well, I cleaned the ball - opened it up- wiped it clean from dust and dirt and did everything. So I wash my hand ready for a spin and I get 8600 lol- I mean I have had my highs and lows but 8600!!! it is practically impossible for me! after 5 mins I gave it everything I got to get 89** damn so close to 9,000! damn if only my ball was working properly, I swear I could of hit 11k -was in a hot mode too!
but to be serious It has become apparent that ball is 10x louder and rustier and the opposite of smooth! I just can't believe I have broken my power ball I suppose I will just have to send it back?

Ok, a lot has happened since then- but it has been quite a busy time over these weeks to Christmas but anyway since my ball broke and had sent the counter and it had been received by them was about 3 weeks and I had only been powerballing 2 months before. When my new rotor and counter had been sent, it sounded so quite I thought something was wrong with it lol and it seemed a lot difficult too; within about 20mins my highest score I had achieved was a mere 9,7**. Also I must say that I had lost the addiction lol that I had but nevertheless I continued not as often as I used too though. About an hour on my first day I had reached 10,4** which I was pleased about, however little did I know that would be the last time I would see a score like that again until a long time. After, I think I had a week where my scores were unbelievable low going down a low as 8300 lol but on average about 95**.
However, in the following the weeks I began to get much better and I had gotten up to 107** (with my left) about a few weeks from Christmas but struggled to get anything higher. My left had defiantly a better technique and felt a lot more conformable which my right didn't- back then my right couldn't get past 10,000. So I changed my technique on my right hand and turned the ball upside down for a try on that, and to my astonishment, my scores began to improve but not that quickly.
Anyway, I can’t say I Powerballed much on the way to Christmas, but on Christmas day I was shocked. I began playing and straight away with my left I achieved 10,300 cold. From then on, I knew I might get some good scores coming in. within about an hour I was in an ultra hot mood (first time in ages) and out of nowhere I just felt really strong in my left arm- I can’t explain the feeling but you just know- so I when for a spin and reached 11,011!! Best score with my new Powerball . My right wasn't doing to badly either but not as good as my left at the time. A few hours later I began to spin again, but this time I focused more on my right after my left gave some lower scores about 10,200 on average. After about 30mins I span 10,8** which was very pleasing but I knew I could get higher and later on I when into an ultra hot mode too and I span 11,169!!
lol something about Christmas just makes you spin faster
Great news there. Glad to hear you are getting back into it. I record should be on its way soon.
New Record!! 11,456 R had an amazing session today- began with my right and managed to get about 10,500 cold and I kept on do speed runs never at any point did I do a endurance run with my right, instead I did loads of speed runs about 12 altogether and i had approximately 3-8 mins break when I powerballed with my left during that time. Every next speed run was an improvement. I improve about 8 times until I reached that score. However, once I managed to get into the 11,000 I never got out- I managed to get quite a few 11,000s until I got 11456 to 11385 to 11182 where I stop for the day
Very nice session ARZG Congrats for your new score
A long time since I last posted (sadly i have been quite busy) but I still haven't achieve any higher scores I wonder what I am doing wrong- any suggestions/advice?- it has been almost 2 and 1/2 months now.
Also, I havn't been powerballing for the last couple of days as there is a crack in my rotor again so I am requesting for a new one- hopefully that will help with my scores...
Hi there ARZG,
Maybe you don't powerball as frequently as you should. Or maybe the opposite, you don't rest enoughor maybe it's just the ball.Don't really know!
I got a metal Powerball as of late. I'm very impressed with it so far. First time I used it, I was already fatigued within 5mins but it wasn't before long until I got used to it.
Scored 9901 with left hand, however I am having problems with the technique of the right hand (with rotor facing palm) the technique is fine with the plastic but somehow just doesn't work for the metal - maybe it's the grip. I tried turning it the other way (with counter facing palm) but I have a huge issue on the grip that way and feels like it's literally about to slip out of my hand. So for the right I can only get around 8500 consistently.
anyway, it just doesn't feel right so I guess my technique needs to change somehow...
Hey there, well done for getting a Heavy Metal...it's a beast, isn't it? I couldn't hold onto mine at all when I first got it, and really struggled to achieve decent scores. With the use of a grip-enhancer, (I used SurGrip), I was able to cling on better, but it was still a long time before I could really tame the thing. Now I don't use a grip-enhancer at all, and am able to hold onto it pretty easily. It'll happen to you too I'm sure.
Keep it up, and go for 10k.
heh, I used to have little grip for the plastic - now that's very easy to hold on to (very low resistance compared to the metal) ‚Äì you‚Äôre right; it‚Äôll just take time. I usually wash my hands with soap in cold water for better grip but I don‚Äôt think I‚Äôll use grip enhancers; I‚Äôll go the hard way and develop the grip naturally .
Also the metal is a bit bigger but I guess that's no excuse
