Wright Medballs - how do they hold up?

The Wright medicine balls look the same as the Dynamax, and cost half as much. How do they hold up in comparrison?

I have had mine for a year. I am the only one who uses it. It has held up well. I am happy with it.

I have a couple. Can't say enough on the durability as I've only had it for a few months (Jay Lawson may have better opinions on it). I personally like them better than Dynamax as they have a nicer rubberized type of textile on them so it's easier to grip. Just my $0.02

In my gym we keep a roll of Gorilla tape handy since we do Slamballs with them. They will break open at the seems if you are really rough on them...like we are. But I hear dynamax balls will too.

Considering this is not what these balls were designed for, I'd say this is a moot point with regard to durability. If you're gonna do slamballs... well... get a slamball

Re: Wright Medballs - how do they hold up?

He was asking how they hold up. I made it clear that 1:This is in a gym application and 2: That we slam them and are rough with them. Whether you are supposed to or not, a lot of people slam them and want to know how they hold up to that.

If you are just using them for everything but Slamming, they all hold up the same.

We slam the G2 balls, and never had an issue...yet.

Right now I like the feel of the g2 and wright, so I'll just keep slamming and taping.
