The new TRUE A-Series hockey sticks flip conventional stick knowledge on its head with its new emphasis on swing weight.
In recent years, stick manufacturers have been trying to make their sticks lighter and lighter, focusing only on the overall weight of the stick believing that the lighter a stick is, the better it performs. The new TRUE A-Series hockey sticks flip this idea on its head with its new emphasis on swing weight. Swing weight refers to how a much a stick weighs when you’re using it rather than the weight on the scale, and TRUE has used this concept to design the new A-Series with optimized balance and feel. The weight distribution and balance points on the new TRUE A-Series make this stick feel light as a feather when passing, shooting, or stickhandling, and still provides greater durability than many of the super lightweight sticks on the market today.
The swing weight of the TRUE A-Series makes the stick feel lighter while you’re using it, and it accomplishes this through its unique balance point. The swing weight of a stick is calculated by how much force it takes to lift or move the stick between the lower point of the player’s hand and the balance point of the stick, and this force is far higher than the overall weight of the stick. But by distributing the weight of the stick throughout the shaft and moving the balance point of the stick lower down the shaft, the TRUE A-Series hockey sticks feel as light or lighter than any stick on the market while delivering superior durability. The TRUE A-Series sticks have the lowest swing weight of any stick on the market, despite not being the lightest overall.
Beyond the swing weight technology, the new TRUE A-Series hockey sticks include other features that increase their performance and durability. The improved BRT+ design has moved weight from the blade to the shaft, making the shaft more durable and gives them 20% greater shaft impact strength compared to their predecessor. This gives these sticks the strength to stand up to slapshots, slashes, and whatever else your game throws at it.
The new TRUE A-Series sticks have also been optimized to make energy loading as easy and efficient as possible. The low kick point in both the TRUE A 6.0 HT and TRUE A 6.0 SBP stick lets you get as much power as possible out of your shot. Whether you’re firing a quick snap shot from the slot or you’re leaning into a slapshot from the point, the TRUE A-Series stick will give you the extra power you need to rip one past the goaltender.
The new TRUE A-Series hockey sticks prove that lighter doesn’t mean better when it comes to stickperformance, and that the number on a scale isn’t as important as how a stick feels in your hands on the ice. For a stick that feels great and performs even better, choose the TRUE A-Series hockey stick.
