that's what i've always wondered, same motion, except with more weight.
so why not just use a speed bag with wrist weights?

This is more portable. It seems to set fixed distances for your arms too, not sure how much of a benefit that is, but if provides a different workout and a different exercise for the person training (even if it is only subtle).

Might be a good work out but i can't see that it's much like a speed bag other than general hand motion..

A lot of using the speed bag (well) is timing and coordination which you don't really get with this and you can't mix up hands and movement in the same way.

One review said that its great for waiting in lobby's between games in Call of Duty. Sounds perfect for me.

Lot's of stuff on-line about this product/s, most good, some seemingly self serving and placed by the company. I have a feeling the green version's not as well built as the chrome metal and warranty/support is a bit spotty at best across the product line up. That said, if we get a year or two of good workouts in the comfort of our own home before it falls apart--perhaps it's worth the gamble.

FYI--I got the 'Burn Machine' chat line and this is what transpired....

Jason: Welcome to The Burn Machine! My name is Jason, may I help you find what you are looking for?
How may I help you?
Guest: It appears your (green and perhaps others) 'Burn Machine only has a 90 day warranty and then also includes buyer pay shipping PLUS a $25 'restocking' charge? Is that correct, please?
Jason: Good question! Please do allow me to verify on your concern. While on it, may I please have your name to properly address you?
Guest: Yes thanks--Robert here
Jason: A pleasure to meet you, Robert! By the way, where did you get the information on the 90 day warranty?
Guest: from your website:
"Return must be postmarked within 90 days of original purchase date. Units MUST BE RECEIVED WITH ALL ORIGINAL PACKAGING MATERIALS, ACCESSORIES AND RECEIPT OF SALE. A $25 restocking fee will be deducted from the refunded amount."

Elsewhere, there's some ambiguous writing about a 'limited lifetime' warranty. I don't like to have to photo copy reciepts and retain packagaing for everything I buy that has a 90 day OR a 'limited lifetime warranty'--your info seems to conflict on-line.

Jason: I have that noted. This is what I will do for you, to insure we can meet your needs let me do this, I would like to get our Manager involved since he can talk to you about the price or discounts and warranty, and give you all the information you require, and make sure we can meet your requirements along with shipping prices, we certainly would love to earn your business. Would that be ok with you?

Guest: I have already placed an order a few moments ago, based on a VERY large website and didn't want to post negative info internationally as feedback. I know I can cancel my order if necessary.
thanks

Jason: You are welcome! Is there anything else I may assist you with?
Guest: where's the manager?
where's the answer about your warranty please?
restocking fees, etc...
Jason: Okay Robert. Our manager will contact you the soonest time as possible most probably on business hours. May I please have your phone number for any immediate questions?
Guest: I didn't even give you an e mail--how was a manager supposed to contact me?
I'd rather not give out my phone #
Jason: My apologies. May I please have your best email address to send you the necessary details?
Guest: XXXXXXX@yahoo.com
Jason: Thank you very much. Before we wrap up, please spell your last name so we may properly address you?
Guest: Roberts
Jason: Thank you very much for all the information you shared with us. I'll be forwarding this chat to my Manager as soon as we are finished and rest assured that we'll be in touch. Would there be anything else I may help you with?

Unless you're pretty jacked (lets say bench 2X your body weight), just get the 8lb one. It's hard to do for 2 minutes straight, and is a good way to wrap up a workout.

Worth it IMO.
