Green Biscuit Snipe Review

Post image for Green Biscuit Snipe Review

by Jeremy Rupke on June 30, 2013

A few years ago I did a review of the Green Biscuit. It instantly became my favourite off-ice puck and I have been recommending it every since. In the review I was only testing it for it’s stickhandling capabilities because that’s what the puck was designed for, and it worked great. The only two problems with the original Green Biscuit was that it was a bit noisy, and if you shot it and hit something hard it would probably break. In comes the Green Biscuit Snipe

The Green Biscuit Snipe is made with a tougher type of plastic that can withstand the force of hitting hard object. The original biscuit is made of a hard brittle plastic, this makes it slide well on cement and rough surfaces, however with a hard direct impact it will shatter. In the video below I compare the Green Biscuit to the Green Biscuit Snipe, I stickhandle with the Snipe, and I test it with some direct slapshots to the post.

What is the GB Snipe good for?green-biscuit-snipe

If you want to improve your shot I would stick with normal pucks. The Green Biscuit Snipe currently sells for $14.95, you could buy 14 pucks with that money and I think that would be a lot better for working on your shot.

For stickhandling on rough surfaces I would still go with the 503 Service Unavailable
