Chinese steel whipping tops
« on: January 16, 2019, 09:08:47 PM »

I've been looking for a steel whipping top, ever since trying one at the Whirled Festival of Tops in Miamisburg.  I found a source in China, but the minimum order is 10 tops.  Does anyone know somewhere else to find one?  Or, are there 9 other spinners out there that would also like a whipping top?  They are the led variety.
A 2kg top with 8 whip lines (no handle, to save on shipping) would be $53. 
A 4kg top with 8 whip lines would be $75. 
I could bring them to the Whirled Festival in Miamisburg, or the World Yoyo Contest in Cleveland to save shipping.
Or, if you can't wait until August, shipping would be extra.

Looks very therapeutic. Do you throw it to start it?

A 4kg top with 8 whip lines would be $75. 

My LED Chinese steel whip top is only 0.86 kg and it's not small (I think similar to the one on the Miamisburg video)
My largest Chinese steel whip top is 2.3 kg and it's pretty big.
A 4 kg top is really large (at least the size of the one Mauk spins on his video) and would be quite a workout to spin.

It is! I like to think of spammers and telemarketers and robocall programmers and identity thieves when I whip my tops. Whip 'em good!
