Behold!  A list of "recent history to present" spin tops grouped by manufacturer:

Spintastics
Sidewinder (plastic tip fixed) / Gladiator (metal tip fixed) / Blizzard (metal tip bearing)
Hollow Point (hollow aluminum (the first?) with no cap.  Sidewinder fits inside for double-top play)

Excellent, Chris! I'm mentally going through my top drawer, and I can only think of one that's not on your list. IMHO it's common enough to be listed. I've seen it with lots of different names/packaging (Bass Pro Shop, etc.) but I think of it as the Channel Craft top. Maple, plastic tip, about the size of a Sidewinder, with 3 grooves around it?

Have Fun,
Java

I forgot BC tops too.
I think the Channel Crafter wood top is the same as the original Toy Crafter wood top, so I just added it there.

The Bearing King is excellent at its price. 
Don't forget to check the seating of the Bearing and to tape it.
