Very pleased with the Bison-1
on April 29, 2012
I bought this about a month ago because I play competitieve table tennis and seemed to lack wrist control in my backhand. Some of this I attributed to wrist weakness and ordered the Bison-1 to strenthen my wrists and grip. There were few online reviews that I could find and I considered spending this much money to be a gamble. However, the logic of the device appealed to me and it seemed as if it should work. I can say that after four weeks of use that I am very pleased with the result. My wrists are much stronger, my control of fine wrist motor movements while playing table tennis seems much easier, and my grip has gotten stronger. I don't know that I will ever bend nails as they show on the internet but I think that continued use will greatly increase wrist strenth and control. I should also add that this product will not duplicate doing wrist curls with weights. Rather, the movement is primarily a rotational one made with the wrists and it seems to strenthen a different aspect of the wrist than wrist curls. My only criticism about the product is that adjusting the resistance can be a bother because the locking rings occasionally stick in place and become hard to loosen when making an adjustment. So far I have always been able to loosen them and it may be that a little lubricant will completely remedy this problem. Overall I am very pleased with the Bison-1 as it does what it does very well and does it differently than any other product I could find. I would recommend it and believe it to be worth the price.
