Height approx. 50/68 mm - made of hardwood (such as birch, beech, black walnut,... ), natural matt, hand-turned.
Scope of supply: 1 whip, 1 gyroscope
The recess for the thumb makes it easier to pull the whip up. For the inexperienced in this traditional game, this recess in the upper surface is particularly important. The whip thread is placed in the turned grooves around the top to wind it up. If this is successful, the spinning top must be kept rotating with targeted whip strokes. It seems to be a very simple game, but you need some practice and skill. A steel nail is firmly embedded in the tip of the gyro.
