Scoop Competition: Win A Powerball!

Scoop Competition: Win A NSD Power®ball!

Scoop HQ's NSD Power®ball in motion:
Scoop's Power®ball has contributed towards considerable pre Parliamentary Questions entertainment over the past month and strengthened the wrists of Scoop press release publishers in the process.

No bigger than a tennis ball, NSD Power®ball is a unique upper body exerciser, developed in the USA. Powerball harnesses gyro energy and, at over 15,000 rotations a minute, can generate as much as 18kgs of power. Power that exercises your arms, shoulders, fingers and grip without weights, springs or batteries. At the pace you choose.

See for more information.

Scoop has 3 NSD Power®balls to give away. Two of them of the high tech variety that allow you to hold office competitions over who can make it go the fastest.

To enter, send you answers to the following questions to with "Powerball Competition" in the subject line. Winners will be chosen based on how impressed Scoop is with your wit and good taste. Winning answers will be published. Judges decision is final. Correspondence will be entered into if we are sufficiently motivated and we have sufficient remaining strength in our wrists.

1. What's the coolest thing about a Power®ball?

2. What will you call your Power®ball and why?

3. Why do you want to exercise your arms so bad anyway?
