We use 18K carbon fiber as this type retains its properties for the longest time. It is the most stable one. The 3K and 12K carbon fiber ice hockey sticks will easily flex in places they shouldn’t, plus will wear out sooner than the 18K ones.
There is a special surface on the handle of the stick, which does not glue the glove to the stick. Thanks to that, the player can easily move the lower hand along the hockey stick, what is very difficult with the classic grips, especially for children. At the same time, the surface is not completely slippery, so when the player presses the stick more, the JR GRIP helps them hold and avoid any spinning in the hand.
Yes, the flex is manufactured for the original length of the stick. When you cut the hockey stick by 5cm, it will be stiffer by about 7 points. So cutting the hockey stick JR30 by 5cm will give you the hockey stick with Flex 37.
The rule is that flex should be similar to the player’s weight. Therefore, the hockey sticks with increasing flex also have a higher height. We try our best to create such hockey sticks so that you don’t have to cut them or just cut them minimally.
The flex is the flexibility of the ice hockey stick. The flexible stick helps the player shoot the puck at a higher speed. The rule is that we should pick a stick which will have a FLEX similar to the player’s weight.
The most important criterion is the height of the player. If their height is up to 130 cm then the ideal the ice hockey stick is JR20. If their height is up to 142 cm then the ideal the ice hockey stick is JR30. If their height is up to 152 cm then the ideal the ice hockey stick is JR40. For ice hockey players with the height up to 159cm we recommend the stick JR50 with junior shaft width and for players with height up to 164cm we recommend the stick JR50 INT.
In order for the ice hockey stick to be beneficial to the player it should be flexible (have the correct FLEX). It should have a high-quality hard blade so that the puck does not lose the punch when shooting, and gives the player the ability to more accurately aim with each shoot. So the ice hockey stick will control the pucks and not vice versa. We would not recommend a classic GRIP for good development of stick handling technique for young players. And, of course, each player will perform better playing with a lighter stick than a heavy one.
The height of the stick on skates should be maximally up to the root of the nose and at least under the chin.

Composite sticks are made of more admixtures. Usually, you won’t know what is the ratio between carbon fiber, fiberglass and other admixtures. Fiberglass makes the hockey stick cheaper, but it worsens its properties and increases the weight. If you have a 100% carbon fiber stick, you can be sure that there are no other admixtures.
Ice Hockey Sticks JR50 INT have a larger shaft width and are about 5cm longer. So they are for players with higher height and a larger hand. The Ice Hockey Sticks JR50 have a junior width of the shaft as the previous models and are designed for players with the height of 159cm who weigh about 50kg.
Yes, I must first point out that we give a guarantee only to people who register the stick immediately after the purchase on our website, where there is a direct form – “REGISTER YOUR HOCKEY”. You hereby sign in to us for this warranty. Without Ice hockey stick registration, or the registration after the stick is damaged it is not possible to use the warranty. We guarantee 60 days to unglue the stick and crack due to the manufacturing defect. The rule is that any crack on the blade in the longitudinal direction is as a production defect.
There are small particles on the blade that make the it rougher. With this surface, the puck will spin more when shooting and passing. And that’s what we need for a fast shot and accurate passing.
