Reasonable price, reasonable quality

There's nothing exceptional about this, but it's almost the cheapest one I could find (once you add in P+P, which is very high for some of the others on here), and it's solid enough. It comes without instructions, but look up 'Ab Wheel' on YouTube and you can find some good demonstration videos (the one by cassiusclaynyc is particularly good, as it tells you how to avoid hurting your back doing this exercise).
This wheel comes in 3 pieces (wheel, handle+grip, other grip) which assemble extremely easily, and it feels fairly solid with my weight on it (70kg). If you're a lot heavier you might want to look for one of the ones with double-thickness wheels, as this one might wobble a bit, but generally I think this one would be okay for anyone who isn't seriously overweight.
Doing the exercise feels a bit silly, but at least that makes it fun, and when performed correctly as per the videos on YouTube you can definitely feel it in your abs. This item won't make you fit overnight, and remember that your abs won't show up unless you get your body-fat percentage low enough, but at the price this is a good addition to your range of exercises and it will help with core strength if not necessarily with visual appearance.
