The Sher-Wood Rekker EK365 Grip Composite Hockey Stick is an advanced level stick offered by Sher-Wood. The Sher-Wood Rekker EK365 hockey stick line is designed to lighter, more responsive, and more reliable than ever before with the addition of new and improved materials along with Sher-Wood’s unique manufacturing process. The key features of the Rekker EK365 hockey stick include the incorporation of Blackline Carbon Fiber which is an 18k weave using thinner fibers than what is found in traditional carbon fiber. Using thinner fiber to create their carbon weave, Sher-Wood is able to produce a hockey stick that is lighter, quicker, and more durable. Thinner fibers allow the carbon weave to be lighter, woven tighter for a faster recoil, and layered more for added durability.
The next key feature of the Sher-Wood Rekker EK365 hockey stick is the Dropkick Taper which is the result of rigorous testing from Sher-Wood. This taper is more aggressive than anything Sher-Wood has produced before and as a result there is more efficiency in loading and a quicker release. Sher-Wood lowered the taper giving this stick a true low kick-point and in turn you’ll be able to let the stick do the work for you. To help bolster the durability of this stick, while maintaining its light weight, Sher-Wood has used Flylyte Technology on the shaft. One of the most interesting features of the Sher-Wood Rekker EK365 hockey stick is the use of a nano-material called Graphene, which is 200 times stronger than steel. This material is super light-weight and flexible which has allowed Sher-Wood to infuse the material into the key breakage areas of the stick to improve durability. When it comes to the blade, Sher-Wood has used their VRF.2 Blade which will help the stick keep is new stick feel longer. The blade is covered with layers of Blackline Carbon fiber to improve the overall balance and durability. Inside the blade, Sher-Wood has inserted a rigid carbon fiber bridge to make the blade stiffer and minimize the effects of constant contact with the puck. To finish off the stick, Sher-Wood has incorporated Spear Shaft Technology which has the shaft run through the heel of the blade to provide a better puck feel and a more consistent flex profile.
While Sher-Wood might be bets known for their wood hockey sticks, they have taken new technologies and put them to practical use in the Rekker EK365 composite hockey stick line.
