Hockey sticks can be classified as such because the force is between the fulcrum (wrist/elbow/shoulder) and the load (weight of the stick/ball).
The composite stick is the newest innovation in hockey stick technology advancement. They have a higher flex rating and are lighter in weight compared to wood and/or aluminum sticks.
Despite the fact that the integrity of the composite stick can be compromised with even minor nicks and cuts, most players choose them over wood because of their light weight and superior amount of flexibility the sticks provide which allows for greatly enhanced puck action. Composite sticks are also much more expensive.
Most hockey sticks have the weight somewhere on the shaft in grams. If you're looking to buy one, ask someone, all new sticks should have the weight printed on them. Not sure of the best way to weigh an old stick which doesn't have its weight printed on the shaft.
Better for what? A stick's weight is really a personal preference, as lighter ones are more suitable for dribbling and other skills where a heavier stick is more useful for hitting.
Composite Hockey sticks are sticks made from interwoven strands of fiberous materials such as carbon fiber. The insides are hollow making them light weight, but the interwoven construction allows for a flexible stick with as much strength as, if not more strength as a wooden one.
The lightest hockey stick weighs about 2 pounds for the wooden variety. Other metal sticks that are made out of titanium or aluminum weight about 1.75 pounds.
Ranges from stick to stick, and depends on the material type used for the stick. The composite sticks will be lighter due to their hollow core. Wood sticks are solid alll the way through which makes them heavier. Hope that helps.
The best kind of stick to purchase in field hockey is a composite stick. You may also buy a wooden one, but the composite sticks are heavier, making the ball go further when you hit it. However, composite sticks are more expensive. How do you know which are composite an which are wood? - It will either say it on the stick, or you will be able to tell by the weight of the stick. Composite sticks are a lot heavier.
Too many to list.There would be upwards of 50 hockey stick suppliers around the world. Each has several lines (taken to mean between 5 and 10, depending on the size and focus of the company), and each line usually has between 5 and 10 sticks - some with many more. Besides this, there are extras like goalkeeping sticks, of which most companies make two or three (on average) and choices in stick such as length and weight, and for ice hockey the curve as well. Basically, you are looking at ten thousand sticks in total.
A curved structure would be the arch-bridge
It ranges between approximately 385-500 grams. But there are also heavier sticks out there. Wooden sticks are often (but not always) heavier than the ones made out of newer materials such as composite, graphite or fiberglass <500 grams. The weight of a composite hockey stick is determined by it's chemical composition of fiberglass, aluminum, Graphite, Kevlar, and Titanium. There are also mixed wood/composite or wood/graphite sticks, that's known as half-composite sticks. These keep the feeling of traditional wood sticks, but also has some of the abilities of the newer materials. It's weight varies, but generally, they're lighter than pure wood stick, but heavier than pure composite.
Weight; composites are far lighter than wooden or woodcore sticks and for some positions, this is better. Even then, it is still a preference. Other than this, there are just as many people in favour of each; each is claimed to break easier, vibrate more, wear down faster, feel unresponsive, etc.
Depends on the design of the bridge, and how the sticks are joined. In theory I could build a bridge of popsicle sticks that would support several tons of weight- but it would take a LOT of popsicle sticks.
An ice hockey puck weighs 6 oz.
