Hello CrossFit Community!

I recently started CrossFit and I am loving it! The community is great and helps get me psyched to work out. I have been thinking about getting a slam ball as it is a great stress-reliever for me and it is a fun full-body exercise. Do you guys have any recommendations? I’ve read posts on how to make them with basketballs, but I don’t think they last long. I’ve been looking at Rage Slam Balls: http://www.ragefitness.com/inventory.asp?CatId={E10F7981-B3FF-46C4-90A8-79EA5F560F6B}

Do you guys have any good experiences with any brands?

I live about 40minutes drive from Rage, so I get a lot, though not all of my stuff from them. The quality has been consistantly good. I’ve used their pull-up bars at FrontRange CrossFit and liked them. I buy from Rouge also, them seem very similar. I bought my bar and weights from Pendley.
