I did not like. no cd. no belt. no box.
Excerpt: "The NSD Power Ball 250hz Pro is something my husband purchased to help build up the muscles in his wrist and lower arms after he strained his wrist at the gym. The Power Ball contains a gyroscope enclosed in a solid outer sphere, the gyroscope is propelled by the motion of you rotating your wrist, the faster you rotate your wrist the faster the gyroscope turns, it gradually builds up momentum causing resistance upon your fingers, wrist, forearm, ...
Summary: I am 42 and I had a nasty mountain biking accident 8 years ago resulting in a badly dislocated shoulder. I also play the guitar, and have actually had to buy a hollow bodied guitar to lessen the discomfort when I play standing up. I've tried weights and massage and several therapy methods including swimming and stretching.
Summary: My powerball came very quickly and I a small compact box. It contained 3 strings, an instructional DVD and also the powerball itself. I found it relatively easy to get the hang of using it and I soon started to feel it burn. The only negative point is that you must be very careful! I dropped it once from a height of about 50 cm and now the digital display does not work. This has not bothered me though as that is not really important.
Summary: pretty good burn when you do it but i did get a cramp on my arm once when i did it for too long :S ive lost the red lace that comes with it that you need to start it up anyone who knows where i can order 1 from inbox me a link please, thanks.
Summary: Once I got the hang of it it was fine. I have arthritis in my fingers and I thought it would help strengthen my fingers but it just seems to make them worse. Maybe I need to give it another chance and keep at it. My kids like it though and enjoy trying to beat the others at speed. Definitely built to a good quality.
Summary: As a drummer, I bought the ball so as to strenghten my stick grip. Depending on the spped and type of exercise, muscles from fingers up to elbow are involved. It is incredibly easy to use and it is fun.
Summary: I was recommended this by a Physio as I have big biceps but weak wrists (right one fractured) and small forearms! I have used this a couple of times and already you feel a little stronger in the forearm than before use. Just 5 minutes of this bad boy at a decent speed will give your forearms a good workout. It is a bit tricky to get used to, but watch the videos and be patient, it's just about getting a rhythm.

Summary: I looked at buying a Power Ball for a while and I finally gave in a few weeks ago. I play Club Cricket and tennis so use a lot of wrist work and forearm movement in both sports. Straight out of the box I had the impression that the product was of high quality despite being made of plastic and well weighted. Contained in the box is the Power Ball itself, 3-4 Starting Strings and an instructional DVD.
Summary: This is a great product for most people, but not for me. I have a problem with hyper-mobility in my elbows, wrists and fingers and was told by my physiotherapist that I should do some strength training to help stabilize my joints and that a powerball might be just the thing. I played with this for a wee while and found it good fun and easy to use and a proper work out for my arms and was really happy with it for about 2 days... then my wrists began to hurt.
