IMTug


#1

Does anybody have one of the IMTug grippers from Ironmind?

They're pretty cheap and look like they could be used for training individual fingers. They seem perfect for improving finger strength for playing guitar.

Anybody have an experience with them?


#2

Just played with one this weekend. I would say it's a bit more than I would care to spend to learn to play the guitar. when I learned guitar I just played and the strength came. Worst case scenario, do some plate pinches or get a capatain of crush gripper.
The Tug itself would make a better tool for thumb strength in my opinion.

I'm sure others will disagree. My friend who owned the Tug is a #3 closer and seemed to think it was a great tool to just close like a gripper. So maybe I'm just too cheap.
