Cometa

ORION

This is the standard model from Cometa. It targets the same market as the Campeón and Profesional from 5 Estrellas.

It uses the same mold as the Tornado as the spiral on the inside gives away, but because of the opaque plastic it cannot be seen from the outside.

   

COBRA

One of the most beautiful tops around, it has molding of the inside walls that matches the skin of a cobra on the crown.

Comes in several colors and two sizes: regular and small (the silver one on the photo).

   

AZTECA

A clear copy of the Azteca design from 5 Estrellas but not as good. On the other hand, 5 Estrellas copied the Diamante idea from Cometa.

   

DIAMANTE

A beautiful top with the facets of a diamond molded inside. This top was the one used in the 2008 movie "Under the same moon" ("La misma luna".)

   

TORNADO

One of Salvador Martinez's favorite tops because of the way it plays, the tip and the looks. It has a helix molding simulating a tornado. But the plastic is not very tough.

Salvador's ideal top: a Jumbo-size Tornado with the plastic of an Alien top.

 

   

SUPER CAR

A solid top with a nice cap with car themes but not so attractive body.

   

COLECCIÓN

Internal molding on the crown make different different "collector's" designs.

This design in particular is known as the "Mike Hout special."

SPIDER

It is unusal for Mexican tops to have a relief on the outside of the body but these tops have a strong one. More collector tops than players.

Mini

The Mini Linea Cometa is a very nice small size top. It has a body with internal ribs (like a Holotrompo Ultra) and moldings on the crown.
