The Standard Bend incorporates a 22mm bend positioned at the mid-point of the shaft; the balance point has been moved up the stick (towards the handle) to enhance the playing characteristics of these sticks. (Higher balance point, less head weight, easier ‘turn-over’ and therefore ball movement
The basic material used in hockey sticks is Fibreglass. Fibreglass is a strong lightweight material and is used for many products including sports equipment such as hockey sticks. Although it is not as strong and stiff as composites based on Carbon Fibre, it is less brittle, and its raw materials are much cheaper. Its bulk strength and weight are also better than many metals, and it can be more readily moulded into complex shapes once impregnated with complex resins. This flexibility means that as a skeleton, a Fibreglass base resists some of the energy that can compromise the pure brittle nature of Carbon Fibre. It is why we (Mercian) believe that a 100% carbon stick is not the perfect performance solution.
A silicon rubber gel is applied to the inside of the sticks in the designated ‘M-Gel’ area and it acts as a barrier to vibration, creating a slightly softer feel to all the sticks and enhancing the touch the player experiences.
