Only one size?
I think the answer is probably obvious but does the powerball only come in one size?
My girlfriend tried it last week and hit 9,000 in a few attempts which i was amazed by, i beleive that would already put her in the womens top 100. The problem she has though is her hands are to small, her fingures don't even reach half way down the rubber grip band!!!! (She really is very petite). I know part of using the powerball is it improves your grip but she is obviously at a big disadvantage as even with a really good grip, with her hands that small she just won't be able to hold onto it beyond about 10K i reckon.
i asked that a while ago... and the answer is.. no.
the 250Hz or 270Hz, it only comes in 1 size...
BUT, the Metal powerball its a bit bigger than the 250Hz.
I think the idea of smaller Powerballs was toyed with, but I don't think they'll appear. You could always get your girlfriend a Techno, and remove the rubber grip band. The Techno doesn't have a counter, making it feel a touch smaller, and removing the grip band makes it smaller still. Just have to make sure your hands and the Powerball are very clean.
Hmm, well i'll give the techno a go, and remove the rubber band and see how much that helps.
Also is there any 'grip' stuff you can buy to put on your hands?
I use something called SurGrip when I use my Metal Powerball, because it's larger, slippery chrome and bloody powerball when it's spinning fast...I simply can't keep hold.
I know that people disagree with grip-stuff, saying that one should train the grip to get stronger. But that's not what Powerball's about for me...it's about training and maintaining my arm muscles, and I can't do that if I can't hold on.
