The Smarthockey MAXX Stickhandling & Shooting Ball helps players build stronger forearms and hands for a harder more accurate shot.
At just over 8 oz (228 g), the MAXX is almost double the weight of the Smarthockey ORIGINAL and feels twice as heavy as an ice hockey puck. The patented MAXX 2-piece ball technology combines an ultra durable Surlyn shell with a steel core. The solid core covered by a Surlyn shell eliminates any pliancy or "smushing" of the ball between the stick and the training surface. The diameter of the ball is 2.18" 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 added weight combined with the roll and contact height of the MAXX ball strengthens a player's wrists simply by stickhandling and shooting it.
Warm up before games and practices or train in your garage, basement, on a tennis court, basketball court, paved street or driveway. As the name suggests, it's the only ball players can use for stickhandling, shooting and passing drills.
Smarthockey Training Balls are the #1 off-ice training balls in the world. They are used by top pro, collegiate and junior players across North America and Europe as an essential part of their off-ice skills development.
