The manufacturing process is the most important part to creating quality hockey sticks as the performances are influenced by a few production factors.
The Lay-up is the Gryphon performance ‘X’ factor. We do this differently, it is an art, it is a sixth sense based on years of experience and the knowledge of how to best achieve the desired result of power and a great crisp feel to allow that instant response from the players hands for exceptional ball control. This cannot be achieved using 100% of anything.
Factors influencing stick performances
This is the chemical structure that binds the different materials together.
This is what we call ‘Lay-up’ and defines how the materials are used and located on the stick.
The stick is created through the moulding process of high pressure and heat.
The stick’s shape covers desirable characteristics required by players to achieve specific skills with the ball and influences stiffness and feel and the stick..
3. Moulding Process
The moulding process is where the stick lay-up and is placed into its corresponding physical mould for the moulding process.
The stick is created through the moulding process of high pressure and heat to create the desired playing characteristics. The pressure and its consistency during the moulding process is crucial in determining the sticks stiffness, strength and feel.
The shape describes the stick's profiles which is defined by :
- The handle and shaft width and depth
- The curve position and the curve peak
- The head shape profile defined by its thickness, blade, profile and the length of the toe
The stick's shape covers desirable characteristics required by players to achieve specific skills with the ball. The sticks shape also influences the sticks stiffness and feel.
