Have no idea what “Larp-n” is? Or aka Larp, Larping. Well here is the Definition from wiki “A live action role-playing game (LARP) is a form of role-playing game where the participants physically act out their characters’ actions. The players pursue goals within a fictional setting represented by the real world, while interacting with each other in character. The outcome of player actions may be mediated by game rules, or determined by consensus among players. Event arrangers called gamemasters decide the setting and rules to be used and facilitate play.”
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
