Save Your Stick with this Roll-up Skill Pad that Mimics the Feel of Real Ice!

As is the case with off-ice shooting practice, when working on your stickhandling you need a good slick surface to work on. This is the case for two reasons:

  1. To save your stick: Sticks are expensive these days, and you want to be using your game stick for your off-ice stickhandling and shooting drills.
  2. To mimic the ice surface: It’s no secret that pucks don’t slide well on concrete. You want to work on a surface that will act and feel as close to real ice as possible.

HockeyShot’s Roll-up Shooting & Skill Pad will accomplish both of these objectives. It’ll protect your stick, and give you a smooth, slick surface on which your pucks will slide and feel just like they would on real ice!

This surface can be used as a shooting pad or a skill pad. It will work really well either way, but I actually prefer it as a skill pad to be used for stickhandling because it is so big. This skill pad is 4′ by 8′ which gives you tons of room to work on your stickhandling and passing skills.

As the name suggests, this skill pad is made of a flexible material, which means you can roll it up and take it with you or store it. While this is great for portability, the one drawback about this feature is that it takes a little time for it to lay down flat after you’ve had it rolled up. It eventually does stay flat, just leave it on a hard, flat surface whenever possible.

You can pick up the Roll-up Shooting & Skill Pad as a stand alone item, or as part of the Extreme Passing Kit (one timer model).

All in all, this is a fantastic pad that is durable, and versatile enough that you can get many different uses out of it!
