Powerball Autostart -- No Strings Attached
Introducing the new Powerball Autostart, the pull-back-and-start version of the mighty 250Hz Powerball. Gone is the requirement to wind a pull-string around the central gyro, you just pull back along a hard surface, and power straight into your Powerball run.
New Method, Same Quality
Offering the same superlative build quality as the other Powerballs in the range the 250Hz Autostart has the added advantage of being truly portable and can be easily operated by anybody – beginners wont need practice to perfect their start, and seasoned Powerballers won’t have to break their stride between runs.
Play and Compete
With the Powerball Autostart there’s no need for lengthy waits between powerball sessions; the new version allows competitions to step up a notch, letting you power into your next session without pausing to reload your Powerball.
Exercise and Rehabilitate
The Powerball may be used as an entertaining toy, but at its core is a serious fitness that creates incredible forces to strengthen the forearms, wrists and fingers. This makes a favourite for racket-sports players, martial artists, guitar players and anyone looking to improve the power and precision of their technique.
The Autostart model, which unlike the basic models in the range, it does not require cords - it has its own unique mechanism built into the rotor that allows it to be automatically started.

Your first attempt feels foolish (particularly when you try it in the "wrong" hand for the first time) but it is wonderful to see how quickly your hands and ears get use to the device. I mention ears because you will soon learn how well you are doing by the noises and pitch of the device. My son wanted a go which has led to us have competitions over the last couple of days because it is so addictive. You will be surprised at a) how much you sweat and b) how your arm can ache afterwards.
The packaging is very nice although a small printed manual would have been very handy, hence the fifth star being absent. There is a small CD supplied with it and there is plenty of help on the web although it seems odd to need a computer to find out how to use it. Having said that though you won't be disappointed when you've had a go. it is tremendous fun.
I've not been disappointed, it is very easy to start - if you have any sort of wrist problems the starter string is going to be tricky so I'd strongly recommend this version. You can use two hands to turn the inner ball if it's too hard to use just one hand (for starting). It also makes it really easy to get it going again after you fail to keep it spinning fast enough (which will happen often at the beginning, this is the whole point - it is meant to be difficult or it wouldn't give you any benefit).
After a few days of use - I can already feel the improvement in strength.....for those who say it isn't hard, try keeping it going at over 7,000 for more than five minutes and I can assure you that even people without any wrist injury will start to struggle, hold it out in front of you palm down (how physios teach its use) and you will feel the benefit in your forearm as well as the wrist.
As others have said the 'deluxe case' is actually a plastic shop display box so I'd recommend buying the case that Amazon sell to keep it clean and safe. A paper quick start guide for the different settings on the electronic display would make it perfect but it's still worth five stars as you can easily print them from the CD - which does include instructions for starting it - they are just on a different tab from the manual ones as the CD covers both versions.
Now to the product. Well it's brilliant. I work out quite regularly and one of the things holding me back in my lifting is my grip strength. The Power Ball seemed like a better solution than traditional grip strengtheners. Am I glad I made that decision. Within an hour of opening the box I can sustain 8,000 RPM with my dominant hand and my forearm feels pumped, my hand is zinging yet there is no pain or pressure on my callouses. Genius product and I can tell it's going to be addictive!
Other than that it's great, although it take a while to get use to the different programming options.
