There were a few floating round the office last year and my old flatmate had one. Good fun once you get the hang of them.

...once you get the hang of them.

were you joking there?

he he

so, you start them up, and throw them across the room, and THEN you have to pick them up, as they vibrate?...

sounds like a kinky night in to me.

Throw them across the room?!

I thought they were simply for strengthening your wrist...

Some of them have rev counters on the side. What you do is keep spinning it for as long as you can and see how many revs you can get. The faster it is - the better you're doing (obviously).

Couple of my friends have them. They both say it has made their wrists stronger..

I bought one of them and was so impressed with it that I bought one each for all my family. Good fun, good exercise and good for folk who have Repetitive Strain Injury, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and stuff.

Managed to get mine up to 12,117 rpm.

Oh, yeah, make sure you get the one with the rev counter otherwise . I got the Neon one that lights up when it reaches about 1,000 rpm but apparently they are a little harder to get up to speed than the non-lighty-up eens.

Got it off some dealer on ebay, yeah about 25.

I got the techno version....although the rpm counter doesn't work as well as it should (it beams the rpm via lights)

Great fun though, arrived this morning, arm is killing me, got to be agood sign...

They have a bunch of them in that weight store (on the corner of the streets between John Lewis and Aberdeen College) and they also cost 25 there. Probably less if you have a student discount.

Is there anywhere cheaper online?
