TAP™ Max-Grip Weighted Ball
The TAP™ Max-Grip sand-filled weighted balls have a non-slip matte finish surface that gives extra grip unlike other pliable (plyo) weighted balls available today.

Intended to address the needs of amateurs and professionals alike, the Max-Grip Weighted Balls are designed to last while being easily cleaned to meet the hygienic needs required in today's athletic community.

The TAP™ Max-Grip sand-filled weighted plyo balls can help correct mechanical deficiencies while increasing strength. When implemented correctly weighted ball training can be beneficial for throwers and hitters alike.
Throwing Max-Grip Weighted Balls is an excellent addition to any off-season routine. The variable stimulus presented by the training can help develop movement patterns that add velocity and improve command. Training with heavy balls can strengthen muscles and ligament/tendons in the elbow and shoulder potentially decreasing risk of injury.
Hitting Max-Grip Weighted Balls provide resistance at the point of contact requiring the batter to drive through the hitting zone. Used in soft toss drills or with the tee, the soft-shell construction of these weighted balls provides instant feedback. The pliable shell causes miss-hit balls to pop up or plunge to the ground and not travel far if the ball is poorly hit. The characteristics of the Max-Grip Ball allow hitters to adjust power and bat plane to produce a desirable result.
These weighted implements are not toys and should be used with proper instruction and supervision in areas where there are no sharp edges or points. When considering the use of weighted balls please keep the words of two prominent authorities in mind:
"Adding energy or strength to dysfunction is usually a bad idea."-Randy Sullivan, CEO Florida Baseball Ranch
"Weighted Balls are simply a tool. They are NOT a panacea or a quick fix for anything. They can be beneficial, or they can be utilized inappropriately and have deleterious effects."-Ron Wolforth, CEO Texas Baseball Ranch
