Someone forgot to fully bake this drop before putting it in the window for sale.
Steel Top / Steel Bearing: Regular Drop Price Steel Top / Ceramic Bearing : +25.00 Brass Top / Steel Bearing: +90.00 Brass Top / Ceramic Bearing: +115.00
Apparently, while listed in the description, Tungsten Carbide Bearing is not an option as this time.

Hello TomaCzar, thank you for catching that little typo, originally I had planned to offer Tung. Carbide bearings... Unfortunately my supplier for them is out of stock until too close to the delivery date for comfort. I had to hold them back for this drop. Guess I used them all up haha.

Hello.
I'm going to be blunt. This version of your original top to this date is amazing. I remember it from a few years ago. Your tops price is very high but yet worth it. I'm saying that because of its design and function.
That being said. I've used ShapeWays. And I've used their coupons and or offers. Here's my point. I couldn't find this there. Are you going exclusive this one time? Otherwise I would prefer to wait for it on ShapeWays and save some money possibly.
I also was looking forward to the tungsten version bearing. Regardless of my opinion, great to see it here and hot damn it's a beautiful AF top.

Hello Bryan, Thank you for the complement. There is a little difference in getting one from shapeways and getting one right from me, the shapeways tops are shipped from the printer straight to you, no bearing, no testing and the polish depends on the material choices. I never personally get to handle the product if it is sold in their market place. That's why I like Massdrop better! This way you get to deal directly with me, I polish each top, and set the bearings myself. After that I give it one nice test spin, look it over for errors and send it off to you guys. It's a much higher quality spin with a bearing in it, certainly worth the extra work involved. So, that being said... the Zephyr won't work with out that big huge bearing in there and there is no material shapeways offers that can compare to the accuracy and hardness of the bearings. Sorry to disappoint.

Wasn't even thinking about that. lol I was clearly not right in the head, my apologies. Thank you for rectifying my complete ignorance. I mean it, I was like "I can wait and save money when Shapeways sends me an email." :D The level of stupid I exude.
