I purchased the Gemini because it’s advertised as being much better than the 2-lax-ball peanut.
However, in most of Kelly’s episodes or daily RX videos, he uses the peanut or 2-balls in that little mesh bag of his.
Which leaves me questioning – is it safe to use the Gemini as a replacement for what he’s using in the video? Is it less effective using the Gemini for the particular scenario in the video?
Yes, it is safe to use the Gemini as a replacement for the 2 lax balls taped together.
It is much more effective in some areas.
The 2 YTU balls in the mesh bags are balls that are softer than a lax ball.
For some areas a lacrosse ball may be too hard.
When the videos are shot there may not always be a gemini available to use.
There are episodes where the gemini is used.
Different tools work differently for different people.
In certain areas one tool can be more effective than others.
Some will come down to what the person experiences the best results with.
