I spent an entire summer stickhandling with a swedish ball on my concrete basement floor. The result, highlight reel goals the next season.

Aim to develop a rhythm at a consistant speed where it's moving back and forth smoothly. I could usually get this for a little by stickhandling really quickly back and forth (with rolling the wrists) and for a short period within this time I would be at a good rhythm, and the more I practiced the easier it became. You want the contact on the receiving end of the blade to be minimal, like the blade is moving away from the oncoming ball at almost the same speed as the ball is moving towards it, so that the transition is smooth.
