Jamie Benn Pro Stock Style Curve

MAJOR TREND EMERGING! A curve known by pro's as the Jamie Benn curve is taking over. 

We now work with over 75 pro teams, and if you follow pro stock sticks at all you will notice that 90 percent of players use either the old Sakic style curve (what we classify as Blade Type 1), or the Open Toe (what we call the Blade Type 6).  In 2016 we started to see something that appeared to be in between the two.  

We found out that Jamie Benn of the NHL's Dallas Stars always used the Blade 1, but liked the Blade 6, however he couldn't quite commit to making the change.  So being a big leaguer Benn asked the manufacturer to find a mid ground between the two and this curve was created.  

All the sudden in 2017 we are starting to see 2-4 guys on every team now using this pattern, and it makes a lot of sense.  Judging by its popularity among pros I expect that you will see this become a retail pattern shortly.  

As a side note Jamie Benn is a good ol' boy from Vancouver Island.  I was fortunate enough to have met him at a few parties years ago during my time on the coast.  What a beauty!

Salming Floorball Tricks / Zorro Sticks


HockeyStickMan has now added the 2017 Salming Aero Z Zorro stick to go along with the Exel TriX+ 2017 Pure and Force! Giving us the best selection of Trick / Zorro sticks anywhere online! 



What's better is that we are proud to be able to offer these to our customers at the lowest possible prices and we can now ship them within the US and Canada, so customers can pay in US or CAD! 



Why we like floorball? 
Floorball is excellent off-ice training for hockey players, as the light stick and ball emphasize hand eye coordination and improve stick handling, passing and shooting skills. The sticks won’t damage floors and can be used in the gym, at home, in the basement or in the driveway. the street or at the rink before games. Used by European NHLers and Hockey Canada Skills Academies across the country. These sticks are made with a high quality Composite shaft with Carbon Fibre reinforcement which is perfect for hockey players looking to use Floorball as a way to improve their skills! AND ITS FUN AS HELL!

Hockey / Floorball Trick Sticks (Zorro Blade)

 


The big gift on all young hockey players list this year.....a Floorball stick with a Trix+ / Zorro blade.  A growing trend fueled by social media, so here is the HockeyStickMan's opinion of the product.......

When I was growing up there was a large culture of criticism for too much stick handling, as players we were encouraged to "dump the puck" and make the easy plays, old school systematic hockey, and I hated that.  But today's game has changed into an NHL that encourages creativity and raw talent, and we are seeing this in a wave of new young players emerging as top players on just about every NHL team in the league now.  So creativity, fun, and seeing just what people can do......I say bring it on!

When I worked at BC Hockey we used to play Floorball in our High Performance camps. It was a way to have a little off ice fun but while continuing to focus on the game.  Kids don't think of playing around with a floorball stick as practice but when doing it they are developing their skills.  When I first tried the trick stick I found that I really enjoyed playing around and trying a few things, and really addicting (not that I am prepared to showcase my talents or anything). 

We worked a deal to get 300 of these sticks in before the holidays, so I am able to sell them off at $64.99 as a holiday deal to our customers, amazingly we have sold through most of what we brought in and I am working on getting more!

The proper hockey stick flex for kids

The general rule is that your hockey stick should be approximately half your body weight. However, we've seen thousands of pro players using sticks that are far less than half their body weight.  Considering their power and upper body strength, how much flex to body weight ratio should a young player have? 

The chart below outlines the recommended flex you should be playing with based on your height and weight:


THE PROPER FLEX CHART 



Understanding Flex - The flex rating on a stick is the amount of pounds of pressure it takes to bend the stick one inch. We call this "loading the stick".  It takes 25, 35, and 45 lbs of pressure to "load" a pro flex stick as compared to 50 lbs of pressure to load a normal junior stick. 

Player's Height and Flex - the taller the player the more leverage he/she has to "load" the stick.  You will see in our chart that shorter players require less flex than taller players.  

Note: this is just meant to be a guideline.  As players, we know that personal preference is still important, but this is a great starting point.
