Product Review: Green Biscuit

As an Inline coach, I've noticed working out outside the rink can be difficult to do at times.  Most notably, working with an inline puck on the driveway, street or asphalt court can be hard because the puck doesn't want to stay flat.  While it can be said, handling that bouncing puck will improve your game, it's can also be frustrating to new player in trying to practice their stick-handling and passing skills.

Over the weekend, I picked up a Green-Biscuit at the newly opened TotalHockey store in my hometown.  I was looking for a puck that would be more responsive for passing outside.  I have to say, it did not disappoint.  On the driveway, it rolled smooth and fast.  Much more responsive that an inline puck.  We were able to make hard passes and it was pretty realistic to a puck on the tile floor. In fact, it was much faster and felt more like passing a puck on ice. Stick-handling also was really easy and smooth.  The only thing I noticed is it's loud.  Because of the two-piece construction and the connectors between the two halves, it rattles a bit when working with it.  Not a complaint, actually kind of cool in its own way. 

One thing I would recommend is that you do not shoot it into hard surfaces (wall, goal posts, etc) as its not made for a hard impact from what I researched.  As you'll see from the pictures, it's a little beat up after an hour or so of work outs but I expect that on the hard pavement.

So if you are looking for a puck that will make your off-rink workouts more effective, then I highly recommend spending a few bucks for this puck.  You won't be disappointed.
