I stumbled upon Power Balls recently and am very interested in joining the phenomenon. However, the number and types of options makes deciding on which one to buy quite difficult. Without having used one in the past, I have no baseline to measure against when comparing the 250Hz & 350Hz models. In addition, the starter cords seem like a hassle and they must break frequently (why else would replacements come in packs of ten?), so the autostart model may be worth the premium price.
Since I can't buy all of the models, I'm hoping the experts here can offer some guidance. I'm a 38 year old athletic male, fit but not a fanatic. Grip strength is interesting to me to apply to amateur mixed martial arts practice & matches, including grappling, Jiu-Jitsu, and Thai-clinch work.
I like the challenge & benefits of strength over endurance inherent in the 350Hz models, but it sounds like they are difficult to master for newbies. I like the idea of the autostart model since starting the gyro seems to be so difficult to initialise that it requires viewing multiple videos to even be able to begin utilising the PB, but it is only available in 250Hz. The limited edition seems highly regarded, but other than in finishing detail it's hard to discern much of a difference from the other 250 Hz models.
So which PB might you recommend to a newbie like me? Any advice or suggestions are much appreciated.
