Hockey Products we Recommend

  • EZ goal hockey net reviewHockey Net – Ez-goal $99.95 at Hockeyshot.com
    • We did a review of the EZ goal fold up hockey net and found it was a quality net for the price. This is likely the best net you will get for around $100. With a hard shot (over 70MPH) you will be able to dent the posts, but I have had the net for a year now and it still holds up. The posts have a lot of dents from my 100 slapshot a day phase, but the net is still standing and I am still shooting on it. If you want to buy a hockey net and see our video review visit our EZ goal hockey net review
  • shooting-net-hockeyA Big Ol’ Net – $32.99 on Amazon.com
    • My big chunk of netting has come in handy a few times. When I first got a house I didn’t have anywhere to shoot so I just strung my big net up in between two trees and blasted pucks into it. I finally got a hockey net and put it away.
      The problem was my hockey net quickly got holes in it, so I just draped my big piece of netting over the back, problem solved
    • Now I have moved and have a bigger area to shoot at my net, but I noticed even with the backstop I still had the odd puck get away from me. Big piece of net to the rescue, I strung it up between a tree and a post and voila, problem solved (that’s my net to the right)
    • The link above is not the same net I got, I ordered mine from a local shoe lace / net factory when I was about 15 years old, but it looks like the netting I linked to is similar in size and quality.
  • Hockey Shooting Pad – $89.95 and up at Hockeyshot.com

    • If you are practicing for hockey one training aid that is a MUST HAVE is a shooting pad. With a good sized pad you can practice your shooting and stickhandling whenever you want. I highly recommend the roll-up shooting pad and if you want something smaller then check out the hockey shooting pad review
  • Green Biscuit $12.95 at Hockeyshot.com (get a few, they are great!)

    • I have reviewed a lot of off-ice pucks and the only one that I really liked was the Green Biscuit, it is far better than any other off-ice puck because it slides without flipping up and rolling around. I use the Green biscuit all the time on rough surfaces, and I always use them on the shooting pads to practice stickhandling. I definitely recommend this product and suggest you buy a few at a time to save on shipping. If you want to buy one, and see our full review visit our Green Biscuit review page.
  • Radar Gun$139.95 on Hockeyshot Use our coupon code to save $10! (coupon code in left sidebar)
    • hockey radar gunI love this radar gun. It has helped me tweak all my shots and quickly add about 5-10 MPH to each of my shots. The Radar gun helped me recognize a few bad habits I had and then change them. I would go out on a daily basis and try new things to see if it helped or hurt my speed. The gun allowed me to discover new ways to get more power, and a few things I was doing wrong that was hurting my shot.
    • Currently Hockey Shot has the best price on this radar gun (better than ebay and Amazon). You can use our coupon code in the left sidebar to save $10 as well. If you would like to learn more about the radar gun check out our hockey radar gun review

I bought ezpuck ultimate xl combo shooting pad. May i know the shooting pad is made of what material? How to maintain the shooting pad? How to revert back glossy surface as there’s small dull on the board due to use wrong remover to clean small black mark. I tried using pledge wood polish, wd40 to clean the dull portion. It doesn’t work.

Jeremy Rupke June 25, 2014 at 8:48 pm

I don’t really do anything to maintain the shooting pads. They loose a little slickness, but still fine for shooting and stickhandling

Jon Harms April 7, 2014 at 7:01 pm

Just received the hockey shot dryland tiles in the mail today. Set them up and they seemingly don’t lie completely flat, therefore the puck catches on some of the seems. What do i do to fix this problem?

Jeremy Rupke May 6, 2014 at 7:18 pm

I’m not sure, the only thing I could think of is you did not get all the snaps in properly. I had about 50 set up on carpet and had no problems with seams

Thanks I will buy a new stick

Hey Jeremy!

An employee at a sports store told me that that expensive hockey sticks (like the Bauer nexus 1000) break, chip and scratch easier than cheap sticks (like a Bauer vapour 4.0) because they are based more on performance than durability. I’m not shure if this is true or not. Can you help me out?!

Thanks

Ben January 3, 2014 at 11:02 am

Hey Jeremy!

I have heard that cheaper hockey sticks in the 50-120$ range last longer than sticks that cost 200$+. I have a warrior bandito that cost 120$ and I have Been using it for more than 4 months for games and practices. The only problems are chips and scratches. 2 weeks ago I bought a bauer nexus 1000 for 270$ and the employee at the store told me that expensive sticks are meant for performance so they break, chip and scratch easier. Is this true? If you could help me with this that would be great!

Reply

Jeremy Rupke January 8, 2014 at 11:17 am

Yes this is true, the more durable material is heavier so typically the cheaper sticks last longer than the top end sticks

Ben January 25, 2014 at 6:51 pm

Thanks! I will keep this in mind next time I buy a new stick

Marco Fummo August 20, 2013 at 6:03 pm

Hiya… i am and intermediate player and i am playing recreational hockey for the Hull stingrays Juniors in England. At the moment i am choosing a new hockey stick and i am not sure which one to get…would you reccomend either the Bauer supreme one.4 or the Reebok 23k RibCor? i have tried both of these sticks in a synthetic room with a goal and shooting pad and i like them both as much so i would just like to ask for your opinion?

Much appreciated
Marco

I would like to play goalie but can’t find good looking affordable pads that I can use to practice on the street also could you do some things about goalies not just the skater?

Reply

Ben January 26, 2014 at 8:04 am

You can get nice looking street hockey gear at places like Canadian tire. They have ccm, reebok, Sherwood and warrior street goalie gear. The pads are usually 50-70$, glove and blocker are usually 25-30$ each, helmet costs about 20-30$, chest protector is about 25$ and goalie stick is about 25$. So you are looking at about 145-180$ for a complete set.

What is the best stick for someone who only started a few months ago

Reply

Jeremy Rupke May 15, 2013 at 7:39 am

I would start with something affordable like a wood stick, chances are no matter what stick you get you will eventually want something different after talking with friends and team mates. It will take a while but eventually you will find a flex you like and a blade pattern that suits you.

Caleb December 6, 2012 at 11:05 pm

I live in Miami Florida so I can’t practice much what could I use that would help me pactice but isn’t expencine but still strong

Jeremy December 6, 2012 at 11:32 pm

The hockey shooting pads are your best bet a big one will let you practice your shot and stickhandling. They are a bit expensive though but consider it an investment in your skill. It’s something you will use A LOT for quite a few years so it will pay off. You could also try a sheet of the plastic they use for bathtub / shower surrounds. The problem is that stuff will break and crack so it’s only a short term solution.

Kristen Cowgill December 3, 2012 at 10:46 pm

Could you let me know what happened to StickAssist.com?

can’t find it anywhere on the web.
thanks

Pretty sure the guy stopped making them and packed it in!

Danielle December 12, 2011 at 10:27 pm

I’m Christmas shopping for my 11 year old son in his 8th year of hockey. I am not sure what the primary difference is in the extreme passing kits…the bungee cord one or the one timer passer. They both look great and cost the same…which one would you recommend as a training tool for a Pee Wee player?

Thanks so much!
Danielle

christian February 4, 2012 at 2:48 pm

I would recemend the one timer passer because it is easier to install and it is better experience.

Asher November 27, 2011 at 2:26 pm

Which do you like more the dryland flooring tiles or the shooting pad? Also which one slides better?

Thanks!

Reply

Jeremy Rupke May 15, 2013 at 7:41 am

They both slide great, tiles are better for a room inside a house or garage if you want a big area to practice on. Then you can keep expanding your area. The shooting pad is better if you just need a small spot to work on your hands or shooting.

Kelsey November 12, 2011 at 7:34 pm

febreze! buy yourself a drying rack, hang the gear, spritz with some febreze and voila! presto! BAM! fresher smelling gear. works for skates and under armour as well!! hope i helpd ya out dur buddddyyyyyyyyyyy!:):):)

Do you work for the company?

Josh Huisken July 20, 2011 at 9:11 am

I recently bought a medium size shooting board but most of the time, the puck does not slide well and flips around too much. Does anyone have any solutions? (something to get the puck to slide better on my shooting board)

Reply

Kelsey November 12, 2011 at 7:31 pm

spray or sprinkle something like pledge, or wood polish or oil. just a thin layer. simply spray, wipe, and use. remember to not wipe it clean, just to get the extra residue off the surface. when theres too much on the board, thee puck wilnt slide, itll just stick like the puck does when theres water on the ice. just wipe and sue, simple 3 steps that you havent gotta do vurry oftennnnn:) hope i helped ya out dur buddy! :)

Ben January 3, 2014 at 11:14 am

I usually run some snowboard wax over the shooting pad to make the puck slide better. You can also put wax on the bottom of your hockey stick to Make your stick slide better too!

Bentley Wong July 11, 2011 at 6:12 pm

Hi,

I have a cheap solution for eliminating stinky equipment. I mix a half and half solution of 99% pure isopropyl (purchased from Costco cheap) and either tap water or if you like distilled water. I spray my gear after each game and it basically disinfects all my equipment. The downside is that if you have a short turnaround time your gear will still be wet. Since I place my gear in the boiler room in my house it dries pretty quickly. If your gear has developed a smell that doesn’t go away after a single treatment then do it again and that should do it.
Oh, it’s also great for your stinky running shoes and the stinky mat where your dog sleeps.

Good Luck,
Bentley.

Hi Jeremy.I was going to ask you a off topic question.When I take a slapshot the puck doesnt go high ,fast,or far.I am scared of breaking my stick.Is it me or something else?

Reply

Alex May 15, 2011 at 12:30 pm

When you take your slapshot you want to have firmness with the stick. But you must be taking the slapshot correctly. If you feel like you are breaking your stick buy a bundle of wood sticks to shoot with and beat the snot of them and when you finnaly get it down use a composite stick and you should see your slapshot ripple right through the air

albert October 26, 2011 at 6:06 pm

that happens to me too i want it to go top corner sometimes or just high but it doesnt happen i check out the slap shot accuracy thing but didnt help!!

Alex April 23, 2011 at 6:12 am

Hi Jeremy, I saw your review of the hockey shot dryland flooring tiles and was thinking about decking out my garage with them. but i was wondering if you could use roller hockey skates on them? in the video you said you can’t skate on them but i assume you meant ice skate.

Cheers
Alex

Jeremy April 26, 2011 at 4:29 pm

I haven’t personally roller bladed on the tiles, but I did see an entire roller rink set up using them so I assume they are fine. I would suggest soft wheels though! I still have the tiles, but I do not have any roller blades. I might buy some and test it out for the summer.

Joshua January 9, 2011 at 4:00 pm

Alright Jeremy I read your comment via email and ill do the review ASAP ill email you when the video is complete and you can watch it and tell me if its a product worth purchasing.

Joshua January 6, 2011 at 3:23 pm

I found a good hockey bag with a heat cleaner, basically it’s big shock doctor bag and it has an attachment hole on the side were the pockets would normally be. You just leave your hockey equipment in the bag plug in the heat cleaner and it does its job, the name of the bag is the “shock doctor power dry” you can buy the bag for $100 and the dryer for $50 not so sure if that’s still the price but if you want i can put a review of it on my youtube channel so you guys can check it out! Let me know

Hello Team

I am very new and green to playing hockey and am very excited to get on the ice this year for the first time. I have been on your site the last couple of weeks watching the videos which i thought were very helpful. I practice the drills in my living room while staring at the tube.

Since i am new to hockey i was curious about how to care for my * NEW * gear that i would like to smell like new for a long as possible ( Impossible from what i read online).

Thanks for all the info and videos and will spread the word !

Michael

Well… there is great debate about how to keep the equipment smelling fresh, and the short version is… you can’t.

My best recommendation is to wash what you can, when you can. Some guys wash their gear (socks, jersey, jock, under armour) after every game. I usually do it every 2 or 3 games, but it gets a pretty bad stink by 3 games.

From what I have heard the #1 culprit of stink is sweat, and bacteria, so try not to leave your equipment damp and warm for too long or you will get bacteria, and maybe even mould.

One guy I play with says he puts his gear in front of a dehumidifier after every game and it works wonders. I have yet to try it, and I wouldn’t recommend doing it in a house, that would make the whole place smell :D

Good luck!
