Spin Dynamics wanted to create a Yoyo different than what they have released in the past. Something full sized, geared towards competition, and still as high-quality as their past releases, the Smooth Move and and Monkey Fist. They were successful, creating a wonderful Yoyo, the Flow.

Response: CBC “Slim Pad” Size 19mm OD
This Yoyo has a nice Stepped V shape. The inner cup is very appealing and looks classy. This yoyo also has a generous IRG, making it very easy to land thumb grinds. The finish on this yoyo is AMAZING! It is very soft, and grinds for ages. This Yoyo sports the Spin Dynamics Helicoil axle system, which provides you with not having to worry about the Yoyo stripping. As I said earlier, this yoyo looks very classy- from the deep royal purple and clean clear coat, to the simple design, it looks great!
The weight distribution gives you a lot of stability without playing like a rock. It can be pushed to play fast, but plays at a nice moderate speed easily.
Response and Bearing
The response is CBC slim pads, which provide nice tight binds and last long. The bearing is a standard YYE 8 ball bearing. No complaints here, but I found that the Flow plays much better with a Konkave Bearing.
What words can describe the play of the Flow? Amazing, Spectacular, How about Mind Blowing? The Flow’s capabilities are endless. This Nice Yoyo can handle anything you throw at it. The Flow can mend itself to your preferences, Fast, Slow, Horizontal, Diagonal, it takes it all! This yoyo is amazing for 1A, but I imagine it would be great at 3A and 5A. This Yoyo is a great grinder. When you hop it up for a fingergrind, you feel no friction at all! The Flow is very good at horizontal play, due to its great stability. This Yoyo is easily one of my best players!!!
At 120 dollars, this Yoyo isn’t exactly cheap. But, I feel like this Yoyo is worth all the money. Spin Dynamics is a growing company, but I can imagine them being a very successful company if they continue to produce quality products like the Flow!
