does what it says on the tin, but would advise go for the RED one if it was needed for therapy reasons.

sadly this choice was not available when i ordered. It would be more use to more users as it is a bit softer.

Twist-n-Bend hand bar by CANDO 5 Oct. 2007
By K. Hiltz - Published on Amazon.com
Colour Name: Black - x-heavy (most resistive)
The Twist-n-Bend extra heavy hand bar is a solid tube of rubber. It comes coated with a powder that is to keep it dry in its sealed wrapping. A considerable amount of time goes by before the powder is removed from the rubber, even if it is washed in cold water. With use, a gritty residue comes to the surface of the rubber and the bar along with your hands have to be wiped off after the workout. Maximum force is necessary to bend and twist this hand bar, so it is not for someone who lacks superior arm strength. The X-Heavy model provides a good supplement to arm workouts and would be of great use for wrestlers, judo & jiu-jitsu competitors, along with boxers, bouncers, and anyone else that is in combat sports or situations.
Average folks should use the medium, light, x-light or xx-light model of the Twist-n-Bend.
For the price, its probably a better choice than the more expensive name brand model by Thera-Band.

no quality 7 Oct. 2009
By Scott Walker - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I ordered 4 different Cando flexible hand bars: red (light), green(medium), blue(heavy), and black(x-heavy). All four colors felt about the same. To check my sense of feel I measured the force required to bend the bars to 90 degrees. The forces were as follows: red- 10.2 lb, green- 8.2lb, blue- 11.2lb, black- 10.4lb. The Cando bars appear to be trying to compete with the There-Band "Flexbar", which come in three colors and stiffnesses red(light), green(mid), and blue(heavy). Using my measurements the force to bend these bars 90 degrees are red- 2.3lb, green- 4.3lb, blue- 6.5lb. I am using the bars to do "eccentric" contraction exercises for tennis elbow. I find the green Flexbar good for me. All the Cando bars are too stiff. It is clear to me that there is no concern about quality by the makers of the Cando bar. How else could one explain that a "light" red bar having about the same stiffness as a black "x-heavy" bar.

BEWARE!!! SELLER REFUSES REFUNDS 23 Oct. 2009
By Jack Bandel - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I bought the "green" model which is supposed to be "medium" strength. I opened the package, tried it out and it was ridiculously hard to bend, am I am a big guy....6'1 and 190 lbs.
Having read other comments here about the quality control being way off, it wasn't surprising. Anyway, I returned it to the seller at my expense "The Therapy Connection" and they said since I "openened" it, it is now "used" and they won't accept it back. They said I should have "tried it while it was inside the plastic"???????? Are they serious? WHAT A RIPOFF!!!!! Now they are unwilling to send this useless piece of junk back to me unless I Pay for shipping again!!!

DO NOT ORDER THIS PRODUCT UNLESS YOU ARE 100% SURE YOU KNOW THE COLOR YOU WANT! YOU WILL BE STUCK WITH IT.

Be careful of the resistance you choose 19 Nov. 2009
By ILikeAmazon - Published on Amazon.com
Colour Name: Black - X-Heavy Verified Purchase
Just wanted to mention that the "Black" max resistance (X-Heavy) is only for folks with serious arm strength...I thought I was in that class, but "Black" was too much for me...and I work out 6x/wk.

I have no real issues with the product. It does have a strange smell when you get it (kind of plastic-y, but not unpleasant).

Cando Blue Twist-n-Bend (for tennis elbow) 2 Nov. 2012
By Bobby Nicks - Published on Amazon.com
Colour Name: Blue - Heavy Verified Purchase
Received the blue Cando Twist-n-Bend (2nd highest level of resistance) within 2 weeks of ordering, delivered to Australia. The product arrived in new condition with basic plastic packaging in a padded cardboard box. It has a solid feel and works as described (twisting under tension). It provides a challenging exercise for the 'back of the forearm muscles and muscles around the elbows'. Using other grip strengtheners regularly for 2-3 months now to alleviate tennis elbow, I rate this product as low to moderate difficulty with 15 repetitions achievable straight out of the box but still challenging enough to feel the benefit of muscle fatigue ('the burn').
