Having just got back from a game of inline hockey myself I thought I would tell you about a bargain on EZ-Goal practice hockey goals that I spotted at Costco in Docklands. Costco Australia have been importing these each year for the past few years and they usually get snapped up pretty quickly. This year is seems that Costco has brought a few too many in for their market and it is time to get them out the door.
Costco is selling the 6′ x 4′ EZ-Goal with backstop and corner targets for $99.97 at Costco in Docklands. I picked one of these up last year from Costco for about $125 and this year they were selling at Costco’s full price of $127.99. On EZ-Goal’s own website this kit costs US$179.99 (AU$195.27) and the best online price I can find today is at HockeyShot.com for US$149.95 (AU$162.68). Given the size an weight of the package, you don’t want to be shipping one of these to Australia on its own as it will cost you an arm and a leg.
As I mentioned, I have one of these units myself. Whilst is doesn’t get used any where near enough it is one sturdy unit but it can be a bit fiddly to set up initially. The backdrop system stops you sending those pucks sailing past the pipes and the side backdrops can be used as rebounders to practice your one-timers. I haven’t used the corner targets yet, but given my game today I think I should be setting those up ASAP!
Docklands only had about 10 or 15 of these left on Friday, so get in there soon if you want one. Let us know via the contact page if you have seen them at other Australian Costco locations, either at full price or the reduced price.
