We might have another addict here.. :P
Hey everyone, I guess I can use this as an introductory as well.
My name's Steve (a.k.a Crankeh). From Muncy, Pennslyvania USA. Pleased to meet everyone on the forums!
Just orderd my first (yes you read it right.. first..) NSD Powerball tonight! I had seen some friends using one quite some time ago and always thought it would be nice to have one. Mind you, I didn't have the nuts to try it out in front of those guys. :-D But for some reason never got around to getting one. Until tonight... I was browsing some videos that I was linked to by a friend and saw the video of Akis breaking the record. Sold me.. just HAD to get one. I'm sure this is going to lead to yet another addiction.. Computers and Powerball!! I hope I get it in a quick manner so I can try it out!
Again, nice to meet everyone here!
By the way, I got the 250Hz Neon Blue Pro
From one Steve from Pennsylvannia (Lancaster) to another, I say welcome to the forum and the powerball craze.
Welcome to this forum and to the world of powerball

welcome to the world of steves, stevens and stephens
My name's Tim, but I'm a Powerball addict as well, so welcome. Hope you receive it soon and start posting scores on the scoreboards.
I have actually been powerballing since Christmas and have reached the dizzy climbs of 12,800 rpm with the assistance of a squash grip around my green 250Hz Powerball! Would thoroughly recommend it if you suffer from a slippy hand!
I help to run a company who organise professional squash tournaments and our first starts in two weeks time in Liverpool at St. George's Hall. 17 of the worlds top 20 squash players will be fighting for the title and I am hoping to get Powerball involved with some of the professionals to see just how strong they are!
Anyone interested in watching professional squash in the UK should contact me!
Well got my ball in the mail today. Had to stop already... right hand feels like jello!!! Left hand.. not so good with yet.. managed a little over 10k with the right after about 10 minutes of use. Right hand.. about 7k. Totally addicted.
Thanks to powerballs.com for the speedy shippment. Ireland to USA in 4 days!!
I'll keep you all posted on my progress. Think I am done already for the night though.
Well today was a little better. Worked on really getting the technique down. Made a new personal best at 11008 with my right hand just a few minutes ago. Lagging behind with my left still. Hit right around 9500. Maybe with some luck tomorrow I'll hit 10k with my left.
My little bird arms have a hard time handling just the 11k speeds. I can only imagine what 13k+ feels like!
