    No point in anything to hold you up, as you won't learn how to balance if you use something. Just set them up in a doorway, hold the door frame and go. I personally like them, but what's wrong with your turbo?

    Rollers definitely feel more realistic. The boredom's pretty much as bad though, once you get used to the rollers, as staying up is no problem and you can let your mind wander, up to a point. You'd probably be better off trying some before you sell the turbo, because it might be that you end up hating them just as much.

    PM me if you are thinking of selling the Turbo. I have rollers which I like but might be interested in taking the Turbo off your hands!
