I find it quite relaxing. Sometimes I'm just sitting here between jobs Powerballing gently to keep my wrists pain free.

It's quite addictive when you start going for high scores. Laughing

I bought one for my sister and set a deliberate low score of 9000rpm on it. A week later she was boasting how she had beaten my score with an impressive 10000rpm's, so right in front of her I totaled her score with 11,600rpm. Gutted! he he. She still hasn't beaten it.

Needless to say it's great for sibling rivalries. Wink

My current score it just over 12k.

Currently on 12,466. We got one for my step daughters boyfriends b'day. We have a little competition going at the minute. Now he's now out done me as he can "thumb start" it 3 out of 4 times and i've only ever managed it once....

My step son can't even keep it spinning....

ETA: Thumb Started first time today!! Typing single handednow.....

I just checked and I am on 12,480rpm (no kidding) which I managed a few days ago. I also have the solid chrome Powerball which is made of metal. In powerball terms is like bench pressing a mini when you get it up to speed. Risk with that one is just dropping it due to fatigue. Confused

I recommend the orange powerball (250Hz Pro) to buy as this is the fasted and smoothest powerball on the market, but don't be tempted to buy a non NSD POWERBALL brand one as they aren't any good IMO.

AHHH! That'll be some happy playing when it arrives!
You'll probably find it tricky to start at first but be patient, you'll get it!
