Anticlockwise spinners are weird and you should switch to clockwise spinning.

Also, spinning is almost as worthless a skill at streaming in osu, and as long as you can get a 300 on it, it doesn't matter unless you want top ranks on 4 mod easies.

Edit:
Keep spinning, repetition makes it tense up less

First thing I said causes injury, don't do it .-.

Spinning counter-clockwise is fine. I used to spin pretty fast (~400-450) before I stopped using my Huion 420. Practice making small circles and try tensing the muscle in your arm instead of your hand.

If you can't work out how to spin, you won't get very far in this game.

Anticlockwise spinning isn't weird, it's just something in your brain which decide the way you spin (and also draw circles and stuff in general). Cookiezi also used to spin anticlockwise. I've also heard something about that with a left handed player who is playing with the right hand and he had this problem too

Thread creator says spinning clockwise is slower for him/her. Also, spinning direction comes down to personal preference. There isn't a "generally" better direction.

Increasing your spinning speed and consistency: If you are right-handed, learn how to spin counter clockwise. If you are left-handed, learn how to spin clockwise. It should feel more natural for most people. If not, train your brain to go to that direction until it develops muscle memory. Now, if you are one of the few people who can spin fast going the opposite unnatural direction (by fast I mean around 440-450 SPM or higher), there is no point for you to learn this.

Please note that this will take some people more time then others to get used to however, in the long run, it will be totally worth it! Give it 6 months max and I promise that your spin speed will be faster then at least 80% of people in the game (assuming that you stay consistent and stick with good habits). You should never use your wrists to spin! You need to learn how to rotate your whole arm in a circular motion while it is resting on the table. Make sure that you are using the muscles within your whole upper arm as a main source. Do not spin too close to the spinner because you will lose momentum too quickly; spin wider instead. Also, keeping your feet flat and sitting up straight helps with staying consistent with your spins.

tl;dr: Practice, practice, practice.

I don't think this is a great way to spin. Imo ppl should always spin the way it feels best for them

Yeah, taking six months to develop a skill that is not useful in real life ever and not even required in a game seems pretty worth it.

What.
I don't know if that guy's hand is connected to his hand by a ball-and-socket joint but unless it is you'll always have to perform mechanical work to redirect your pen/mouse. Also, assuming you spin proportionally faster at lower radii your momentum is the same as with larger radii.

TL;DR do what you want and take care of your hands in the process.

why are you even here if you're going to ridicule people for gaining skill in a game that isn't useful in real life?

you're like a fattie that shames anybody that talks about dieting and exercising, lol




as for the topic, i won't give any specific technique but start slowly until you find a comfortable spinning motion, and keep trying to increase this speed (don't force yourself to go too fast or you will just end up swinging your cursor everywhere

I find is usefull in manual works. Since i live in small village, i have garden, so there every manual skills are usefull. How about that bruh? Get some real life first.

As for topic, here is map to train spining: https://osu.ppy.sh/b/172822
Enjoy

The only thing thing I can imagine spinning being useful for is stirring your coffee or something similar and I'm satisfied with only stirring that at 200SPM instead of 500. Although I guess if I could do that I wouldn't need a coffee any more which is sorta nice.

Maybe if you enjoy scalding yourself.

Fapping and Spinning on the same day is like asking for RSI. Don't do it OP.
U mean this RSI?

Or....

RSI-chan?

We have both in forum right now 8-)

If you live in big city, that explain everything.
Small village away of any civilization ftw! Here only true (air)man can survive :D

Zenny, how do you even get your fake rsi when you barely played Osu

My actual play count is probably 20-25k (counting online, offline, unranked, edits) with a good 7-8k grinding long stream maps. If you count playing relax then my play count is probably 30k+ (Yes I love relax mod THAT much)
