TRUE Senior A4.5 SBP Hockey Goalie Stick
The TRUE Hockey A4.5 SBP goal stick combines three of their technologies—Axenic Technology, Smartply, and Braided Rib Technology—to bring goalies a composite stick that is optimized to balance performance and durability. TRUE’s Axenic Technology is a patented (US Patent 6,893,596) compression molding process, which makes their shafts taper to a dimension that is thin enough form the heel of the blade. Axenic Technology co-molds the blade and paddle to the shaft, creating a true one-piece composite goal stick. Smartply is the laminate that is used on the A4.5. Using up to 25 layers of unidirectional carbon fiber in just one shaft, the fiber angles influence the flex, torsional response and impact strength of the shaft. Braided Rib Technology (BRT) is a patent pending technology that binds the front and back faces of the blade with a continuous carbon fiber braided tube. BRT results in a stronger, more consistent structure. Furthermore, the A4.5 SBP goal stick has a 60% higher impact strength in the shaft, versus its predecessor ABII.
- BRT blade technology is up to 50% stronger than predecessor
- SmartPly construction layers unidirection carbon for ultimate balance and strength
- Matte Grip provides great feel on hands
- Axenic technology creates an ultra consistent true one-piece construction
