Welcome to the forum! Seems there have been lots of guys our age getting powerballs lately. Thats not a bad score for a beginner!
P.S. Look like you're a gamer by your sig and avatar. I do a bit of gaming myself.
Hey Panda, how's windy Maidenhead this morning? Winchester here!
Welcome to the forums and the wonderful (yet addictive) world of Powerballs!
Welcome. Always nice to see another UKer getting into powerballing. Nice score aswell.
Thanks for the welcome!
I am an avid PC gamer, I play BF2142 at the moment. Adrenal1in, it is really windy here today, some of the buildings at school had the roofs ripped off and we all had to be escorted off the premises! I'm working on getting up to 11kbut can't quite manage it yet, I'll keep you posted.
Hi Panda, and welcome to the forum!
You've definitely found the best product on the planet Earth! These Powerballs are definitely fantastic instruments. You mentioned gaming and BF2142. That's a great game!
I have even found that training on a Powerball can make you better when playing games that involve rapid-fire button pressing, such as Galaga. I came across the video game again at an arcade about a month ago, and I always enjoyed the game though my scores were just mediocre. Before using the Powerball, I would always get scores around 70,000 or so with one quarter. Usually my hand would just tire from all button-pressing. After having train with the Powerball, I was able to get a score of over 600,000 the last time I played it. I was able to feel it in my forearms while I played it that it was Powerballing that made the difference. Once I was warmed up on the arcade game, the actual button pressing was giving a nice burn that was similar to doing 90s runs on the Powerball.
So I have found that Powerballing can make you play video games with greater endurance and quicker button pressing.
Welcome again, Panda, and keep us posted about your improvements!
Same here in the Netherlands. A crane crashed onto one of the buildings I can see from my office window. It's like hell out there. And the worst is yet to come (at least, that's what the weather forecast predicts).
