Summary: This is an amazing product. the guitar teacher said to buy a grip ball, but Sweetwater recommended me this one and since then the teacher bought 3 more. it is so adjustable that you can exercise each part you want.
Summary: I managed to crush my left ring finger a while back and was worried I would have to learn to cord my mandolin with my pinkie and was not looking forward to relearning the muscle control but using this exerciser is restoring the flexibility and strength to my ring finger much quicker than I thought it would.
Summary: Being that this is my first hand exerciser I don't have the experience to say its terrible or anything like that. What I can say is this one is worth the money. Though my "power fingers" can handle it to the max my weaker ones get a great workout on it. Great warm up tool in the end.
It really does build your strength and improve your playing

Summary: I got this item as a gift - within a week I noticed that my bar chords were faster, easier, and cleaner sounding. It's very sturdy and can be used to exercise in several different positions. I recommend this product highly.
Summary: I've been using the Varigrip for a week or so now, and thought I'd share my opinion so far. I bought this because I liked the adjustable tension feature. But even at its lightest setting it's pretty stiff. If you aren't way above average in grip strength already this will probably be too tight for your pinky, and maybe ring finger.
Summary: i got this thinking it would have been a bit of a toy, but i was very surprised . it seems to be well made and looks like a high quality unit ,it works the little finger well, i was lacking strength in the little finger , this is mainly why i bought this ,have been using for a few days and getting stronger finger movements ,small enough to carry in your pocket ,take any where
