I’ve used quite a few brands of medicine balls over 20 years of working in college weight rooms.
Recently, I decided to do my own side-by-side comparison. So, I bought 10 different medicine balls. Some are med balls that I’ve used before and I added in a few more popular medicine balls to try out.
The Titan Rubber Slam Ball was one of those ten and, overall, has performed rather well – especially considering the price.
In this review, I’ll break down everything you need to know about the Titan Slam Ball so you can make an educated decision about whether it’s a good fit for your own gym.

Why Trust My Reviews? I’ve spent 20 years as a collegiate sports performance coach and have been lifting personally even longer. I’ve bought and used equipment for both 14,000 square foot weight rooms and for my own garage gym. Finally, I only review products I’ve personally tested.
Rogue Echo Slam Ball
Price: B- (I paid $110)
Shipping: B- ($36.76 for the group of 3 Rogue Balls. Arrived in 3 Days)
Details aka Specs
I bought a 30-pound ball, but it comes in sizes ranging from 10 to 50 pounds.
The ball has a rubberized exterior shell and it feels like (Rogue doesn’t say on its product page) it’s filled with sand on the inside.
All the Echo Balls are red with a Rogue strip across the middle that you can see in the picture above.
My ball is 9″ in diameter and noticeably smaller than a standard 14″ wall ball and smaller than Titan Wall Ball I bought which is 11.5″. Balls in the 35 to 50-pound range are slightly bigger with a 10″ diameter.
I paid $110 for my 30-pound ball. At the time of this writing, pricing ranges from $45 for the 10lb pound up to $145 for the 50lb ball.
It’s much smaller in diameter than the Titan Slam Ball. Makes it easy to throw and the sand seems to fill almost the entire space inside the ball so it doesn’t shift around as you’re working with it.
The smaller size also makes it easier to work with for many movements, especially for core exercises like seated twists.
Good looking ball. Overall a minimalistic design which I appreciate. Bonus if bright red fits in your gym color scheme.
Has been a tank so far from a durability standpoint. Absolutely no signs of wear and tear after 600 slams.
The price. This slam ball was one of the most expensive medicine balls I bought out of the entire group and over double what I paid for the other slam ball.
I don’t really have anything else negative to say about the ball.
I’m really enjoying this Rogue Echo Slam Ball. The ball looks great and has performed excellently thus far.
My only issue is the price. It’s over twice as much as the other slam ball I bought. Do I like it better? Yes, I do. Do I like it twice as much? That I’m still not totally sure about.
