Is there such a thing as a "fast dissolving" chlorine puck or tablet? Not that I want any of course, but a friend of mine swears she has used a fast dissolving type but can't remember what it was called. They did come from a Doubhboy dealer though if that helps. Thanks for your answers.

Yes!

They are cal-hypo not trichlor.

They CAN NOT! be used in a trichlor feeder!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just wondering, why do you want fast dissolving sticks?

As I said, I DON'T! Just curious and wondering if she knew what she was talking about! How fast are we talking about as opposed to a Trichlor puck just in a skimmer or in a floater?

Cal-hypo tablets are very rare. They dissolve quite quickly, usually well under half an hour. They make special tablet feeders designed for cal-hypo tablets but hardly anyone uses them.
