TRUE A4.5 SBP Grip Intermediate Composite Hockey Stick


If you thought TRUE was a new company, guess again. With over 14 years of experience and over 2 million sticks produced for leading hockey companies, TRUE is making a splash into the stick market by coming direct to you! As the world leader of golf shaft technology TRUE is set on providing the hockey industry with superior stick designs made from the highest quality materials and strictest manufacturing processes. Bent on providing pure domination at every level of the game, TRUE designed the TRUE A4.5 SBP hockey stick and rest of the A series line with just that in mind.

TRUE utilized a high pressure clave molding process which they patented under the title Axenic Technology. The advantage of using this manufacturing process is it yields a true one-piece hockey stick and results in very consistent internal walls and shaft shape, a very low void content, pure uninterupted flexural energy transfer and of course an amazing balance and feel. Working alongside the Axenic Technology, Smartply Technology is the recipe TRUE implemented for performance and industry leading impact strength. Smartply tech is a laminate design that is used with up to 25 inner layers of unidirectional carbon fiber; the way the fibers are angled and the order of those angles are what control torsional stiffness and protect from impact damage and provide added durability.

The TRUE A4.5 SBP hockey stick has a 100% 3K carbon fiber core wrapped in fiber glass and has a graduated mid-flex profile for increased performance and feel in all game situations. New for 2016 is the BRT blade technology. The seamless braided tubes located at the center and and bottom of the blade produce the longest lasting and most consistent blade we've ever made, up to 50% stronger than its predecessor the ABII technology!

Made from the highest quality materials and strictest manufacturing processes, it is no doubt that the A4.5 stick is a leader in performance and value at its price point. Designed for any type of player looking for a performance stick without compromising durability, TRUEs A4.5 SBP may be for you!

2017 True Blade Pattern Chart

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best stick for the money Overall: Light, Durable, Awesome release, Looks sick. You have to spend a lot more for a Bauer to get a stick this good. I switched from the top of the line Bauer Supreme sticks when I tried the True 4.5. The stick is light and extremely durable. I use one stick for the entire season then get a new one for the playoffs. The problem is that the one I used last season is still great so I am piling up sticks. #Toodurable The 85 flex is whippy and holds up extremely well. By the end of the season it had lost some flex. I use an MC curve (like a Bauer p88). It does everything. If you need a more open blade, then work out more. I take draws and other than guys stepping on my stick it is without any marks.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Flex and curve different from A5.2 I have been using the original A5.2's exclusively up until now. They are too expensive to not buy on sale and I broke my last one which made me buy the 4.5 SBP. I use 85 flex in the A5.2 and 85 in the 4.5 SBP was way more whippy! I ended up having to go up to a 95 flex in it and its still more whippy than the A5.2 but not far off. I was told from someone that helped me at Pure Hockey that all the new True sticks are like this and to choose at least 10 flex more than you did before. My shot has changed some with this stick but should be OK once I get used to it more. The one other thing I noticed is that stick handling the blade flips the puck up on edge a lot on the forehand. This happens when shooting sometimes too. I am using the MC curve and always have. I have never had this problem before. It does look like it is slightly more curved than my previous sticks but if it is, its not by much. All in all the stick is OK but I like the original A5.2 a lot better.
