Great-spinning and unique top, colour not quite expected
Spins beautifully, and is especially stunning when it manages to stay in the "floating" position where it looks like the top is in suspended animation. I find the Stage 2 spin much more satisfying than I expected it to be. The one thing I wish was that the stainless flamed version that I have were bluer, like in the photographs. Mine definitely has some colouration, but it's more of a bronzy sheen than blue. Given the raindrop theme of this top, that's a small disappointment.

Would recommend to a friend.

Like most NW tops, the Raindrop is easy to spin because of the taper that extends upward from the bearing. The rounded surface is very smooth, which I love. The twisted part of the grip looks especially nice when it spins in circles as the top starts to wobble. This occurs just before it tips over onto its side and begins its stage 2 spin. For the most part, I don't like the look of most flamed products. I made an exception and purchased the flamed stainless steel version of the Raindrop top because I liked the way the blue color would fit in with the water theme. Be aware that if you buy this version, the grip may look more like unflamed stainless steel (silver color), rather than the gold color shown in the photos on the Overview page here. I'm fine with that and like the way it reveals the true material, but you may want to know that before buying. It looks like the twisted grip was finished after the unit was flamed. The blue color of the flamed part is also much less saturated than in the product photos. As you can see in my photo here, the colors are much more subtle. In person, the colors come out only a small amount more than in this photo. That's my greatest disappointment with this top.

The spin times of this top are comparable to those of the NW Tops Yakima top. I typically get 2.5–3.5 minutes. These times do not include the stage 2 spin, which lasts about 20 seconds.

I got the flamed version and it looks great. It spins longer than I would have expected and I like the flat spin it does at the end, although I like the spin of the Yakima Hop top better.
