A beautifully crafted Gyroscope and spinning top. You can expect long spin times sitting still, or the device can be tilted slightly, which will set it off on a circular path across any desk or work surface.

There is no other gyroscope like the Advanced Gyro!

This advanced precision gyroscope uses no string or motor to start it spinning, simply allow the contact ball to contact a work surface while rolling it in either a straight line, or in a circular motion. Speeds of over 3500 RPM are easily achievable, and with practice the rotor can reach almost 10,000 RPM. The best part is that the gyro can be sped back up at anytime without any need to stop the rotor and attach a motor or string meaning that there neednít be any break in play!

Machined from Solid stainless steel this gyroscope is incredibly high quality, and very heavy. That mass provides a substantial rotor that is purposefully designed to maximize the performance of the gyroscope. The discus form of this instrument allows many effects to be observed by simply placing the gyroscope on its side that would usually require gimbals.

The elegant stand, also machined from solid stainless steel uses three ball bearings to minimise friction with the precessing gyroscope. This leads to fascinating and unique motions being observed, where the precessing gyroscope will actually elevate over time, until fully vertical where most other gyroscopes simply slowly descend. Once vertical, the gyro is free to spin on the unique bearing arrangement. It is a striking reaction.

This gyroscope is also a beautifully crafted spinning top. You can expect long spin times sitting still, or the device can be tilted slightly, which will set it off on a circular path across any desk or work surface.

That's the best gyro I know. It's better than any gyro thanks to the way you can launch it and because you can put it vertically on a surface, or use it like a spinning top or like a boomerang on the table. And it's a very beautifully crafted object !

A very nice gyro but it is very hard to find a good surface to initiate the rotational speed.

The gyroscope runs very smoothly, is quite heavy and well-made. It spins for quite some time and can be brought to higher speeds easily with little practice. Itís definitely nice to play with.

Very well made gyro. Runs well and long. Feels even heavier than I expected.
Glad I ordered one despite having had to pay extra taxes due to the Brexit.

Advanced gyro can work on different ways, very new and special made.
Quality of metal and conception are perfect that makes good effect.
Definitly a spinning top to buy !

Lovely gyro - although I was expecting it to spin more quietly.
