However they are so cheaply made, the poles are so thin walled, I feel like they can break at any moment, they should really consider changing the quality of the poles. If you keep them up outside in a slight breeze for a period of time, they will have a slight bend/lean to them. However I have been able to straighten them out so far.
I do think a live defender is important as well, by the way.
But these D-men (football's equivalent is the blocking dummy) allow your coaches to step out of the drill and really focus on details like shooting form, that are harder to lock your attention on when you are part of the drill yourself.
The adjustable size makes them appropriate for all ages.
I use water in the base rather than sand. Haven't had any problem with that.
The six that I own, I have been using now, two nights a week practice, for over a year. No problems or breakdowns to date.
The kids have enjoyed using it for practice and have promised to take it in each night (we’ll see).
