  • D-Ball Slug Core Functional Training Oversized Buoy Bag is a buoy-like oversized weight that is perfect for carries, lifts, drags, and throws executed during core training, functional strength training, and balance training.

    Ranging in weight from 50-150LB but retaining a consistent size of 31 inches long and 11 inches in diameter, the D-Ball Slug works well for athletes of all abilities, strength levels, and skill levels. Its molded marine-grade vinyl polymer surface works well for indoor and outdoor exercises.

    The slug does more than focus on a single muscle group, conditioning the entire kinetic chain to create balance and enhance performance. With the slug you can perform explosive throws, extensive core exercises, even "ground and pound" MMA-style training. Manufacturer D-Ball is the top supplier of weighted balls and oversized weights for CrossFit specific work and skill execution.

    The slug was developed specifically for the Sprint Carry competition at the 2014 CrossFit Games.

    CrossFit is well known for taking non-typical physical movements and turning them into exercises during training and competition. Athletes are expected to perform at peak levels through often times unexpected learning curves during competition.

    The oversized weighted buoy shape of the slug makes it the perfect "training tool for the unexpected" since athletes can perform bear hugs, dead man carries, standing lifts, crouching lunges, heaves and throws. With its unique design and surface, the slug will challenge you in ways you never imagined.

    How is the slug manufactured? 
    The current Core Training Buoy is fabricated quite literally from a repurposed marine buoy mold used for large fishing ships. D-Ball starts by using polyvinyl chloride (PVC) that goes through a unique rotational molding process perfected by parent company Mondo Polymers.

    Liquid PVC is poured like molasses into a mold, baked in an oven, and then cooled down to a flexible state. Each D-Ball buoy bag has a wall thickness of 3/8" no matter the overall weight. The roto molded final product has no stitching like leather, synthetic leather, or canvas covered bags, meaning it will not "split at the seams" from use over time.

    D-Ball's philosophy is to make a fitness product that is useful always and everywhere. D-Ball uses a proprietary mixture of 6-7 fill materials inside each buoy, including but not exclusive to shredded foam, walnut shells, sand, and steel shot. Because of this, each buoy will have a consistent feel no matter the weight or exercise with no "slosh" effect or transference of materials from one end of the bag to the other.

    By merely changing the composition of the fill material, D-Ball can vary the weight dramatically from moderate to super heavy (using USA-manufactured steel shot as a heavy metal filler), all the while remaining consistent within a single length and diameter size. Some sand-filled weighted bags will clump, harden, and become permanently misshapen due to moisture exposure, also referred to as the "concrete" effect. D-Ball core training buoys experience no clumping, and no hardening due to the mix of fillers used. Moreover, a vent hole in the buoy plug allows each ball to adjust to atmospheric conditions such as heat, cold, air pressure, and altitude. No matter where the buoy bags are used, or whatever the temperature, the feeling and density will remain constant.
