With tons of spinners available at every conceivable price point, it’s tough to stand out. The AIRWALKS Hand Spinner EDC Fidget Toy tries to stand out with style. In that regard, the AIRWALKS spinner succeeds, but the proof is in the performance. In that area, it’s a let-down.
Available in metallic Black, Blue, and Rose Gold colors, the latter of which I’m reviewing, the AIRWALKS spinner complements its bold color choices with a unique design. While most spinners have a central pivot point and then three counter balances, the AIRWALKS leaves its three “wings” solid. This allows the AIRWALKS to be much smaller than other spinners at only 2.48 inches long at each extremity, and a weight of about 30 grams.
Unfortunately, while AIRWALKS claims a spin time of over 3 minutes, in my testing, we barely got a minute. The spin action didn’t feel particularly balanced or smooth, nor was it silent. In fact, it was quite noisy. While it’s easy to remove the concave finger grips, I could see no obvious signs of obstruction to account for the poor performance. Given the price point and the variety of other options available, the unique design and complementary storage case don’t make up for its shortcomings.
– Unique design
– Not as smooth as other spinners
– Relatively high price
Although offering a unique look, the AIRWALKS spinner’s performance is a let-down.
Thanks to AIRWALKS for the review unit.
