The Super SpinFaktor was a big innovation for YoYoJam. The first model to show off their improved composite body design, which was used in most of their releases after this one. The weight ring moved 80% of the body weight to the rim, for LONG spins. The next step in the evolution from the SpinFaktor, which did have weight rings, but in a simpler configuration. Bearing axle, take apart design, adjustable gap. While this design technically has no response system, recessed molding holes around the axle do act as a very weak starburst.

This Clear SSF was an early release, from back in the late 90s. Notice the fine cracks where the metal weight ring meets the plastic. This will be a common problem with older YoYoJam models with composite body construction. The plastic and metal expand and contract at different rates, and even small changes in temperature will lead to cracking. The problem was improved upon with later models, but still does occur.
