Hybrid Autostart Powerball® Gyroscopes – where beauty meets power. A high-performance Metal Series rotor housed inside a classic Powerball® shell.
DO HYBRID POWERBALLS REQUIRE A CORD TO START?No, Hybrid Powerball models are all ‘autostart’. They do not require a cord or string to get them started, but rather feature an easy-to-use automatic starting mechanism.
WHAT DOES AUTOSTART MEAN?
Autostart Powerballs are fitted with an automatic starting mechanism and do not require a cord or string to get them started. Simply wind back the rotor three or four times and release for quick and easy starts every time. Check out the 'instructions' page of our website for starting techniques and tips.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A HYBRID POWERBALL AND OTHER POWERBALL MODELS?
Hybrid is our latest Powerball creation. Hybrid models feature the polycarbonate shell of our standard 280Hz Powerballs and the heavyweight zinc rotor of our Metal Series Powerballs. Hybrid models are literally a ‘hybrid’ of these two types of Powerballs.
If you’re looking for the power of a Metal Series Powerball with the classic appearance (and lower price) of a 280Hz standard model, then the Hybrid is for you.
HOW MUCH DO THESE MODELS WEIGH?
- Hybrid Classic: 383g
- Hybrid Pro: 392g
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PRO AND CLASSIC HYBRID POWERBALL?
Powerball Classic and Powerball Pro are generally the same in every way, except that Powerball Pro comes with an inbuilt LCD speed counter for tracking spin speeds.
If you purchase a Hybrid Classic, but later change your mind and decide you would like a Powerball with a speed counter, you can simply remove the classic ‘cap’ on the Powerball and attach a speed counter. Speed counters may be purchased separately from our online store.
WHAT PARTS OF THE BODY DOES POWERBALL STRENGTHEN?Powerball strengthens the entire kinetic chain of the arm - from fingertip right up to shoulder. If you’re interested in serious strengthening, then our Hybrid and Metal Series Powerballs are the right choice for you. Strengthen your wrists for effective injury prevention, develop incredible grip strength and build muscle mass in the arms and shoulders - it’s as easy as picking up a Powerball.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I USE POWERBALL?How often you use Powerball depends entirely on your level of fitness. We recommend using Powerball for at least 3 minutes a day for strengthening purposes.
WHAT IS THE FUNCTION OF THE LCD SPEED COUNTER?Hybrid Pro models feature a 4-mode LCD speed counter for keeping track of your strength and endurance gains. Monitoring your spin speeds will also help you to measure your strengthening progress and endurance gains. What’s more, the Powerball speed counter records and saves your highest spin speeds so that you can constantly improve on your results and compete against friends for the top score.
ARE BATTERIES REQUIRED TO OPERATE THESE PRODUCTS?No batteries are required to operate these products. Powerball is powered solely by the rotation of your wrist. The LCD speed counter on the other hand, is powered by the magnetic inertia generated by the spinning rotor.
