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. However, composite sticks are more expensive. How do you know which are composite an which are wood? - It will either say it on the stick, or you will be able to tell by the weight of the stick.

A fibreglass hockey stick is a hockey stick with a layer/s of fibreglass to support the stick and usually layered over wood. A composite stick can have a range of materials e.g. kevlar, carbon fibre, armaid, glassfibre etc. It does not have any wood part. half composite sticks have part synthetic material, part wood. Overall, fibreglass is just a material used to make a stick composite. Wood hockey sticks tend to be better as they reduce stick shock on a cold day (where the stick vibrates when hitting the ball), however, composite have a huge amount of power when striking the ball.

A composite hockey stick is made from a synthetic material such as carbon fiber and is seen as lighter and to have more flex than a wood hockey stick. The flex of the stick is often rated on the stick and the amount of flex is a preference of the player. Flex can be seen as important because it causes a snapping of the stick during a snap or slap shot which causes the puck to release at a higher velocity. however often the more flex a stick may have the easier it may break.
