After a couple of workouts, I did a short review video on it, which I have posted here.
For me, the Bison-1M will be most used for high volume work, deloading, and working on flushing the wrist and forearms with blood. In the workouts I have done so far, it has shown me it is very effective in this sense.
Will the Bison-1m help you close a big Gripper or Pinch the World Record? Probably not, but as far as a sporting application like baseball or tennis, yes I think it can be useful.
I have read speculation that the Bison 1M would break if used by a serious Gripster. I do not see how someone could break one of these things unless they either tried to do so on purpose or if they unscrewed the shell too far and somehow ended up bending it or ruining the threading inside the body. The device is actually pretty heavy and seems to be made out of some pretty good quality metal.
I will also say that the resistance on this thing goes really high. For some movement patterns, the resistance can actually be TOO HIGH. However, changing between resistance levels is pretty easy and only involves rotating the body of the device.
After reviewing the Bison 1M, I am reminded of that quote by Buddy Morris, “EVERYTHING works.”
Especially in the case of the Bison 1M, I think you have to approach things with an open mind. I am glad I did that with this item, and I hope you do the same if you ever have the chance to try one out.
I want to continue working with the Bison 1M, and report back again later on. It practically takes up no room at all to store it and I can work it into my forearm training circuits with ease.
