The Smarthockey ORIGINAL Stickhandling & Shooting Ball helps players develop a “feel” for the puck and super “soft” hands for better stickhandling, shooting and passing control. The patented 2-piece dynamic core technology is the only hockey training ball engineered to accurately simulate the weight, bounce, slide and contact height of an ice hockey puck so players can transition from off-ice training to on-ice play without noticing a difference. The solid core covered by a Surlyn shell eliminates any pliancy or "smushing" of the ball between the stick and the training surface. At 4.5 oz (128 g) the physics considers the “incremental weight” caused by the friction of off-ice training surfaces simulating the weight of a 6 oz puck. The combination of the shell and proprietary core matches the “dull” bounce of a puck’s vulcanized rubber. The tear resistant Surlyn shell rolls as quickly as a puck slides on a fresh sheet of ice. Finally, 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. Warm up before games and practices or train in your garage, basement, on a tennis court, basketball court, paved street or driveway.
DEVELOP SUPER "SOFT" HANDS AND UNMATCHED "FEEL" FOR THE PUCK
The Smarthockey hockey training ball allows you to workout or warm up anywhere so you can develop super "soft" hands and a "feel" for the puck for stick handling, shooting and passing.
SAME WEIGHT, BOUNCE, SLIDE & CONTACT HEIGHT AS AN ICE HOCKEY PUCK
The exterior shell is constructed of surlyn (same material as a golf ball). This allows for speed, and to give the ball a "dead" bounce. The ORIGINAL Ball is 1-inch in radius for height and feels like a 6 oz. ice hockey puck.
PATENTED 2-PIECE DYNAMIC CORE TECHNOLOGY
The technology of the ORIGINAL ball starts with the core which is a patented compound that’s actually used for non-lethal bullets. It has perfect weight and bounce characteristics when combined with a Surlyn cover. The cover has a story too. It’s actually the same formula used in Titleist golf balls back in 1997.
