Green Biscuit Review

The green biscuit is a hockey training puck that is designed to replicate the feeling of stickhandling with a real hockey puck on ice. While many ( too many!) products promise the feel of stickhandling
with a real puck, only a few can deliver. How did it stack up? Read on to find out.

First look at the Green Biscuit

When I first got the green biscuit I thought what most people probably think, oh great another gimmicky hockey training product. You have to admit, it looks a bit funny

Green Biscuit Design

The biscuit is designed to travel flat on irregular surfaces like concrete and asphalt. The idea behind the design is to reduce friction, and vibration that will cause pucks to flip over and normally occurs with other pucks.

The green biscuit is made out of two pieces of plastic with a hollow spot in the middle. The pieces of plastic are held apart by three metal bolts and cushioned with rubber spacers in the middle. According to the Green Biscuit Website this unique design is specifically engineered to stop the it from flipping over. Sounds like a great plan, but for some reason I don’t think that this puck could hold up to my ever improving slapshot, but I can’t wait to try stickhandling and passing.

While there are many pucks that use simple, and often flawed designs in an attempt to achieve an ice like feel, it appears that the green biscuit may actually achieve this. It definitely wins the award for most creative engineering and design. Only one question remains though….

Does the Green Biscuit work?

The short answer is YES! I was pretty amazed at how well this puck actually worked. After using so many shawdy products, I really expected this one to end up as dog toy, I was pleasantly surprised. Below I will share my experience with the biscuit

Stickhandling with the GreenBiscuit

I tested the Green Biscuit on a nice flat piece of pavement. The biscuit moves nicely back and forth and is definitely better than using a regular hockey puck ( see video) I also tried some other hockey training pucks but the Green Biscuit was definitely my favourite. It slides nicely, and is great for toe drags! (as seen in our hockey shooting pad video)

Does it flip up?
When doing slow smooth motions it is almost impossible to flip the it over. I find the biscuit does come up slightly from time to time, but only during quick, powerful moves. I feel this is a good way to train yourself to have nice soft hands, and it only tilts up a bit, so it doesn’t really interrupt stickhandling too much.

If you want to practice a lot of quick moves you could always pick up a hockey shooting pad. The shooting pad works well with the green biscuit by reducing friction even more, and it will also protect the bottom of your stick. We did a full hockey shooting pad review if you are interested

I really liked passing with the green biscuit. Ken and I tried all kinds of variations; quick short passes, long hard passes, rapid back and forth passes, backhand passes, and even saucer passes. The green biscuit worked great for every type of pass, and really felt like passing on ice does.

If you suck at passing I definitely recommend getting a green biscuit, having a friend to pass back to you helps as well!!

One thing that I did notice was when taking a hard pass, if I cupped the pass and then pulled it in towards my body in a sweeping motion the puck would come up on edge against the edge of the blade of my stick. Not a huge annoyance as it only happened a few times, and I easily corrected the puck and continued passing.

Shooting with the green biscuit

A lot of people ask “can you shoot with the Green Biscuit?” Here is my experience

*Winds up, takes a slapshot, hits post, green biscuit explodes*

The green biscuit is not made for shooting! That’s what regular pucks are for đŸ˜€

Green Biscuit Video

Reading about how a product works is good, but seeing it in action is even better, so we thought this video would help show you how the Green Biscuit training puck works.

Green biscuit vs regular puck

Green Biscuit and Hockey Puck

As you can see in the picture the Green Biscuit is the exact same size of a normal hockey puck


The Green Biscuit weighed in at 4.4 ounces. A normal hockey puck is usually between 5.5 and 6 ounces. The Green Biscuit is made a bit lighter than a normal puck to replicate the feel of using a real puck off ice.


According to the Green Biscuit website the Green Biscuit was made lighter than a normal hockey puck because the added friction from rough surfaces makes it feel heavier, or just like using the heavier puck on the ice.


Don’t even think about trying to use a regular puck off the ice or on pavement, the rubber grabs onto everything and the puck will flip all over the place

Of course nothing can match a puck on ice, but the Green Biscuit does slide nicely, it travels in a straight line, moves better if you put spin on it, and has a similar bounce as a puck.

Green biscuit compared to stickhandling balls

Green Biscuit compared to a stick handling ball


As you can see in the pictures the stickhandling ball is quite a bit smaller than the Green Biscuit, however it is also taller. The balls are made to have the same contact point as a puck, so that is why it is quite a bit taller, you can see that the middle of the stickhandling ball matches the top of the green biscuit.


The stickhandling ball I use weighed in at 4.1 oz, with the green biscuit being 4.4, not a big difference at all.


Being round, the stickhandling balls roll very easily, the motion of rolling is obviously different than sliding but provides great lateral movement along the ground. The major downfall of stickhandling balls is the passing ability. If you try to pass stickhandling balls for long distances they have the tendency to bounce and change direction.


Stickhandling balls are great for quick movements and repetition because you never have to worry about them flipping over, however real pucks do flip over sometimes so I think it is a good idea to use a product that most closely reflects the properties of a puck.

If I want to practice some serious dangles I prefer the green biscuit. The major downfall of stickhandling balls is their shape. They are designed to feel like a puck, but no matter how you look at it, they are still balls. When I first started learning how to toe drag I practiced with stickhandling balls, but found when I tried the same motion on ice, the puck would get away from me a lot. When I started using the Green biscuit on a hockey shooting pad (even on pavement was good) I noticed it felt A LOT more like a puck on ice.

Price compared to other training pucks
The green biscuit retails for around $10 US, which is right on par with other training pucks.

Green Biscuit Recap

Highlight of the night
I like how easily the green biscuit slides on rough surfaces and also how much it feels like a real puck. I also like how it doesn’t flip all over the place like other off ice pucks. Passing is great with the GB as well. If I send a nice hard pass to my friend, I know it is going to get there, which makes practicing with the green biscuit a lot of fun.

In the sin bin
The only downfalls I could find with the biscuit is that it is fairly loud (plastic on pavement, who would have guessed) and also it is not made for shooting. The plastic is some-what brittle so if you shoot the puck against something hard it WILL break. Also if you use the Green Biscuit on asphalt a lot it will wear down due to the rough surface.

Overall thoughts

I definitely recommend the green biscuit to anyone who wants to practice stickhandling and especially for people who want to work on passing. I had a lot of fun using the green biscuit, and it has found a permanent home in my gym bag, right next to my roller blades!

  6. Reply Tina June 13, 2012 at 2:04 pm

    I own about two dozen of these things and use them to shoot my 150 pucks a day. Yes, if you cream them against an asphalt curb, they will eventually break down, or if you’re Chara you could easily break one on a slapshot, but they’re more durable than you might think. We’ve blown up maybe three while shooting, but we’d had them forever. Cost most places has come down to around $8-9, so if you just get a couple when you buy other hockey stuff, you can build a collection quickly. I take 10, shoot them across the street in sets of three-to 5 so they’ll scatter. Most of them travel around 48 feet before stopping, some futher, some closer, but the variety is what I like. I shoot them from where they lay, with some movement to replicate a little stick handling. I rarely shoot slapshots with them, but that’s because my slapper is horrible and I don’t want to chase pucks. So, wristers mostly, from anywhere from 24 to 58-60 feet out, and the Green Biscuit works just fine as a shooting puck. Just make sure you leave room behind your goal so low pucks don’t hit the curb…we used Gorilla taper and made a skirt for our goal to prevent holes and also keep the pucks from hitting the curb, but as I said, I;ve been shooting biscuits, as has my son, who has a blistering shot, and out of all the ones I’ve purchased, we’ve only lost three to blow ups (and they still work fine for passing). We’ve lost more to the arborvitae than to destruction, hitting the posts, or slap shots. I think they’d be PERFECT for a roller league. In fact, I think I’d insist, so long as you had a few of them, just in case. And, according to my little radar puck, I slap pass at 90 mph from 48 feet, so I don’t have an especially slow shot anymore, unless you count my slapshot, which is stuck at a paltry 43 and not moving, so I’m clearly doing something wrong, but that’s what these videos are for, right?! Anyway, I say….shoot the biscuit, just don’t try to kill it. It’ll work fine for you, and after some scuffing on the asphalt will turn into a great little razor blade for destroying your net! They’re also fun if you’re a goalie because you can catch them in good gear and they act just like real pucks, don’t fall out of the glove, etc. I love them!

      Probably not im also 12 but i tried it, it works totally fine its better than a puck (for road hockey) but it is awesome!

    • Reply Tina June 13, 2012 at 2:15 pm

      Yes, just don’t try to kill it. See my review above (or below, or wherever it went). Best puck I have ever used on asphalt, and I shoot 10 of them 15 times each, for a total of 150 shots a day, instead of shooting real pucks (because I didn’t have any rubber pucks). Wristers from relatively long range (50-60 feet) are perfect. They elevate if you want, stay low if you want, and I love playing goalie with them…I don’t even use hockey balls anymore, now that I finally figured out how to elevate a puck, and the puck I learned with was shooting the Green Biscuit. Just make sure there’s nothing hard behind the net, try to avoid the bar-and-in shots (use real pucks to practice those), and use common sense with them….they are, after all, hard plastic. But we’ve hit them every way there is to hit a puck, and they’ve held up remarkably well since I tried them out a couple of years ago. Love ’em, and I shoot with ’em, as does my son who has Crosby’s dryer beat…he used the USPS mail box that we share with the neighbors. I’m sure the postman is less than pleased!

    My friend bought the green biscuit and when i tried it i thought it was fairly good but the only problem i had with it was that it still flipped up in some cases when passing. Also i used a wooden hockey stick with it instead of composite and when you get a pass from it feels as though ur stick is gonna snap off. When i received a pass i would try and absorb it but it would slam right into and flip over my stick or go right through from under!

    • Reply Jeremy May 2, 2011 at 1:35 pm

      The only time I really find the GB flips over is if I am using it on a rough surface and then run / roller blade with it on the blade of my stick without moving it. It will flip up the odd time when passing, but if you put spin on it then it is almost impossible for it to flip. Hands down it is the best off ice puck though.

  16. Reply Sunny Squash (from Britain) April 22, 2011 at 6:09 pm

    Being from Britain, the road surfaces differ greatly from those in North America. Having been to Florida and Toronto I have first-hand experience. In Britain the asphalt is very gritty and so are footpaths; there is nowhere in my town which has a smooth surface (other than the skatepark, but I’m not gonna go that far for some quick puckplay). The only surface I could use is the hardwood flooring in my home but I’m sure I’d drive the parents crazy.
    Long story short: how well does the green biscuit work on gritty asphalt?

    Thank you for your time

    I had an idea to make a stick handling puck without spending 10 bucks and i think i made one that is close to the feel of ice on cement. I made it out of a auto body repair filler called duraglas and it seems to be strong and easy to make. The only bad thing is it is kind of heavy but if you want pictures i can send you some on facebook or email.

    Hey thanks for the review.

    My question is that I play a regular game of roller hockey with a plastic ball on outdoor baskeball courts were there are no boards. The surface is a typical tennis court ashfalt that has a bit of grit which makes pucks of any sort unusable. Because there are no boards, there is no hard shooting in our game otherwise we would be forever fetching the ball from the grassed areas. Do you think the green biscuit might be a suitable substitute?


    • Reply Jeremy May 24, 2010 at 2:28 am

      I think that as long as you don’t hammer it off of anything hard it will hold up. Ken and I were passing it nice and hard and also doing long saucer passes and it didn’t show any signs of stopping. I would give it a shot, let me know how it works for you!

    good review. I’d heard of it and after trying everything else, tried it too. I like your review and agree, the only thing I didn’t do was shoot it which I guess I’m glad I didn’t. I practice with it mostly in my basement but have taken it out on the roads in my neighborhood and in some parking lots with really rough asphalt/concrete. It performs amazingly well. It doesn’t slide like a puck on ice but it’s as close as I’ve come with a street/off ice puck.
