Pucks should only be used on ice.
For starters hockey players never shoot or pass a motionless puck.
Using pucks off ice develops improper muscle memory. It takes 100g of force to move a puck off ice and 28g to move a puck on ice.
You don’t need big muscles to shoot or pass in hockey. You need speed & finesse.
The intense shock waves from slap-shots and snap-shots damage wrists, elbows and shoulder joints, permanently.
