A list of the ones in my collection: 2sick knight, turntable, iyoyo steel, space cadet, horizon, d10, Rec rev octave. I personally like all of these for fingerspins

MYY Skyva is probably the best for learning them. For learning more tricks than the standard fingerspin like hops, the Eternal Throw Elysian is probably the best.

YYO Orbis, Iyoyo Steel, and ET Curvy Donut Man are great for them as well.

I would avoid stuff like the Horizon and Space Cadet because they aren't as forgiving and are more difficult to learn on.

The Skyva is a crutch more than anything. You pop it on your finger and it's just automatic.

I think learning is best done when you first struggle and then progress. You can do that (in regards to fingerspins) with anything that has a flat cup. It'll be hard at first, but as your mechanics improve, so will your results.

My two best finger spin throws are the Compass and the Banshee. It took some work learning. But I learned on the Compass.

I would agree with this! For leaning not the greatest, but purely for spins they are great. If you are still in a learning phase, I would highly recommend things with small hubs (I can't come up with the word) in it, that way you aren't trying to dead center fingerspin. Off axis fingerspins are great to learn first, then move into centered fingerspins.

Skyva!

It's easy mode, but that's what you want when starting IMO.
You'll have a hard enough time throwing it sideways and getting your finger under it in the right place.

Then learning the bind.

After that you can get a Horizon or something and work on getting the actual spin down.

I have a variety of yoyos that were designed for finger spins. Ironicly, the ones that have the inverse nipple (Space Cadet, C3 MOVE), along with ones with a bowl (Horizon) give me the most trouble spinning.

The Elysian is amazing and it's pretty much "auto correct" for finger spins. The extreme H-shape and the tiny cup make it perfect.

I've also had excellent luck with my 2sick Knight as much as you'd think the nub in the center would get in the way. Also been able to spin my Igloo, Oracle, and other yoyos with fairly flat centers.

Add the Petrichor to the flat-cup list of contenders.

C3 move is the best I have ever used! For me it's almost completely automatic. Then again, for leaning it may not be the best.
I still have to get a skyva and Elysian (trades for them on my bst Wink )to compare though.
