In the living room with the PassMaster
This is a detailed look at the PassMaster hockey passing aid, keep an eye out for our full review coming soon.
The PassMaster is a hockey passing device that
can be used on or off the ice to help players improve their passing and shooting. The device is made with heavy metal in order to keep it from moving when receiving and rebounding passes. The rebounding device is a simple large elastic band that wraps around the metal posts. The PassMaster is a large triangle with three usable sides, which means three people can use it at once.
PassMaster Details – Out of the Box
The top part of the PassMaster is made of three pieces of long flat metal. The pieces measure 1/8th of an inch thick, two inches wide, and 25.5 inches long. The three pieces are joined together in a triangle shape and supported by three posts at each point.
In the box we also have a large rubber band, three felt like pads, and three spikes. The rubber band wraps around the three posts and you really have to reef on it to get it around the posts (reef: a slang word that means to “use excessive force”). The pads go on the bottom of the metal posts to protect your flooring and help the PassMaster stick and the spikes are optional to screw into the posts if you use the PassMaster on ice.
Material and Weight
The frame of the PassMaster is all metal and very sturdy feeling, the total weight being 10 pounds. The elastic band is made from high performance polymer which stands up great to every element (according to their website anyway). The band is fairly wide, just under an inch and a half and about a half inch bigger than the height of a hockey puck

This system cannot handle hard passes and the target does not challenge passing technique like Tape-2-Tape does. I have tried every kind of band or bungee cord system including the Passmaster and it seems like Tape-2-Tape is the only one that can handle hard passe (which is the only true test of passing/receiving technique). From my research, Tape-2-Tape is also the only one consistently used in the NHL, OHL and NCAA. I would certainly pass on the Passmaster and choose Tape-2-Tape.
