Okay, over the past sveral months I have been using stress and tennis balls to build strength in my wrists but I was wondering if I would be better of with some specialist equipment?

Something like this:

Anyone had any experience with these sort of things? Any good? Or is it worth the money or should I just stick with stress balls?

Fear Factory 's Dino Cazares used to use wrist weights while practising his alternate picking.

The gripmaster is VERY good for individual finger strength and general dexterity. I would recommend getting one. I've noticed my technical ability getting better faster after using it on a regular basis. Just sit with it when you're watching TV or something. It can be quite tough to begin with, but after a week or so you can feel your fingers are stronger, which can only be a good thing.
A recent study shows that 8% of teenagers listen to nothing but music with guitars in it. Put this in your sig if you're one of the 92% who isn't a closed-minded moron.

1) no there not. you search around ... i pay 200$ year. best deal ever

2) ...
Wrist curles ... & reverse wrist curls
Grip exersises.

more importanlty, any exerise in the gym where you hold a weight device will imporve your grip strength, thus imporving finger strength.

& you can take a 2 1/2 pound weight, put a figer through the hole, and curl ... do it on each figner
