rogue ballistic block

I was wondering who has used one before and how it holds up to sledge hammering. I have a hammer with no room for a tire in garage. Plus for the price it doesn't seem bad considering it can be used for a plyo box too.. thanks

Re: rogue ballistic block

I saw the guys from Rogue hitting a #45 hi Temp with the War Hammer. I would buy two of those, that would be more useful.

Re: rogue ballistic block

I like Tim's idea, I've used my hi temps as lifting blocks (and for actually lifting) for over a year as well and they have held up awesome.

Re: rogue ballistic block

Or you could just get a durable bag and stick a boulder inside and tie it up. If you hit that bolder every single day with your hammer, one day you will have a free sand bag!

Re: rogue ballistic block

I dont know how they got it to hold still on the video. I bought one thinking it'd be great to use for the same purpose so I wouldnt have a tire taking up all that room- the Ballistic block bounces all over the place when its struck.

Re: rogue ballistic block

I've got two ballistic blocks and they are awesome! We use them for sledge hammers, low lifting blocks, odd object carries, and hopefully some deficit HSPUs fairly soon (once I actually get good enough to do them...). On occasion I'll also stack them on top of our 30" box for higher box jumps. They are pretty versatile and can take a hefty beating. The only wear they've sustained so far is the logo fading and some roughness on the edges (mainly from being dropped after using them for carries).

Literally the greatest idea I've ever read on this column. Just not sure where one could find such a bag.

Re: rogue ballistic block

I ended up going to a tire supply place for tractors and forklifts and stuff and got a decent sized tire to whack and it was free
