What is the best field hockey stick to purchase?

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.

Best hockey stick?

Technically speaking, there is no "best" hockey stick, though there are many good ones. Personally, I would choose Reebok 10k. It also depends on what position you are, and what kind of player you are. Are you a grinder? Sniper? Dangler? These all help determine the attributes of yourself, and what kind of stick you should buy.

What happens if you break your hockey stick?

If you break your hockey stick in a game you must drop it immediately (unless there has been a stoppage in play). If you continue to play with or do not set down your broken stick you will get a 2 min. penalty. Most players bring two sticks to hockey games and practices in case they do brake their first stick. If you do not have a spear you can usually barrow a team mates or go to the rinks pro shop and buy a new on right away. It is always a good idea to have two hockey sticks. In some cases your stick can be fixed. If the brake is in the right spot it can even be cut down and given to a kid. Unless you have fixed broken sticks before, I suggest having someone who knows what they are doing fix it for you. If all else fails and you must throw away your stick think again! There are people who actually make furniture out of hockey sticks. They look so cool. I know of two people. Be creative and try it yourself. You can't break your stick much more:)

How do you tell if a field hockey stick is broken?

The answer to this question is very difficult as it depends on what kind of stick you use... wooden, composite, full composite... First - do a visually check of the stick to see for any breaks or fractures usually that will give you an idea. Secondly - the best thing to do would be to listen out for the sound the stick makes when you hit the ball and if its not a solid sound and the stick vibrates a lot then it maybe broken. Thirdly - before you buy another stick show it to your coach or someone who is experienced and has many years of hockey behind them to see if they agree with your evaluation and in most cases these people will know if the stick is broken or not just by doing the first two points i made.
