Summary: I play guitar as a hobby, not so much a passion, ever since a thumb injury left my thumb weak and caused me pain whenever I'd play. I had seen Gripmasters (or at least a knock-off brand) in my local guitar shop, but I always thought it was a kind of placebo - a "squeeze this, play 10x better!" too-good-to-be-true deal.
Summary: Received the product in a timely manner and am happy with what i bought. Exactly as advertised. Am trying to pick up playin bass and i def need to strengthen and stretch out my fingers. Good product.
Summary: A friend of mine recommended me this product. I'm learning to play classical guitar and I didn't have enough strength in my fingers. I started to use it and I noticed a big improvement. At the beginning was very hard (weak fingers) but now is easy. I upgraded to 7 pounds. Very happy with this purchase.
Summary: As a new guitar player, it was evident my fingers were a bit weak. I am sure continual practice would resolve that issue but I wanted to expedite that process and so decided to purchase the Gripmaster. It has undoubtedly provided some additional finger exercise, but also a method of enhancing dexterity in the small and ring fingers. Overall satisfied with results. And yes, I have learned a few chords and have begun to entertain family and friends.
Summary: I am a adult beginner learning the cello, and I must say that, this has been a great tool to carry in my handbag. I have used this coupled with the callus builder attachment. As I cannot carry the cello wherever I go, this enables me to strengthen my fingers on the go while travelling on public transport. This is turn makes my practice sessions on the cello are more efficient, as I focus more on the notes not trying to press down the string with all my might.
Summary: You can use this or a ton of other products to strengthen your grip. I use this for squeezing because it gives the opportunity to work each individual finger, rather than the crude versions that really only strengthen the muscles that are already strong. This lends a hand in bringing your ring and pinky fingers into the equation. Its great for when you're sitting around. Watching tv, driving, etc etc.
Summary: The Gripmaster was suggested to me for a good hand/finger exercise tool for Parkinson's Disease. We have all kinds of exercise/therapy that we are able to do at home with hand weights, ankle weights, etc. But, no therapist had ever suggested anything at home to strengthen the hand - but we always did hand exercise in PT. The Yellow, X-Light Tension, was a great starting point for me. I am 5'2" tall, and weigh a little over 100 lbs.
