"We took the extra step and improved balance beam ~ '' peraormance. ~WAjE- Q~

"You'll find our balance beam padding just a bit firmer around the edges than at the center, where we rout out the wood to install an extra layer of rubber padding. The gymnast feels that difference and knows her position instantaneously. The firmer edges tend to keep her centered over the beam. "It's an extra step. It costs just a little more, but it helps the gymnast perform better."

Details make Nissen your best buy! The specially developed suede vinyl covering is held in place with a fiberglass stretcher rod that is removeable. It's neat, it's tight, and it's easy to work with if the cover needs to be replaced . At Nissen, we design gymnastic equipment to perform . . . and then we build it to last.
