For my 12th grade science expierament I tested which composite, intermediate hockey stick is the lightest. I tested a Nike Bauer one95, an easton stick'um stealth, a reebok 10k, a CCM U stick, and a Nike Bauer one 90 (this is different from a one95, its a year older. the results showed that the Easton Stealth was the lightest followed by the one95. The reebok 12k came in last.
The 2005 "Easton Stealth" composite hockey stick.
Bauer APX is by far the lightest
The lightest hockey stick weighs about 2 pounds for the wooden variety. Other metal sticks that are made out of titanium or aluminum weight about 1.75 pounds.
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.
in 1989 richard simpson invented a 5 pound composite 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.
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.
You shove a plug in it
The first hockey stick was made by a man named Scott fieldstone a Scottish person in 1779.
Yes. You can use a saw.
It really doesn't make a difference (except that wood sticks tend to be heavier and you also get more flex in a composite stick). It is mostly your preference.
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.
Hockey sticks can be made of wood, composite materials, plastic, metal (in ice hockey only) or a combination of all.
The Easton Synergy SL, the Easton Stealth, the Warrior Kronik or something like that, and there are probably more.
A stick made of synthetic composite materials (e.g. fiberglass, carbon fiber) instead of natural traditional materials (e.g. wood, plywood, metal).

Composite Hockey sticks are sticks made from interwoven strands of fiberous materials such as carbon fiber. The insides are hollow making them light weight, but the interwoven construction allows for a flexible stick with as much strength as, if not more strength as a wooden one.
The plastic film around the stick around 5cm up from the hook
Between myself and my kids, I have cut nine "one-piece" composite sticks and six composite shafts and have found a hacksaw works best.
Composite materials used to make hockey sticks include fiberglass, Kevlar, and carbon fiber. Click on the 'Hockey Stick Materials' link on this page to read more about them. Most popular are graphite carbon fiber sticks
If you were think that it takes all your force to break you composite hockey stick think again. It actually depends how much the stick have has been flexed foe example if you stick has been flexed about 100 times you can get a really hard pass and the stick will break.
