John Kim and the team at JumpUSA have provided PowerBasketball with yet another quality product
to review in the Bandit Shooting Arm Machine. The picture below gives an image of the look of the product. We have reviewed many of these "strap-on" systems
in the past. This one works well.
|The Bandit Shooting Arm Machine and Accuracy System
The Bandit comes along with an instructional VHS video to help demonstrate how to adjust the machine and a workout to get those muscles to memorize just how to shoot.
The name is a bit misleading when calling it a "machine". There are no moving parts, no metal, batteries, or assembly. It is made from plastic and
has adjustable length, and width, for fitting to a player's arm. It felt a bit clunky when first putting it on. However, most anything will
annoy you when you shoot incorrectly and the product is trying to help you shoot correct.
The 15 minute video that accompanies the Bandit is a bit short. But, the basics of shooting are covered. Proper foot position, hand position,
and shooting form are discussed. The drills that are shown are basic, yet highly effective. I would recommend a few more repetitions of each drill.
They make for a good warmup. My one recommendation is that you should develop a more complex shooting workout. Although, the drills listed will definitely
help improve your jumpshot.
The shooting form discussed is sound and does not offer any more than proper mechanics of the shot. The foot positions are good as well as the description
of how to use the hands, arms, and legs to develop a solid jumpshot. All good advice.
If you are having a problem with too much arm motion in your shot, the Bandit Shooting Machine is a solid choice. Order one today!
