    Hey rgray. Where do you find these tops????

    I already have all the Billetspin tops in your photos, but there are 1-2 that I just can't find.

    I look around most of the usual places but can't find them

    For those looking for a non-poke-in-the-leg option:

    Butterfield Flattop. Relatively low entry price point, and then for more spendy options you can choose from bi-metal variants. For fans of vintage type stuff, there are versions with Buffalo head nickels or Indian head pennies. There are also versions honoring LEOs, the military and Firefighters/Emergency Services.

    No affiliation, just thought it was cool. Note: the first video is just because it gives a decent overview. The giveaway mentioned in the video ended months ago.



    Apparently 12:00 minute spin times with the brass version are possible even with a less than perfect initial spin.



    ATB,
    Sam

    Ohhhhhh- come on!!!

    You're killing me now as it is RGRAY LOL

    Because of the Timezone difference when they go on sale- when we wake up here in Oz- they're all gone

    Well- if you ever come across a plain Billetspin Nexus top- please get in contact with me- I would definitely be interested in it

    How do you like it? Mine has a bit of a wobble to it, but not enough to make me not like it.

    The photo is while spinning, no significant wobble. Strangely spins better on the pad of paper than on the hard desk top.

    I liked the Rotablade Stubby ss with trits so much, I bought the Rotablade titanium, trits with Mokuti button.
