Hockey Radar Gun

If you practice your shooting on a regular basis I recommend that you invest in a hockey radar gun. There are quite a few radar gun’s available but most of them are fairly expensive and a lot of them require somebody to hold the gun and read out the time (designed for baseball or football). After careful research I finally found a radar gun that I thought would be good for hockey. I have been using this radar gun for 2 years now (as of summer 2012) and I am very happy with it. The radar gun I purchased is the SpeedTrac X Radar gun from Hockey Shot and the first summer I used it I improved my slapshot by 20MPH!

Why I like this Radar Gun

  • It is Affordable – Only $129 (use our coupon code to save $10 if you buy it at HockeyShot)
  • It is Durable – I have dropped it a lot of times, hit it with pucks, and left it out in a light rain storm and it STILL works
  • It is accurate – I have not tested the EXACT accuracy but the speed I got was pretty close to another radar gun I used that was worth over $1000
  • Battery operated – This is great, I can use the radar gun anywhere I want (there is a cord if you want to plug it in, but I prefer batteries), also the batteries last for a long time
  • One man use – The radar gun has a nice large display right at the front, so I can instantly see the speed after I shoot
  • Kilometers per hour and MPH are an option

Points to mention

If you are thinking of buying this radar gun I should mention that not EVERY shot will read properly. The odd time (maybe 1 in 10 or 20) the radar gun will throw a low number, I’m not sure if it is reading the speed of the hockey stick or something else.

Where to Buy the Radar Gun

Overall I love this radar gun, it helped me take my slapshot from an embarassing (off ice speed) 55MPH up to 75 MPH in just a few months

How far away does the Radar Gun need to be? I have a net setup in my garage and I’d like to get a radar gun but I only have maybe 10-12 feet since my drive way slopes.

Anywhere within between 5-30 feet is good, however if you are too close the gun will sometimes pick up the speed of your stick rather than the speed of the puck. I suggest being about 15-20 feet back.

I really want one of those, I am adding it to my Christmas wish list. I really want to see how fast my shots are!

I love to do slapshots! When you dont have one of those things you think your shots are as fast a Charas!

It’s true, nearly everyone I ask says their shot is 80-90 MPH, then they shot on the Radar gun and are sadly mistaken

Heh heh heh I’m sure they are. I should buy one of these especially since half my team think they’ve got the power of Johnny T in their shot.
