Spinworthy Appreciation Thread

I’ve been planning to start this thread for a while but with Fixed-Feb approaching, I figured it was a good time to get it done.

TMBR yo-yos get a lot of deserved recognition, but for some reason SWs don’t get the same attention. @Glenacius_K is currently taking a break from making yo-yos but he has been very busy over the last few years developing several great models and producing a ton of fixed-axles in multiple materials.
Please share your love of Spinworthy and pics of your collection! :heart::yo-yo:


Over this past year, I have acquired all of these SWs.

Row 1:

  • Walnut Harbinger w/take-apart axle and end-grain response (pictured)
  • White Oak Harbinger w/take-apart axle and end-grain response
  • Unknown edition MK1/SW RBC (standard setup)
  • Navy RBC (custom fixie setup - one of my favs)

Row 2:

  • Walnut Urchin (no response - tight gap instead)
  • Wenge Boon (4-hole response)
  • Red Oak Bloodcell (newest 6-hole response)
  • Red Oak KNack (newest 6-hole response)

Row 3 (All made of recycled HDPE)

  • Survivalist (Newest version: 6-hole response, rounded edges - my favourite version)
  • Survivalist (experimental collar response)
  • Survivalist (Original YYE run: 4-hole response)
  • KNack prototype (smaller brass axle, 4-hole response - fairly center-weighted)

My favorite yoyo. Purple heart unresponsive which shall remain nameless


My favorite fixie. Deodar cedar bloodcell with a yellow birch replacement axle and 4 hole response. The SW logo is lasered in the gap so both faces look super clean.


Seen you flash this a few times … by far my favorite of the wooden yo-yos I have see posted.l in these forums. Are there spacers to protect the wood at the bearing seat, kind of like what we see with some POM yo-yos?

Ya, @Glenacius_K used the OneDrop Cabal spacers on this.


Yeah, I love this thing.

Onedrop Cabal guts


The one and only Skinny Survivalist through hole version made out of HDPE.

My RBC collection and probably my favorite throws.

I need to get a group photo.


4 of my favorite fixies.


Best response and most consistent player out of all my throws


Here’s my Spinworthy collection. My favorites are the oak KNack, beech Bloodcell, darker Button (can’t remember the wood), and the RBCs.
