The new Duncan Ripcord is slightly larger than Duncan's Imperial top. It has many features useful for both beginning and advanced players. Includes a ripcord launcher mechanism that allows beginners to get their tops spinning immediately, a slot at the top that's good for intermediate users to wind the string easier, and a balanced design that will not easily separate...for the serious performer. This top is white with blue crown. Picture does not show actual colour. Please cheque listing title.
