Hockey Sticks

When you're just starting in hockey, it's important to choose the right stick. Not all sticks are created equal, and there are a few things you'll want to keep in mind when making your selection. Here are a few tips on how to choose the perfect first hockey stick.

Which Hockey Stick Is Right for Me?

There is no one "best" hockey stick for everyone. The best hockey stick for you depends on your playing style and preferences. Some things to consider when choosing a hockey stick include the following: Stick length, Stick flex, Blade pattern, Grip

The right hockey stick length is important, as it can affect your shooting, passing, and stick-handling abilities. A too-short hockey stick will make it difficult to control the puck, while a hockey stick that is too long can cause you to lose balance and control. It is important to find the right hockey stick length for your playing style.

Stick flex is important because it affects the power and accuracy of your shots. It is generally recommended that beginners use a stick with a lower flex number (around 40-50), while more experienced players may prefer a higher flex number (60 or above).

The blade pattern refers to the curvature of the hockey stick's blade. Blade patterns can vary considerably, and different patterns can provide different advantages in terms of shooting and stick handling. It is generally recommended that beginners choose a hockey stick with a simpler blade pattern, while more experienced players may prefer a more complex pattern.

Some hockey sticks come with a textured grip on the shaft which can provide better control when stick handling. Others have a smooth shaft which can be easier to grip when your hands are sweaty. Ultimately, it is a matter of personal preference which type of grip you prefer.

When choosing a hockey stick, it is important to try it out and see how it feels in your hands. It is also a good idea to ask for advice from a coach or experienced player. They can help you choose a stick that is suitable for your level of play and playing style. Need more help? Check out this guide on Choosing the right Hockey Stick for you!
