LAX Wall vs. Pro II Rebounder
Let's talk about the rebounders. As you know we have two, both of which serve different purposes with some cross over.
LAX Wall: This will allow the player to throw the ball at the wall and the ball will return at the approximately the same trajectory as it was thrown. The ball will return at the same or lessor speed. This refines basic catching and passing and non-dominant hand handling skills. Advanced players can use this for “quick sticking” because of its dependable ball return. This is a large piece of equipment close to 8 feet tall and weighs 61 pounds. Very easy to assemble (5 minutes).
Pro II Rebounder: This will allow the player to throw the ball at the rebounder and it will return the ball back at the same or greater speed at a more unpredictable angle based on where you make contact with the netting. This works on reflexes for the player for adjusting to the catch. This can also be used in conjunction with a goal when the player is practicing by himself/herself and the player catch use the rebounder to simulate a pass/catch and then shoot on goal. It is lightweight so it can be easily moved around to be used at different angles in relationship to the goal. Easy assembly about 20-25 minutes only because the time needed to put bungees on the pipes. Both products are very well constructed and can be left outside. The Pro II rebounder net will last for a long time (at least 4+ years...and counting), the bungees that hold the tension on the net will have to be replaced about every 2 years to maintain tension but we keep those in stock and they are available for only $23 per set.
I hope this helps! Dale@CrankShooter
