Summary: Have used this for some years. Best part of the design is that it flexes on both sides so that it conforms to your actions. Wish it had slightly for length to it, but really is excellent product.
Summary: I purchased this product to increase grip strength, individual finger strength and to strengthen my wrists. My sport is tennis. Due to an injury and the length of recovery time, my muscles atrophied. Only until you try this product will you realize just how weak your little finger and the ring finger are. With some persistence, it doesn't take long to gain the strength you are looking for. I am recovered and enjoying being out on the courts again.
Summary: My friend had been recommending the Grip Master to me for a few years now and I recently decided to buy one. I was not sure how much tension would be best for me, so I chose to go with Medium. I found it to be a little too light for me and I eventually got used to the tension within a week of using it. To get a better perspective, I am a 20 year old male, and I work out quite frequently, but I don't normally do any forearm workouts.
I can see an increase in strength already in a week

Summary: Due to some medical problems I was out of action for 9 months and experienced muscular atrophy everywere. Also I left with lots of forearm pain. The other style hand forearm strengthers put so much extra pain on the forearms I could not use them. In less than a week an improvement in strength has been noticed also my forearms are getting some work and is not as painfull as the other styles.

Summary: I have recently started playing guitar, and have found out just how weak and inflexible my hand cabling is. I work in IT and am constantly typing, mousing, writing, or doing repetitive tasks like running screws into a network rack. As a result my hands are imbalanced in strength and horribly stiff. I have bought two of these: a light tension (the blue) to help rehabilitate my hands without straining them, and a medium (the red) as a stepping stone.
Summary: Reviewed the blue version of this product, so check there if you want. Grip is grip. Whether it's for guitar, piano, lifting, baseball, etc. This is going to benefit you as much as you're willing to use it.
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.
Summary: I first purchased Gripmaster "Pro" Hand Exercisers and I was perfectly satisfied with the product quality, but had to order regular Gripmasters because the pro versions are slightly too big for my hands. (I'm a male with medium-sized hands.) Compared to its pro counterpart, the overall quality of the regular Gripmaster is somewhat disappointing. Especially the finger buttons feel quite uncomfortable, whereas the pro models have individually padded buttons.
