  • Better Technique –Players must get low, keep their head up, back straight, eyes on the target and wrap the arms in contact with the head correctly positioned.
  • Agility and Fitness Bonus – Chasing a moving target adds footwork, agility, reactions, and speed to the training mix, making for game style intensity.

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

 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.
  • Maintains the round shape forever.
  • 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.

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

  • 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.
