The MoveMaster hockey pucks sell for around $35. When you buy them you get three pucks, and each puck is specifically designed to help you in a different way. Let's look at all three pucks, how they are designed, and how they actually worked.
During our testing of the Muscle Puck we found that it is very easy to stickhandle. The extra size makes it less challenging than a regular puck, and after about 5 minutes of stickhandling we did notice the weight was giving our forearms a bit of a workout. We decided that a big puck would be great for a beginner hockey player who tends to fumble the puck. Starting with a big heavy puck will help the muscles form patterns and learn the proper movements
Stickhandling with this puck is a lot of fun, and much more challenging than using a regular puck. The smaller size makes it harder to control, and the light weight allows a player to quickly move the puck from side to side.
We practiced with the pucks on a hockey shooting pad and on smooth pavement and they worked great. We found that they work the best on a smooth surface, so we definitely recommend a hockey shooting pad. After extended use there were only superficial scratches and light rubs on the pucks. We did not shoot the pucks at all because the packaging said that they are not for shooting.
Overall we enjoyed the MoveMaster pucks. There are other products on the market that offer different weights, but the unique aspect of the MoveMaster pucks is the different sizes. The combination of the varying weights and sizes will continue to challenge hockey players as their stickhandling and puck control abilities improve. Players who can already dangle may not get much out of this puck set, but if you are a beginner player, or you want to develop quick, soft hands, we recommend the MoveMaster pucks
The two downfalls for the pucks would be the price, which is around $40.00 and that they are not for shooting. $40.00 is a bit pricey, but the way I see it, if you learn and develop skills than the money is well spent. I remember buying a set of videos on how to stickhandle for $100 when I was 15, and I still use the moves I learned to this day. I love scoring goals, and I don't miss the $100 one bit, so if you are actually going to use the pucks then they are worth it.
As far as shooting, I think the best thing for shooting is a hockey puck, and the weighted hockey pucks with the orange rubber.
There are a lot of things I like about the MoveMaster pucks. Some things you can find in other training aids like the weight differences, but the one unique aspect is the size differences, to give you increasing levels of difficulty. I will list the positive aspects of the pucks below
