What type of sticks
Wood – perfect for starting off hockey and young players Under 10s
Fiberglass – man made product which is the basis of most “Composite” sticks for Under 14s
Carbon – This material gives the stick its power, making the stick stiffer the more there is in the stick for the Senior Players
The Bow of the stick (the stick bend from the handle to the toe) benefits every area of the game equally, while a more dramatic bow (Low and Extreme Low) creates a more dramatic head angle, to assist controlling the ball, lifting the ball, performing aerials, and drag flicking.
Mid Bow – Beginner players
Low Bow – Mid-High-level players
Extreme Bow – Advanced players
This is personal preference and attacking players tend to go for Lighter sticks whilst defending players tend to go for medium.
