hard to grasp at first but now addicted!
on 7 February 2012
found it difficult to get going at first, the instructions are rubbish and come on a cd, the same instructions are on the website so you can go there now and read up. You put a string into a hole and wind it up, then pull the string really fast to get it going, then you have to sync yourself with the spin, slow turns then build up once you're in the flow. Hard to explain, you'll know what I mean when you try it. I think people give up too soon thinking it's broken, but it's all in the wrist as they say.
when you're doing it right the lights keep going and you can feel the weight of it. After a while your arm starts to get tired. I'm still trying to work out how to score on it/what the numbers mean etc. It does get quite addictive working out your score and trying to keep it going longer.
I don't think there's much difference in the different powerballs you can get, you may as well just get the cheapest (check if there's a counter or not). I wish I got the blue one now but function is the same.
I wish there was somewhere to keep the string, I'm probably going to lose it but it did come with 2. I'm tying it to the hand strap at the moment. You need to keep the handstrap on as it's hard to hold on to when spinning fast but it's also annoying and gets in the way.
