I'm working on releasing my snapper in stride, which is great but won't let you flex as much. The best thing is to take your time and do a nice, slow full load but that is often impractical for wrist and snappers in game.

I've figured out a big tip in the snap shot, really EXPLODE through the motion. That really helps a lot, although it tires me a lot faster.

I'm thinking about building a shooting area in my backyard like the one Matt Duchene has. Anyone know of a good surface to shoot off of? I know they sell this practice ice (http://www.thehockeyshop.com/Merchan...e=E_TrainEquip) stuff but is it good?

Just wanted to give you guys an update, my snapper has gotten pretty good. I can take a nice one when gliding in the offensive zone. Lots of practice was the key. I actually practiced the motion a LOT without the puck, just while wearing sneakers in my living room and it has helped a bundle!

You might want to save your money and do what I did:

Find a nice large and sturdy piece of cardboard (preferably the glossy kind) or 2. I used an old TV box and cut out the two largest panels, taped them back-to-back with duct tape and there you go, strong, wont bend, light and cheap. This is safe with tape obviously.

That's good to hear, snappers are pretty useful in games.

Thanks. I've gotten compliments on it lately. It's become my favorite shot and is now pretty respectable in terms of accuracy and velocity. However, I have found ways to vary my release so the deception is "confusing" according to one goalie friend of mine
