Haca is a brand based out of Ireland, as you can tell from the brand name being the Irish (Gaelic) for Hockey. They were kind enough to send me their H9 stick with is 90% Carbon and features a full low bow, along with a twisted head and dragflicking groove running down the shaft and onto the face. The stick also features a sand blasted face for better grip on the ball and Octagonal handle for better stability when flicking or hitting, along with more control on the sticks rotation when dribbling.
Leading on from our general article on Decathlon Hockey, Decathlon promote themselves as being the market leader for sports retail across the globe (read the article here). We managed to get our hands on some of the products on offer by Decathlon’s Hockey Range, called Kipsta. In this first review,
This stick has a full legal lowbow, three core channel design and a bright yellow and green paint job. The stick has a composition of 91% carbon, 5% kevlar and 4% glass fibre. It features a touch compound on the face, a twisted toe and a groove channel in the shaft. The one I have for review is an extra light and weighs in at 549g (571g with grip and tape).
