SKLZ Chrome Hopz Pro
Not Sure Yet if It Will Help
As I went to strap it on, one of the biners was somewhat rusted & hard to open enough to clip on...I'll see if the vendor will replace it. The bands had white specs, which may be normal, but I'm not sure, also need to check with the vendor. It really is tricky to walk in, it makes your feet want to come to your butt. I tried a few jumps which seemed challenging but not impossible. We'll see if it works!

Use it for jumping exercises, use it for developing drive off a pitching mound**** ( I use heavy rubber bands threaded through rings on back of vest to hold back my Son while he drives off mound Had to add nylon loops 6" long to allow my Son 6'7" to use product Also use the rings in back of vest to attach nylon cords to hold him back while sprinting. Will next start to attach weighted sled to back rings to drag

I use this product mostly to train my sons (1 a high school basketball player and the other a college basketball player) and I use it occasionally myself. While I can not vouch specifically for how much it improves vertical jump, I can say I have had no issues with the quality. Both sons are about 6'5" and use the Hopz Pro 1 to 2 times a week to help with overall leg strength and explosiveness. I am very pleased with this product. Only downside is the nylon where the bands connect to footstraps can irritate your calf muscles - wear over the calf socks.

I have already exchanged this item because the velcro on the stirrups failed after the first use. I examined the new item in the store and do not have much faith in the velcro on this one either. Without the stirrup staying in place the item is pretty much useless. I suppose you could tape around the velcro to hold the stirrup in place but for this money I don't think you should have to resort to taping.
