I bought this for my 16 year old son who is a star soccer player and track runner. He said it works amazing and he can already see his speed improving through the exercise and practice with this equipment.
Really love it for my son (plays baseball) and he wants to get really fast in running, BUT!! he is 11 years and the shoot is too low, so when he runs it hits the ground. The sales man did not say anything regarding height??
This a very good product. I purchase this product to help out my 11 yr old son build up speed. Over the last three weeks he has shown much improvement and has gotten quicker. One thing to be aware of, do not expect yourself or your child to turn into the Flash overnight. It is a work out tool to assist you in improving your speed at a gradual pace. The more you use it the better your results. My son uses it 3 times a week along with other drill he participates in.
The speed chute my dad and I ordered works great. It arrived in a matter of days. The chute is very light and comes with it's own carrying bag which is totally convenient. I'm looking forward to continuing my basketball training and we will be ordering more training products in the upcoming months.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
