The Heavy Ball is ideal for any player who wants to become a stronger shooter, passer, rebounder, and ball-handler. It weighs more than twice the official weight of a regulation basketball (1.3 lbs.), yet maintains the same size and feel of a regulation ball. It is available in both regulation and intermediate sizes and comes in rubber or composite leather.
Official Size: 29.5" weighs 3 lbs.
Intermediate Size: 28.5" weighs 2.75 lbs.
Handles and bounces just like a regulation basketball
Build your arm, wrist, and finger strength for improved dribbling, passing, and shooting
Great for post players looking to improve power moves
Ideal for any player who wants to become a better rebounder
Coach's Tip: Begin with 2 heavy balls; one on each lower block. Pick one heavy ball up and explode to the rim, dunking if possible but getting as high as you can. Rebounder must retrieve heavy ball out of the net and place back on the block it came from. Player moves to other heavy ball on opposite block and repeats. Make 10 as one set.
Comes in rubber or composite leather
The composite leather heavy ball does cost $30 more than the rubber. After choosing the heavy ball package that best suits your needs, you will be given the option to upgrade to leather upon checkout.

How the Heavyball Works
"Before I used the Heavyball, I used to just pat the ball and not really dribble, which would often lead to turnovers. Now after using the Heavyball for a couple of weeks, my dribbling has dramatically gotten better and stronger. I feel more confident with the basketball in my hands and not worried about turnovers. Another reason I purchased the Heavyball was to broaden my shooting range. I used to only make three-pointers once in a while; now I can shoot them with ease. I feel much stronger and more confident in my shot. Though OI have only used the Heavyball for a couple of weeks and done the workout exercises provided, I already feel the difference in my game." - Kevin Wang, Arcadia, CA
"Wow...I love this thing...When I first got it, it was heavy but in just a couple of weeks the ball has become very light to me. I feel stronger now. What I love about this ball is that after playing with it for just five minutes, a regular ball becomes light as a feather. After practicing for two weeks, I stopped to test myself with some of my friends. Before, I always got blocked because I can't shoot from outside so I have to get close to the rim, but now, I can even do three-pointers! This is the best thing...i love it. Thankyoy si much JumpUSA for everything..." - Agee Y.
