Passau Sliding Polish

Recommended Posts

Anyone used this Sliding Polish from our friends at Passau ( @GoalieTimmy33 ) ?

http://www.passauhockey.com/en/online-store/sliding-polish-354

After using the 1S, I am pretty obsessed with letting the pads make me slide faster and how much easier it makes the game. I would love to throw this on my GNetik's and see if I can get that same sliding performance. . .

Never used it myself but at Tomy's old board, a few guys mentioned they had used it and the polish worked really well.

I use it, and my kids use it.  My pads are black, no colour change.  Kids' pads are white, no colour change.  Really doubt it would affect tan.

As to efficacy, I find it really good for about 2 ice times, then it fades off.  Also depends on ice conditions.....on wet ice, it works very well.  On dry ice, it is a moderate help at best.  This of course is my experience and ymmv.

I have used shoe waterproofing spray and clear shoe polish. It enhances the slide for certain, but temporarily. I first started doing it on my Vaughn California Tan (as that product really needs SnoSeal to prevent it from wearing and sticking to the ice). I did that in addition to the SnoSeal on those pads, and it not only helped them slide better, but kept the wear down to a minimum. 

I see no need for a specialised product when other products that you can get from the shoe care aisle in the store work just as well.

This rabbit suspects that the Passau Slide polish is not much more than that, frankly. This is where a side by each comparison would be helpful.

Will you do the honors of a "slide off" for us?

First time I put it on, I went to play and the rink was pretty wet.  I set up on one side of the net, took a few slides and did a butterfly across the crease to clear the water.  Darn near ended up in the corner, but I think it was the rather loud WEEEEEEEEEE that got me the odd looks.

Caved and ordered it. If it works that well, I don't think applying it every other skate would kill me. 

I skated 5 times a week, I could see this being a nuisance

Hi all.  Thanks for the interest in our sliding polish.  It's an excellent product, especially in the summer when ice is rougher.  I actually did a video of how to apply it in our Passau Hockey FB Group.  It will not discolor camel jenrpro (not that "bucky" is different than camel jenpro).  As always, feel free to reach out to me with questions - Tim.McCarthy@PassauHockey.com

I couldn't find the video on the Passau page. Is there any special trick to applying it?

Nope.  Wipe it on with the applicator, let it sit for a few minutes and wipe off the excess with a cloth.  Easy peasy.

What's the point of wiping off the excess? A little extra causes harm of some sort?

No, it will just get all over your hands/bag/car etc etc.  And it will pick up ANY particulate matter your pads touch.

Now- if someone could get a hold of the stuff Clark Griswold had that made that sled fly like it did in the movie- THAT would be cool!!!

TGN it's like brushing your teeth - paste on brush rub and rinse can't get any simpler than that!

Seriously when are you finally going to try it?

Used it today. I'll try to write up some something more in depth... 

but a quick summary is that it's painless to apply and works. It's not OD1N by any stretch, but it's better than stock materials. Unless you'd be lazy about applying it every couple skates, I can't see a reason against using it. I also am willing to speculate it might act as a protective coating and add some life in high wear areas over the long term

I also tried it so here is my 2 game review., the most tough part........... closing the box! seriously, took 2 of us 15min.  But yeah.

Im using ccm Premier pads, It easy to apply, as for the feeling while using it... water on top of ice... very slippery.  Felt great. I had great distance on my push/slide. 

 After game we hung out a bit in the parking lot in summer... next skate... it felt mostly gone.. back to basic  bit disappointed by that but I also suspect the heat+sun combo likely killed it. (and it was a 2h hockey game).  At first use, it was awesome.  

Solid 8/10

I found the first few uses I had to re-apply more often.  I think it takes a few applications for a "build up" to occur and then you can scale back on how often you apply.  I have played most of the summer on one application and it's just starting to lose slipperiness.
