Help make Spinpal Stout a reality today by backing one of the rewards on the right-hand side of this page. Thank you for your support!

The Idea

To design and create a high quality, ultra-performance, fidget spinner toy at an affordable price.

The Spinpal Stout is our third and simply our best all-around spinner to date. The Stout's small size allows it to be easily carried anywhere, while providing the long spin times and performance of larger spinners.  Stout maintains the overall dimensions of the Spinpal Mini but has 225% more outer weight. This additional weight enables the Stout to spin nearly twice as long as the Mini.

The Stout's circular design allows it to effortlessly enter and exit your pocket without hang ups and enables it to be spun at any orientation because the outer edge is always available for starting a spin.  The 12x weights are held and assembled in a matter that they cannot dislodge from the body. When dropped or spun at high speeds the weights are held firm. The only way to remove the larger weights is to first remove the smaller weights, which can only be done by inserting an object in-between the small weight and the body and pushing outward. This unique feature in conjunction with the one-piece body design makes the Stout extremely durable.

The Stout’s new custom center pads are ridged and are attached mechanically through the center so they can be removed if you would like to use the Stout on the end of a pencil. The center pads also have a low profile and larger surface area design which allows for easily performing tricks and a more comfortable spinning experience.

Funds are needed to scale manufacturing which will reduce cost and production time, while increasing part quality. Every Spinpaler (Spinpal-Backer) is important to us and the key to Spinpal’s success. Please don’t hesitate to contact us and share your questions or concerns.

 

 

The Design

Blade Body (Interchangeable)

3D Printed ABS Blade Body can be changed removing the center pads and pressing the center bearing out. This allows for changing the look of your Spinpal Stout on the fly. Additional Blades will be available as an add-on item on BackerKit.

Center Pads (Interchangeable)

Center Pads enable you to hold Spinpal Stout when using it as a hand spinner or allows the user to set it on a flat surface to spin like a top.  Pads are held together with a small stainless steel countersunk screw and nut.

Bearing

Extreme performance and high quality ceramic hybrid bearing with stainless steel races and ceramic balls.

Weights

Twelve steel balls (6 large, 6 small) maximize spin performance and can not be easily removed without first pressing the smaller balls out from the inside.

Pencil O-Rings

O-rings which allow Spinpal Stout to be placed anywhere along the length of a pencil so you can find your perfect balance. Spinpal Stout will work on any writing utensil with similar diameters.

Size

  • 2.00” Diameter (1.00” Radius)
  • 0.50" Thickness ( 0.63" w/Pads)

 

 

Total Weight

2.5 oz. (70.8 grams)

Functions

Hand Spin

Grasp Spinpal Stout's center pads in between your pointer finger and thumb (top and bottom orientation does not matter). Then use your other hand to let it rip. Don’t worry; Stout has been tested to spin even in the smallest of hands, including children as young as 2 years-old.

Flat Spin

Place Spinal Stout's center stud flat side down on a level surface. Then push down on the top of the center stud and spin.

Pencil Topper Spin

Slide one pencil o-ring onto the pencil, then slide Spinpal Mini onto the pencil. Next, slide another pencil o-ring onto the pencil and smash the Spinpal Stout in between the two o-rings. Position Spinpal Stout wherever you would like along the length of the pencil.

Center Spin

Hold Spinpal Stout in one hand and use thumb to spin the center pads only.

Tricks

Spin the Spinpal Stout in between any two fingers.  Then toss the air and try to catch the Stout back between fingers without interrupting the spin.
