The stick
buyers guide...

Let's break down the complexities of hockey sticks. Making it easier for you to decide which to buy.

Things to consider when choosing your stick...

The shape

Mid bow? Low Bow? Extra Low Bow....? Flat Head? Concave? Extra Toe? What does all this mean and does it make a difference?

The model

Shapes will vary across each brand's range, so you need to consider which composition / construction / lay-up of the stick is right for you.



Weight & Balance

Ok... so force = Mass x Accelaration... but how does that apply to a stick and it's balance point?

Weight & Balance

There is a lot of science about weight and balance of an object and how that impacts distance or force. Force = Mass x Acceleration... The weight and balance is all about how the stick feels for a player.

The Shape

Companies will regularly offer the same stick shape in a range of models, adding more confusion to the buying process, so we need to consider which model is right for you and that is a consideration around the composition / construction / lay-up of the stick.
