The three new products are:

Neptuno Roller: the bearing version of the Neptuno



Mercurio Limited Edition
:



It is not clear to me why it is a "limited edition".  It does have the logo Trompillo designed. It also says "hand made".  I suspect the Mercurio is going to be discontinued in favor of the Neptuno but they wanted to produce some with that logo.  On the other hand, the fixed tip Neptuno has disappeared from the shop. Out of stock?

The Mercurio Oro: a gold color Mercurio, limited edition of just 100!



The shop clearly says that it is made of stainless steel, but on Pulp's forum some people think that it is made of brass. It could be a copy and paste mistake.  To be confirmed . . .

It is necessary to to be a mistake, the top is of brass, I have had it in the hands and can assure that it is of brass.

You were right, the Mercurio Oro is already sold out.  It lasted less than two weeks. But, lucky me, the day after Christmas Santa visited me again with a wonderful present from Javier C. of Trompos Space:



It had a couple of Neptuno Rollers, a silver-color Mercurio with the new Trompillo logo, and a golden Mercurio!  Thanks Javier!!!

I used a strong magnet to check the materials, and while the standard Mercurio can be lifted with the magnet, the golden one is not attracted at all.  This confirms that the Mercurio Oro is made out of brass not stainless steel.

The Mercurios with the new (fixed) tips play very well.  They are specially good walkers. The combination of metal body and light weight provides a unique feel to these tops.

The tip on the Neptuno roller spins smoothly.  But the spin time is still not as long as it should.  I suspect this is because they are greased.  I will clean one and test it again.
