Now i just need to purchase myself a goal so i can really get cracking with the shooting. Atleast i can attach some paper targets around the netting when i receive it, to ease my worst withdrawls from not being able to get on the ice.
I actually shoot into net as well, it is just like the nets on the amazon link. Getting netting for golf balls is actually a better idea though becuase it is dual purpose! I tried driving balls into my net and it goes right through
For light netting
The trick is to hang it loosely, so it gently slows the puck down, then there is barely any wear on the net. I have been hammering slapshots into my net for about a month now (I just pulled it out of the barn at my mom's place)
My netting is very light, I got it from a shoelace factory when I was 16 and paid way to much to have it custom made for a project I was doing. I am really happy with it's performance, I just hung it between two trees with some nails, works like a charm.
