Thumbs up New Wii Product

http://www.riiflex.com/ It looks pretty cool. It's not anything like those sandbag weights that someone made a while back. I'll probably preorder one of these things to go with my Wii Fit exercises. What do you guys think about this?

lol, also increases the deadliness when you eventually hit someone with your Wiimotes while swinging them around and causes MASSIVE DAMAGE when you throw it at your TV

XD

As long as you wear the wrist strap then that will not happen because the weight attaches to the Wii Remote. So make sure you people wear the wrist strap! As for randomly swinging it around and hitting someone....I guess you just have to be careful...And use common sense. Also, riiflex would more likely be used for Wii Fit or something similar...Not tennis or baseball. Of course you could use it for that if you wanted to though. I am proud to say I have not yet hit anybody with the Wii Remote.

Are you sure that wrist strap is 5+ pound test? 'sides who actually wears the wrist strap, safety is for losers.

lol, I don't wear the wrist straps but it's funny how Nintendo keeps coming out with stronger and thicker ones every so often XD

Yeah, I like how when the Wii remote is shown in-game like telling you to move it a certain way, it shows it with the condom on. XD

I've never held a Wiimote with that on, but I imagine it to feel VERY weird... I prefer my Wiimotes strapless and bare.

I think I've used a Wiimote with it on once on somebody else's Wii. Some people complain that the remote is too big, and this just makes it worse (though the size is fine for me).

I always use that rubber covering on my Wii Remotes. I always use the wrist strap also. I just don't want to buy a new remote lol.

There's more chance of you breaking everything else than the Wiimote itself. Nintendo makes those things to be abused and punished fiercely. Unless there's a manufacturing defect, your Wiimote should live longer than you will.

Yes, I once read somewhere that only 3 things will survive the apocalypse, cockroaches, Twinkies, and the Wiimote.

Not nice, keep the nasty comments to thyself.

My answer:

I don't use the strap (don't even own the rubber thingy) because I'm not an idiot, and I wont let the wii mote fly out of my hand.

This is sig-quotable material right here!

I almost feel compelled to nominate this as "post of the year".

Actually all Nintendo products will survive the apocalypse because they're all made out of Nintendium.

@ scavangerman34: Care to expand on that by telling us why you think it's stupid?
