Smart Hockey Stick Handling Ball

Details

For years European and Soviet players have used wooden stickhandling balls before games and for off-ice skills training to develop lightening quick, soft hands. With advances in space age materials smart|hockey patented a stickhandling and shooting ball which even more closely replicates an ice hockey puck's weight, bounce co-efficient, slide co-efficient and height at which the puck contacts the stick. The patented, two-piece dynamic core technology feels so much like an ice hockey puck that pro, collegiate and high school players across North America are using the ball as an essential part of their off-ice skills development

  • Dynamic Core - Patented two-piece ball technology combines surlyn® shell with high density low rebound space-age thermoplastic core giving the training ball the exact feel of an ice hockey puck. The solid core covered by the surlyn shell eliminates any pliancy or "smushing" of the ball between the stick and the skating surface whether you're training on a tennis court, basketball court, paved street, driveway or down in your basement.
  • Weight - The ball is just slightly lighter than an ice hockey puck to compensate for the extra friction of off-ice surfaces. The difference in weight makes the ball "feel" like a puck, which makes it perfect for developing lightening quick hands for puck control, shooting and passing.
  • Height - The diameter of the ball is 2.1875" making the height at which it contacts the stick 1.09" which is less than one tenth of an inch higher than an ice hockey puck. The tangent point combined with the weight of the ball tricks the player's muscle memory into thinking they are working with an ice hockey puck.
  • Bounce - The high density low rebound core has approximately the same bounce coefficient as a frozen ice hockey puck. Dropped from a vertical distance of three feet a frozen ice hockey puck and the smart|hockey stickhandling and shooting ball only bounce 11". This gives the ball the same "dead" feeling of an ice hockey puck against your stick.
  • Slide - The surlyn® shell rolls or slides over any surface at any temperature at the same rate that a puck slides on fresh ice without becoming pliant or "smushy" making it perfect to develop quick, soft hands necessary to become a good stick handler.

    good for shooting

    i bought this over the "Green Biscuit" because you can shoot with unlike the GB. if you are just looking to improve stick skills and pass then get the GB, with this you can shoot and play games without having to worry about it breaking

    Off ice gem

    This thing has improved my toe drag incredibly. Just slightly taller than a puck at contact point, but enforces good stick handling skills. Also, when my pitbull gets it in his jaws, it shows no sign of wear. Great practice product.

    BUY THIS

    BUY THIS BALL! I am a midget hockey player and I do about 3-5 hours a week of off ice training not including running and lifting weights. I use this ball about 15-30 minutes a day, and it is magical. From the second you use it, it feels like puck on the ice. But you really don't how much good it does until you get on the ice. After my first week of use, I almost doubled my stickhandling speed. I now find it much easier to stick around guys during games. Soon you'll be pulling off moves without even thinking about it. Plus, after several months of heavy use, it doesn't show any where and tear at all. Short of a little dulling the color from dust.

    Perfect Practice Ball: Like Puck on Ice

    I use this practice ball in my apt. kitchen. I already see my speed improving. It truly feels more like a puck on an ice than anything I've ever used. Better than wooden balls. Besides the cost, there is nothing bad about this ball. And I definitely do not regret buying it at all. In fact, I wish I'd bought it years ago.

    Good ball, worth the money

    I picked this up as a way to practice on my patio, it does feel surprisingly like a puck on the street, I've enjoyed getting the extra bit of practice. As a beginner, I've found the extra 10-15 minutes a day I put in with this ball have really helped. I'm not sure that it is better practice then a wood ball would be, but I enjoy it, and find it feels quite similar to a puck on ice.

    Smart !

    I used to play in Europe. We use wooden ball to practice at home or outside. This one is even better. My 7 years old practice in kitchen and outside on driveway. 10 minutes a day. Big improvement how he handle puck on ice after few days. If you are serious about hockey, get it and used !

    Great Off-Ice Training Aid

    I've been using mine for 3 months now. While it is not a puck, it is the next best thing if you don't have a Green-Biscuit-friendly off-ice stickhandling environment. (i.e. Particularly rough pavement.)
