The Drop Attack rugby training machine is a pass and kick machine that will maximize your training time on the most difficult to practice phases of the game. True to its name, this unit will deliver a realistic drop kick, firing the ball 40-50 yards into the air. It will also replicate chandelles (or up and under) and torpedo kicks, hundreds of precise repetitions per practice.
With a simple and quick adjustment to the wheel position the Drop Attack instantly becomes a passing machine. Passes to feet as well as powerful torpedo and spin passes can be thrown with extreme consistency.
The coach can now work on different combinations that he wants to play with his forwards and defenders. For instance he can start the game with a drop kick and he can get the forwards to work together to win the ball. For lineouts he can work with different set plays and just focus on throwing the ball down the line. Using the machine to deliver all of the kicks and throws allows the coach to focus entirely on training each athlete.
This unique training tool has solid polyurethane throwing wheels that firmly grip the ball for a precise ball delivery. The wheel guards protect the wheels and help to keep the wheels as dry as possible in inclement weather.
Rapid fire and multiple ball drills are part of the Drop Attack’s repertoire. The two independently running electric motors create not only a near instantaneous recovery time, but furnish enough power to put the rugby ball anywhere on the field. It can pivot instantly in any direction, accurately throwing passes or drop kicks to any location on the field.
