The use of various types of hockey balls has a profound effect on ball hockey's dynamics. The Knapper Pro Fluid Balls, for example, offer a unique solution with liquid inside to reduce bounce and enhance handling control and stability on shots. These balls come in three different hardness ratings for varying playing temperatures.

These balls are designed to meet most federation's standards in terms of weight, size, and material, ensuring uniformity and fairness in gameplay. The liquid inside these balls improves performance by reducing bounce and improving handling control and stability on shots.
Weather conditions significantly impact the performance of hockey balls. With the Knapper Pro Fluid Balls, you would select the Pink ball for cooler conditions (0 to 15°C). Our most versatile ball is the Orange ball for what we consider average temperature (15°C to 25°C). On the other hand, in hot weather conditions where balls may become softer and affect their speed and trajectory, the Red ball, designed for temperatures 25°C and above, would be ideal.
