6oz Stickhandling & Shooting Puck - 3 Pack
The Smarthockey 6oz Original Training Puck helps players develop a “feel” for the puck and super “soft” hands for better stickhandling, shooting and passing. The patented “Stay Flat” dynamic core technology is the only hockey training puck engineered to accurately simulate the weight, bounce, slide and contact height of an ice hockey puck so players can transition from off-ice training to on-ice play without noticing a difference. The “Stay Flat” core technology features a 5-piece counteractive ballast which ensures the puck will replicate the action of a puck on ice. The 1-piece cut resistant outer Surlyn shell compresses the same way a rubber ice hockey puck does on impact so players can shoot this puck as hard as they want without fear of it breaking it. At 5.6 ounces (159 grams), the physics considers the “incremental weight” caused by the friction of off-ice training surfaces simulating the weight of a 6 oz puck. The inertia of the inner ballast combined with the Surlyn shell slides as quickly as a puck slides on an analogous ice surface and mimics the “dull” bounce of a puck’s vulcanized rubber. And finally since the Smarthockey Stickhandling & Shooting Puck is one-piece, has the same shape and has the same diamond knurling as an ice hockey puck (vs. other 2-piece off-ice pucks) it feels exactly like a puck when stickhandling, shooting or passing. Warm up before games and practices or train in your garage, basement, on a tennis court, basketball court, paved street or driveway. As the name suggests, it’s the only puck players can use for stickhandling, shooting and passing drills.
ALL NEW STICKHANDLING & SHOOTING HOCKEY TRAINING PUCK: After launching the original Smarthockey Training Ball in 2001, it took us almost 17 years to introduce a puck that lived up to the Smarthockey name. The all new Smarthockey Training Puck with patented “Stay Flat” dynamic core technology is the only off-ice training puck that matches the weight, bounce, slide, height and feel of a 6 oz ice hockey puck.
DEVELOP SUPER "SOFT" HANDS AND UNMATCHED "FEEL" FOR THE PUCK: Have you ever played against someone so good it was as if the puck was on a string? Have you ever heard the expression "his hands were as soft as pillows"? That only happens because of thousands of hours of practice. The Smarthockey Training Puck allows you to workout or warm up on any hard, smooth surface so you can develop super "soft" hands and a "feel" for the puck for stick handling, shooting and passing.
ONLY HOCKEY TRAINING PUCK DURABLE ENOUGH FOR STICKHANDLING AND SHOOTING: There are pucks that slide well for stickhandling but you can’t shoot them, and there are pucks that you can shoot and pass but they don’t slide well. We developed a puck using the same cut resistant Surlyn we use in our Smarthockey Training Ball that slides like a puck on ice but is durable enough to be shot against a cement wall (if you can’t hit the net).
PATENTED “STAY FLAT” DYNAMIC CORE TECHNOLOGY: When Smarthockey decided to develop a training puck, we wanted to engineer a technology that kept the puck flat no matter how rough the practice surface. After almost two years of prototyping different technologies, we designed a 5-piece internal ballast that worked so well we are thinking about introducing it to ice hockey pucks. It was also so novel that we were awarded another patent.
SAME WEIGHT, BOUNCE, SLIDE, HEIGHT & FEEL AS AN ICE HOCKEY PUCK: The Smarthockey Training Puck has the exact dimensions, the same “dead” bounce and was engineered to feel like a 6 oz. ice hockey puck. If you want to see how close it is to stickhandling a puck on ice, try our puck for 5 minutes on smooth cement right before you go on the ice. Then use it to warm up before every game and practice like you’re supposed to.
