Got this as a freebie from a retailer. And I'm glad for that. This is one of those things that looks (and smells) like some kind of industrial byproduct, but Metolius slapped their name on it and sells it for $5. It's okay for general forearm/hand conditioning, but it's extremely gimmicky, non-climbing-specific, and overpriced even at $5. I think Metolius cheapens their good name by selling this. However, it is a nice stress reliever in the office, much better than a spring grip, Gripmaster, or racquetball. I also like it more than the Powerball (gyro ball) due to simplicity.
