And here's a review of the Hilltopper.

"This wheel is smoother than my Lendrum." RL from Buffalo

Spinning wheel flyers

Your choice of flyer - Standard flyer on left uses an orifice hook and is fine for all kinds of spinning.   Flyer on right has a very large orifice, needs no hook and works best for those who spin straight on in front of them.
