I bought this to assist with my grip strength for climbing. I have been climbing for about 12mnths and this is about right for me, I guess in another 6-12mnths I might be upgrading, but for now this is more than enough. I like the fact there are different excercises you can do with it.

Excellent (sturdy, lightweight) product. Perhaps the finger pads could be a little more comfortable...

There are lots of different tensions offered for sale, and lots of very mixed reviews on which is best. My advice is to head to the manufacturer's website (prohands.net) and look at the various exercises they recommend, and see which is best for you and your purposes. Roughly: if you just want to improve your overall grip strength a little (e.g. for tennis), and don't especially care about the strength of individual fingers, heavy is probably fine; but if you want to improve the strength of each finger individually (e.g. for guitar), start out much lighter than you think you need to (for your weakest fingers) and work your way up from there.

This is an excellent little gizmo for exercising your grip.

I lost a finger and received tendon damage in a fight with a dog a few years ago, and have recently taken up fencing with the Sabre again, which needless to say is tricky without the prescribed number of digits on your sword-hand. I bought this item to improve my grip on my remaining fingers and it's been a great success. I began with the Red version here (7lbs) then moved on to Black (9lbs) and now I'm on the Grey (11lbs). I keep them on my desk at work and exercise my grip whilst I'm on the phone. The improvement in my grip strength has been enormous and I can maintain my grip on my Sabre even in the most vigorous blade-work.

If you partake in a sport, or in any sort of activity, which requires firm and enduring grip, get yourself one of these, work consistently with it, and move up to the next grade when you are ready. It really works!

I can't fault the product, it does what it's supposed to but I just wish I'd chosen the Gripmaster pro. I'm a 25 year old male and find the medium tension a bit too easy, it's a challenge for my pinky but unfortunately not the rest.

Rated 5 stars because of the quality of the product.

Well this has to be about one of the best devices out there to strengthen your individual fingers. While other grip strengthening devices, like the "Captains of Crush" squeezers, will most surely improve one's overall grip, there's always a chance that the stronger fingers are doing most of the work, leaving the weaker ones getting a less than perfect workout. Not so with the Gripmaster.

I've been lifting weights for over 20 years and after trying this, I found several of my fingers weak, that is being unable to participate a lot when I tried to squeeze my Gripmaster. I got the red one, which is medium tension, and while overall its not TOO hard to do, there are a few fingers that just can't keep up! I think what I'll do is just use this one until all my fingers can do the exercise equally, and then move up to the next higher tension model.

Looking for a good way to strengthen the individual fingers? Try it- you'll be surprised how much of a workout some of your fingers will get. Guitar players, people who type a lot, or anyone trying to rehab a hand will greatly benefit. Also suggest Treat Your Own Tennis Elbow for elbow tendonitis.

A year ago I started piano at age 68. (They say learning an instrument is good to keep the grey matter in shape.) Sadly my progress was a bit slow due to my frankly elderly hands. Half an hour a day was all I could comfortably do. So I spent time toying with the idea of some sort of exerciser, and settled on the Gripmaster.

Well, that was a month ago, and I can honestly report in this short time my practice has more than doubled. I can now play for a solid hour without a single tweak or twinge. And then another session later in the day. Plus non musical things like opening bottles, turning taps, even picking up a kettle - all transformed. This exerciser has literally stopped and reversed the ageing process.

(I'm currently on the red model, but will upgrade to the next strength if and when needed. I do five repetitions of five seconds each on the 11 exercises on the website - every second day or sometimes third. ) The company is very responsible in warning people not to overdo it.

I bought this product for strengthening my hand muscles for climbing.
I originally bought the heavy tension as advised by another user. But I found it too difficult.
After using the medium for a week I can now use the heavy using fingers and palm exercises. I tend to alternate use of heavy and medium in each hand (I usually exercise both hands together)
My pinky cannot lower on either though!

There are so many exercises available to download as PDF from the gripmaster website depending on why you are using your gripmaster. So the medium is very difficult to compress on some of the exercises - which is the whole point as you are trying to increase the strength in each finger and the various muscles in your palm and back of your hand.
My finger and hand strength has increased vastly since using this product. I have big blocks of solid muscle I can tense and flex! It's quite scary...
I highly recommend this product over cheap imitations.
