Gentlemen, which practice dummies do you think are most beneficial (big tackling dummies, half rounds, shields, etc)?

Depends on the drill and what you're trying to accomplish.  That being said, I like half-rounds because of their versatility.  They can be used as agiles, tackling dummies, shields and beds.

I agree...my half rounds are my favorite, followed by my shields, then my wheels and finally the full rounds....
None of them suck, they just haven't found what the kid is good at yet.
