Home Made Softball Grip Tool


Recommended Posts

Saw a post on another forum of someone who put a fish eye hook into softballs and used them for pullups, looked pretty intense so decided to try it myself and it turned out to be a great open hand strength tool. Was just wondering if anyone else here has tried that and if so how many pullups could you do? I only made them yesterday and did only a few to make sure they were strong enough to not rip out.

We have made them for years have metal ones as well with lat pull down bars, and bolt on rack grip balls with ball ends too. I would caution you the balls of different quality have different core materials.In some cases the screw eye can and does pull out!RS

I made one a while back. I only have one so I don't do pullups with it but hook it to mt loading pin and so lifts with it.

Ryan Pitts @ Strongergrip sells the Grip Balls for $16.99, not a bad price and you don't have to worry about the screw eye pulling out.

I have been looking for them and am stuck between the sizes to order. As far as pullups for an average size hand, what are people using?
