Product Description

Only the patented Gripmaster isolates and strengthens each finger individually for superior hand, wrist and forearm control. Any golfer will benefit greatly by using Gripmaster. Whether you’re hoping to improve distance off the tee or improve accuracy in the fairway, controlling the golf club is essential. Recommended by Golf Digest and Golf Magazine!

Isolating each finger so it can be exercised individually, the patented Gripmaster strengthens hands, wrist, and forearm with spring-loaded piston technology while ensuring the palm doesn't slip from a molded grip. This model offers medium tension (seven pounds per finger) and is recommended for men. Sturdy and highly durable, the Gripmaster easily fits in pocket or purse, enabling hand exercise anytime, anywhere.

A few daily workouts with the Gripmaster Pro and you'll enjoy better control of a baseball/softball bat, tennis racquet, or golf club, with each finger working in seamless unity with the others. You'll also find a ton of other uses for the Gripmaster Pro, including playing guitar or violin, rock climbing, bowling, target shooting, martial arts, yoga, or even relieving stress while clicking a mouse or gaming for hours on end.

Exercising with the Gripmaster is the most efficient and effective way to maintain the health and conditioning of the hand. It's the ideal way to maintain the suppleness and flexibility of the hand to prevent injury. Each finger of the hand is powered by a completely separate system of muscles and tendons located in the hand, wrist, and forearm. The ability to control the ball or control the bat, racquet, or club all starts with the hands. Your hand is really five separate systems which work in seamless unity. The only way to develop superior strength, endurance, and coordination in your hands is to challenge and develop each finger individually. Once you exercise with Gripmaster you'll notice a difference almost immediately.

  • Strengthen weaker fingers for superior hitting, throwing, and fielding
  • 7 pounds of tension per finger
  • Challenges each finger individually using patented spring-loaded finger piston technology
  • Greatly improves hand, wrist, and forearm strength
  • Includes complete exercise program

    DO NOT BUY THE GRIP MASTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!! When i opened it, Iraqi infidels broke into my house and killed my family...more info
  • Great purchase
    This product was just as presented and it works as described. I am happy with the service and it arrived quickly. What more could I ask for?...more info
  • Just the right size it turns out
    I don't think I'm much weaker or stronger than the average woman, whatever that is. I'm able to push down the first one (index) easily, middle finger fairly ok, third finger only by shifting my hand and kinda involving other fingers and not all the way, and the pinkie finger not much at all. That's my right hand and I'm right handed. So it's a good level for me to start my hand strength building with. I'm starting to lift weights and already see that my hand strength is an issue, and I'm getting back to guitar after over 20 years away from it which is just pitiful frankly, so I thought something to mindlessly work with while reading or something might be useful. This little thing is pretty cool and I think it'll work well. When I can do my little finger easily on this I'll upgrade to the next difficulty level....more info
  • Good Hand Exerciser
    Well made and appears to be sturdy.I have only used the exerciser for a week but it seems to be all it claims and for the price it is a good buy.My little finger is weak and I have a bit of trouble moving that button but a weaker unit would be too light for good results with the rest of my hand....more info
  • uncomfortable
    I just wanted a way to improve my grip however this device is not it. It gives a decent amount of resistance i guess however my hand starts to hurt before it gets tired the action on it is not very smooth. I don't really understand how it has so many postive reviews i wouldnt buy another one....more info
  • Works great
    This hand/finger excersiser works every finger and thumb individually. It is a great way to strengthin your hands...more info
  • Comfortable and fun
    It's a great product, I love the grip and it does it's job well. Is very compact can take it anywhere. I love using it at work....more info
  • very good product
    i am a saxophonist and aspiring acoustic bassist. i bought this gripmaster to strengthen my fingers for the bass. it has been very helpful in that respect. i have also found that it has evened out fingering for the saxophone as well.
    i bought one for my son, a pianist and my daughter, a violinist. they both use it regularly and have found it helpful.
    i carry it around with me and use it while driving, on the treadmill and occasionally while lecturing. i find it to be a good stress reliever.
    i use the 9#, my daughter the 5# and my son has the 7#. i am thinking of going to the 11# resistance.
    you should buy one.
    peace...more info
  • Great product
    I use the red and black versions. Got the blue for the wife or kids to try.
    Pay attention to the recommendations. 5lb.(blue) to 7 lb. (red) is a big difference...same with 2 lbs. more for the black.
    Very worthwhile to have a few of these around to grab and use while on the PC or watching TV....more info
  • Good Product
    I have the medium tension one. Planning to upgrade to heavy tension one. Too addictive....more info
  • Go for the burn!!
    I gotta admit like a lot of people it's hard to decide what you need in terms of strength.

    I'm 35 and pretty good health, strength and have worked out in the past. I was looking for something to improve my grip, as in the past after a certain point you grip fails where your other muscles.

    I got myself a medium strength, and to be honest I thought it was too weak. However after about 20 reps. you soon start to feel it.

    The other I bought an extra light for my father in law, he's 73 years old and wants again to improve strength. He also is suffering a little from arthritis in one hand. This helps a lot as he can work individual fingers.

    Myself I've found that my little finger is weak, and due to the design I can totally work that weakness.

    What I think is great now, I can work my hands one by one; then switch to a lighter strength so I can work to failure. A technique you can use in weight training to build gains once you plateaued.

    I will for certain in the future by a heavier weight, but only once I'm having to work too long....and also that weak little finger gets better.

    p.s. this is a failure of the all in one grips, that you can't target one finger.

    A great product all round! ...more info
  • GripMaster Medium (Red)
    I have nerve damage that has caused weakness in my left hand. I have used the (red) 7 lb Gripmaster for two weeks and can notice a definite improvement in strength. The 7 lb Gripmaster is too hard for my left hand. I have ordered the two lighter duty Gripmasters so that I can work into the heavier duty units. I have no problem with my right hand and the 7 lb Gripmaster is just about right. I have 64 year old well broken in hands. Younger hands might need heavier duty units. The manufacturer recommends lighter tension and high reps. ...more info
  • Good but miss leading title
    This product is great for the price. It's small, portable, and simple to use. It would have been nicer if there was a coating of rubber on the finger pieces for comfort. Be careful on the difficulty level though. I'm pretty fit so I figured Heavy tension would work well but it isn't very difficult. I know this may have just been my case but when I read "Heavy Tension" I expected a challenge. Nice product though....more info
  • Buy it from Guitar Center Instead.
    The black(Grey) padded hand portion is anemic on this model If you buy the Gripmaster from Guitar Center theirs is much more padded and easier to grip comfortably....more info
  • Received what I expected
    This is a very good quality product. Doesn't seem to break and will last a long time. It is very useful to build finger muscles and will prove to be valuable to people interested in activities that rely on that. Highly recommended....more info
  • Cool!
    As soon as I put it in my hand the first time and started squeezing it, I loved this little thing, it feels GREAT in my hand, very ergonomic design, and the springs are nice and strong too (even though it's the lightest model!). I would recommend this model the highest over the next three for somebody who is just beginning to strengthen their hands, it says right in the packaging that, "Hand specialists recommend lower tension and more repetitions than higher tension..." etc. The springs aren't quite strong enough for my index and middle fingers, but are perfectly strong for my ring finger and pinky, which are the fingers I'm trying to work out the most (just on my left hand, for playing bass guitar). The blue 5 pound exerciser would probably be too much for my pinky and ring finger, and I would probably end up over-doing things and get tendonitis again in my left hand, so follow what they say, lower tension and more reps! It works great as a stress reliever, or something to mess around with, so more reps over a long period of time would be better anyways!...more info
  • Exactly what you would expect
    There is not much to say here, this isn't a very complicated product. It works as intended... and it shows no signs of breaking in any way. It is definitely a medium-strong tension, and I'm sure one level weaker or stronger will suit different people with different needs. Good buy (I'm using my my guitar fingers), speedy delivery, all's well....more info
    First off, i bought this to help with my guitar playing. I bought the black one. its a great product, i just wish i'd have gone with the 5 or the 7. i didnt realize how stiff 9 pounds would be on one finger at a time lol. so i'd recommend buying one of these, just at a lower tension, like 5 or even 7...more info
  • Gripmaster extremely worthwhile for Tennis Elbow

  • Great item. Stick to it & it works!
    I noticed weakness in my hands at the gun range. I was told by my gun instructor to purchase hand exercisers to help build the strength in my hands. I purchased this item and it has helped immensely. Great and inexpensive way to accomplished my goals....more info
  • Very Effective for Strengthening Hands and Fingers
    I ordered this about a month ago to strengthen my fingers for guitar playing and have used it constantly every day to every other day. Since then, I've seen a very noticable change.

    I decided to get the heavy tension model as I haven't used these before but figured that I wouldn't have to keep upgrading if I needed to. I did wonder at first though, if it was too heavy. It was tough alright and I felt pretty sore after the first day. I used it for at least a couple hours and therefore don't recommend doing so because of this. I suggest slowly working up at shorter time periods. You can really feel it working your fingers, hands and forearms though which only confirms that it does what it sets out to do. I really wanted this for my ring and pinky fingers on my fret hand for guitar playing and am very satisfied with the results thus far. I'm getting faster, more accurate and my fingers are more responsive overall. I also notice increased hand strength and definition in my forarms which is a nice plus.

    The GRIPMASTER is very well constructed. It's tough, rugged and very solid overall. The rubber grip pad is comfortable and has a nice contour to fit snugly between your thumb and index finger on either hand. The plastic finger tabs are indented and textured for grip and ease if use. Overall, a very well built product.

    The GRIPMASTER has got to be about the easiest exercise you'll ever do. It's easy to pick up and use when watching t.v. or when on the computer. It's also small and compact enough to take anywhere you may want to use it. There is an excercise chart included which is helpful or you can feel free to make your own up as you go. It's a really good excercise with very minimal effort.

    There are many purposes for wanting a device like this. I wanted it for my fingers for playing and am very satisfied so far with the results. It's getting easier to use and it's done everything I could've wanted it to and more. Whether your looking to for a good finger, hand or forearm workout, the GRIPMASTER is a great device that is sure to provide you with the results your looking for. Recommended.

  • Great Product
    I received the red medium tension for Christmas. At first, my left hand had trouble with it when isolating my last two fingers. But after about four weeks of sporadic usage, it was relatively easy. So I graduated to the Heavy tension and am almost ready to move up to the extra heavy.

    Great product. I feel that this has really helped me with my back workout, where my grip was limiting the effectiveness. Plus the extra hand strength comes in handy in everyday life....more info
  • My boyfriend likes it.
    I bought this for my boyfriend, who is trying to learn to play the banjo. He says it works great. It provides a good amount of resistance, but not too much....more info
  • Good Little Product
    I'm not exactly sure what I was expecting when I ordered this, but I got something that really works. After only a few weeks of usage I can definitely tell a difference in my hand strength. At first is was a little difficult to do the different "workouts" but now they are all really easy to do and complete.

    Also, the pictures don't really do the size of this thing justice. Its pretty small and can be easily placed in your pocket to take places with you for "workouts" on the go....more info
  • Good Stuff
    I got the 7 pound (red) and 9 pound (black) gripmasters. They are good quality for the price, and they don't squeek, though, my red one has begun to click slightly. They are pretty useful grippers for finger strength, though I probably should have purchased a 11 pound or more model. I use these for general finger strength, and, as an artist, I find them useful for exercising a steady hand. ...more info
  • Want to know which strength of Gripmaster to buy?
    You need to consider gender, age, present condition of your hands, work history, etc., but the biggest factor is WHY you want stronger hands and therefore HOW you're going to use the Gripmaster.

    For example, if you want to develop a stronger tennis grip, you're going to be squeezing the Gripmaster with your whole hand, which is relatively easier to do. You might tend toward buying a stronger model to start.

    But if you want to develop a stronger left hand for playing the double bass (upright bass) using classical or jazz fingering, you're going to be squeezing the Gripmaster with the very tips of your fingers, which is relatively MUCH harder to do. You might tend toward buying a weaker model to start. Eventually you will be pinching it with your finger tips against the very pad of your thumb, instead of the crook of your hand, which is REALLY harder to do.

    For beginning upright-type bass, I started with the blue (light) version. I could crush it much too easily with my whole hand, but definitely NOT by pinching it with my fingertips against the pad of my thumb. For that exercise, I could have started with the yellow (extra light) version. Huge difference in how you're going to use it.

    I also bought the Rough Rider callus builders that snap on to the NON-"Pro" versions only. These things are brutal, but they really work. You may want to start working on calluses without the Rough Riders though, if you don't have any calluses at all. The Rough Riders are easily moveable from one version to another, as long as its a NON-"Pro" version.

    I am seeing a big difference in my finger strength, calluses, and--therefore--how much time I can practice bass at once. Week to week, my strength gains are very noticeable simply because I work with this thing for a minute many times each day. You can use a Gripmaster without even taking it out of your jacket pocket....more info
  • Gimmick, buy the toughest tension you can and it probably still won't be tough enough.
    Honestly. I just let 3 common females close the "HEAVY TENSION" and they did it easy, my 40+ year old mom can close it multiple times no problem and she is about below average strength, IT IS WAY TOO EASY, BUY THE TOUGHEST ONE FIRST IF YOU WANT ONE. I did have a long review wrote but its deleted since i got 3 non-exercising people, that is a girl and 2 old women to close it easily multiple times. Also its made of "TOO MUCH PLASTIC", although i am surprised that it did not fall apart, still i think it would be good for building endurance, so its a 6 out of 10, they tried, and i think they pretty much failed. I think "Captains of Crush" would be better for brute force strength, but i have not tried one yet....more info
  • Good product
    Beats the hell out of the hand strengtheners that you squeeze the handle and that's all. I am a guitarist and have used these for years to help sustain endurance. I guess there isn't that much else to say. It is what it is....more info
  • Gets the job done
    It's an ok hand exerciser. I bought it primarily to help with my guitar playing. It didnt make me a guitar god in 2 days but it did help me control my fingers a little bit more. I also use it if im headed somewhere and I need a quick warm-up before getting to a guitar. If you're a musican and you want to improve your finger strength, then this could help you. But don't expect to be a virtuoso over night.

    My second reason for the purchase was to help with my hand writting. I didn't see any improvement.

    But before you even give one squeeze, I suggest you READ THE MANUAL. And look at the grip master website for proper instructions. I keep hearing about people who say they royaly screwed up their wrist from this thing. When ever people ask to see it for a sec, they wrap their whole hand around it and squeeze it fast every second. This is not the proper way to handle this thing. You're not getting any work from it. You'd just be wasting your time.

  • WARNING! Two different handles: 1 good, 1 bad.
    A friend has the blue (light tension) with the larger, more ergonomic handle. I bought the red one from Isokinetics (best price with shipping). Mine showed up with a different handle. It's smaller and cheaper looking, and is very uncomfortable. So be warned, there are two products with identical names, but a VERY different feel in the hand.

    During initial use, it's obvious the Gripmaster hand strengthener will perform as advertised. The two-layer system allows the unit to rotate when working on the index and pinkie fingers. This is a good design to minimize blisters from sliding, as on similar straight up-down devices.

    The blue is light and good for busy fingers. But I was looking for finger and forearm strength, and the red still seemed light. They recommend the red (medium tension) for the "average man" and doing many repititions over fewer reps with the black (heavy tension).

    I will definitely buy the black Gripmaster, as soon as I can find a seller who can assure me I'll receive the larger, more ergonomic palm rest. The comfort makes a huge difference in how long you can exercise your hand. The right model is worth the price, but the smaller one is not. It hurts to use, so it probably won't get used as much, and therefore won't be helpful.

    Note: I called Isokinetics and they're accepting the return. But they couldn't assure me, if I returned for correction, that I'd receive the right handle.

  • Great Product
    This exerciser is very nice. My only complaint (and it is a small one) is that the palm side pad is much smaller on this version than the pad on the older version. While the smaller pad is not as comfortable, the product is still a winner and the best finger workout I have ever tried....more info
  • Good warm-up for musicians
    I've had one of these for years and they're pretty dang good. I do doubt the need for the more extreme tensions, at least for guitarists. I have a medium one, but the tension seemed way too much, and I was afraid I would injure myself. I eventually got the yellow extra-lite one and I use it a lot....more info
  • great little product
    I'm an athletic female that wanted to improve finger strength. I got the blue model and when I got it I thought it was too light for me. After a short series of reps on my right hand, though, I realized it is the perfect resistance for me for more reps. My left hand struggles a bit more, but the blue isn't too much for it--I just can't do nearly as many reps. Great little product that comes with easy to follow directions on a large variety of exercises targeting certain muscle groups in the wrist and hand. Great for improving everything from trigger pulls to guitar playing to handshakes....more info
  • Great hand exerciser! Great for guitarists!

  • Getting a Grip
    I'm a competition air pistol shooter and this product is perfect. I need strong fingers for trigger control, controlling the pistol and holding it steady. Strong wrist and forearm muscles also are critical. The 5 pound gripmaster is perfect. Not too heavy to work with all the time. I carry it around and work with it every day. I love it and recommend it highly....more info
  • Great starter to hand strength
    This is a great starter for hand strength. You can graduate to a heaver unit as strenght builds....more info
  • Useful product
    If used properly, it can increase the speed and precision. I play the tenor saxophone, and i decided to give this product a try. Well, it ended up being a good deal, after a while of using it, it became a little easy, so i just put one fingertip on the ends of two of the finger pads to double the strength required. After using it for a while, i think my speed with precision has increased a fair amount. I found it fairly useful, and you can use it whenever you're not using your hands....more info
    Gripmaster is the best thing to happen ever. I can now crush small children and kittens in the palm of my hand. Gripmaster has changed my life. When I'm stressed--Gripmaster. When I'm happy--Gripmaster. When I'm sad--Gripmaster. When I'm eating--Gripmaster. When I'm bleeding--Gripmaster.

    Try and pry it out of my super-muscular hands, punk. ...more info

  • Black 9lb gripper very good - however nice to have a stronger version too
    I purchased the black 9lb grip strengthener because I don't do the manual labor I once did and want to keep up my strength. Much to my amazement the 9lb units are quite easy and wish there were another level higher in poundage.

    These units allow for each finger to be worked individually which is a vast improvement over other types of grip strengtheners I've looked at in my opinion and well worth the price.

    Although I can sit watching the news and work one hand the entire time without tiring, the units do provide a good workout for the fingers and forearms. I've found moving the palm bad out to the first knuckle of the thumb adds more difficulty and works different muscles as well.

    I am very pleased with the product and am ordering a second unit....more info
  • Very nice product!
    We've purchased other hand exercise products in the past, but this one exercises each finger independantly. My wife uses it to strengthen her fingers, and the size and strength of the exerciser is just right for her....more info

  • Excellent.
    I have always had weak grip, (at least compared to my brothers), so I figured I would try out this kind of product. This being my first, I went what I thought was a little light, with 7 lbs. I used it all day when i got it, and my grip has already improved, my pinky, which could barely compress the button, can do it with ease, and, everything seems to be easier with slightly improved grip, from knitting, to guitar playing, and even riding my bike.

    I already have to go up to 9 lbs....more info
  • Easily worth the price
    I also have the older style black model (9lb.) that has a larger and rounder palm pad. I prefer the old style, especially with the firmest springs, but the new style is alright. These are great to have on my desktop to use while I'm reading something on the screen. Pay attention to the spring weight of the different colors and use the manufacturer's suggestions. I use black and red....more info
