The SkilCoach Heavy Trainer Basketball by Baden is designed to help improve in all aspects of the game — shooting, passing, dribbling, and overall arm strength. The basketball, which is made of rubber, is available in the official size (29.5 inches and 40 to 44 ounces) and an intermediate size (28.5 inches and 36 to 40 ounces). Most official basketballs weigh about half of what the Baden SkilCoach Trainer does.
Using a heavier ball will increase the strength fingers, wrists, and forearms — vital parts for basketball, especially when it comes to dribbling and passing. If used regularly, you can expect crisper, tighter passes and a more powerful, quicker dribble. Usable both indoors and outdoors, the rubber outer cover is extremely durable and will last you for years worth of practicing.
When it comes to training aids, the SkilCoach Heavy Ball is one of the most effective and best basketball gifts for players.
