Hopefully Neff's still got a couple Cuper Aluminum tops. You're gonna have to ask him. As for a Delrin top, you'll have to talk to MrYo. He makes them and he actually just finished packing the first shipment for the people that sent in their money since last week. I don't know if he'll be making a second set so you can just message him and ask. He's got an amazing variety of colors and from what I hear his tops are extremely well balanced. Can't wait til mine comes in in a couple weeks  ;D  You might wanna check the price. I believe one of those cuper ones can go about 40 bucks I think if I remember correctly. As for the delrin it was 70. Both those prices not including shipping.

Good job Topper777! I like players who are not afraid of posting videos of their progress.
The easiest way of getting out of the corkscrew is by lowering and moving to the inside the arm while giving string so the top lays into a trapeze hold.

All sold out of the Cupers.  But a Giulia (Strommol8, MrYo) will serve you well.  The Cuper is fixed tip only, but the Giulia can be either bearing or fixed.

Congratulations Topper777! 
I believe that the Cuper 360 Aluminum tops can still be purchased from Spain
Web site: http://www.saturnotruco.com/
Their Product page is: http://www.saturnotruco.com/tienda/
I have purchased several items from them and they are a pleasure to deal with.
Their site is multilingual, just click on the flag of the language you want.
Thanks for the video, I'll be looking for your next one.
Good Luck!

Can you give me the link to where their list of tops actually are? I don't speak Spanish and my google translator wont pick up the ''Special'' Font on the left hand side of the website.

It is the "Tienda" word on the right side of the home page.
Or http://www.saturnotruco.com/tienda/ should get you there.

By the way, I failed to mention that purchases from their Web Site can only be made within Spain, so contact
them by e-mail if you want to place an order.  "Contacto" on the Left side of the home page will get you to the e-mail or this link should http://www.saturnotruco.com/contacto.php
