Hockey stick

Purchased for my daughter for school hockey. The stick is well made, a good weight, brightly coloured so perhaps it won't get lost and most importantly, I have a happy daughter

Good stick

Nice stick. Used a couple of times now and handles well. Not keen on the feel of the grip but that’s easy to cover.

Thanks for taking the time to write this review! We are proud of our first range of carbon sticks that we launched under the Kipsta name. Now under Korok and Dita we have a wide range of sticks available meeting all needs. The low bow with 50% carbon is great for control as you said here.


For the grip we would recommend the Dita Chamois grip which is regarded by many as the gold standard, available online and in store.


We hope the season is going well for you!

Soft feel, good power

This is a great stick for players developing their game. The weight is nice, you can feel the addition of carbon, the bow is great for 3D skills and tricks! Incredible bargain for the price!

CROSSE GAZON HOCKEY

Joueur débutant en gazon , je n'ai pas testé beaucoup de crosse . Cependant je suis rès satisfait de celle ci . Je suis passé d'une GRAYS en bois à ce stick et j'ai senti la différence aussitôt . Elle absorbe bien les chocs , les coups sont puissants. Super rapport qualité prix. Pour 60 euros difficle de trouver mieux je pense.

ottimo bastone

un bastone leggero e robusto a un ottimo prezzo

Ottimo rapporto qualità/prezzo.

Qualità del bastone del tutto inaspettato. Premettendo che si sta parlando sempre di un bastone del valore di circa 40€, il prodotto si presenta nel suo baricentro perfettamente bilanciato nonostante il suo peso

What are hockey sticks made of?

While hockey sticks were traditionally made from wood (oak, mulberry), today most sticks (and especially the most technical) are made from composites (fiberglass, carbon fiber and Aramid fiber; Kevlar is the brand name of a type of Aramid). Sticks may also be 100% wood, in wood with fiberglass reinforcements, 100% fiberglass, in fiberglass with a fairly high carbon content (often 5%-10% Aramid when the percentage of carbon is very high).

Features and uses

Fiberglass is harder and more rigid, lightweight and abrasion resistant than wood. It will give you more power but less control and a greater feeling of hardness. Carbon is lighter and more rigid still, providing even greater power and less control if your technical skills aren't at a high level. Aramid is used in addition to carbon in the shaft to dampen vibrations. It may also be used in the heel for increased abrasion resistance.

How is a composite stick made?

A stick made of composites is made of several sheets of fiber rolled around a hollow core, which is made of 1 or more channels. The mix of components, the number of fiber layers and the core structure vary in the different sections of the stick and from one stick to another. The percentage of carbon alone does not tell you very much about a stick's features.

Choosing the right composition

Children just learning to play should opt for wooden sticks. As they improve, they can switch to a fiberglass stick and later to a stick with a reasonable percentage of carbon. Adult beginners can start out with a fiberglass stick. Adults at an intermediate or advanced level should choose a carbon percentage that corresponds to their playing style (a balance of control and power).

What is the bow on a stick?

A hockey stick is not straight but rather has a curve (called the bow). The curve varies by its maximum height (the maximum vertical space between a stick set on a flat surface and that surface) and the place where this height is at its maximum, measured from the tip of the head (called the bow position). Traditionally, sticks had a bow height of around 15 mm and a bow position around halfway up the stick.

Types of bows

A "standard bow" is when the bow height is around 17 mm to 20 mm and the bow position is at 300 mm. A "mid bow" stick generally has a bow height of around 23 mm to 24 mm with a bow position at 300 mm. For a "low bow" stick, these measurements are usually 24 mm to 25 mm and 250 mm. An "extra low bow" stick will be 24 mm to 25 mm and 200 mm.

Choosing the right bow

Beginners should choose a standard bow. Intermediate or advanced players looking mainly for ball control, passing and shooting should choose a mid bow. Advanced players who dribble a lot and have strong 3D skills and perfect control during quick play can go for a low bow stick. For drag flicking, choose an extra low bow.

Stick weights

According to FIH rules, the maximum stick weight for field hockey is 1 lb 10 oz (737 g). Most adult sticks (sizes 36.5"-37.5") weigh between 1.1 lbs and 1.3 lbs. Children's sticks start at 14.1 oz. Stick weights may vary by 0.7 oz to 1.1 oz even for the same model due to manufacturing processes.

Why is balance important?

For sticks of equal weight, the way the weight is distributed across the stick is what makes the difference. The balance is the gravity point as measured from the tip of the head. A balance closer to the handle will feel light. This makes handling easier. A balance closer to the head (called head heavy) will feel like there's more weight in the hands. This increases the stick's power.

Choosing the right weight and balance

If you need maneuverability, choose a lightweight stick with a higher balance. If you're looking for power, choose a heavy stick with a lower balance.

Which size?

Stick sizes are given in inches. 1" = 2.54 cm. For adults, the standard size is 36.5". Certain sticks are available in 37.5", for greater reach and increased power. They are for very advanced players. A player over 6'1" may also choose a 37.5" stick, but they should make sure the other features (composition, bow, etc.) are suited to their level.

Did you know?

According to FIH rules, a field hockey stick may not be longer than 41" (105 cm).

Basic tip

The right stick is one with the right size, composition (an internal structure), bow, weight and balance for you.
