Hello everyone, I'm new here.
« on: February 20, 2024, 10:42:29 AM »

Just wanted to drop a quick line introducing myself.
My name is Bailey Crawford and I've had interest in tops for a couple years, being that I've yoyoed for a while now.
I just recently swapped my main focus from yoyo to spin top. I'm an Admin for the website/mobile app SkillAddicts,
and Spin Top recently got added to the app causing me to break down and let it take over my life. lol
Just glad to see that this forum exists, because I've found no BST groups like I see in excess for yoyo.
Also glad to see that there is a community larger than I originally thought. I was thinking that I was a bit late to the game.
I try to post clips on instagram and tiktok if you want to drop me a follow I'd return the favor.  :)
Thanks Guys!

Welcome to the forum Bailey!

Spintops are a lot of fun. And you'll find there is a lot of variety now that there is a fusion from many styles besides the US yoyo/skilltoy tradition (Mexican demonstrators, Colombian wooden trompos, European circus professionals, Japanese koma, etc).

Hello Bailey.  Good to have you with us.  I see you are from Knoxville, Tennessee.  I do not know if any other top spinners in your state so it is great to have you in that region.  You aren’t super far from Miamisburg, Ohio so you might want to consider our fest on August 24th this year.

Welcome  Bailey!
As you may have seen here I would be interested in distributing your tops if you're able to... (Like "pay later" sell?)
Are they short circuit model?
Pm me if that would be possible...
Didn't know about your app, good job!!!
