Sher-Wood Hockey Sticks
Sher-Wood is one of the earliest manufactures of hockey sticks. They’ve outlasted most of their early competitors, such as Northland and Victoriaville. For being such an old company they still maintain a fair share of the current market. They also continue to adapt to the marketplace and use new and innovative techniques in production and design. It’s rare for a company to maintain such a fervent following, but they do it with amateurs and pros alike. Many famous hockey players swear by Sher-Wood hockey sticks. Among them are greats such as Ray Borque and Al MacGinnis. Their favorite stick, and one of Sherwood’s most popular, is the 9950 model. Sher-Wood hockey sticks are also known for having a “good feel,” that is, they allow you to “feel” the puck. As long as they keep up with the latest trends Sher-Wood will be around for a long time come.
Sher-Wood Goalie Sticks
A goalie has special needs when looking for a stick. Sher-Wood understands this, and has designed the Sher-Wood 9950 to help them. The 9950 is the only goalie stick based on the actual NHL Pro pattern, making it a professional level piece of equipment. The blade is covered with a blend of fiber glass and carbon fibers, allowing the goalie to block even the hardest of shots. Most would think such a powerful stick would be heavy, but the 9950 is blessed with an ultra-light design for increased handling. Another great design feature that sets this apart from other Sher-Wood Hockey Sticks is the shaft; It’s filled with foam rubber to absorb the shock the puck picks up by the time it reaches the net. The Sher-Wood 9950 is perfect for any goalie, and also makes a great stick for power players.
Sher-Wood Feather-Lite Hockey
Sher-Wood has several model’s of stick they consider “feather-lite,” but none are so popular as Sher-Wood 5030. It’s a solid, modern wooden stick that features a two-piece aspen core covered in a majestic birch multi-lamination. Every single Sher-Wood Hockey Stick comes with a personalized design on the blade, making it a particularly fun piece to play with. Those that are hard on blades need not worry. The blade is composed of white ash and reinforced with multi-directional fibers, ensuring it won’t snap under most normal playing conditions. The 5030, with it’s “feather-lite” design, is perfect for most support positions. The price is a little bit lower than an average blade, so the player’s wallet will stay heavy while he keeps his stick light.
