The heart and soul of the XCORE 9 stick is the the XCORE blade. The patented XCORE blade technology will transform you into a more accurate shooter by producing, on average, 30% more spin on the puck on contact. This leads to cleaner, heavier shots that will help you hit your target with more precision, more often. The strategically positioned XCORE insert in the blade provides the industry’s first true “wood-like feel” with unparalleled puck control when receiving a pass or handling the puck. All TRUE sticks are manufactured using patented Axenic technology. This process seamlessly co-molds the shaft and the blade while removing unnecessary weight from the tip and allows the shaft and blade to work as a single cohesive unit which will provide better feedback. The process also improves the overall balance and feel. SmartPly technology incorporated into the shaft’s inner layers is used to control torsional stiffness for better feel and stick control. Unidirectional fibers control the stiffness and flex to protect from impact damage while additional torsional and hoop layers increase the stick’s impact strength.
