The Chico YoYo Company has released a new spin top, with a new tip design that hearkens back to an old Duncan top tip design from the 70s/80s.
It seems to be called just “New Spintop”, simply enough, and is made of machined delrin. The body shape is a sleek teardrop, very different from CYYC’s first spin top release.
The tip has a flat, wide base and a narrow shaft, very reminiscent of a vintage Duncan spin top tip that was geared towards helping beginners to learn more advanced tricks…while a flared tip design like this helps you catch the top back on the string, it does also make it a bit harder to release, which means more advanced top players might find this tip to be fantastic for inverted tricks while required some compensation for more typical tricks.
The new Chico YoYo Company spin top is available now at ChicoYoYoCompany.com for $95 each.
