TheSmartHockey MAXX Stick Handling Training Ball was based
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 are training on a tennis court, basketball court, paved street, driveway or down in your basement
Weight: The ball is much heavier than a normal ice hockey puck, sitting at 10oz. This ball is designed to strengthen the players' forearms and wrist while making their hands “soft,” making stick-handling much more smooth.
Height: The diameter of the ball is 2.1654″ giving the ball the same contact point
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 SmartHockey 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.
