Composite, or 1 piece sticks are actually made of 2 pieces. The shaft is hollow, and the blade is inserted into the shaft, then a coating is applied to the stick, making it look like it is made in one piece. The inside is wood and it is fibreglass reinforced. (meaning it is "coated" with fibreglass) The stick is made of fibre mat and resin in a mould, then allowed to set. It is built up layer by layer until roughly finished, then sanded or cut down to the smooth final shape. It is capped at the end and then painted.
