Has anyone ever used a stick handling ball?

As someone who used to use these a lot this definitely becomes a problem. If you can (And I think it's worth it) you should get a skill pad (you can make one yourself) and a green biscuit. It's not exactly like a puck, but it's the next best thing and it's not even close.
Stickhandling was the thing that was really missing from my game, I could skate well, shoot great, making those small moves with the puck really made me worse than I could have been. The smart balls will change your hands from "Stone" to "Not so great", but after using the green biscuit I've gone from "not so great" to "actually pretty good" on the ice.
All in all, go for the green biscuit and don't look back!
