Found 24th Mar 2011
It's a Powerball which doesn't need a pull-string to start it!
"You just pull back along a hard surface, and power straight into your Powerball run."
Includes RPM counter and "Deluxe Case"!

These are £29.99 in Agros at the moment and are usually £25 on Amazon.

You just pull back along a hard surface



You could do that with the original anyways, just took a little practice.

where does 'Autostart' fit in when you have to 'pull it back'!!

Quite a few of the reviews at Amazon say it's easier to start than the string pull ones. That's more "auto" than the "manual" string but I guess that's not going to be a good enough description for the pedants.

A keep fit ball with an add-on for lazy people



Maybe, but I found the original quite fiddly and difficult to get started. If this is easier to start but still gives the same workout I'll be happy with that.

Hmmn, a lazy comment there me thinks and you obviously have never used one then, eh? (_;)

These are great for people who work out, people who are maybe chairbound and would like to keep up a relatively easy fitness program and especially good for those who have to use their hands everyday (so that's everyone, bar Abu Hamza then ). Especially good for preventing RSi and alleviating aching joints etc.

I was curious as to what this Poweball thingy actually was. I did a quick search for it and now wish I hadn't lmao

Meh I could start the old one's with just my thumb so auto start won't really make a difference also £21 for one of these is a RIP OFF they are usless safe yourself some money and do a couple of push ups you will get better results

I just received mine and it's dead easy to start. Haven't managed to get beyond 9000RPM yet though (max 8889 so far).
It's a weird technique but I'm sure I'll have it up to 12000RPM+ in a day or two!
I didn't think much of the so called "deluxe case"!
