I am the self proclaimed “Hockey Stick Guru”. I hail from the United States of America. I am in my 20’s and I have been playing Ice Hockey for 5 years. I have also played Ball Hockey but mostly as a goaltender. I found my first hockey stick in the trash near my house and I had no idea anything about it. After a few sessions it, it was time for a change. But like many of you, I had no idea what the difference was between the sticks. I started to do research, mostly for myself, so I could have the best stick for me. I would try different sticks and curves so I could feel the differences. I would bug teammates and guys at puck shoots just to try their sticks for a few minutes. I have purchased over 22 different sticks for my own personal collection. I try my best to keep up with current technologies and features.
