Smarthockey Training Balls are used by top pro, collegiate and junior players across North America and Europe as an essential part of their off-ice skills development. The Smarthockey MAXX Stickhandling & Shooting Ball helps players build stronger forearms and hands for a harder more accurate shot. The MAXX is almost double the weight of the Smarthockey ORIGINAL and feels 2X (12oz) 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.
PATENTED 2-PIECE WEIGHTED HOCKEY TRAINING BALL
There’s a lot of technology in this weighted ball. This ball is coated in the cut-proof Surlyn that is used in the Original Smarthockey Ball. Then a stainless steel core to add the weight. The combination of the shell and the core created a size to weight ratio that earned us a patent. It’s the only ball that rolls as smoothly as a puck slides on ice, but is so heavy that it strengthens your wrists when you shoot or stickhandle it.
2X THE WEIGHT WITH SAME BOUNCE, SLIDE & CONTACT HEIGHT AS AN ICE HOCKEY PUCK
The MAXX is almost double the weight of the Smarthockey ORIGINAL Training Ball and feels 2X (12oz) as heavy as an ice hockey puck. The contact height 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.
ONLY WEIGHTED TRAINING BALL DURABLE ENOUGH FOR STICK HANDLING, SHOOTING & PASSING
Smart Hockey wanted players to be able to work on their stickhandling, shooting and passing, so they knew the ball had to be durable. The cover is constructed with the same Surlyn formula that was used in Titleist golf balls back in 1997. We chose this formula because it’s “slap shot proof”.
