Idéal pour jouer en famille, le soucis est que le stick s'abîme rapidement donc on voit moins le dessin...
J'utilise cette crosse depuis 1 an. Elle s'abîme vite mais remplie sa fonction. Je souhaitais.une nouvelle crosse ajustée à ma taille mais le prix a bcp augmenté et le stock ce fait rare. Dommage
Parfait pour les petits : solide, légère et motifs sympas.
Très bon pur mon petit fils qui n'avait encore jamais utilisé un stick de hockey au contraire de son grand-père
- 100% Wood
- 100% Polyurethane
Standard bow; weight: 12.3 oz in size 28"
Laminated mulberry wood (5 layers). Standard head. Sleeve and shaft diameter adapted to the child. Polyurethane (PU) grip (1.8 mm thick) for a good grip.
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).
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.
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.
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).
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Stick sizes are given in inches. 1" = 2.54 cm. For children, place the stick vertically with the head on the ground in front of the child (have them stand up straight). Choose a stick with a handle that comes up to the child's navel. For adults, the standard size is 36.5".
According to FIH rules, a field hockey stick may not be longer than 41" (105 cm).
The right stick is one with the right size, composition (an internal structure), bow, weight and balance for you.
