I think it's helped my grip, but not as much as stuff like fat grip farmers walks but the grippers definatly help. Brand wise I would say go with Captain of Crush (COC) or Heavy Grip. You can usually get sets of the Heavy grip ones on Ebay for a decent price. I would say with a 150lb and a 200lb if you grip strength is about average.
Also it would be a good idea to buy one of those little stress balls to use for some active recovery and warm up along with the grippers. That way you don't get tard-hards an drop stuff all day.
I was thinking about filling an 8" peice of 2" outside diameter pipe with old ball bearings and lead and then using that for timed holds since it would be small enough to keep in my desk but heavy enough to work but then I realized that it would look like I'm bringing a pipe bomb to work. So I might see if I can find a used heavy dumbell on craigslist and cut the heads off and hold them for time.
