We strive to offer our customers a positive and memorable experience while shopping with us with a goal of providing a knowledgeable service and offering equipment that will increase both performance and participation with hockey in the local and regional area. Hockey sticks in particular have many differing components dependent on ability level and position. These differences can have a large effect on a player’s progression and performance. Hockey Stick composition is one of these areas with, Carbon Fibre sticks which are thin, more costly and made with very light strands of carbon often intertwined into sheets or strips. Carbon Fibre is used to generate the stiffness in hockey sticks which in turn provides the highest amount of power being transferred from the stick to the ball. Another material used is Fibreglass, this is inexpensive and simple to control, fibreglass is made from fine strands of glass and is often woven together and combined with a resin to increase strength and stiffness but more often applied to wooden sticks to limit wear to areas such as the head. Sizing of hockey sticks has a massive impact on the progression and performance of a hockey player if the wrong size is being used so if you need help, give us a call or email info@whirlwindsports.com and we'll be happy to help you.
