How To Hockey

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.
