I was in the exact situation as you a year ago, I didn't want to spend a lot of money on a little shooting sheet from a hockey store. I did some research and found out that the sheets in hockey shops are made out of HDPE (high density polyethylene). I went to lowes and home depot and they didn't have them so I went to a local plastics shop. As it was smaller and local, they were eager to help and knew exactly what I was talking about right away. They ended up having like a 6x4.5 sheet that they sold me for like $45. I think the ones at the hockey shops are a lot thicker, which increases the price. Mine is just a couple cm thick and has held up incredibly well. The green biscuit on it will make it feel as close to ice as you'd get, without adding anything to it like water, snow, ect. of course. Hope this helps.
