Made in Canada Pucks

Recommended Posts

Does anybody know where to order Sher-wood/InGlasCo 960 or 965 Canadian pucks? I can find the Slovakian ones all over the place.

I edited my original post to clarify. I'm not sure Howie's are Sher-wood/InGlasCo 960 or 965.

 

I don't imagine there's more than one company making pucks in Canada these days. Howie's say they are made in Canada, pretty good bet they are from inGlasCo but I guess you'd have to call them to confirm. I usually buy mine by the bucket at Canadian Tire, which now owns Sherwood, but the InGlasCo piece wasn't part of the deal as far as I know. I'll have to check and see what country's pucks are being sold there next time I'm in the store.

I spoke with Howie himself today, their pucks are sourced from Europe. He’s sending me a couple as a sample. I guess all or most of the NCAA D1 teams use them.

I'll admit to NEVER even thinking about what brand a puck is, so what makes some better than others?

Serious question.

Better flavor?

Our local rink banned the usage of a specific type of cheap European puck, as they shattered way more glass than any other. So while the dimensions and weight might all be more or less the same (meaning within the specs), the quality of materials used / manufacturing / composition can still be different between manufacturers, which results in different behavior (chipping, brittleness, ...) at different temperatures.

Pure Hockey sells a bucket of 18 InGlasCo pucks. I believe they are 960's, but can confirm later. 

I would highly doubt they are Canadian 960’s but it would be awesome if you checked. I’d bet they are 965’s IF they are even Canadian. I bought a bucket from Pure and they were InGlasCo Slovakian pucks.

Not all but some European manufacturers use tires as one source of rubber. This means small rocks and other stuff can make their way into the final puck. As the puck wears away a rock can be exposed and that will break the glass really easy.

Our rink got some cheap pucks a few years ago that chipped and split very easily. I'm not sure what exactly made them different, but they were really bad.

Pure's plain pucks were Rubena, distributed through A&R.

To the OP - no need to highlight your text in black. 

I didn’t highlight anything...

Your text was white on a black background. We received two tickets about it. Perhaps you may not know how you did it, but I corrected it. 

It was nothing I did on purpose. I haven’t messed with the text formatting. No worries.

Interesting read.  I never would have thought there was such a difference.

Me too. Never thought much about it. I just shoot 'em and pass 'em.
