Since the game was born, the shape, weight and design of the hockey stick has evolved majorly, from the solid wood dense weapon, to the more ergonomic, lightweight missile, in a range of colours, shapes and from a variety of different brands.  Slazenger believe that they’re at the forefront of hockey equipment innovation, and they’ve been working cialis canada on a fantastic new design to their brand new stick: Slazenger Aero.  Although there are strict guidelines around the legal weight and shape of the stick, the Slazenger Aero looks as if it’s not only cutting edge, but a stick of the future.

I went on their website, and this is what they’ve had to say about the new Aero.

Overview

Slazenger’s unique offset handle design is more inline with the sweet spot than conventional style sticks. This increases the Moment of Inertia (MOI) for less torsional deflection on ball impact. The offset style delivers greater ease and control whilst dribbling and decreases the stick angle to the ground when defending and ball stopping.

Each stick is available in two lengths 36.5” and 37.5”

Technical

QUAD COREOur industry redefining, patent pending Quad Core technology is a first for hockey giving the stick up to 15% greater lateral stiffness and torque resistance to deliver a superior solid feel and power in a lighter weight package.

AERO PROFILELower coefficient of drag than competitor sticks allows the Slazenger Aero to cut through the air faster whilst using less energy. The angled rear face provides a thicker front edge for greater stopping power and the thinner reverse edge helps with reverse-stick hitting.

SQUOVAL HANDLEThe Squoval shaped handle provides better grip and comfort whilst increasing the strength of the carbon structure in the handle for inherently greater torsional and lateral stiffness for enhanced control and feel.
