Has anyone ever used a stick handling ball?

I'd recommend the smart hockey ball( or training with a ball ) for repetition and muscle memory. I've used a shotpad and flypucks as well and they can simulate ice fairly well and offer heavier weighted pucks for practice, but they only work together. A training ball can be used damn near anywhere. Both help greatly. If you want to add another dynamic, make yourself a weighted stick(
) and you'll notice an every greater difference in strength.
Anything you do off-ice will never be 100% accurate, but can get close enough for the repetition to be there. Fine tune everything when you get on the ice.
