Looking for a new roller hockey puck.

IDS pucks are too light and bounce way too much on our rink surface (roll-on). We use the Pro pucks but they drag a lot and are very slow.

Any suggestions?

23 views and no responses.

I'm guessing everyone indoors uses IDS and outdoors uses Pro Pucks.

those are basically the samt thing as the IDS. I really don't think you can find two better pucks than the IDS and the Propuck

from what I hear the flypuck sucks something aweful. I've never used one because I'm a big fan of the propuck.

I like the feel of the propuck but it drags alot, compared to the IDS on an indoor surface.

Our rink isn't the best surface, not quite as bad as plain asphalt but not far from it.

When I was in Florida I had the chance to play in their Extreme local Outdoor league. They used a puck called a ZeroG. I thought it acted as close to an ice puck as any other I had tried. Looks a lot like the IDS but a slightly different design for its glide pegs and a venting design that is supposed to make them behave more predictably.

Which do you prefer the ones that look like pucks or the balls? I am starting to play and I am not sure which one to get. Any help?

The IDS pucks are lighter than the Mach 1.

Millenium Pro Puck

Best outdoor puck you can get. Use the IDS for indoor gym/roller hockey.

tried those and found they spent more time flipping or rolling than flat. Didnt like them at all but then again the surface wasnt the greatest...basically a parking lot that they sectioned off and put boards around.

I've never had that problem with a propuck. They settle down nicely and fly flat... They play the closest to an ice puck on ice that i think is possible off ice.

millenium pro puck is the best puck for outdoor roller. i condition on an outdoor rink in asheville, using the pro puck, then play ice in greenville and i dont lose my puck handling skills/shooting skills.

I just don't like the drag of the propuck on our rink. It sits flat it just drags pretty bad.

Going to cast my vote for the Millennium as well. I was using them in my league here in NY when they were still in Prototype phase many years ago. On asphalt or concrete, not the greatest, but on a roll-on surface, its the closest you can get to ice-like conditions.

I used the ZeroG this weekend indoors and it worked well, better than the IDS or the ProPuck.

I'll use it outside soon and report back.

Thanks for the tip Mike.
