There are many hand grippers in the market. I would like to know if there is any benefit for using the following Ivanko Super Gripper in comparison to other hand grippers: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M-e_kEmvfb4&feature=youtu.be&t=28 Are there also disadvantages for using it?

  • Good quality hand grippers tend to be expensive in general, so adjustable grippers are nice for making incremental progress on a budget.
  • Adjustable grippers max out ~80-90lbs, which isn't much for anyone with decent forearm strength, while these go much higher.
  • The longer frame makes the grip angle on these more natural, as opposed to the 'triangle-grip' that many other grippers offer. You can focus a tad more on just exerting force, and less on having the right form.
  • Separate moving parts mean it can be maintained/replaced if it gets worn out. Spring characteristics in grippers do change with use.


  • It's larger than many other grippers on the market. Grippers are one of the few travel-friendly pieces of exercise equipment.
  • Separate moving parts mean something can break.
  • Increasing possibility of causing sonic booms any time you close your hand.
