Every once in a while, a product comes along that just “makes sense.” The Dangle Glove is one of them. This special glove helps to “force” players to use proper technique while stickhandling.
I’m sure at some point you’ve seen players stickhandling using a piece of PVC pipe, or a toilet paper tube on their bottom hand. This old training technique has been around for a long time, and is used to help players develop the habit of using their top hand to control the stickhandle, while their bottom hand acts as a stabilizer. The Dangle Glove takes this training method to a whole new level, allowing for more flexibility in drill types.
Although the old PVC Pipe method is a good start, there are some major limitations to this training method.
The Dangle Glove fixes the problems with the old, PVC pipe method. Here’s how they’ve done it:

The updated design of the dangle glove let’s players develop their stickhandling skills in a multitude of situations. It’s great for off-ice use, as well as for use on the ice. It’s a fantastic tool, and one that I definitely recommend!
