Creation of perfectly balanced sticks is based on experienced craftsmen, handling the highest quality raw materials and then balancing the final product with the introduction of specific, measured amounts of silicon rubber inside the shaft. This rubber coating, applied at the base of the handle provides a damping effect, reducing vibrations.
The inital coating applied to a stick is usually purely for cosmetic reasons. The Cold Satin Laquer applied to some models actually feels different under a players touch, increasing awareness of temperature and giving the impression of reduced friction for dribbling and stick turn-over.
Looking for control? EVOLUTION and GENESIS composite sticks feature a silicon-based resin on the face of the sticks not silica. The result – increased ball control and skill enhancement. Tiny black rubber particles give texture to the surface. Because they squash on impact they provide a microscopic level of ‘damping’. Perfect for stopping and ball control.
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 proile under the right hand and a balance point that favours the head end of the stick. This gives a combination of great stick turnover because of the shape but better hitting power because of the balance point and sweet spot.
Piezo-electric ibres are included in the Evo.0.1 - Evo.0.5 and are used to ‘harvest’ the vibrations created in these super-stiff sticks and turn them into heat. The result of this is efficient vibration dampening.
