Rip Through

Full Contact Defender
Learn to rip through and execute with toughness and contact!
The Rip Through ® provides players with a realistic and safe way to practice protecting the basketball from the hands of a defender. The game of basketball is becoming a game of physicality that is being played by bigger and stronger players. The ability of a player to begin a move in a tough, aggressive manner is essential to the success of the play. The Rip-Through's patented, spring-loaded arm allows a player to simulate the force of a defensive player trying to steal the basketball. The Rip-Through forces a player to begin any move with toughness, and forces the player to concentrate on maintaining possession of the basketball. In addition, the adjustability of the Rip-Through allows the unit to be used for contested shooting drills, or to provide resistance for interior shots.

A vast majority of basketball games are decided by the slimmest of margins. Use of The Rip-Through can help reduce needless turnovers, thus providing your team more productive possessions. Possessions that may very well help you win the game!

“The Rip Through" is a quality piece of equipment that allows us to make sure our guys are as strong with the ball as they need to be to assure success at the D1 level. I love using it with our post players because by adjusting the arm to its lowest setting, it makes sure our guys are sweeping the ball across their shoe tops with a motion to rip thru the arm without losing control of the ball. I know without looking to see how low they are getting because I can hear the resistance. Our guys really enjoy using the "Rip Through".”

“The Rip Through is one of the most diverse training tools I have ever worked with. We use it for contested shooting for both the perimeter and post. With a simple adjustment of the arm angle it also forces our players to begin moves in a strong, decisive manner. It is the best training tool I have seen for the offensive skill development of young players.”

“The Rip Through is one of the best basketball training devices that my teams have ever used. We have found it to be a very valuable part of both our off-season individual player workouts and daily practice. The Rip Through is used every day by our players at all three levels and it is very versatile and can be used in a variety of ways. I would highly recommend it to anyone who is serious about developing the individual skills of their players.”
