It feels like a beach ball. Not the best top, but I can still freestyle and do most tricks with it. It's fun!

Guessing you're already dreaming up tricks to take advantage of your newfound squishiness. How well does this one bounce?

The bouncing is not great and very dependent on the angle that the top has. But this one I can bounce off my head without much fear (there is still that pesky metal tip).

Nice very nice. The trick reminds me of the big Purple Heart top you made.

I experimented a little more by making the Ludo top with a mixed fill: most is 5% fill except the weight ring and the tip section which I printed at 90% fill. This is just one single print: I entered the change in fill in the slicing software.



I think it plays very well while keeping the squeeziness. We'll see what players think in Cleveland.

Thanks Cecil for remembering that top. I need to work on it again.

Just saw this listed. Not the best quality print, but interesting.

This does indeed open you a door to sell your top via YYE I think. I also think that Andre is a top lover too.. That might weigh in your favor!!

Cheers!

Yes, they are the future. Yes, we want flexible relampagos.
No, you are not going to die or become crazy.  :P

Also, I'm looking at my S8's and should I refrain playing outside on grass ( IE how more resistant is delrin compared to PLA / ABS ).

I have dropped my Giulias on smooth concrete many times, no cracking. Outdoor sidewalk concrete with a broomed finish will scuff it up pretty good, but it sands back out nicely. I have a delrin off-string yo yo with really thin walls that has seen some some heavy impact but looks like new.
