This my personal opinion I've put with my experience and knowledge in climbing. Take it as you wish. I'd also like to know what you think. Its not really for training strength. the only finger it could possibly help strengthen is my pinky 'cause i never use it. It's main function is injury prevention and recovery. To activate the muscles and tendons used in climbing more often so that a once a week Saturday or Wednesday night session doesn't come as such a shock for your tendons. That being said, this would only be the case if you were someone who didn't climb very often. If you're someone who climbs quite often, multiple days one even, GripMaster would be used more as a recovery tool. To flush forearms of unwanted lactic acid right after a session so that soreness and lack squeeze is lessoned (less effective than a proper cool-down. However, due to location an effective cool-down is not always possible, and thus we have GripMaster). It's best use is warm-up. If you're outside and unable to do a nice easy warm up traverse use GripMaster for 5 Min on each hand and the effects will be very similar. YOou still need to do a proper warm up! But GripMaster can help you along. 2/5 Because its marketed for what its worst at.
