5.0 out of 5 stars The best., 15 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Powerball Neon White Pro Signature (Sports)
I am 42 and I had a nasty mountain biking accident 8 years ago resulting in a badly dislocated shoulder. I also play the guitar, and have actually had to buy a hollow bodied guitar to lessen the discomfort when I play standing up. I've tried weights and massage and several therapy methods including swimming and stretching. I also work in IT and spend 8 hours a day in front of a computer, and often found myself writhing in discomfort, constantly jigging my shoulder to relieve the cramps and pain, probably making it worse in the process. I found he powerball almost by accident, and was very skeptical, I mean how can such a thing really work? The truth is, once you get the hang of it, the gyroscopic motion of the powerball creates a pleasant resistance that you can control very easily. At low speeds, it's therapeutic and gentle on the wrist and forearm, but if you want you can get it really buzzing and when you stop the thing almost leaps out of your hand with the forces it generates. I managed to get it over 12k rpm tonight (with my good arm), and I can really feel a burn like a proper workout, but what I absolutely love is what it's done for my weak shoulder. I now feel that the whole shoulder joint is able to relax after my daily session of about half an hour, and the muscles are still with no spasms or pain all day at work. Just the mechanism itself, by which the thing works I find utterly fascinating. I think gyroscopic motion is one of the key methods by which future power generation will be accomplished and if this is the start of that then it has got off in the best of possible ways. This little machine, almost a toy in its simplicity, is the most remarkable, enjoyable, useful and effective object I have ever laid my hands on. Bar none. I assure you, if you buy it, out of interest, or as part of your workout equipment, or just as an objet for you coffee table (everyone who has seen it is fascinated with it), then you will never, and I mean never regret it. It's absolutely outstanding.

I'm only just reading your comment this evening (late to the table, I know :-) but just wanted to thank you for such a superbly written compliment to our product! I'm not sure if English is your first language, but you have summarised Powerball beautifully with your words and I would struggle to write something better - particularly with your closing statement. If you do happen to receive notification of my comment this evening and have a moment, I'd appreciate if you would send a quick email to the website as listed on the grip band of your Powerball to identify yourself to us, I'd like to have a quick chat with you please. Thanks again for your valued consideration. With kind regards, Rory, RPM Sports Ltd. (Powerball)
