Allow us to help you make sense of the wide range of floorball sticks available. Floorball sticks differ depending on their orientation, length, hardness, shape, and material used.Continue
- You can choose from left and right sticks.
- The stick orientation does not depend on whether you're left-handed or right-handed – it’s different for every individual and depends on what feels right for you personally.
- If you place your left hand below your right when holding the stick, you are left-oriented.
- If you are unsure, pick up a broom, rake, or shovel and see how you place your hands – the hold tends to be the same.
|Body height (cm)||Stick length (cm)|
|Less than 110||Less than 60|
|195 and taller||100 and longer|
- The stick should reach from your navel up to 3-5 cm above the navel.
- If you choose a stick that is too long, it will be harder for you to handle and control the ball. Short sticks on the other hand can cause back problems, not to mention they have a smaller range.
- For adult players, the stick length generally ranges between 95 and 100 cm, depending on your exact height.
- Consult the chart for general advice on floorball stick lengths.
Stick flex is expressed in millimeters. The flex value indicates how much a 1 meter long stick flexes under the force of 30 kg (300 N). The flex shows how much does the stick bend when shooting - the higher the flex, the harder the wrist shot. There are three main flex categories.
- Soft (32-40 mm) - soft sticks provide better ball control and flex more under force. This type is more suited for a technical style of play, beginners, younger players, and girls or women.
- Medium flex (27-30 mm) - the most common type and the golden mean. Good balance between ball handling and hard slap shots.
- Hard (23-25 ??mm) - provides powerful slap shots. This type is suitable for experienced and professional players.
Stick flex can also be roughly deduced from the player weight – see the chart below for some general guidelines:
|Player weight (kg)||Stick flex (mm)|
|up to 50||32-40|
Blades are divided into three categories depending on their hardness. Defenders generally use stiffer blades, while forwards prefer softer.
- A soft blade is great for dribbling and ball control.
- We recommend it for both beginners and technical players; also suitable for wrist shots.
Medium hard (MB)
- The most common type; has an optimal ratio between ball control and power.
- Can make ball control difficult, as the ball tends to bounce off during handling.
- This type is recommended for professional and power-oriented players; it is suitable for hard slap shots and an aggressive style of play.
The shape of the handle in the upper part of the stick. The grip can be oval or rounded. Neither type is objectively better than the other – it all depends on personal preferences.
Floorball sticks are made of three main materials. The materials determine stick properties such as weight, durability, and service life.
Less expensive, but at the expense of lower durability and higher weight. More suitable for beginners.
Glassfibre sticks are very strong and lightweight. The stick is slightly more fragile than a carbon stick. An inexpensive material commonly used for basic models.
The most widely used additive material - the greater the carbon fibre ratio, the higher the price. These sticks are lightweight, highly durable, and better absorb shocks and vibrations. Slap shots have lower feedback force.
