does anyone have one? are they any good? im thinking of getting one
I have one. Got some pretty good scores on it actually. We all call it the 'masturbation ball' since the motion you need is very similar to the motion of the nickname we gave it.
I don't think its that great. Its fun, can give a warm up, workes the forearms ok, but isn't special. I think it is only good for warming up, cooling down, and getting better at powerball.
I have to say though, I have a few buddies who can do it and its fun to mess around with when you are drinking.
I watched the video of the "world champions."
They looked like super-jerkers.
I've got one, I like it its really fun and if you keep it at a fair percentage of your max speed for a minute or two it'll make your arm burn like nothing else. The one thing I'd warn you about is that it is very addictive and can make people highly competitive.
Haha omg i saw the video.... serious jerking
they are world champions at jerking
That's pretty much what most of the guys on the gripboard have said as well. Basically, it gives the forearms a good pump but does little for grip or forearm strength.
