What is Shaft Technology?
Shaft technology refers to the design and construction of hockey stick shafts. It plays a crucial role in determining the performance and feel of the stick. In this blog post, we will explore three key shaft technologies: Low Kick, ACL2.0, and Monocomp construction.
Low Kick Shaft Technology
Low Kick shaft technology is designed to provide quick and explosive shots. It features a flex point that is located lower on the shaft, closer to the blade. This allows for maximum energy transfer and a faster release. Players who rely on quick wrist shots and snap shots will benefit from the Low Kick technology.
ACL2.0 Shaft Technology
ACL2.0 stands for Advanced Carbon Layering 2.0. It is a shaft technology that enhances the overall performance and durability of the stick. By strategically layering carbon fibers at different angles, ACL2.0 improves energy transfer, reduces weight, and increases strength. This results in a more responsive and powerful stick that can withstand the rigors of intense gameplay.
Monocomp construction is a manufacturing process that creates a true one-piece hockey stick. Traditional sticks are made by fusing the blade and shaft together, which can create weak points and affect performance. With Monocomp construction, the stick is molded as a single piece, eliminating any inconsistencies or weak spots. This leads to improved balance, responsiveness, and overall performance.
Blade Technology: Hyp2rcore Bladecore, Textreme
In addition to shaft technology, blade technology also plays a crucial role in a hockey stick's performance. Two notable blade technologies are Hyp2rcore Bladecore and Textreme.
Hyp2rcore Bladecore is a blade technology that enhances puck feel and shot accuracy. It features a unique construction with a lightweight foam core and a reinforced heel and toe. This combination provides excellent puck control, improved shot release, and increased durability.
Textreme is a high-performance carbon fiber material used in blade construction. It offers exceptional strength and stiffness while reducing weight. The use of Textreme in the blade results in improved puck feel, enhanced shot accuracy, and overall responsiveness.
Shaft and blade technologies are constantly evolving, with Bauer pushing the boundaries to improve performance. Understanding these technologies can help players make informed decisions when choosing a hockey stick that suits their playing style and preferences.
