Bicep Blaster

Anyone remember the bicep blaster? Not sure if they are still around in gyms any more.

Someone asked me about this piece of equipment, so I thought I would start a thread and see if anyone uses it, and what they think about it.

I used it back in the day, but remember little about it.

There is one at my gym but I've never used it. All the guys that do use it have small arms, so read into that whatever you will

Used it but that was long ago when I had just started gym ... almost 10 years ... Now a days it is almost gone. Not seen it in last 5-6 years ...

I remember those. I used one in high school. I think I saw one at the gym not to long ago. So yeah, they're still around.
Inherently I don't think there is a problem with them. The concept is no different than a spider curl, preacher curl, or standing with a back against a wall and curling.
However, IMO a curl is a curl is a curl and I think people waste too much time, effort and brain power thinking about curls and what variant to use when.
