Evolution 0.6 Green PRO (2018)
Mercian Evolution 0.6
85% Carbon construction hockey stick with multiple material composite base layers for durability, torsional strength and ‘feel’.
The Evolution 0.6 is available in Pro Bendto aid regular skill execution and HEX bend. The flatter face profile of the PRO (compared to the Ultimate and DSH) aids pure hitting and slapping skills, both in terms of accuracy and the tendency to lift the ball. The 85% carbon construction creates a stick that easily transfers a high percentage of a player’s energy to the ball, offering high ball speeds on slaps and hits.The HEX bend is a hexagonal handle giving unique positioning feel for the palm of the hand and fingertips. The handle flattens into the shaft giving enhanced stiffness because of the clear spine and also an identifiable backhand area. The 15% of ‘other’ composite materials ensures a good level of vibration control and offers a softness that helps ball control and connects the players to the ball for a higher level of skill execution than just a power focussed product.
The Pro Bend incorporates a near maximum 23.5mm bend positioned just below the mid-point of the shaft. The shaft has then been shaped to give a thinner profile under the right hand and a balance point that favours the head end of the stick. This gives a combination of great stick turn-over because of the shape but better hitting power because of the balance point and sweet spot. The shape is preferred by many top players it enhances dribbling and control due to easy maneuverability and handling of the stick compared with straighter sticks.
