I have been thinking about buying one of these boxing reflex ball headbands for a few months. When I was WT’s age I did not do a lot of sports and never built up my hand eye coordination when it was easy to do.
I have even plotted to make my own with a tennis ball, cord, and a hat, similar to my camera hat setup.
So when Cicloop offered to let me try out their Boxing Ball on String I could not resist.
I must say, WR has had a hard time with this ball. He is getting better. But more importantly he enjoys it, and his mother thinks it is hilarious.
This set comes with a lot for the $12 price:
- Silicone headband
- 2 Boxing balls (different skill levels)
- Spare elastic cords (2)
- Boxing handwraps (2)
- Carry bag to keep them altogether.
The goal is to improve hand-eye coordination with this boxing ball set. The elastic band is supposed to be set at the length of the user’s arem and tied with a bowline. I should have cut the cord after I set it to WT’s size. However, I wanted to try it myself so I just wrapped it aroound the strap. It looks funny in the video, but that is because I choose not to follow instructions.
Apparently I should have read the instructions as the balls were weighted differently to give two levels of difficulty.
I used the heavy ball, when I probably should have used the lighter one.
