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 rotor in motion with the cord provided (or use your finger when you get used to it) and you'll experience an extraordinary sensation:Power ball 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.
Powerball is the world's most powerful hand gyroscope, generating speeds of over 16,000 rpm!
Simply by starting up the Powerball in your hand and rotating your wrist faster you can develop incredible speeds and increase your strength.
Powerball is seriously addictive for all ages, making it ideal for play, exercise, or fun competitions.

Bring your new Powerball up to 10,000rpm, the forces are now much stronger, much more vibrant. Higher! Take it right up to an unbelievable 15,000rpm at which point it's exerting almost 40lbs of pressure on your limbs and is travelling at nearly 250 revolutions per second.
No batteries, no motor, just pure gyroscopic power
Not suitable for Children Under 14yrs

I wonder if some of these balls need a short "running in" period before they work properly. Both I and my partner tried hard to operate the ball when it first arrived; with complete lack of success. I studied all the advice for beginners on forums and watched YouTube videos and could not see what I was doing different. My partner had got bored and given up. But I carried on and after about an hour (spread over two days) suddenly it started to work. From there on I could do it every time, and with either hand.
But here's the thing -- my partner now was persuaded to have another go, and she could instantly do it with either hand.
So either we both suddenly learned how to do it, and remember my partner did not spend long trying. Or something in the ball changed and made it easier. I really cannot see that I am doing anything different to what I was doing at first. And now that I can do it easily, I find that the actual motion is not very important. when the ball is spinning quite fast I can keep it spinning by waving my arm around or just shaking my hand from side to side.
The message to beginners is therefore KEEP TRYING.
One thing I have not seen mentioned anywhere else is the NOISE the ball makes. I think this is the secret to operating it. When it is just spinning on its own (and slowing down) it is almost silent. When you move your hand around and start to power the gyro, the ball makes a different noise -- a sort of scraping or low growling sound; this is what you are aiming for. And you will start to feel some resistance to the the motion at the same time, as you start to force the gyro to spin faster. If there are any banging or thumping sounds, that is wrong -- adjust the motion of your hand to avoid making that noise. And finally as the ball spins faster it produces a noise like a jet engine spooling up.
Although I've enjoyed trying it, I can see that after a week or two it probably will be like most other exercise equipment and collect dust in a cupboard. But for the small price, and the fun we've had and expect to have (showing it to visitors) I think it is well worth getting this gadget to play with. (but get one with lights).
Product is easy to use. Addictive? not to me. Noisy? it makes a whirring sound but it is not that intrusive. The noise is not too dissimilar to a dyson vaccuum cleaner but very very very much quieter.
Has it made a noticeable difference yet? Not that I can tell. ( one month into using it )
I would have probably bought the neon with the digital display as well.
The idea that this is a fun thing baffles me. It is not a toy. It is an exercise device.
In order to see the display you have to stop manually rotating the Powerball to be able to read the numbers. Your hand covers the display up to that point.
The Powerball has an age related advisory - not to be used by under 14 years - I do not know why?
Would I recommend it? Yes, if your weak in the wrist like I am then this should help improve wrist and forearm strength, I hope.
It is a few weeks on since I last wrote about this and I am starting to notice an improvement in my ability.
Noticeably improved stamina and I can do 1000 reps well under 20 minutes now. There is a definite improvement with my weaker left wrist.
He came round Christmas day and said he could not get the hang of this 'toy' as he called it, so had a go myself, I picked it up and after a couple of minutes I got the thing going, it is a little awkward at first but read the instructions and all becomes clear. After showing him what to do to get the ball spinning and to keep it spinning, he got the hang of it and loves it.
After using the power ball you can feel the effect it is having, and with practice keep it going for long periods, wind this ball up and the effect is amazing, it is totally addictive (to me anyway), so much so that I am going to order myself one, just to keep the dreaded arthritis away and keep the arms and hands in working order, a daily work out with the Powerball should do this.
Fun, Addictive and also good exercise.
After getting the hang of getting it started, the powerball picks up speed with an increasingly satisfying whirring noise. The force of this gyroscope can be felt through your entire arm and afterwards my entire limb was knackered.
However it cannot be stressed enough that the fun comes when two other people see it. It becomes a massive competition of who can get the highest speed on the counter. The first time, we all span away until we could not physically continue.
It's cheap, it's fun, it's useful and your friends will love it too.
Now for the Item. At first it is tricky to figure out but it didnt take me long to get going. I bought it because I want to build some muscle on my arms since im a bit of a weakling and I want to win some wrestling matches with my boyfriend ;)
So I used it for about 6 mins (3 mins on each arm) and Im aching now. Which obviously means it's working. Im thrilled with it.
My brother is the one who told me about this because he uses it and it has helped him build muscle.
I will do another review in a year to say how its going.
