TK 1.2 Late Bow Plus Composite Field Hockey Stick
Picking up the famous Illuminate mould, our TK 1.2 model is designed for players looking to improve pick up when flicking. Japanese Carbon offers you exceptional power output and ultra-lightweight. The IDS system will take care of any vibrations, whilst the NPR spread throughout the construction of the stick further enhances the stiffness and that silky-smooth feel. An extreme late placement of the bow is combined with a concave groove placed in the lower third of the shaft to assist pick up and increase slingshot momentum when flicking.
• Level: Elite
• Shape: Low Bow with Groove
• Composition: 80% Carbon, 10% Fiberglass, 10% aramid
THE LOW BOW This low bow is typically about 25mm and the highest point is close to the toe of the stick. This shape offers extra assistance with lifting the ball, aerials and drag flicking, as well as dynamic ball movement.
Elite Sticks - At the elite level, innovation and technology combine to create the most advanced hockey sticks in the world. They are on the cutting edge of development so they evolve each year with the game! These sticks are designed to maximize power without sacrificing touch.
12K CARBON - A 12K spread tow carbon fiber which sees the raw carbon fiber undergo an unbundling process aligning the fibers precisely on their axis which enables them to vastly improve performance compared to unbundled materials. This results in a stick that can maximize performance from its raw materials.
Integrated Dampening System - Included in the handle within the structure of the stick is an enhanced piezoelectric fiber cell which converts vibration waves firstly to an electrical signal which is then dissipated as heat energy, all of which is undetectable to the player. By using IDS, we are able to produce sticks with extreme stiffness without the need to compromise on touch and feel.
NANO POLYMER REINFORCEMENT - A self-assembling group of co-polymers are linked together and then spread throughout the structure of the stick to increase the laminate strength. In conventional constructions, glassfibre is needed to improve the feel and therefore add weight. By adding the NPR to the epoxy, we are able to significantly increase the impact strength and at the same time offer sticks with much greater feel despite their ultra-high stiffness.
