Hockey Stick Blade
Hockey Stick Shafts
The kick point of the stick is where the stick flexes (bends) to add speed to your shot. And on the other hand if there is too much flex it will take away some of the power from your shot. Bauer Intelli sense shot technology makes 2 kick points based on the kind of shot you take. CCM has a kick point that changes depending on where your bottom hand is. It adapts to your playing style. Easton has a low kick point so you can get a quick shot off fast. SherWood also has an extremely low kick point to get a shot of quick.
It is important to get the right stick with the right blade, shaft, flex and kick point for you so you can play your best with a stick that helps you out. The blade is where the stick hits the puck. The shaft is where you hold on to the stick. The kick point is where the stick flexes (bends).
