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 started using the Speed Trac X, which I found to be the best radar gun at the time. Since then HockeyShot came out with their own radar gun I have been using this radar gun for a few years now and I am very happy with it. The radar gun I use is the HockeyShot radar gun

  • It is Affordable – Only $109 (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

    What is your opinion on Speedtrac X vs. Hockeyshot Extreme Radar.
    By the looks of your video it seems the Speedtrac is a bit more durable but it seems they both perform equally as well.

      Really like your site. The Amazon reviews for Speedtrac X and Hockeyshot Extreme are not encouraging to say the least. Can anyone here chime in? What about you Jeremy? Whats your opinion on why such poor reviews. These seem to be the two radars most popular with the hockey crowd…Thanks in advance…

    Will this radar gun work while shooting into a tarp?

    • Reply Jeremy Rupke December 30, 2014 at 4:47 pm

      Only if there is a window or some netting in the tarp. You will need to be able to see the screen and the radar will need to be able to see the puck

    Do you use wax when using friction tape on the blade of your stick? Or is wax just for regular cloth tape? Thanks.

    Hi Jeremy,

    I’m a rec player trying to improve my slapshot and a tennis coach. How accurate is this gun for measuring speeds of serves and forehands in tennis (if you’ve tried or know anyone who has). Thanks.

    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.

    • Reply Jeremy January 9, 2013 at 9:24 am

      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!

    • Reply Vicky March 17, 2013 at 2:53 pm

      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.

    • Reply Jeremy August 12, 2012 at 10:39 am

      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
