Tackle Rings vs  Tackle Tubes -Which Model is Best for You?

 Tackle Rings are made up of a foam inner and PVC outer.

  • Suits all levels.
  • Junior and Senior sizes available.
  • Softer and to tackle.
  • No inflation required.
  • Can’t be punctured.
  • Always ready to go.
  • Easily stored with other contact gear.

 Tackle Tubes are an inflatable tyre inner and PVC outer.

  • Rolls faster than Foam Rings.
  • Has a round surface like torso shape.
  • Firmer to tackle.
  • Can be deflated for storage and transport.
  • Recommend for ages 12 and under. Once players are tackling hard and have good timing the Foam Ring is recommended. This is primarily due to safety as players can bounce off the Tyre Tube if tackling at high speed with power.
