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.
