Im just about to order some captains of crush, but I want to know if anyone things Id be better off with powerball. All help appreciated. Its for strengthining fingers, hands, wrists and forearms. Primarily hands and wrists.

Cool thanks man. I mainly want it for hand and wrist strength though, so I think Id probably be better off with captains of crush. Although if I was going for other stuff I may take the powerball. Thanks

Me and my roomate just got one yesterday (powerball) and let me tell you, that thing is insane, and basically, there's no way you'll ever be too strong for it. Takes maybe an hour to get used to, haha, at least it took me an hour to figure it out. But I would easily recommend it.

its really good,its hard to get the hang of at first,you will need to use the string to get it started,but after abit of practice when you get good at it you can start it with your hand,its a weird little thing,its like a gerbil on steroids in a ball trying to escape haha

lol! Damn cos its not actually FOR boxing. Its for arm wrestling, I can imagine the Captains of crush having a better effect for hand muscles, but the powerball more for wrist, and overall.

I'd go with the powerball man, when it gets spinnin' and you gotta try to keep it under control, you'll know why. Depending on how you hold it, it can work alot of muscles.

the powerball will be alot better for grip strength,because if you dont hold onto it tight,its gonna fly around you're house like flubber!

I have a powerball great things just make sure you don't lose the string you get with it. Also with all the wanking you do Matt I though you wouldnt need an aid

anyway i think if it what comes first i would go with the powerball because of the armwrestling
