"Power" "Balance"

If you have a couple of thousand pesos (or about $30), and believe in doing anything to gain a competitive edge, chances are you've bought yourself a bracelet made by Power Balance.

It is, however, a rather dumb investment considering the company itself admits that there is no science behind their products.

Is that money down the drain? Not necessarily. As mentioned in the article, it could provide something of a "placebo effect"; when the user believes that his/her performance will improve by using the bracelet, then it would probably help, albeit simply on a psychological scale. In my opinion though, it is a rather pricey piece of motivational accessory. I'd stick with my "lucky baller" :P



  1. I've heard of this! I still think it's crap. :D

  2. I think it's a useless piece of luxury accessory :P
