I am new here and I am posting here because I sent the following email to some fitness equipment websites here in Britain looking for some sales advice and I have got a deafening silence in reply. So I am wondering if the collective wisdom of this site can advise. Thanks. Here's the email.
I am looking for a bouncing medicine ball. One that is hard-wearing and heavy-duty so that it can take a lot of bouncing off stone walls, concrete or stone-paved ground - that kind of thing.
The weight I am looking for would be around 5.5Kg or 12lbs. If having to choose between 5 or 6 Kg, I will go for 6Kg, particularly if the 6Kg is not too much more in price than the 5Kg. If the 5Kg is way cheaper I might consider that.
Now there seem to be quite a few different makes on the market XLR8, TKO and so on.
I was wondering what the best way to make a hard-wearing medicine ball is so I was looking on the internet for information.
Now I've really got concerns about the durability of rubberised hollow medicine balls because I saw a video on YouTube which shows someone from Si-Boards throwing such a ball up and it breaks in two on the ground. They were promoting their solid polyurethane bouncing medicine ball which they say doesn't break.
They do a 8.5 inch diameter 12lb ball which looks good to me. But that is a California company and I don't know if they deliver to Scotland for how much or if someone else in Britain can supply something similar over here?
Here is the video.

So which bouncing medicine ball is best and why? Who can provide the best ball at the best price including delivery to Scotland?
