Inline Hockey Pucks

Hopefully this hasn't been answered already.
Which hockey pucks are the best for inline?
And where can I buy the best value of pucks?
Looking to get a bunch so I can start practicing again in a outdoor rink I play at.

All depends on what surface you're playing on. As for outdoors, I'd prolly go with some Franklin pucks. They're really cheap ($4 or so at Dick's) and they have nipples so they slide pretty well.

My personal preference are the PROPUCKs. Nice weight and feel to it. The IDS pro shot is next, but I've always felt it was too center heavy. However, as long as the pegs aren't worn down (they're replaceable) they slide really well.

Lately, I've been using the sonic pucks for games and I'm starting to really like those. They feel a lot like the propuck, but for some reason they bounce a lot more.

Inlinewarehouse.com has a deal where if you buy like 6, it's cheaper.

If you're playing indoor, you can't go wrong with either rocket or sonic pucks. Where I was playing, I preferred using sonic pucks. Seemed like rocket pucks had a tendency to roll on the surface I was playing on.

proshot pucks for indoor hockey, for outdoor you can use the proshots but the pegs on the puck will wear down faster and the puck has a higher chance of cracking and breaking

Roller hockey sucks but when I've played, I prefer the propuck. It slides well, it's easier to settle down from rolling(IDS pucks seem to roll forever) and they have some nice weight to them. I think most ice hockey players would prefer a propuck.

IDS, sonic and rocket all seem to want to roll on end a lot more, which is very annoying.

A little off topic, but does Inlinewarehouse ship to Canada on RBK Inline skates?

I have a sonic puck definitely wants to flip up and doesn't slide all that well when stick handling

What's a good puck for training on a tennis court (concrete surface)? The training will be mostly stickhandling.

Just remember that it is exclusively for stickhandling. You may be able to pass it a few times, but shots are out of the question.

On sport court I think IDS Pro Shot pucks perform best. Outdoors Pro Pucks are best and will also last longer.
