ForeverSpin is a company that specializes in making high quality spinning tops which they state are perfect for both collecting and for playing with.
How Does ForeverSpin Work?
According to their website, ForeverSpin spinning tops are made out of the purest and highest quality materials. The metal is formed into solid billets and moved to a state of the art facility where each top is then CNC-machines on a lath in one operation to achieve “an incredible degree of precision”.
ForeverSpin says that spinning tops are known for having a certain kind of beauty. They also are known to be able to provide a boost in creativity and focus and has been shown in studies to even improve productivity at work.
ForeverSpin tops are also available in a variety of colors, weights, and attributes, making them an ideal item for collecting, as tops have been recognized for hundreds of years as both a beloved toy and elegant pieces of art.
If you are new to spinning tops, the website recommends starting with lighter weight tops as these will be the easiest to spin. For this reason, they recommend their aluminum top and titanium top for people who are new to tops or who are buying a top for a child.
Individual tops sold through this website are priced as low as $34 and as high as $195. Customers can also choose to buy a pre-selected "MetalMuseum" which comes with a variety of different tops and a dock to keep them in. Depending on the number of tops you choose, these packages are priced between $225 and $885.
Their website clearly states that they have no Refund Policy and that all sales made through their website are final.
Unfortunately, due to their standards of providing their customers with the highest quality items at all times, they are not able to re-sell items that are returned to them as their quality could be impacted. For this reason, they cannot accept returns.

These products appear to have mixed reviews, and it seems that many of their unhappy customers are frustrated because these tops can be more difficult to spin for longer periods of time when compared to others. That is likely because these tops are made from different density metals and may take slightly more practice to keep up for longer.
However, because this company does not offer refunds, customers will want to carefully consider whether they would like to make an investment in this product.
Competitors and Alternatives?
Though ForeverSpin and their products are intended to be collectible quality and not the same as the everyday tops you will find in many stores, there are other brands of tops that consider themselves just as high quality, including Lambda, so customers will have alternatives to this company if they wish to comparison shop.

PERFECT gift for brother's wedding and fast order updates
Absolutely fantastic product which made the perfect gift for my brother's wedding party. I bought a different kind for all of the groomsmen and with different densities of all tops, different weights, textures, and finishes, it was fun to see and compare them all. There was a bit of arguing after about why whichever person got which, with tungsten costing FAR FAR more than other tops, but it was nice to see everyone playing together and having a good time.
The shipping was super fast and the order was processed overnight with tracking sent the very next day. A little bit on the smaller side, but that's what gives it its unique elegance.
10/10 and already ordered another set for myself.
No complaints, nice for play and collection
I'd agree Foreverspin tops are a bit pricey, but I found no obvious cheaper alternative that wasn't made in the Far East. I ordered from them on three different occasions, every time with no complaints as to the delivery.
One was for Christmas (for me, ordered by my spouse) and was delivered promptly (their site promised as much pre-Christmas). Of the other two, one was maybe a bit slower than I'd thought, by a couple of weeks.
Now, they are located in Canada and so am I. I didn't check myself, but do they have premium delivery options that would work better for other countries? In any event, I do enjoy my tops, even the fact that spinning them all takes a bit of practice, especially when spinning several with different weights, one after the other.
They also make a nice decoration with their docks. I know a CNC technician and he thought these were very nice pieces of work.
You will receive what you order or not....
The product is nice but overpriced
After several order received this happened last time
International shipping and customer service is a joke.
I received my order after 2,5 month. After a 100$ order they want me to pay additional 80$ as clearance fee. After rejecting the product there is no any refund. B aware, don't order from Europe unless you want to waste of money !!
This is the answer I received:
We will not receive your shipment back in Canada - what do you not understand about this fact? This shipping service does not have returns available. Instead, the package will be destroyed or discarded by customs when "travelling" in the reverse direction.

Why would you reject a shipment you're expecting? Customs fees are customs fees - the business has nothing to do with it
There may be problems with shipment
On November 30, I received a notification that the package was sent. Today is February 8th, I still haven't received anything. They say that the postal service has a tracking problem, refer to the high load on the USPS due to the high season. Gave them $ 400 UA444940776US.
Upd: in the end the company sent me a new shipment with two tops from a special series.
SCAM, NOT to recommend
Ordered, paid and was told the product was on its way. Delivery was at a company address and the parcel never arrived, in spite various confusing mails from what was presumably a DHL tracker. Calling DHL it turned out they had no recognition of having received anything. Confronting the company with this I was told that DHL couldn't deliver the package (which was not true...) which was supposedly my fault and the now returned package could not be found.
As compensation I was then offered to buy the product again with a discount.......Amazing and I really don't get how the company can still be allowed to operate
What you see is what you get
Excellent Qualtiy, a bit pricey.
Let me start by saying that I've seen many mixed reviews on the Foreverspin Tops.
In terms of payment and service, they are exactly what I expect from a small online retailer. They quickly accept payment and promptly ship your order. It took about 4 days for me to receive my order from payment to my door. I did not pay for rush processing or shipping.
First - A quick review.
These tops are simple and elegant. I purchased the Magnesium (Super light - easy to spin, but very difficult to get it perfectly centered due to the low spin times) and the Titanium (also easy to spin and as I can consistently get a nice perfectly centered spin as it is weightier than the magnesium). Both are beautifully machined and look virtually flawless.
Additionally, I purchased the large spinning base - which gives you a bit more area for learning to spin your tops. I think I would have been happy with the smaller base that doubles as a display for your desk, but occasionally I slip a spin and am happy for the added surface of the larger base.
The base is a very nice black silica glass, but I did notice that just spinning the top on the surface mars it up. This isn't from dropping the top onto the glass, but simply from slightly off-centered spins. It's not a big deal since it doesn't affect the smoothness of the glass - just something to be aware of when you purchase it. Additionally there is no lip on the base to keep your top on the glass, so do be careful about over-spinning your top and shooting it off the base
When you get a perfect spin, the tops are mesmerizing and look like they are just sitting there, perfectly still, on the spinning base. They really don't even look like they are spinning - it's a bit surreal the first time you witness it.
If your spin is a bit off, you are treated to a sort of humming from the vibration of the metal - each metal has a different tone and it's somewhat hypnotic to watch the spin and hear the vibrations.
Now - the criticism
If you're used to some of the larger, fancier, (and sometimes much pricier), tops out there that easily give you 10 minute spin times, you're not going to be happy with the Foreverspin. Contrary to the name, Foreverspin tops just aren't built for super high spin times.
If you don't have the patience to learn how to spin a Foreverspin - and each metal is slightly different - you're not going to be happy with the Foreverspin.
If you really think that these are going to be super collectible (they're not) - you're not going to be happy with the Foreverspin.
If you want easy to spin tops that will give you super high spin times (and some variants will be highly collectible) get a Lambda or Vorso with a ruby contact point - you won't be disappointed.
However - if you like the simple elegance of the Foreverspin shape and have the patience to learn to spin a Foreverspin properly, you will be as happy with these tops as I am.
I bought the miniMuseum collection as a present for my friend and I played around with it at first. Both I and my friend liked them. We are not professional spinners and these tops were the first after the childhood ones. In my opinion, a bit expensive for a top, but the feel of the metal, packaging and performance are excellent.
The website itself is very convenient, pictures are clear and descriptions are good. Recommend!
scam/no product delivered
My very first "investment" on Indiegogo was Forever Spin -- just some fancy metal spinning tops. But they convinced me that I wanted one. So I made my pledge and gave indiegogo my money. This happened back in February 2016. Now it's October 2016 and the indiegogo campaign shows Foreverspin's last update was THREE months ago. I have received NOTHING. I have emailed Forever Spin many times with NO RESPONSE. Now I see they are selling on Amazon and other places (and not getting the best reviews there either)
So I guess some people actually got the product, but I received NOTHING. Even complaining to Indiegogo got NO RESPONSE AT ALL.
I have purchased from foreverspin a couple of times with no issues. In fact I was sent a gift card (scratch off) which discounted nicely the product. While i agree the tops may seem a bit pricey, the quality is fantastic. They are machine lathed tops that are ground to perfection. There are a few starter tops that are not too pricey; however, the exotic metals can get pricey, i.e. Damascus Steel, Black Zirconium, Tungsten. I enjoy them very much.
Didn’t even receive the product got lost somewhere in customs. They don’t have any proper shipping policies and the customer care executive was sooo rude, telling me we haven’t had customers like you. Please don’t buy their products.
