My standards for this product were really low for the price.
But wow! when it came in the post, I was startled.
These are very well built products, not flimsy at all, very useful for building that bonebreaking handshake.
I also am a musician, and when i play sometimes my fingers just couldnt keep up, but now they can.
Just trust me and invest a little money in this, it is really well made.
Will be getting the X-Heavy soon.
REMEMBER: This is a really hard one to use, get medium first as that is better for reps to keep up your hands strength, this Heavy model in my eyes is just for building strength where medium maintains aswell.
Try medium first then move up, if medium is too weak you have something to do reps with :)
BEST £££ I EVER SPENT - I use it as something to do when I am watching TV etc, and because of using this so much I can finally crush my friends hand, he used to be stronger than me! hehe!
Also: For my Elderly Grandmothers birthday I am going to get her the XX-Light as she is on her strength is getting worse, because blood clots from shopping bags are not good!
I bought this product on the 10th April 2012, Now it is 20th June 2012 and I can gladly say that it is brilliantly made, it is still as good as when I bought it!!!
I would like the get the XX-Heavy someday hopefully, my strength has gone up leaps and bounds! :)
