Hockey Stick BLADE PATTERNS Explained

Below is a chart of all of the curves available for your stick.  These blades are the most popular ones used in hockey at both the recreational and NHL levels.   

The curve of a blade is basically where the curve begins.   For example, a heel curve has the curve most concentrated at the heel as opposed to the middle or toe of the blade.  The curve depth is how deep it goes.

The face of a blade.  Closed face blade patterns cup over the top of the puck whereas an open face blade angles back away from the puck.  The majority of blades are open.

 The lie of a blade represents the angle of the blade in relation to the shaft and therefore how the blade will rest on the ice.   Higher lies are typically better for taller players or if you skate upright whereas lower lies are for those that are smaller or have a tendency to skate more bent over.  You’ve got the right lie when the middle of your blade is flat on the ice rather than resting on the heel or toe.

Hockey Stick FLEX Weight Chart

A hockey stick’s flex is basically how much the shaft will bend.  Generally speaking, the lower the flex, the easier it is to bend the shaft and create a sling shot type effect.   This is due to the potential energy that is created and released.   The more the stick flexes before release, the greater the velocity and power.  Mathematically speaking, the flex rating  is basically the amount of force needed to bend the stick one inch.  For example, a 75 FLEX stick requires 75 lbs of force to bend it 1 inch.  If you cut your stick, then this will increase your flex since it’s harder to flex.   The player weight table below is just a rough guideline.  Many players will prefer a stick with more or less flex than the chart below outlines.  If you can’t decide between two flex ratings, we always recommend going with the lower flex.d

Hockey Stick KICK POINT Comparison

Most high end hockey sticks come with either a low kick point or a mid kick point.   We let you choose!  So what exactly does the kick point position do?  Low kick points allow you to get the shot off quicker.  It allows you to load your shaft quickly but will sacrifice some of the power.   On the flip side, mid kick points allow you to get more of your body weight and power into a shot, but will take longer to load and release.  If you like to dangle and get the puck off your stick quickly, then a low kick point is probably for you.  If your game involves a lot of power, go for the mid kick point.


Hockey Stick GRIP LAYER

Your carbon stick can come with or without a grip layer coating.   Grip layers allow your hands to stay in place easier when releasing a shot resulting in more power because of less slipping.  However, some people prefer not having any grip coating because it allows your hands to slide up and down the shaft easier when stick handling.  We found the grip layer on many sticks is too tacky.  We feel the grip coating we use allows you to stick handle easily yet has just enough of a grip to prevent your hands from slipping when taking shots.  Nevertheless, both options are available.
