There are a few minor restrictions on the dimensions of a stick, but the three that are mainly focused on are the width (the whole stick must be able to go through a ring with an internal diameter of 51mm), the length (most players have a stick between 35 and 38 inches long) and the bow (when the stick is played facedown on a flat surface), a prism or rod with a diameter of 25mm must not be able to pass under it at any point). There are various explanations of these regulations available at other questions on WA.

A series of graded cylinders or triangular prisms is used. Each is inserted under the stick in turn, until a larger grade cannot fit. The largest grade that does is the bow of the stick.

What is the bow of a field hockey stick?

A late bow is used for increased ball control but mostly to aid in lifts, like flicks and aerial passes. A stick with a late bow is especially helpful when shooting a drag flick. Transitioning from a stick with a mid bow or little to no bow to a stick with a late bow can pose a challenge when it comes to hitting/driving the ball. However with practice, adjusting your hitting technique to the late bow in a stick is rather easy if you have a good hit to begin with. Sticks with late bows are best for forwards and mid-fielders that will be lifting the ball a lot.

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).
