The only thing better than blasting some hockey pucks at the net is having four targets in each corner to really challenge yourself! There are a lot of hockey targets out there and all of them vary in price and quality. Today we are reviewing the EZ Goal corner targets.
This is where we give you a close-up look at the targets. We show you the design, material, and how they are supposed to work
We tested the EZ Goal targets out on the official EZ Goal net to give you an idea of how they fit and how well they work.
The EZ goal targets fit into any regulation size hockey net, they fit nicely into each corner, and stayed in place while I was shooting.
Shooting with the targets in the net was great. The targets fit nice and snug into each corner so if I snipe the inside post the puck will still go in the target, unlike some other targets. The targets have deep pockets so they can hold a lot of pucks. I hit the targets with some hard wrist shots and slapshots and they held up to everything. The targets are made of nylon and I know from experience that nylon meshing will wear-out after extended use so it will be interesting to see how long the targets hold.
The only downfall I could see is with the material. I know that nylon wears out after a lot of shooting, so I am going to bet that the targets will have some holes in them after a few thousand shots. This is only a problem if you use pucks, and if you have a good shot, but even then the targets will last for a while. If you are like me you will find ways to patch the holes.
We recommend these targets to anybody who is on a budget, and wants to improve their shooting accuracy, and make shooting pucks a bit more fun.
