July 16, 2014 - Hammer Away

By Dovber Chaiton

One of the best rising cricket brands in the world is Hammer Cricket, they have a superlative range of bats and general cricket equipment.


One of the most popular forms of recreational and sometimes even competitive cricket is Tape Ball cricket. It is fun and a lot easier than hard ball cricket as there is no need for all the added protection. There is a need though for a quality bat to play tape ball cricket with and that is what makes the Hammer Fyrre Tape Ball Cricket Bat, a great first purchase bat for any cricketer.


The Hammer Fyrre Tape Ball Cricket Bat is made out of high quality Kashmir Willow. The bat is formed with a very subtle bow. The subtleness of the bow means that the bat has a very well weighted and even pick-up and balance for the batsmen.


The profile of the bat is what you can expect from any well-crafted modern cricket bat. The sweet spot is in the mid-section of the bat and the bat feels slightly toe heavy. Toe heaviness is not uncommon with Tape Ball Cricket Bats and Hammer Cricket has engineered their Fyrre Bat to suit the needs of batsmen facing a Tape Ball. The bounce of a Tape Ball is unique and as such the structure of the bat lends itself to dealing with that, not only adequately but very well.


The bat itself is aesthetically very pleasing, with minimal fuss around the stickers, leaving cricket lovers to marvel and enjoy the hunk of willow that is the bat. It comes fitted with a professionally fitted toe guard for added durability and is sure to be a hit - excuse the pun - among players of all skill levels.

This piece of sporting equipment is the ultimate when it comes to capturing the vital data on the performance of a player. It is great for multi-sports. It is fantastic for tracking the data of tennis players, soccer players, basketball players, rugby players, football players and handball players.  It collects data on the top speed of a player. It can tell you what your burst speed is and it can tell you your total distance covered in a game or practice session.

There is a slight catch to this incredible product. In order for you to efficiently capture the data of a player during training or during a match, you need to have miCoach compatible adidas shoes. You also will need to download the miCoach multi-sport app. The Speed_Cell itself comes with a lace clip for easy and comfortable on shoe positioning. The onboard memory is quite incredible and can store all measurement data for up to 7-8 hours of activity.

The technology is compatible with Bluetooth Smart Ready iPhones, which means that you will need Bluetooth 4.0 or higher in order for this product to work.

However, once you do get it working, the results are quite incredible. As a coach or player, you can quickly identify particular strengths or weaknesses. This means that you can hone in and master the skills where you may be lacking and exult in the skills and further perfect the skills that you already have. It is made from high quality components and boasts top of the line technology. If you take your sporting code seriously then you would seriously want to get a piece of this adidas incredible training product.

July 3, 2014 - Back at it Again

Tomorrow is Independence Day which, of course, makes us think of our National Pastime, baseball. And if we're thinking about baseball, of course we're thinking about JUGS Sports. In a lot of ways JUGS is baseball, from their iconic pitching machines used from the pros on down to youth league, to their pop-up nets that allow players to hit any time, anywhere.

If two of my sons weren't thousands of miles away playing right now, I can tell you what a good part of my Fouth of July would consist of - heading down to the batting cage and throwing bucket after bucket of BP...followed by a heavy ice session for my back. The throwing of a couple hundred pitches is tough enough, but bending down over and over again to pick up another handful of balls is brutal. That's why there is the JUGS Bucket Plus. It simply holds your bucket up within reach so there's no more stooping. And because it folds up compactly, it's easy to carry from the car to the field and back, just like all of JUGS' portable products.

So tomorrow, whether you're watching baseball, playing baseball or pitching baseballs, enjoy our nation's birthday. Take a moment to cherish that time at the park and to appreciate the freedom that JUGS and the other great companies we've reviewed over the years have to be able innovate and create these outstanding sports products for us to enjoy.

June 26, 2014 - Space Shuttle

All the years I coached Little League, softball and travel ball, I was looking for things my players could do to improve their hitting during practice. No one likes to see a team with a coach on the mound, throwing pitch after to pitch to one hitter at the plate, while the other eleven kids lounge around in the outfield picking clovers, waiting for an occasional ball to roll up to them.

 

I wanted to create hitting stations which would allow multiple players to be swinging a bat simultaneously so that every kid got in a ton of cuts. But here was the key – and the challenge. These stations had to insure safety not only for the hitters, but for the other players in the field. Little League parks are small and kids that age are not the most aware or careful. We couldn't have hard balls flying around from various locations.

 

I wish Shuttle Baseball had been invented then. This is the perfect compliment to any youth baseball or softball practice. Shuttle Baseball is a foam ball; not squishy like a Nerf, but not hard enough that it would seriously hurt anyone. By itself this ball would travel great distances and could leave a good welt if it hit a youngster point-blank. But what makes this different is the addition of the badminton shuttle-cock. This brilliant combination means the product is safe and multi-dimensional.

 

The wind-drag caused by the shuttle, or tail, slows the hit ball and virtually eliminates roll. This means that if a coach sets up a station where kids hit these off the tee, they are not having to chase them for miles and there's nobody who is going to get tagged by a hard line drive. But the design also makes this a great training tool. Since the tail causes the ball to fly according to how it is hit, serious players can use it to work on their swings, getting instant feedback from the ball's flight.

 

This is a rare product that can be used to teach beginners to catch, hit and throw. It is perfect for school playgrounds. Want your aspiring star to be able to hit off the tee at home but don't have a lot of space or a big net? He can hit Shuttles all day long in the back yard or even the garage, no other equipment required. There are so many ways it can be used, you'll surprise yourself at your inventiveness. Which is what the folks at Shuttle Baseball had in mind when they invented it in the first place.

June 18, 2014 - Sacred Shins


There are few pairs of legs in the world that are as precious as Lionel Messi. Many defenders in the world cup will have their eyes on Messi's legs as they attempt to stop the Argentinian striker from putting the ball past their goalkeepers.

So, how does Messi protect those golden legs, without hampering his speed and dribbling ability? The answer, the Adidas F50 Pro Lite Messi Shin Guards.

As their name suggests, one of the extraordinary features of these shin pads is their extremely light weight. They obviously come with Adidas unique techfit upper, this provides natural comfort and support for a seamless sock like fit. The snugness of the fit is a beautiful balance of comfort without hampering circulation. This is because the sock like guards act as a compression sleeve, which adidas have engineered to circulate blood back to the center. This improves performance where other builds of shin guard may hamper it.

The protection offered by the adidas F50 Pro Lite Messi Shin Guards is on par with industry standards and ensures that players legs are well protected. The no strap construction is also an advantage of these shin guards that most professional players are finding highly beneficial. No straps means no itchiness or uncomfortable velcro digging into the players legs. The design is inspired by Lionel Messi, so you can rest assured that there is speed, agility and ultimate performance in mind.

The aesthetics of the shin guard will also be appealing to many players. The allover print is very funky and will make any player stand out at training. This all round brilliant shin guard is sure to aid performance and provide protection ensuring that players stand out on the field of play too.
