Ball wall. Durable hurl.

    I have a ball wall right beside my house. I find it very therapeutic to get out of the house for 30 mins every day (if possible of course with kids, work etc) and do a bit of pucking off the wall, also gets me fresh air and a bit of a run around.

    The ground in the wall ball area is just plain old tarmac and it’s kinda ruining the bás or toe area at the bottom of the hurl — from picking up ball off the tarmac ground a lot etc

    Can anyone suggest another kind of hurl that would be more durable in this scenario ??

    The indoor hurling stick with the rubber base might be what you're looking for. They aren't overly expensive.

    Thanks. Do you know where these are sold ?

    No those indoor sticks are only made in small sizes for kids

    What would suit you perfectly is a fibre glass Cultec hurley

    They have a website you can buy from, cost €40

    Thanks. Kinda not sure on whether to get the fibre glass cultec OR the composite reynolds.

    Which would suit best.

    I’d go with the reynolds, feels very similar to regular Hurley

    Whatever you do don’t buy one of those indoor hurleys. They won’t be suitable for you
