Overview: The Catalyst 7X3 has a lot of the same features as the top-end 9X3, but the carbon fiber and laminate are not the same quality as in the 9X3. The Catalyst 7X3 is nonetheless a lightweight stick with exceptional strength and durability.
New Upgrades: Foam Core & Quad-Rib Blade
Kick Point: Mid … Ideal for players who take a variety of shots from everywhere in the offensive zone and value versatility.
Taper: Traditional … A stiff taper zone to maximize control.
Shaft Construction: Spread Tow Fabric, RESFLO, PLD (Precision Laminate Design), Axenic one-piece … PLD features 25 layers of carbon fiber in an advanced laminate construction to reduce overall weight without impacting durability. The spread tow fabric and RESFLO technology included in the shaft and blade provide unmatched strength in a lightweight build for shot consistency and power. The Axenic one-piece construction features a seamless build that combines a compression-molded shaft into the blade.
Shaft Shape: Square Corner, Double Concave … A streamlined shape with rounded corners and concave sidewalls.
Blade: Foam Core with Quad-Rib … Increases feel and control, without sacrificing stiffness or durability.
Pure Hockey Recommendation: The TRUE Catalyst 7X3 offers many of the features found on the top-of-the-line model at a higher weight and more affordable price, geared toward the performance-level player who is on the ice a few times per week.
