The Gripmaster Pro Hand Strengthening System, Extra-Heavy Tension (11 Pounds per Finger) is designed to strengthen each finger individually and help to improve your overall strength, endurance and dexterity. According to the manufacturer, a few daily workouts with the Gripmaster Pro and you will enjoy improved control over baseball bats, tennis racquets or golf clubs – or, presumably, any other sporting weapon of choice – “with each finger working in seamless unity with the other”.
Playing guitar, violin, rock climbing, target shooting, martial arts and even yoga are just some of the activities the Gripmaster Pro is reportedly able to help you with. It’ll also relieve the repetitive stress of clicking a mouse or gaming. The device’s instructions come loaded with several different exercises – “fingertip pinch”, “flatfist”, “powergrip” and “thumbpinch” are just a few of them.
What differentiates this product from the rest is its extra-heavy tension. It is packed with 11 pounds of power per finger, so is recommended for extremely strong hands. Its small size means you can work out any time and slip it into your pocket when you want to move onto other tasks.
This device is a big improvement over the normal ‘non-pro’ Gripmaster. The normal version features a movable rubber piece that against the palm. This could twist, resulting in a loosened grip. The Pro version features a palm rest molded directly onto the unit, so you can grip the Gripmaster Pro with ease.
Its extra-heavy tension is the perfect step up for those of you used to the medium model or non-pro heavy model who want to strengthen your grip even further. It might not be the best choice for grippers just starting out, as it does provide a strenuous working, but for those with good grip strength who want to take things a step higher, it will do the job nicely.
A good solid unit, exactly what you’d expect for a ‘Pro’ model. The Gripmaster Pro Hand Strengthening System, Extra-Heavy Tension (11 Pounds per Finger) is a very well made device, practically indestructible, so will last you a good solid while.
