The Hi Control kickers have lower rebound than the Hi Rebound, but increased control and increased protection, and will last longer. The kicker also has a double layer of high density polyethylene foam bonded into the middle of the kicker. While this extra layer of foam adds some extra weight, the protection increase is considerable and rebound performance is not affected. Durability of the Hi-Rebound kicker continues to be improved with strap exit reinforcement on the underside of the kicker. The pre-moulded tongue goes a long way in reducing pressure on the shin, easing friction in the early stages of use. The hidden strapping system continues to create the perfect smooth kicking surface.
