Can you use a ice hockey stick for street hockey?

Yes i wouldn't use a very expensive one though, i would use a older stick that you had before or buy a kind of cheap stick probably around $20-$50 ------------------------- There are generally four types of materials used to make hockey stick blades; wood, composite graphite, ABS resin, and plastic. Most of these blades, depending on the model, also have some type of fiberglass weave integrated into their design. Wood blades are meant to be used on ice only. The bottom of the blade will splinter fairly quickly on any other surface making the stick useless. Composite graphite blades are used on ice and sport court (roller hockey) surfaces only. ABS resin blades can really be used anywhere and plastic blades are used for street hockey only (ball only). Plastic blades are not stiff enough to handle the weight of pucks. If your ice hockey stick as has an ABS resin blade, using it for street hockey will not be a problem. Otherwise, I would seriously discourage you from using it outside. Instead, Bauer, Sherwood, TRON, and Frontier all make relatively cheap street hockey sticks ($25 or less).

How does a field hockey stick get flex?

The materials a hockey stick is made of are naturally springy or flexible. Each one ranges from quite firm and stiff to very giving in nature. The combination they are in, and how they are put together, controls how flexible a stick will be and where it wil bend to any amount. For field hockey sticks, the permanent bend is often built in as part of the molding and manufacture process; this bow can increase with age, and different bows are used in different sticks. The oldest of bowed sticks were originally straight, but gained a bow through age and exposure (the weather and conditions would warp the wood).

Will a baseball travel further when hit by an aluminum or composite bat?

Depends on what the flex of the bat is... if you have a stiff flex or one piece bat the ball is bound to travel a greater distance... having a stiff composite bat will deff create a faster exit speed after the bat is swung but this does not mean it will go further... but all in all I believe it is the person who is swinging the bat who determines the distance the ball will travel... having a 400$ bat will not make you hit homeruns.
