Bauer Prodigy Youth 50 Inch Composite Hockey Stick
So, when you think of the age hierarchy of hockey sticks it makes sense for the most part: senior, junior, intermediate, and youth and you've got it covered, right? Well not exactly.
For years youth sticks have been one size fits all, at the very most you'd have two size/flex selections to choose from. Now, parents know better than anyone that kids in the youth age group are growing like weeds, and as they do progress to a Jr. stick they're going to shoot up a couple feet and more than a few pounds. Does it really make sense to group them all together?
Shooting in hockey is all about mechanics, perfecting your swing, properly leveraging the flex of your stick, these dynamics are what separate elite shooters from the rest. The Prodigy line was designed to match your player to the right tool for them to learn to how to shoot the right way the first time, and not years later when they're finally big enough to leverage their stick's capabilities. Shooting in hockey has changed since we were kids, and our probably shouldn't be using the same tools we did just because that's how it was done.
50 Inch 40 Flex
This is the largest of the Prodigy stick set, and is designed for players from 55"-65" tall and between 70-90 lbs. This stick is specifically tuned for players in this weight range, with adjustments to its height, width, flex, blade stiffness, curve and lie. All in an effort to maximize its usability and provide your mite with the best playing experience possible. You're next stick will likely be a Jr. so enjoy the last of their youth career and hopefully they're already going top shelf!
