For all those who play both roller and ice hockey, transitioning between one and the other is a challenge. Everything from skating to the feel of the puck is radical different. Bauer has attempted to bridge the gap with the Bauer Slivvver Roller Hockey Puck.
Most sticks are designed for shooting and handling ice pucks, so roller player may not completely benefit from the amount of potential energy stored in the shaft.
Traditional ice pucks weight about 6 oz, while roller pucks weight about 3.5 oz. The Slivvver clocks in at about 4.4 oz. So you will get the best of both world when it comes to Bauer’s new puck. The heavier design will prevent the puck rolling on its edge as well as bouncing, a common occurrence in roller.
Recently the collegiate roller hockey league, the NCRHA, has made the Bauer Slivvver the official puck of the league. So far there has been a lot of positive comments regarding the pucks coming from the league.
