Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

Introducing Powerball - one of the most unique and dynamic products available - 8 world records and counting !! The Powerball is a dynamic and completely revolutionary new gyroscope that literally explodes with mind numbing torque and inertia once you activate its internal rotor. It's about the same size as a tennis ball and weighs just a little more, but take a Powerball in your hand, set that motor in motion with the cord provided (or use your finger when you get used to it) and you'll experience an extraordinary sensation:

Powerball slowly comes alive with gyroscopic force - a sublime yet pleasant resistance to your movement which is transmitted directly into your wrist and arms and which provides soothing, non impact rehabilitation at these lower speeds.

You want more?

Take it higher...much higher! Bring your new Powerball up...up to 10,000rpm...the forces are now much stronger, much more vibrant. Higher! Take it to 12,000rpm...no, higher still...take it right up, thrashing and jerking as your arm and wrist try to control; and calm it down, faster and faster it spins until you have it up to an unbelievable 15,000rpm at which point it's exerting almost 40lbs of pressure on your limbs is travelling at nearly 250 revolutions per second - no batteries, no motor, just pure gyroscopic power - the fastest propelled device ever created !!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerball and Trumpet playing 25 Sep 2007
By GsyMoo
Verified Purchase
I bought a Powerball after having a go with my brother's.
He'd bought it for fun, but I found it such a good therapy I bought my own.

By day I'm an electrician, by night I play the trumpet / cornet and I use a computer a lot, hence over the years I've developed some mild repetitive strain injuries in my arms, especially the right fore-arm.
For years I've been just `putting up with it' as it's not usually more than a dull ache but if I've had a heavy day at work I notice my arm stiffening up, not good if I'm playing brass that evening.

I've found that if I use my Powerball when I get a moment a few times a day I can work some heat into the muscles which really loosens them up and gets rid if any aches.
I try and do about 10 minutes sustained at a moderate speed with short bursts up to full tilt, swapping arms as each one gets tired. Believe me, as the speed goes up, these things become really heavy!

What surprised me was the first time I went to band practice after using the Powerball just how much more nimble my fingers were in the running sections. I've always struggled in faster sections trying to get my fingers to go fast enough, but using the Powerball to loosen up beforehand makes quite a significant difference.

What's nice about the Pro model (apart from the funky flashing lights (mine's blue)) is the little trip computer on top so you can keep a track of how you're doing, as it can indicate speed, top speed reached, work done, and strength test, so you can keep tabs on how you're doing.

All in all, the Powerball is quite fun to use, in a similar way to a YoYo, but more importantly it really helps to condition your arm muscles. If you do anything in your daily life that involves using your arms with strength, speed or precision then you'll most probably find one of these a real help.

I, like a good few others here, got my Powerball Pro "Neon" (mine's blue) and was instantly surprised by its tiny size, yet bold claims to health (arm strength) benefits... At first I was sceptical, but after a week or so of using the Powerball every day, in addition to my regular exercise routine, I have definitely seen positive results, and I echo the praise given by the Trumpeter fellow, I play keyboard/organ/piano, and I have noticed a definite improvement in playing-stamina since using the Powerball; my fingers and wrists, they ache no more, even after a good 2 hour ragtime and show-tunes session!

It's also ideal for you sporty types, as you may well have guessed. Apparently it also helps those poor souls with RSIs. Powerball is NOT recommended for those suffering heart conditions however.

Another warning; Powerball is addictive, and taking it to work could result in you getting chastised or fired... or on a plus it may make you seriously popular, and of course get you promoted, depending on whether you let your Boss get the best RPM score!

Starting the Powerball is almost as fun as using it, you get a string provided to pull-start the ball, a little like a petrol Mower, then the trick is to rotate your wrist in such a way as to start the gyroscope accelerating. When up to speed, the LEDs flash, and it looks awesome. The instructions enclosed with the PB Pro are clear and concise, and easy to follow. Apparently there is a method of getting the ball started by a flick of your thumb, but I have yet to master it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sceptical.... 17 Jan 2008
I first bought a cheaper version from a famous store and was well disappointed,left me thinking a lot more effort was needed to make this work. But just this year on the run up to Xmas I met a sales person who was playing with one in a Major toy store. I felt a bit silly but enquired, and was promptly left standing spinning a Powerball.

Lessons:
1, Beware of Cheap imitiations they just don't do it. (Yes I know the real powerball is made in Taiwan, but the quality speaks for itself)
2, The glow from this thing at night draws you in like a moth.
3, It's about the endurance after 10 mins I could feel the difference in my forearms and wrists.
4, Got excited and bought it on the spot for £25, Amazon doing it cheaper.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for Idle Hands & Very Addictive 3 July 2008
Verified Purchase
My motivation to purchase the Power Ball was to improve muscle in my forearms for golf and help top-up my fitness whilst sat on boring audio conferences at work. This leads me to the three clear reasons why you would purchase one of these:

1. it's great for muscle tone in your arms (fingers, wrists, forearm, biceps & triceps)
2. Moreover, it's very addictive and makes you very competitive (even if only with your own previous best) and, importantly
3. It is immensely fun

There have been a couple of poor reviews suggesting that the gyroscope doesn't spin for long, but they simply haven't worked out how to use it -the gyro will spin forever so long as you are turning the Power Ball using your wrist and the correct technique. It does take a few goes to understand, but once you've succeeded it becomes intuitive and extremely fulfilling.

Power Ball is one of my better purchases that, if truth be told, was done on impulse but is now used everyday when I'm around the house or sat at my desk.

One piece of advice is to get the 'Pro' versions that come with the digital counter and functions; it is much more rewarding when you can see your progress and it's worth the few pennies extra.
