Green Biscuit Review

Hey guys, I know you guys mentioned the green biscuit in another thread so I thought I would do a review of it. Here is a video I made for the Green biscuit review. Should give you a pretty good idea of what it is like.
I also did a full review here - Green Biscuit Review

I added the product page for canada and the states in the OP

I think it is great for off ice stickhandling, only downfall is you can not shoot with it, but I like to use regular pucks for shooting anyways so not a big deal for me.

Got mine a week or so ago.

Works good, (not exactly a puck on real ice, but probably the next best thing)

I use it on a skill pad type thing, I've never tried on concrete, but I doubt it works any better.

It doesn't actually flip over while stickhandling, but it can lift like you see in the video that beavboyz posted, it will just leave the ground, and that'll mess you up a bit. But I guess that happens with normal pucks a little bit as well.

Downfall: THIS THING IS SO LOUD!

I like it because I have a long diveway (blacktop) and we can pass back and forth. it is loud though. but you can suacer pass it, it lands flat. you can keep it on the ground and it stays flat. and you can really pass it hard so you can work on soft hands and cupping the puck when accepting the pass.

sounds like plan, had dad machine a stainless steel puck.. knurled and all, that was about 12 oz to stick handle with and its working really well my handling is a lot better, but pretty much works on carpet, and a flat surface like a skill pad or concrete.

Here's a written review of the Green Biscuit that includes weight and surface comparison if anyone is interested.

the green biscuit is the best off ice stickhandling puck I've ever used. It works well even on rough surfaces. If you shoot it though, you'll end up breaking it. Firsthand experience.

It will take some abuse but not a lot. I shoot it off the boards a bit, but I decided for some reason to slap it while on edge and it shattered on the cross bar.

HAha yeah guys, not meant for shooting. Stickhandling and passing is amazing with this thing though

My friend shot it when we first broke it out, luckily he hit the net so nothing happened.

We played with it quite a bit, we had fly pucks as well but kept going back to the GB! It takes a fair amount of abuse, you can see in the video we were passing fairly hard back and foreth and we did a bunch of saucer passes with it (not in the video though)
