Fidget Spinner Bearing Spin Time Comparison

May 31, 2017

Ben Flaum


 

In this video we take a look at how different bearings effect the performance of a fidget spinner. 

 

Our results concluded that although the full ceramic bearing spun only for a little while longer than the the hybrid ceramic bearing that the full ceramic bearing overall has a more enjoyable spin and feel.

 

Upon additional testing the following results were produced:

 

Full Ceramic - Test 1: 1 minute 52 seconds
Full Ceramic - Test 2: 1 minute 57 seconds
Full Ceramic - Test 3: 1 minute 57 seconds

 

Hybrid Ceramic - Test 1: 1 minute 42 seconds
Hybrid Ceramic - Test 2: 1 minute 43 seconds
Hybrid Ceramic - Test 3: 1 minute 41 seconds

 

Steel - Test 1: 49 seconds
Steel - Test 2: 48 seconds
Steel - Test 3: 49 seconds
