The Difference Striking Pad

Going beyond traditional tackle dummies or blocking implements, the Difference Striking Pad is uniquely specialized to promote proper hand placement and striking techniques for today’s serious football player—no matter your size, skill level, or experience. The machine is made with pride in the USA, and was first introduced in the weight room at Ohio State University. Today, it’s is in use of hundreds of high school, college, and pro facilities across the country, with its convenient portability and rack-mount design enabling easy set-up and takedown.

The Difference Striking Pad is built to handle daily abuse, indoors or out. The machine is constructed from 0.1875" A36 Steel Construction (powder-coated) with a nickel-plated inner tube for a smooth, consistent operation. The pad itself is formed from an extremely durable, extruded polyethylene XLT foam with a naugahyde, abrasion-resistant vinyl exterior. There are four different spring tensions to choose from, depending on your training goals:

  • Green Spring (Lil Rookie = 15LB – 35LB) – Great for young athletes, introducing technique, rehab, punching.
  • White Spring (Rookie = 35LB – 70LB) Great for Junior High and High School Athletes.
  • Gray Spring (Challenger = 70LB – 105LB) Great for High School, College and Professional Athletes.
  • Black Spring(Champion = 105LB – 150LB) Great for College and Professional Athletes.

All springs are powder-coated and made from strong, quality wire. They can be quickly swapped out so athletes of varying size and skill can adjust the Striking Pad to their preferences.

Installation: The Difference Striking Pad ships with a 3x3" Monster Attachment Mount and 1" Detent Pin.

Applications: “To promote upper body strength, explosiveness, and to develop a high work capacity. It is the only upper body training machine that not only makes you stronger, but promotes hand placement and hand striking technique.” -- Difference USA president Anthony Schlegel

The Difference Striking Pad is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I bought this with the intentions of using it for training my 10 year old son for football and general strength building but quickly found out that as an ex-football player that it's great for me as well. The various springs allow for varying intensities. The black spring is a beast and challenge for even the strongest of man. I highly recommend this product.
