“The ball racks impress just about everyone that touches them…the fact that they are so sturdy gives them that needed value”
-5 Star Basketball Camp
“The overall reaction…from both the coaches that utilized the Rip Through for stations or workouts, and those who saw it in action, is that it is a valuable training tool”
-5 Star Basketball Camp
"Being the #1 training facility in the world, we pride ourselves on making players better on a daily basis. The Rip Through has been our most used training tool because it allows us to simulate the physical environment of a game in a training setting. This is one of the only training tools we have seen that can actually improve player toughness. It is a must have for anyone looking to develop tougher players."
-Jared Redell & Justin Sherlock
“The Rip Through allows our players the chance to improve their individual games in a variety of ways. While working on sweep moves to the baseline, our guys were forced to have proper technique while simulating the strength needed in a game to rip through defenders. By extending the arm up, our bigs and smalls were able to improve the lift on their jump shots. This is a great product that demands the fundamental techniques needed to improve individual games!”
-Kyle VanderWal, Head Coach
"We have used the rip through for one year now. It has really improved our first step on our sweep through moves. We are stronger with the ball and we attack with more power and quickness. We also use the rip through to cut through like we are going through screens. This has helped our motion game."
“Being in the coaching business for over thirty years there have been many teaching aids introduced, The Rip Through has been the most instrumental in our player development. In today's skill improvement areas the Rip Through gives coaches extra help, coaching station, and teaching tool to help players maximize their abilities. The Rip Through will be added to our summer camp individual stations. This is a teaching aid that will stand the test of time. Coaches looking for ways to improve their program will benefit greatly from having the Rip Through”.
"We have found the Rip Through to be an extremely valuable tool for our program. It is easy to use, versatile, practical and most importantly it works. This is a tool that we use on a daily basis with every player in our program."

I've found there is no substitute for hard work, but Powermate products can help take you to that next level."
“The Rip Through" is a quality piece of equipment that allows us to make sure our guys are as strong with the ball as they need to be to assure success at the D1 level. I love using it with our post players because by adjusting the arm to its lowest setting, it makes sure our guys are sweeping the ball across their shoe tops with a motion to rip thru the arm without losing control of the ball. I know without looking to see how low they are getting because I can hear the resistance. Our guys really enjoy using the "Rip Through".”
“The Rip Through is one of the most diverse training tools I have ever worked with. We use it for contested shooting for both the perimeter and post. With a simple adjustment of the arm angle it also forces our players to begin moves in a strong, decisive manner. It is the best training tool I have seen for the offensive skill development of young players.”
“The Rip-Through by Powermate is one of the most diverse teaching tools I have ever seen. It has helped our perimeter players to be stronger with the ball, and by a simple adjustment of the arm it has helped our post players learn how to finish their post moves on the block.”
“The Rip Through is one of the best basketball training devices that my teams have ever used. We have found it to be a very valuable part of both our off-season individual player workouts and daily practice. The Rip Through is used every day by our players at all three levels and it is very versatile and can be used in a variety of ways. I would highly recommend it to anyone who is serious about developing the individual skills of their players.”
