Spin Flax is a Lunar spell requiring level 76 Magic to cast. The spell spins flax into bow strings, spinning 5 flax and gaining 75 Magic experience, in addition to 15 Crafting experience per flax spun for a maximum of 75 Crafting experience per cast. The spell can be cast once every 5 game ticks.

Experience rates are approximately 80k Crafting experience and 80k Magic experience per hour. The maximum possible experience rate achievable with the spell is 90k Crafting and 90k Magic experience per hour, if every action is performed perfectly.

Compared to traditional methods of spinning flax, producing bowstrings with this spell will yield approximately 6,000 bowstrings per hour when every action is performed perfectly. For Ironman accounts, this is the fastest way to obtain bowstrings - slightly faster than Temple Trekking at 5,000 bowstrings per hour which does not require flax.

Assuming a player uses a staff that provides air runes and converts five flax into bow string per cast, casting Spin Flax will result in a profit of -200 coins.
