Smarthockey Training Pucks are newest addition to the Smarthockey Training Systems used by top pro, collegiate and junior players across North America and Europe as an essential part of their off-ice skills development.
The Smarthockey Stickhandling & Shooting Puck helps players develop a "feel" for the puck and super "soft" hands for better stickhandling, shooting and passing. The patented "Stay Flat" dynamic core technology is the only hockey training puck engineered to accurately simulate the weight, bounce, slide and contact height of an ice hockey puck so players can transition from off-ice training to on-ice play without noticing a difference.
The "Stay Flat" core technology features a 5-piece counteractive ballast which ensures the puck will replicate the action of a puck on ice. The 1-piece cut resistant outer Surlyn shell compresses the same way a rubber ice hockey puck does on impact so players can shoot this puck as hard as they want without fear of it breaking it. At 5.6 ounces (159 grams), the physics considers the "incremental weight" caused by the friction of off-ice training surfaces simulating the weight of a 6 oz puck. The inertia of the inner ballast combined with the Surlyn shell allows the puck to slide as quickly as a puck slides on an analogous ice surface and mimics the "dull" bounce of a puck's vulcanized rubber.
And finally since the Smarthockey Stickhandling & Shooting Puck is one-piece, has the same shape and the same diamond knurling as an ice hockey puck (vs. other 2-piece off-ice pucks) it feels exactly like a puck when stickhandling, shooting or passing.
