Title: Hi Everyone!!! (Orbits video)
Post by: John Buechele on July 04, 2009, 10:33:18 PM
Hi everyone. Thanks ta0 for this forum. I was very sad when topspinning.com went down. Anyways glad to see that the world still spins and so do we ;) Anyways here's another video if anyone cares to see, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1DM13oSkVYY . It's all orbits. Also I am using a newly modified top in this video. I took the bearings out of my Quicksilver (they didn't spin well anyways) and I replaced it with a spintastics fixed tip. Also I fitted a trompo grande cap instead of the cap on the quicksilver. It plays awesome. So hopefully you all enjoy the video. Thanks again ta0 for the forum. Happy 4th everyone.
Title: Great Orbits!

Undeniable regens!

You went for about 4 minutes 38 seconds with the full orbits (magnetic wire)! At 35 orbits/minute that's about 162.
And you had about 2 minutes 15 seconds of right half-orbits. At 80 orbits/minute that's about 180.

Thanks for the video.

Great regens. I use the same QS tuning and the quality of playing raise a lot.

I tuned too the tip and the apical area of the body. Next day I'll post it. Now I am far from the main computer. (In the mountains typing the iphone) ;-)
