TRUE's mission from the very beginning has been to improve the hockey stick. While their starting lineup of sticks was most impressive, those sticks were simply the first step on a much longer quest to improve the hockey stick. The True XCORE 9 Grip Composite Stick is the next step.
This sticks truly game-changing, starting with the XCORE blade. The patented XCORE blade technology will transform you into a more accurate shooter by producing, on average, 30% more spin on the puck on contact. This leads to cleaner, heavier shots that will help you hit your target with more precision, more often. The strategically positioned XCORE insert in the blade provides the industry’s first true “wood-like feel" with unparalleled puck control when receiving a pass or handling the puck. XCORE gives new meaning to the term “having the puck on a string”.
All TRUE sticks are manufactured using patented Axenic technology. This process seamlessly co-molds the shaft and the blade while removing unnecessary weight from the tip and allows the shaft and blade to work as a single cohesive unit which will provide better feedback. The process also improves the overall balance and feel. SmartPly technology incorporated into the shaft’s inner layers is used to control torsional stiffness for better feel and stick control. Unidirectional fibers control the stiffness and flex to protect from impact damage while additional torsional and hoop layers increase the stick’s impact strength. Lightweight and tough in one sleek package? what more can you ask?
Different situations call for different stick stiffness. The varied stiffness throughout the shaft of the stick, achieved through SmartFlex technology, will grant you the versatility a sport like hockey demands. This technology uses a gradual mid-flex profile for optimal performance and feel in every game situation imaginable. A softer flex in the end of the stick adds leverage for wrist shots and increases the feel of the stick while a stiffer tip helps with stability and accuracy.
Don’t let a relatively new name scare you---while TRUE is new to the sport, their history in making high-quality golfing equipment is reputable. They aren't new to making sporting equipment. Their mission to obsessively improve their product should assuage any fear or uneasiness. You’ll feel the TRUE power when the XCORE 9 Grip Composite Stick is in your hands.
