Reviews of SPRI Dual Grip Xerball / Medicine Balls
Review 1: Great medicine ball with grips.
I really like medicine ball workouts. I, however, have moderate wrist pain, so I started using medicine balls with grips, since it seems to be easier on my wrist and hand muscles. I got a SPRI 8-lb medicine ball on clearance at Dick’s. I liked it so much that I bought a 14-lb SPRI dual grip xerball from Amazon.
-I’ve read reviews of some other medicine balls where people said they’re weighted with sand and that the sand shifts in the ball. I have no idea what the SPRI xerball is weighted with, but there’s no shifting of weight.
-Big handles. First, let me say that I don’t have big hands for a man. But, I can say with confidence that SPRI leaves enough room for people with big paws.
-The SPRI xerball I got from Amazon was fully inflated and holds air well.
-I read reviews of other medicine balls where people said they smell bad. Can’t say I’ve ever had that problem with any of my medicine balls.
-My 8-lb SPRI xerball will not inflate. Not sure why. Then again, this hasn’t really impacted it’s utility as a medicine ball in my workouts (since I don’t bounce the ball and since medicine balls with grips probably shouldn’t be bounced anyway), but it’s still a flaw.
Overall, I’m very happy with my SPRI xerballs. I’d like to get a 20-lb xerball as well. Oh, I think I read somewhere (maybe on the box) that you can do Kettle Bell stuff with this ball. I’d probably disagree with that. Even though there’s handles and the handles are big, if you swing the ball behind your hand and hold it like a kettle bell, it will be uncomfortable for your hand. But, if you are looking for a quality medicine ball with grips, I think SPRI is a great choice.
Review 2: Brilliant Product – 5 Stars!
A terrific addition to a home gym.
First, people complain about the smell. Yes, there is an initial odor (rubber); however, it dissipated quickly.
14 lb was the perfect starter weight for me. Work out regularly and while not a gym rat, put in an hour of exercise 3-5 days a week of cardio and strength training.
The instructional DVD and exercises that come with this ball are terrific. In the past month there is definition in my abs that was not there before – so there is no doubt that this ball and it’s suggested techniques do indeed work. Flexibility has also increased as has my range of motion.
Simply put. This is a great product. Worth the money and proof that you don’t have to spend $$$’s to achieve solid results.
Review 3: Excellent, well made piece of equipment.
This is a really nice piece of excercise equipment. I needed it to continue my recovery from a back surgery, and it is similar but better than the one I was using at the physical therapy center. The handles make it very easy to hold in whatever orientation I need for my excercises, It cost more than others I lookeda t, but worth it in my opinion, I expect it will last my lifetime.
