Rubber atlas stone?

I'm looking for a rubber atlas stone 100-150lb for conditioning inside. I've seen Wright's 100lb medicine ball but would rather have a rubber atlas if possible.

Anyone know of a manufacturer?

Thanks in advance

A little pricey, but it's US Made.

Yikes. $230.

Matt -- What's preventing you from using concrete inside?

Easy. I'm using a 125# stone in my garage. Two or more layers of horse stall mat should be protection enough. In my situation, I'm using two layers of stall mat, and then on top of that I have a folded-up thick rubber yoga mat that I had laying around from days gone by. It works very well; quite bouncy, and I' not worried about the concrete floor at all.

Just think creatively about how to create a shock absorbent landing area. I haven't tried this, but another supplemental idea would be to fill some sort of bag (canvas, burlap, etc...) with rubber mulch (or sand) and land the stone there.

Re: Rubber atlas stone?

What about a 100 pound sand bag? Buy an army surplus bag and fill with sand. Tape it up. Might leak a little sand but otherwise won't hurt the floor.

I wonder if D-Ball would ship the shell empty then you fill with locally bought sand or shot?
