Choosing the right stick can be difficult with many sticks in the range, different shapes and models. Over the next few blog posts we are going to help you breakdown the range and pick what stick is best for you.
It is important to remember that the hockey player and stick must be regarded as a partnership, without one the other is useless, this said the stick does not make the player, the player can make the stick. There is no ‘best stick’ but there is a ‘the best stick for a given player’.
In the Gryphon range we have many different models and up to 5 different shapes, this makes it complicated if you don’t know what you are looking for but over the next few blog posts we will help you breakdown each model and shape and pick the best stick for you.
The reason for the large range is to offer a stick that is best for any player who chooses Gryphon. The Tour is technically the best and most complex stick, however, this does not mean it is the model that everyone should pick, with the Tour Range we also have 5 shapes, so picking the best stick for you cannot be done simply on the price of the stick or what you see your Gryphon Idols playing with.
To pick the correct stick you have to understand your playing style and how a sticks shape and make-up influences that playing style, this enables you to get the most out of the stick and simply enjoy playing hockey. That is the most important thing at the end of the day.
We will be going into greater detail on what each shape and each model means and how they impact your technique and execution, the areas we will be looking at are:
- The Shape
- The Model
- Weight / Balance
Keep an eye out for our posts coming up where we will delve deeper into the ins and outs of these three areas. If you need some advice before then, post a comment below.
