Noice.

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

I like this product a lot, though it’s not quite as quick-n-absent minded as I had hoped. I brought it to work, but never actually used it all that much because I’m on a keyboard a lot and it wasn’t ever super convenient to hook up all the finger bands. However, even if you don’t use the finger bands it still is nice to have a resistance ball accessible all the time. I have also kept it in my car, again not with the finger things strapped on but just as a resistance ball that I can pick up real quick at red lights or whatever. I’ve been happy with it. Well made and durable.

Great way to stay in shape

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

I really enjoy the resistance straps on the fingers. It’s important to work those opposite muscles, and the grip saver makes this easy. I got the medium difficulty and have not been disappointed. The medium is a great place to start as it does have a fair amount of resistance but is very manageable. The finger straps aren’t super convenient but do not take much time to get on your fingers

Good Therapy Tool

This is an interesting tool! It was perfect for me after having some wrist pain after long climbing sessions. Good too work those opposite muscles!

Good time killer!

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

This is a pretty cool little tool to help keep your hand/wrist/forarm strength up during down times (Watching TV, at office, etc). It works your hands and fingers in ways that you normally wouldn't with an older fashioned spring loaded grip strenth tool .

Neato, but not practical

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

while this sounds like a petty complaint, it is actually kind of a pain in the butt to get it on your fingers. Resistance bands you can just pop on and go so it is much easier to use it idley at the office where as this requires this weird little preparation time where you strap up every finger. It works, but considering this supposed to be an absent minded training tool it is kind of annoying.

Great little exercise at the office.

I've put it through the wringer

Awesome to have on your desk to fig-it with. Not necessarily a must for climbing but a great little way to keep your fingers and forearms conditioned. The little rubber piece is kind of nuisance with it constantly falling out and having to get it back through the foam ball. Still would recommend. Still an awesome little tool.

Work your Antagonist muscles

Climbers often strain their hands through overuse. A great way to curb that is to pick up one of the 3 gripsavers that work best for your needs. Your hands will thank you.

Fun and useful

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

This thing is great because you can build grip strength and watch TV at the same time. Do be sure to read the instructions. It is a simple device, but there is a right way and a wrong way to use it. I’ve already noticed improved grip strength after just a short time. More importantly for me, my carpal tunnel does not feel as strained as it used to after climbing of any other activity requiring lots of grip. I would recommend this thing to anyone, not just climbers

More Therapy

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

I just got into rock climbing and completely fell in love. I was looking for something cheap, yet reliable to have a little bit of training. This Gripsaver is a bit too soft to be an actual trainer to develop muscle growth. Though I do give it a 4 star because as I said I am new to climbing and my forearms are practically pumped out all day! And this thing is soft enough to help alleviate that growing pain. This thing is solid for all around forearm muscles. Different stretches and grips really help. This thing is pretty rad!

Pretty Cool

Familiarity:

After a beautiful weekend of hard sending, sitting in the office with the grip saver is pretty cool. Training the opposing muscle groups with little bands is a very subtle way to stay strong. After all, working antagonist muscle groups is a huge factor in injury prevention. Can be strong if you are hurt! I didn't have any issues with fit :)

Resistance feature is nice

Familiarity:

Squeezing the foam ball won't build much grip strength, but the resistance bands offer a nice change of pace.

Unique tension

I've put it through the wringer

I've had a good experience with this product. I could tell right away that I was excercizing muscles that weren't getting much attention. I wouldn't say it's a "must have", but I thought it was pretty neat.

Pretty aiight.

I wouldn't necessarily recommend this as a training tool, but for those with mild tendinitis, the band feature is a really nice, no-fuss therapy tool. Rubber bands from broccoli or the like work well too, but I won't complain about the individual finger holes!

piece of crap

received it without the pinch tabs

Not one-size fits all

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

I'm a short guy and I've got short fingers. I got this because I liked the look of the rubber center piece to work out the outside of my forearms. Unfortunately it doesn't really generate the tension I'd need for it to be useful. I assume that it would work find for someone with longer fingers. On the flip side, my fingers aren't skinny, so the loops are a bit too tight.

Metolius Gripsaver Plus

I received mine without the finger grips. Was excited that it was shipped so fast, but was very, very disappointed that I didn't receive the complete product. Now it just sits in the box.

I probably would give it a higher rating, except it arrived without the finger grips. I just received the ball. Was excited that it was shipped so fast, but very disappointed that the finger grips were missing. Now it just sits in the box.

Great for sore fingers

I received the red (medium) grip saver as a gift awhile back. I use it all the time, and it helps when my fingers are sore from climbing. I bought the blue (easy) and decided to return it because it was too easy, and didn't seem like it would do much. I decided to replace it with the orange (hard) and so far am liking it.

Finger holes

Familiarity:
I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I think it may just be me because I haven't seen this complaint in any other review, but the finger holes are SUPER small. I tried it out and about 1min into it my fingers went number because the holes were too small. It'd be amazing if they were bigger. I do not recommend this for larger fingered people.

>Rating:

Does this product specify the difference between each level; easy, medium, hard, in terms of force applied to your hand? Say, pounds per finger?

Hey Lincoln, Metolius has not published the resistance strength of each difficulty level. Cheers, Andrew Williams
