- Quite disappointing
- I thought I would learn something new, but the teacher tries to sell things as "special tricks" that I consider absolutely basic - like breaking off the single with the surplus colour when plying and reattaching it with the proper colour. Or, shock, eyeballing other tops to see if there are matching colours to spin tops together. Yes, there are 12 ways shown to spin a specific dyed top. But only very new or very insecure spinners will really learn anything from this class. The teacher also tends to tell what she just did - she literally recaps what she showed on camera two minutes ago. It's a way to extend the length of the video without offering more content.

- Great Information, poor sound quality
- I really liked the information on this video but found that there was a lot of irritating background noise. At a few points in the video there was a background noise that sounded like very loud traffic. It nearly covered up the speaking in the video. (Posted on 9/23/2015)
