5.0 out of 5 stars Bicycle Gears, 28 Feb. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Powerball Neon Pro (Sports)
It has been used on a daily basis and already i feel the muscles aching (especially the forearms)

This device is more on establishing a correct technique before going on to higher speeds otherwise you tend to lose the rhythm when the Powerball starts to throw your energy back at you via the gyroscope at the higher speeds.

Thumb start advice
use youtube for the practical demo
OK the theory part - once your thumb has pushed against the inner sphere, it begins rotating and it should flash some LEDs faintly- start again if not
Hold in your hand and rotate like you normally do but slow down enuf so that you feel the powerball guiding you - the pull occurs because your hand revolutions match the powerball revolutions (resonance is occurring) once you are feeling the pull then slowly begin to guide the powerball to higher revolutions - then continue as normal

this is like the gears on a bike -
Too slow and u feel the chain struggle to climb on the gear itself (in the case of the Powerball you stop feeding it energy so it stops)

Too fast and you lose the traction of the chain (the inner sphere makes a slapping noise)

Match the gear and you hear that fantastic whurring noise of the bike wheel as u impose minimum effort to turn the wheel.

You must be very sensitive to the Powerball in its low energy state in order to appreciate how much energy to give it to guide it towards the higher evolutions.
