Customer Reviews

All the kids and adults loved trying it.
Consumer
You could also potentially put the grip tape on the wheels themselves but I was worried this might damage the carpet in my living room.
Joe Saylor
The board makes noise while rocking back and forth , which I do not care about.

I always wanted to increase my balance. After spending a few hours searching the balance board competition, I decided to pick the Carrom 510.40.

Assembly:
Tools needed 2 9/16 wrenches or 2 adjustable wrenches. After putting all of the wooden blocks together one side would have to be held with a wrench while the other side is tightened by the wrench. It would take 10 minutes to assemble.

Construction:
For a beginner board, I am really not going to complain. Yes, some of the circular blocks had some holes in them, and some of the wood started to chip. However, it does not effect the performance. I do somewhat worry about the longevity, but it is supposed to be used on carpet or smooth floors so it does not matter. My only real gripe is that there are only 4 anti skid grip strips. Other boards have anti skid grip covering the entire board.

First Use:
I felt like a baby taking my first steps. I was holding on to the couch for dear life. After about 20 minutes, I was gradually becoming more self reliant on the board. An hour later I started to use the board without any assistance. I have an athletic background with a good history of core strength, so your learning curve may vary. If you go on youtube or read articles on the Vewdo Board or Bongo Boards, they have tutorials on how to use it.

Compared to the Competitors:
It's funny that I did more research after I purchased the product. The originator, Bongo board looked good, but for the price about $130 as of 10/19/2013 you can get something else with more versatility. Why pay that much just to move only front and back?
The Rolo Board in my opinion is the best buy. It can move front to back as well as side to side, so it doubles as balance for skate boards and surfing.

I have wanted a balance board for a long time. But they typically are out of my price range since most start at about a hundred dollars. We took a chance on this one. We have friends with a Bongo Board - I tried comparing them against each other -
The Carrom board:
1. Much more difficult to master, the spindle and board are both wood so there is going to be slipping - making balancing all that more tricky. So, this could be a negative at first, but long term better.
2. Not recommended for younger children, firstly to be safe you need to keep your feet on the grip tape and you need to be adult size to easily handle this. Secondly, the spindle tends to shoot out to the side if you loose your balance, which can cause you to fall rather hard. Our kids use this with close adult supervision.
3. For the price, I am glad we bought this board.
4. This board is a great core workout. We have been using it daily for about a month - and we all enjoy it and you can feel your core getting stronger -as you can control the board longer each week.
5. It takes practice to get this down. We started on thick rug and have worked to the point we can use it on wood or tile floors, but it's still a challenge to stay up for longer then a few minutes at a time. Our legs and core are tired after every use.

The Bongo Board:
1. Much better safety features - the whole board is grip-taped, the spindle is rubber coated so it "sticks" to the board, there is a bungee-cord that attaches the spindle to the board (so not shooting the spindle episodes like the Carrom).
2. Both back and forth and side to side motions - the Carrom only rolls back and forth along the length of the board. The Bongo's spindle is also beveled side to side, so more balancing options.

I was thrilled it was "made in America" because I like buying American products. The board is lovely to look at and I'm sure it's strong enough to support most people. Problem is, the roller underneath is a bunch of rough cut circles and squares you have to assemble yourself. It's so unfinished it's like a freshman's first shop assignment. Assembled it can't quite roll smoothly and hold the balance board guide, so you move a few inches and then it sticks. You shift your weight, roll a bit and it sticks again. What do you expect for $50?

We purchased our Carrom balance board about 4 years ago and it's still going strong. I was concerned when we first got it because A) design was so simple and B) it was hard to balance and seemed dangerous. However, we quickly learned to balance by hanging on to the arm of a chair. Kids were about 6-8 yrs old at the time. We all still use it--adults and kids, and it's a hit with visiting kids. Great to do mindlessly while watching tv (works your core.) Sometimes it rolls off the center piece a little far, so make sure nothing is too close on either side (by a couple of feet.) Highly recommend it! Easy to store under the couch, too.

Works great for improving your balance. Definitely start off using it on a carpeted area before on a hard surface. Until you get used it, you can seriously hurt yourself falling off of it.

But this product sure is fun! I tried it as soon as I put it together. It's hard, but once you get the hang of it, soooooooooooooooooooooooo much fun!!!! Seriously.

It wasn't hard at all to put together. Just follow the directions. You'll need two 9/16ths wrenches (or ratchets). I had it together in minutes. I find the quality to be perfectly acceptable. Yes it's plywood, but seems constructed fairly well. Feels strong enough. I mean I'm pretty light, but still. Plus, you know, you're not going to find something like this for cheaper. All of the high end boards are more than $100. That's insane for someone who's just trying it out.

The only problem I noticed is that it does tend to slip just a little bit. I might try some duct tape on the underside to see if that helps.
