TheSmartHockey MAXX Stick Handling Training Ball was based off the design of the original SmartHockey ball but with a big weight difference. This ball is made with the same material as the original SmartHockey training ball and has the same slide, contact height, and bounce as a regulation ice hockey puck. However, they increased the weight to 10oz. as opposed to 6oz. so that it could strengthen the player's forearms and wrists. This would in turn make the player's hands “soft,” making it much easier to handle a normal ice hockey puck.

Product Specs

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 as 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 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.
