Comments about SKLZ® D-Man Hands-Up Defensive Mannequin:
I bought 3 for my team. The bases are quite large for transport. I only bring 2 to practice right now. They are good to show the players on how to shoot over a defender, dribble in between defenders, dribble by defenders, using the pivot to get space, and practicing post entry moves.
They are adjustable in height.
The only drawback I would say is to possibly have the hands be adjustable to move up and down. Otherwise, they are great.
They do come with a spike base to use for football or soccer.
