The ‘MAX’ ball is also a new introduction for 2011. The ‘MAX’ is a heavy, low bounce ball weighing 1kg which has been designed specifically for handling, strength and core training.
This is a great ball to have in your coaching/training bag. There are many things this ball can help with when used as part of a regular training session, from gradual loading in core stability work and movement specific warm ups to topic technique specific handling, diving, strength and agility work.
Hand stitched for a fantastic round shape, the ‘MAX’ is made from a two tone shine mix material giving a beautiful finish. We have specifically engineered the MAX so that it does not deliver a high bounce (but can still be kicked/volleyed - although please take care when doing so). This is a key function that we have spent valuable time to perfect. As it weighs more than twice as much as a regular ball, we have reduced the potential risk of injury by reducing the bounce at the same time as concentrating on the function of the product. This again is a unique feature compared with any other weighted soccer ball and something that RESPONSEBALL are proud of: developing unique products to enhance your training and development.
We recommend that this ball is used where adults (age 16+) are present and that care is taken when feeding, serving, kicking and throwing. This is a heavy ball. Please do not 'header' the MAX ball. It can be kicked and volleyed but please do so carefully.
The ‘MAX’ is available in a size 5 only.
