    Bloody good fun and a serious hand/forearm workout. I was lucky enough to "inherit" mine for free from a mate who was heading overseas. ( dunno why he didn't take them they're not exactly heavy ) but his loss was my gain. I notice they're not exactly cheap but fark they are effective. Great for manly exploits like arm wrestling and ummmm opening jars but also hugely beneficial for deadlifting and other weighty matters. Everyone has one of those crappy plastic $2 shop hand grippers lying around somewhere that you can bust out 200 reps with in an adbreak but these things are awesome, definitely recommend them !!!

    Full of complete Americanised bullshit aye !!! Very amusing. Wow, I'm a professional, thats quite exciting.  😁 I'm not a "Gripper King" though, fark you could drive a truck over that one and it wouldn't move !! As for the "Grip Monster", My set doesn't have one of those !!



  • Haven't used ones that are rated like that :nta Always manage to have a set of grips around just for when you're sitting in front of the TV and doing nothing else. If you want to really blow yourself out, buy a tube of tennis balls and squeeze those bastards a couple of hours a day. The grips are alright but I find don't work the fingers as much as a tennis ball...

    Some dude who can close the 300 one for reps is on you tube and is able to bend a frying pan in half. Thats one good way to piss off the wife !!! Serious hand/forearm power needed to do that !!!



  • The Powerball gyros are good fun as well, more for wrist strength than just grip on its own. They do work, as I can lock out a 505 monster kite on my wrist now, and can play the jib upwind, which is a fark-load of sheet-load.  :nta



  • All good stuff for armwrestling aye !!!
