How To Choose Spin Top ?

Choosing spin top is quite simple. It does not really matter if you are beginner or advanced player. Spin Tops are usually not categorized by skill level. Spin Tops can be divided into two groups according to the type of tip. There are ball bearing tip spintops and fixed tip spintops.

  1. Fixed Spinning Tops have fix tip without ball bearing. It means that the tip is spinning together with the spinning top. This Spinning Top is recommended for fixed spinning top tricks.
  2. Ball Bearing Spinning Tops have tip with ball bearing inside. It means that the tip is not spinning while the top is spinning. This Spinning Top is recommended for ball bearing spinning top tricks.

For beginners to learn basic tricks both kinds of spin tops are fine. Only later more advanced tricks require specific type of spinning top.

However we recommend starting with ball bearing spin top. These spintops spin bit longer and are easier to balance. But there is nothing wrong about learning basics of spin top tricks with fixed spin top.
