The spinning characteristics of these Russian spindles are essentially the opposite of the Tibetan style spindle. They spin very fast and can produce a lot of twist in a short period of time, but the spin time is not nearly as long - generally between 5 and 20 seconds depending on the diameter and weight. These spindles are typically between 0.4 and 1.5 oz (10 to 40 grams) depending on the wood(s) used.
