The XC5’s glass carbon composite construction gives a light but durable feel that is perfect for players in search of dependability and performance without the high price tag. Axenic Technology generates completely uniform internal wall thickness and shaft profile. This eliminates excess material from the inside of the stick, and gives the stick unmatched balance in comparison to its competitors. The shaft is then finished with a Matte Grip coating.
The XCore blade uses a Urethane core that compresses upon impact, creating a two-fold benefit for the player. First, it creates more spin, which results in flatter puck flight and, thus, a more accurate shot. Second, it helps to cradle the puck, aiding in pass receiving and overall puck control.
With a traditional mid kick point design, the XC5 will efficiently load and transfer energy into shot power. In other words, you definitely don’t have to give up velocity at the expense of accuracy!
