Anything in the game of hockey can take just .01 seconds and that’s what the Easton V9E Grip Composite Stick focuses on. By giving you that point one second advantage over the game, Easton sets you up to win. Built around Easton’s Art of Scoring Philosophy, the V9E is designed with innovative features: Load. Release. Velocity.
Load your shot with the advanced Elliptical Taper Tuned Flex Shaft Profile. This construction means the lower part of the shaft has an elliptical shape where the shaft meets the blade and the Tuned Flex Profile works with your body weight by storing energy below your bottom hand to fully load the shaft and blade. Easton knows your bottom hand is the key to releasing ultimate velocity and with the grip shaft you will load even more body weight behind your shot for a faster release and greater velocity.
Release starts with the Hypertoe, a design that combines a stiffened toe with a softened taper section to create more force with the same load, and finishes with the Dual Lie Patterns (E3, E28, E36) that keep the puck on the toe of the blade. Ultimately positioning the puck on the toe forces you to load the blade and create more shot velocity.
The V-Series has been completely redesigned around the correct shooting technique focusing on the puck position, blade angle and energy transfer. When you combine all aspects, it comes down to one thing: Velocity.
