of you.

Even if no damage where you are, must be nerve-racking.
We are doing well. Thanks for asking Jeremy. Lot's of broken glass in the house but other than that we are fine. There are many after shocks that make me feel like I am on a boat. Some people are leaving town. The epicenter is not far from us. There are fallen block walls burning homes and just general destruction. The kids are uneasy and quite frankly so are me and my wife.
