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.

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.

Used by 5 Star Basketball Camps for offensive skill development
"At the EDGE Training Facility, the training and skill enhancement of basketball players is something we take very seriously. The Rip Through is the best training tool we have seen for overall fundamental skill development of both perimeter and post skills if they want to take their game to the next level."
Dee Brown CEO & President Edge Basketball, LLC
“The Rip Through allows our players the chance to improve their individual games in a variety of ways. While working on sweep moves to the baseline, our guys were forced to have proper technique while simulating the strength needed in a game to rip through defenders. By extending the arm up, our bigs and smalls were able to improve the lift on their jump shots. This is a great product that demands the fundamental techniques needed to improve individual games!”
Kyle VanderWal Head Boys Basketball Coach Grandville High School
"At Michigan State University we have incorporated The Rip Through into our individual workouts. At the top of my offensive basketball priority list is value each possession of the basketball. The Rip Through reinforces that concept because if you are not 'strong with the ball' you lose it. We love the fact that it can be used effectively and efficiently with all of our players and helps develop and reinforce toughness and solid fundamentals in game-like conditions."
