A friend sent me this photo from a local store that makes these… I was going to go with the traditional “Happy Easter” caption on it… but right before I was about to hit save. I decided to change it =) See the other one below and let me know if I made the right choice! Happy Easter Everyone!
“Green Biscuit Snipe” is what they are calling it. I have the “sauce” version and I recommend now shooting it but they are claiming now that the “Snipe” version is totally shootable. I went to Sports Plus in Whippanny, NJ and they have this awesome display right on the counter. I didn’t test one out but I am very tempted to buy one. They are a little more expensive that the original but If it doesn’t break and works just as good then I’m ALL IN! For more info click here
Nothing like a good ole fashion Puck off! Well training puck off that is… From left to right of the screen we got:
8oz Fly Puck: made of really hard plastic. Built for stick handling and added 2 oz of weight will help you build up those forearms and etc… Can be used for shooting if you have a tarp but not recommended to shoot off of a goal or anything that could damage the puck. Works extremely well on Dry Land flooring titles (but more on that soon)
Official 6oz Hockey Puck: Well it is an official 6oz hockey puck… plain and simple. Doesn’t slide the best on the dry land tiles as the rest of the plastic based pucks but shoots great off it and is obviously the most durable out of them all….
Verbero Duro Puck: Just right off the bat this puck is a “proto-type” so it is not for sale in the market yet. Just so you are aware of that. It is a hybrid. It has a rubber outside feel to it with plastic sliders on the top and bottom of the puck. Has great feel to it. It also slides really well on Dry Land flooring tiles. With these current sliders in the puck it is for training only. Not for shooting on a net. Probably will work well with a Sniper’s Edge shooting tarp (more on that soon with video)
Green Biscuit: another hard plastic puck that works great on rough outdoor surfaces and actually works really well on smooth practice tiles as well. I don’t recommend shooting with this puck either. I tried it and cracked it my first shot off the post. But this puck will work well if you wanted to shoot into a soft tarp as mentioned before.
All these pucks have found a place in my heart and hockey off ice training. They all have a different feel than another. They both have their strengths and weaknesses. I will have more on this soon with a video to follow. To much details to have this blog post go on and on for hours. If you want to follow the discussion I will be posting it in the review section of www.thehockeynetwork.com and on facebook @ www.facebook.com/uppercornerhockey
Green Biscuit which can be found at our new sponsor Hockey Shot is a stick handling training puck. Right off the bat I will say “do not shoot with it”. I heard others say “oh dude you can totally shoot with it”. Well it was bad information. One dink off the post and this thing cracked like an egg. (as you can see above). Even with that said I highly recommend anyone with a driveway, garage floor or even a shooting pad to get this device. It slides great and is an awesome device to practice stick handling.

I got this in the mail today from Verbero Inline Hockey. It is the Duro Inline Hockey Puck. The most durable inline puck on the market today. This new line of Inline pucks has an interchangable sliders! According to Verbero “Our Team has designed the duro to be not only long-lasting and versatile, but to have profamance akin to that of the advanced Verbero Model”. That is great news to hear because I am going to put this puck to the torcher test! I am going to beat the snot out of this thing and video the whole thing. Stay tuned and sub to us on facebook.com/uppercornerhockey for all the updates and like Verbero on facebook @ http://www.facebook.com/VerberoHockey
Just shot this video this morning. I got up early to do a quick work out seeing I didn’t get to Monday. I shot a little video to keep myself honest and found this empty gatorade bottle sitting in the corner so I used it as a target. Also I just started that youtube channel today so please subscribe like and all that. I will only be posting hockey videos on that page because I got a few complaints that they didn’t want to see all my production company videos on my old channel. I hope this works =) All shots taking with my Sher-wood T30 hockey stick. Great stick for a budget composite stick.
