Waited a little while before giving this review as I wanted to see if I had the same issue as previous customers have stated with the squeaking. Sure enough, they started squeaking, but a quick spray with wd-40 cured that, and they have been fine ever since (note that the squeaking in no way interferes with the usage, obviously it's annoying to listen to nonetheless).

Delivery: purchased via Amazon Prime so next day as per usual, no issues there, well packaged as you'd expect (both the item itself and the amazon delivery outer packaging).

I'm a 5' 11" male, with not particularly big hands - as you can see in the 3rd picture, the top of the spring is around 5" from the base of the handle, so hopefully that gives some gauge as to the size of them as I noted some others said the grips were too large and I was also a little concerned about that - luckily I needn't have been in my case.

Very comfy to use and non-intrusive, often use them while reading so you aren't going to break out into a sweat anytime soon with them. As for results... well I've been on an exercise kick anyway, so I'm not sure how much these have helped directly, but I can tell you I've put 1/2" on my painfully thin forearms in about 7 weeks of use (started with 10 'flexes' at a time for each hand, now up to 40 with each hand), using them every other day twice a day. Great for bringing the shopping indoors from the car, not so sure my special alone time has been enhanced though.

Any average-sized man should be fine with the size of these grips, and for what it's worth my girlfriend who is 5' 5" found them too big to use comfortably when I asked her to have a test of them, so maybe a smaller size would be better if you are not so tall, or have smaller hands than the 'average' male :-)

minus half a star for the aggro of me getting a can of wd-40 to spray them with, but can't bring myself to only give it 4 stars, so a 5-star review it is.

Like the rest of the reviews of this product, I would agree that ideally you need an already strong grip to handle these without giving up. I'm a bassist and already do weights, so my grip has strengthened to a relatively high level anyway. My advice to those who want to strengthen their grip from scratch would be to buy the lower-level ones first, and then move up to this level when comfortable (no shame in it, just sense).

Good product for a great price. Only odd thing about the grips is that they leave a weird and vaguely unpleasant smell on your hands. But then, if you're a really intelligent person - like my fine self - you can use the power of water and soap to wash this away. Genius.

Just don't break the tap off with your insanely-strong hands post-workout. That would be bad. But these are good!

Help improve the strength of your arms with these handgrips These ones are pretty strong but as the previous reviewer said, best get these as the others may well be too weak for you. These have nice soft, effective grips.

I've been using these at my desk as a form of stress relief, and they definitely work. For their intended purpose, you would need to use them on a very regular basis to see results, but they're good for a low intensity exercise regime.
