The Metal Spin (メタルスピン) was an obstacle in the Second Stage that replaced the Gyakusō Conveyor in SASUKE 14. An array of chains dangle from a horizontal wheel that freely spins, resembling a chandelier, over a water hazard. The competitor must jump to grasp one of the chains, spinning the wheel to the other side. Starting in SASUKE 15, the chains were given bungee cords, causing the chains to stretch and requiring competitors to have a strong grip to prevent the chain from slipping out of their hands. It was the only Second Stage obstacle to be retained after Nagano Makoto's kanzenseiha. However, it was changed - the Shin-SASUKE version had a longer run-up but the actual obstacle was also further from the platform than the previous versions. This obstacle proved to be one of the tougher obstacles in the Second Stage. In SASUKE 16 alone it took out almost half of the people. From SASUKE 28 onwards, this obstacle was taken out in favor of the Backstream.
