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. Composite sticks are a lot heavier.
There are many brands of field hockey sticks but some are given below. STX Carba100 Senior Composite Field Hockey Stick STX C-103 Adult Composite Field Hockey Stick STX 361 Composite Field Hockey Stick Grays GX5000 Composite Field Hockey Stick Or you can find sticks from the link in the related links.
Grays and TK
Definatly Stx or kookaburra
my dad played for 25 years his preferred stick is the gx 8000 he has used grays for 20 years
personally i use a mercian stick (and love it) , but Dita and grays are really good also :)
Whichever stick you believe works best for you. Try a few out; no stick or even a general description will suit even a majority of players.
depends what you like - voodoo, gryphon and grays are very popular brands with pro's
the best hocky stick is clearly the Bauer 1854875123463241931i2g34u213o4y1
YES THEY ARE. Best custom sticks on the market!
Really, the best hockey stick depends on your own opinion, but my personal favorite is the Warrior Kronik. It is a very expensive (300-350$) hockey stick that has a nice look, good weight and great durability. If you have the money, this is the stick to go for.
In my view it is Luciana Aymar. She is the Diego Maradona of field hockey.
it is best to use a fiberglass one for every turf,field, or surface.
A good one
There is no "best" hockey stick. The quality of the stick is determined by you, the consumer. For example, Player A prefers the Warrior Dolomite stick because it is light weight. However, Player B prefers the Easton Synergy because of the curve on the blade.
I personally think that Kookaburra sticks are the best... They are solid in tackles and good for both pushing and hitting I currently have the Kookaburra Pacific and it is a legend stick!
A centimetre is probably best
its probably the best stick for driveway hockey because the blade doesnt wear down but it is awful for ice hockey
Nobody makes ceramic hockey sticks (and I would wonder why if they did - ceramic is not the best thing to hit other stuff with), so kevlar/carbon fibre is the only answer.
The Nexus 1000 by Bauer
Dhyan Chand is by far the best field hockey player th@ ever was or will be.
There are a lot of good field hockey countries but the best for men are probably the Netherlands, Germany and Australia and the best for women are probably Argentina, the Netherlands and Australia.
I wouldn't recommend it. You can use a old wooden stick or even your backup stick but using your best one could damage the stick and then it wouldn't be your best stick!
Field Hockey sticks can be made of wood or carbon and fibreglass. Wood is more old-fashioned. Carbon makes the sticks lighter and fibreglass gives them the strength so they won't break. The best sticks are mostly carbon with a bit of fibreglass.
