What Replacement Pucks & Pushers are Suitable for My Table?

Replacement Air Hockey Pucks

Air hockey pucks come in a range of sizes, each designed to suit a particular kind of table.

The size of the puck directly influences the style of game. Smaller, lighter pucks are easier to move, so these are popular on home air hockey tables aimed at children and families. But heavier, larger pucks travel faster, as they carry more momentum. So they're ideally suited to larger tables with longer playfields and higher game speeds, like purpose-made commercial air hockey tables.

If you are buying replacements for your table, you should carefully check the puck size and order the same one. This is because the goal mouths, internal puck chutes and other parts of the table are precisely machined for the size of puck that comes with the table, and a larger one could get jammed.

Buying smaller pucks is also not advised, because the fans and airflow are carefully balanced to give the standard puck the correct amount of lift. A smaller, lighter puck is likely to fly off the table, giving you a frustrating game.

Another point to note is that the puck should be replaced with one of a similar colour. Some goal detection sensors can fail to detect pucks that are a different colour to standard. This is another reason why it's always best to stick to original manufacturer equipment.

Replacement Air Hockey Pushers

Air hockey pushers, bats or mallets are an essential part of your game. This is how you control and shoot the puck, so your pushers need to be in good condition and ready to use.

They are designed to suit the table they come with. Taking into account airflow, fan power, game speed and the strength of the players, they will return shots with a minimum of mis-hits.

But you can upgrade your pushers to some of a similar size. Many people upgrade to gain the features of more expensive pushers, like shock-absorbing impact rings, more ergonomic handle designs and heavier weight.

You may find that the felt wears on the base of your pushers. If spare felts are available, they should be replaced, and if not, you need to buy some more pushers. See our range of replacement and upgraded air hockey pushers here.
