Sniper's Edge Shooting Tarp Review
Shooting is a very important skill to practice on the ice and at home. The only problem is that a lot of players do not have the appropriate area to practice shooting at home. Parents are sometimes worries about the damage that the pucks may cause as this can cost a lot of money.
One solution is to provide an area for a child to practice shooting, and a great product is a shooting tarp also called the Sniper's Edge.
The Sniper's Edge is a very big tarp that can be hung in a garage or basement to catch and stop pucks. It was designed to reduce the damage caused by stray pucks and give children and adults a target to shoot at.
$209.95 for the 7' by 16' model & $229.95 for the 8' by 16' model.
The Sniper's Edge uses a rubber / plastic type material that appears to be very durable. The tarp also has a goaltender and net painted on to recreate the on-ice situation of shooting on a goaltender. The Sniper's Edge also features five pockets and a back pouch that will collect pucks. Every time a player gets the puck in the pocket the puck will be collected in the back pouch.
Close Look at the Sniper's Edge Shooting Tarp
The Sniper's Edge comes with eyelets at the top and a pocket all along the bottom to insert a rod or dowelling in to help it hang properly. The eyelets appear to be fastened securely on an area of the tarp that has been doubled up and double stiched. To set up the tarp, you just have to use ropes or bungee cords and you can install it in your basement or garage.
The material looks very durable and hey have used double stiching throughout the entire tarp. From the looks of the tarp it can hold up to a lot of pucks.
I couldn't find any big faults with the product.
Big tarp and fair price for the size you get
Goalie and net printed on the tarp gives the player targets to shoot for
Pockets in the tarp make great targets and makes shooting more fun
A great way to reduce damage
Will encourage kids to shoot the puck more and improve their shots.
