The length of the stick is important. Make sure your stick of choice reaches your hip bone area while holding the stick upright on the ground, against the side your leg.

Its usually best to ask some field hockey players what kind of sticks they like and then maybe go out and try some to see if it suits you. Sticks are designed differently with many different makes like Grays, Malik, Mercian, TK, Slazenger, Dita, Gryphon and even Adidas now... If you can go to a hockey outlet and try the sticks before you buy them, then that is the best way to go as buying a hockey stick is like buying Trainers or Clothes, it all depends on how comfortable you feel with it.t depends on what you want. If you want a stick for dribbling then any lightweight stick with a good head will do fine. If you want one for flicking, aerials and so forth get a stick with curve. The more the better. However the more you have then it can become less good when dribbling. If you are a big hitter then you want a stick that is strong and durable with a good amount of curve. grays are probily the most durable of all so you might want to go for one of them. Before you buy your stick know what you want. I strongly recommend going on all the major makers: Voodoograysgryphonditamurcial When you choose your stick i very strongly recommend you go to barrington sports (just type it in on Google) As when i got my stick that website saved me a fortune!
you take a blow torch heat your blade up then jam your stick under a door and lift the stick to the type of curve you would like and let cool and enjoy
it is when you scoop the puck up onto the blade of your stick, more of a trick-shot type thing.
