Super Shooter Review – A Net for Serious Training

The biggest piece of advice you will get from any coach when it comes to shooting is “Shoot a lot of pucks”. Most coaches will recommend to take 100 shots a day, some recommend more, but the general consensus is that in order to improve you need to get A LOT of shots in.

This makes sense from a scientific standpoint, because muscles have muscle memory. In order to train your body to perform an action consistently and well, you must repeat the motion over and over until you can perform it automatically. In order to allow hockey players to take hundreds of shots in a quick period of time, the Super Shooter was invented.

More than just a shot trainer

After training on this net I quickly realized that it can help improve much more than your shot. I found the following benefits.

  • super-shooter-netAccuracy
  • Power
  • More time spent shooting because it’s fun
  • Hand eye co-ordination from catching pucks with the stick when they are returned
  • Quick release
  • Receiving a pass
  • Being prepared for a rebound
  • Mentally rewards the player each time the target is hit (the puck comes back)

Video Review and Shots

Pro’s and Con’s

Benefits – It works great and is fun and can improve a number of skills. It is also very durable and made to withstand 100’s of thousands of shots. It would be a great addition to a training rink or private training centre, or even a AAA organization to use at stations.

Downfall – The obvious downside is the price. At $3500 the Super Shooter has a steep entry point. This makes the product expensive for personal use, however if we look at the benefits that an entire organization could gain from having this handy for any practice or training time the price may be justified.

Another downfall may be with younger players who don’t have good accuracy and power. The puck may not come out every time when they hit the target. However, this could also be a benefit as this will motivate them to improve so the puck will come out the other side.

    What happens when the pucks stay in the tubes ? How do you get them out ?
    I can see a situation where you have a few pucks stuck in the middle of the tube…

    Jeremy,
    Thanks for the video on the Super Shooter 2. It looks like it would be a lot of fun to train with. What was the surface that you put down on the ground to shoot off of? It looks like it replicates the physics of shooting on the ice really well.

    We have Three Super Shooter 2’s in our training facility and they are getting pounded every day with shots from Mites to High School Players. They have been very helpful in segmenting our Training Center and Kids love the instant gratification of getting the return puck so they can quickly shoot again. They are super durable and we have not seen the drop off in usage that we had seen in other training aids. I think that they will be used for years to come.

    I am the GM and Hockey director at the LumberYard Hockey and Sport Center. We have a SuperShooter2. We have many young players that use the Shooter. They enjoy training with it and keep shooting longer with this device because it’s fun. If it keeps a kids attention and keeps them shooting longer than they would at an empty net, to me, thats a success!

    I think this is a great product too bad there isn’t a lower cost option for driveway use. How does this product work if you are not standing directly in front of the goal? As nice as it is to be squared up with the net it typically doesn’t happen as often as I would like in a game situation so I am constantly taking shots off center. Thanks for the post & review!

      Hey Brian, that is one thing I didn’t even think of. You do have to be square to the net to train, so it would be hard to train bad angle shots using the Super Shooter 2
