If you can do a 100 in a row of anything, you need to up the tension. I honestly haven't found a ball gripper that had enough tension, so I use tortion grippers. The Captains of Crush are supposed to be the best, but I found a set at Sports Authority that work pretty well.

You can generally open the packages at the sports stores and try them out, as the packages are re-sealable. If you can do more than 20 in a row on one hand the first time you try it, I'd look for something stronger, as you'll be bored with them before too long.

Wrestling itself is the best way to increase grip strength though.

Riding a motorcycle works pretty good also!

Right, go for something tough and work your way into it. If your training as well, your hands should adjust over time. If you're trying to do it on the cheap, you might want to ask around your wrestling team and see if anyone has an old pair of grippers that aren't doing them any good.
