For discerning players who want the best – these sticks are state of the art using rubberised ‘squidgyness’ and texture to create grip levels that put everything else to shame. All high wear areas are hard plastic, but all control and grip surfaces contain differing thicknesses of squidgy material to grip the puck, your palm and your fingers. This squidgyness can be ordered in medium or soft and works like formula one tyres. Soft grips better, but wears out faster as well. Medium squidgy is similar to the rubber on a car tyre, whereas soft is more like a bicycle inner tube. Accept no shabby substitutes.
