Product Review:
The RAGE Fitness Slam Ball has a textured surface to provide a better grip during your workouts. The weight values (LBS) are green on a black gloss surface for easy viewing when looking for the size that you need.

Overhead medicine ball slams are great for working the entire body and for releasing some aggression, but they tend to take a toll on the medicine ball itself. Enter the RAGE Slam Ball specifically designed and tested by myself to withstand an onslaught of abuse!  Slam balls are used to enhance your workout routine by simply holding it while performing exercises. Examples of these include sit-ups, squats, lunges and overhead presses; when working with a partner you can do chest passes, overhead passes, and abdominal work through rotation variations. Slam balls can also be used for athletic training by enhancing cardiovascular endurance, increasing muscle mass and improving hand-eye coordination. Perfect for getting rid of excess energy and pent-up frustration.

Cross training is founded on innovation and variety – and our slam ball helps transform your WODS and quickly advance cross training levels, all while letting you reap all of its benefits with unprecedented ease.  Slam ball workouts tone the cardiovascular system, enhance circulation and dramatically improve your strength and endurance. By moving at a high speed, you push your body towards producing more power – and FAST.  Slam balls add a layer of resistance to exercises which traditionally rely on bodyweight. They naturally increase muscle mass and improve posture and balance, through aiding in regulating movement patterns. Simply the highest quality slam balls on the market. and backed by a industry best 1 year warranty!

Available in weight increments from 10 lbs up to 100 lbs, these rubberized, dead-bounce Slam Balls can benefit athletes of any size and skill level or for traditional medicine ball exercises, as well. I have been working with a 20lb slam ball and as a 185lb 5'11 male it presents a challenge! I would definitely not use this for wall balls but what I like about this ball is it gives a whole new meaning to Ball Slams (having a much more challenging load picking up with every rep) and long distance running carries.

This slam ball is well constructed and just slippery enough (I would prefer a slightly grippier ball, which they offer on their site) that it forces you to apply additional grip to maintain adequate control. It is an excellent tool for a near complete functional movement total body workout out. It has very little bounce which forces one back into the squat position to retrieve it for your next rep.


I have been using it now for a few weeks and its perfect. Plus I feel like this thing will be around for a long time, it feels heavy duty and well built. It's obviously a smaller diameter than the Med-balls when doing Wall Ball workouts which is the only complaint (dead bounce slam balls do not work as well as wall balls for that particular movement) plus you can't beat the price.

In conclusion:
Quality: The quality of this product is great. I have used the ball with several clients over the last month and it has been slammed from overhead over 1,000 times easily. The ball shows no sign of wear or leakage whatsoever. The ball is just as good as when it came new.

Overall any of RAGE Fitness slam balls will compete with any slam ball on the market and I would feel 100% confident using them in a commercial gym, private studio or home gym. I plan on buying more and would recommend them to anyone. Like mentioned above, my only critique remains that its use as a wall ball is possible, however not ideal.
