Many players today enjoy putting together their own custom stick using a hockey shaft combined with a hockey blade. Customizing a hockey stick allows the player to choose a material for the hockey stick shaft with a certain flex, feel, strength, or other feature, and pair that with a hockey stick blade with the perfect feel, not to mention curve, size, weight, angle, or other feature. Using different materials for the custom hockey stick also allows a player to replace a part if s/he decides to try something else, or breaks one piece. One of the more popular combinations is a composite hockey shaft with its light weight and flex for power, coupled with a wooden hockey blade, which many players believe has better feel with and allows better stick handling of the puck. So, if you haven’t found that magic hockey stick yet and know what you want at the hockey shaft and hockey blade, trying putting the two together yourself.
