Made with Aloha Round 2 • 808 Gen2 by Steampunk

The idea for an 808 spinner was not some epic brainchild, just simply that I live in Hawaii and thought “ We should totally start making some 808 shaped spinners.” There was no rocket science involved, not really too much design either. I left that to the makers to “play” around with. Based on the Gen1 bing made to be an entry level spinner since I knew we could only have the Gen1 made in Aluminum I really wanted the Gen2 to be made of a higher end metal, so we went with copper and titanium. Opposite sides of the spectrum of weight amongst other attributes.

My favorite part about how this design came out was that the Steampunk crew felt the holes in the “8”’s needed to go all the way through and I totally agree 100%. Yes it increased the cost a ton but the final result is totally worth it. The piece is stunning, it really made the “808” pop.

For a bar spinner the 808 Gen2 is very very stable…it is ½” thick, built of the same specs as the Steampunk Phat Boy so it can use any buttons or core adaptors that are made for them too.  The bottom line is not only did the spinner turn out stunning to look at, it spins like a dream too. In fact the Steampunk crew asked if they could keep one of the run and trade for some other spinners of theirs cause they liked it so much….I was down….so there were really only 9 sent to and 7 that were made available for purchase. At the time of this article there is one Ti model left and a few Cu and odds are these will not be offered again. If you are a collector of fidget spinners and have any connection to Hawaii I would suggest taking a look at these. Very very well made and stunning to look at, you can’t go wrong.

I love the Ti as much as the Cu version. The Titanium model is obviously an easier ‘carry’ weighing in at 81 grams while the Copper model weighs 138 grams….BEASTMODE.

Did you see that beautiful OG full ceramic 608 bearing in there too??? She is a rumbler!!

Thanks for taking the time to read this and please as always spin well and spin on….today will be a memory tomorrow. One love.


One of a kind SPOOKY SPINNER – Gaika Ring Spinner

Let’s start off by saying DAMN! This is one amazing spinner. Now I am not just saying that because there is only ONE of these in existence, well let me rephrase that…there is only one in existence with the custom Halloween inspired art that has then been back filled with glow resin. I am this thing is a grail amongst grails…even IF it was not a cool spinner, but it is more than that.

It is not only a great compact tri spinner it is also a great ring spinner. According to the maker, CompoForm, the weight of the spinner is 103 grams. It is 58 mm in diameter. The thickness is 17mm. Spin time is over 4 minutes. This is the information given on the pre-order form that they have online if you decide you want to order one. I have ordered from CompoFrom in the past and they are very trustworthy and have great communication. This spinner I was lucky enough to win in a waffle that was posted on the Fidget Spot Facebook page. This is the only waffle I have ever won and might be the coolest waffle that I could have ever won so I have to say I was very very very pleased.

I like this spinner both as a ring spinner and with the caps on as a regular spinner. It functions as both very well. As I mentioned before I also enjoy the size, it spins with the fell of a slightly larger spinner then it actually is. I also LOVE the wooden holders that CompoForm is known for.

The spinner came with a custom pouch made by Sentinel Hanks and Pouches and fits this puppy like a glove with the wooden case and really well without the case as well. They do great custom work so if you are looking for any custom hanks or pouches hit them on the link above at their FB page and they will be sure to take care of you.

I do not plan to sell this at the moment BUT if I change my mind the vault page on would be the place you might find this badboy for sale.  Gonna try to keep this one in the permanent collection  if I can afford to 😛

As always thanks for stopping by. Till next time….spin on you crazy diamond!
