Love this set up! It's a little difficult to get used to at first, but as long as you start with the black ball, and start with small punches, (think tapping it with your fists) until you get the rhythm, you should progress quickly. After just under a week, I've progressed to the red ball. The headband adjusts well, it fits me without issue and I have a pretty large head. The material for the balls is soft and spongy so while it can come back and hit you, it's soft enough that it doesn't hurt. You can probably make something similar for a few dollars less with a tennis ball, some elastic string, and either a headband or a hat of some kind, but for the time and money you'd invest, and for the material of the balls in the set, with the ability to increase the difficulty level I would recommend spending the few extra dollars on this set up, especially for beginners.
In a few words , the best purchase I did. I love boxing and my mayor problem is have a punching bag in my apartment, I don’t want to make big noise to my neighbors... I find this and is incredible. More focus after practice often and conteo de ball. My accuracy is better plus I can use it any time I recommend to my clients in special my senior clients to improve their reflex and balance.
I love this thing, although mine came without the users guide so I went straight for the red ball, I guess that one’s supposed to be the more difficult of the 2, but using it came pretty naturally, super fun to use and it’s hard to put down once you get started (I train Muay Thai btw)
I used this in my apartment and my gym - after a year off the speed bag, but a few days tuning up with this reflex ball, I attacked that speed bag, no problem. The head band this is a bit strange, and the faster ball has a white rubber string, but all in all, a cool way to build fast eye and hand coordination
Bought this to increase hand eye coordination for pickleball. I wasnt expecting big results from a ball on a string that hung from my head. I could only hit the ball 2-3 times the first day. I practiced 5 mins twice a day. Within 2 weeks I transformed my pickleball game at the kitchen because my reflexes were drastically improved! Great training tool with suprisingly fast results! I am 53 years old.
