Odd question about shooting pads

Recommended Posts

I’ve just got me a full size goal, and this evening I was taking shots with biscuits, using my shooting pad. To be honest snap shots made a hell of a racket when the stick hit the pad, and I’m concerned I’m annoying the neighbours. 

Anyway, the pad is made from six of these:

Are these known to be noisy, or would a one piece plastic board be just as bad?

Howdy,

You mentioned you were taking shots with biscuits...  Long shot, but the Green Biscuit I have is noticeably more noisy than a noraml puck, FWIW.

As for the tiles, no direct experience with those.  If you thought it was the tiles clacking together, maybe take a couple snapshots off just one and see if the noise was different?  Seems unlikely to me, but the tiles I have use a different locking system so ??

Shooting pucks is noisy.  They're noisy in a rink, they're noisy in a garage, they're noisy in a driveway.  No real way to get around it...  Changing the shooting pad isn't going to do much.

Thanks all, oh well, I’d better get some ear defenders so I can’t hear the neighbours shouting. 🙂
