Pros i've got nothing to say..its perfect!!especially with my sore wrist.
Summary actually this is my first time writing a review.i bought a lot of items through online.i was just so amazed by this product.all in all great buy and for 19 bucks this is a steal..ill recommend it to my friends :)
Pros Great for rehab of golf ennis elbow tendonitis
Cons hard to setuplearn
Summary There is a learning curve to this but it's a great piece of machinery.
I've had tendonitis both golf(bottom of elbow) and tennis elbow(top) and the powerball is extremely therapeutic when used slowly(just to maintain it spinning) for a short length of time(5-10 minute durations 2x a day)
Summary Great product! If your looking to strengthen any muscle in your arm then you need this. It's a work out and it's fun! I still use it to this day and I'm always trying to beat my high score. The grip is good but if your hands get sweaty and it gets wet it tends to come loose a bit. This has only happened to me a couples times and that was after an extended period of usage.
Cons Hard to get going, painful if you touch the mech while running.
Summary A great remedy for that nagging carpo pain from mousing all day long. A few minutes with this baby and you'll either be hooked on getting it to go faster or completely frustrated trying to get it to go. Read the instructions for some great hints on how it works and soon you'll have the hang of it. Whatever you do don't hand it to your kid while it's running without explaining it's moving parts. The spinning mech can catch a finger quickly and be painful.
Pros Fun, effective, high quality, good value when on sale.
Cons Becomes loud and rough too easily, grip design could be more comfortable on the hand.
Summary These powerballs are on sale regularly and at those prices it's definitely worth owning one. They take a while to really get a good feel for how to use it properly but it becomes easy once you understand how it's supposed to feel. I've been able to break 11k RPM with each hands but above 8k RPM it only takes seconds to feel the strain on your forearm muscles and it doesn't take long to tire out your arm when used at high speeds.
On the first day I used it I wore through a layer or two of skin in two places on my fingers and I also developed an injury in one arm just below the wrist that took almost two weeks to recover from and it made every minor daily task much more difficult and painful. So don't try to be a superhero and go too hard when you first get it, because it could happen to you to. Just focus on learning to start it up and getting a feel for the rotation.
It's only been a few weeks so far but I do feel a bit more strength and resilience in my forearms, fingers, and wrists. The powerball is also pretty fun and a good way to pass time when one or both of your hands are idle. It's also a fun party toy.
It's very quality, but I wish it was a bit more resilient to wear caused by imperfect use, which is inevitable until you are a pro. The ball will easily get louder and rougher, and opening & cleaning to remove fine particles helps, but the wear damage is not reversible.
Summary FUN toy for exercise tool. This innocuous little ball will give you a real workout! We found that we needed to experiment until we got the 'feel' of the correct motion. (It took us awhile.) I was ready to give up, thinking our powerball was defective.
