Designed to improve the wrist muscles, simply set the inner section spinning, rhythmic circular hand and wrist movements not only maintain the rotation, but also make it steadily faster. Increased in centrifugal forces make it harder to keep hold adding resistance to your wrist thus making you stronger.
Not only is this a great exercise for your wrist, it is also extremely addictive as it incorporates a high score system.

The perfect instrument to gently rehabilitate lower forearm and wrist joints affected by carpal tunnel syndrome, repetitive strain injury, arthritis & previous breakage.

I had one of these, they are a novelty, and do exercise the muscles.

As with all "fads", after a few uses, the pain in the arms persuades you not ot bother anymore.

Interesting use of centrifugal force/flywheels/gyroscopes, should be in every PHYSICS TEACHER'S set of experimental equipment.

these are actually a lot of fun. Cant say i used it much after the first few weeks as matey wrote - but it always comes out when i have people round. Its a lot harder than it looks.
I dont think this one comes with a counter - if you dont want to pay the £10 for one - just email their customer service, say you bought a ball but the counters faulty.. they send a replacement.
Cheeky i know, but £10 for a counter?.. no.

Its worth getting - the competition as to who can with hold the strongest centrifugal force is the best bit.

That explains your username then... :oops:

Really needs the counter to maintain interest. I have the heavy metal version as well as the Pro and I kind of prefer the faster spinning plastic one.
If you are really keen try the light metal, a snip at £97 from Amazon

I'm not convinced, these powerballs are built a hell of a lot better and its needed when it gets up to tens of thousands of RPMs.

They are a bit gimmicky, but to be able to use it for a fortnight or so and go up a climbing grade with no real effort, I certainly got a benefit from it. I seem to remember the website presents it as a whole upper body workout, and thats a little enthusiastic. Fingers and forearms, maybe a little upper arms and shoulders, but thats it.

And I paid £25 for mine only a few years back...

These can be addictive if theres a group of you competing for high scores, dunno if i'd have put any effort in on my own though

Good price though

this is so addictive, I remember buying a more powerful one when they first came out. i still got it in my home gym lying about. it definitely builds wrist and forearm strength without a doubt (if used regularly).
