What is the purpose of a late bow on 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).

How many types of field hockey sticks are there?

The basic difference between sticks is the composition: wooden, woodcore and composite. Beyond that, different weights are available, roughly along the lines of light, medium and heavy. As well as that, you can get a stick in many different sizes from around 35 inches up to 38", and even custom made as larger or smaller, The shape of the stick in the hook or the bow, where the bow is, etc. all change the stick as well. Each brand will also make their sticks slightly different from all others, and what makes a light or heavy, a long or short, a medium or short bow, a specific shape will depend on who makes it too. There are almost as many types of stick as there are sticks themselves.

What is the measurement of a field hockey stick?

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.

Why are field hockey sticks curved?

The hook at the head of the stick helps with controlling the ball and allows a player to drag the ball and Indian-dribble easier. Most sticks also have a bow along the shaft; this gives extra speed to flicks, helps with dribbling and can make it easier to raise the ball with a hit.

Why is the bow of a field hockey stick restricted to 25mm?

Sticks were originally made of two parts spliced together (the head and the shaft) - the angle of the splice determined the bow, and was usually around 20mm. When composite sticks were introduced, manufacturers began experimenting with different bow sizes and they soon got out of control. One sideeffect of these extreme bows was an increase in the speed of a dragflick; the movement became more of a slingshot action than a flick. The FIH quickly restricted the bow to 50mm, but even then it was found to be excessive. The regulation was then dropped to 25mm and has remained there since.

How big should a hockey stick be?

Field HockeyMost adult players use a 36.5 inch (93 cm) hockey stick but this all depends on the height of the player and the player's personal preference. The general rule is the stick, with the hook on the ground and the stick parallel to your body, should come up to the level of your navel, and you should feel comfortable using it (not too short/long/heavy). Junior players use shorter sticks (down to 28 in/71cm), while taller adult players over 5ft 11in/180cm use a 37.5 inch (95cm) stick or even a 38.5in (98cm) stick.The stick must also be able to fit through a ring 51mm (2in) in diameter, and when placed on the ground flat side down, the bow in the stick must be 25mm (1in) or less.Ice HockeyIt can be whatever size you want it to be. However, it is recommended that the stick be about as tall as your nose without skates.
