A strong stick to impose your gameplay underwater.
Sold as a pair: one white stick and one black stick.
A solid stick ideal for anyone who likes big pass, loves a strong hook, large surface area for wall and melee play and a large comfy handle textured with a thumb-grip for incredible handling.
The front side and the back side of the stick are fully textured for the best control of puck rolling possible. They are also curved and have a 10-degree bevel for an easier and quicker way to make a pass or shoot. Its tapered profile facilitates hand speed and quick skills.
The Hard Tomahawk is made from a solid polyurethane plastic and reinforced with fiberglass for extra strength. It’s 285mm long and weighs roughly 140g.
The shape is the same in both models. What changes are the matter used for each stick:
The “hard” version is made from a tough hard and durable polyurethane material and are reinforced with fiberglass strands. In other words, this is the simplest version of any sticks proposed by Hydro UWH.
The “ghost” version is a more advanced technology compared to traditional hard sticks.
The particularity of this version is that it’s has a "rubberised" coating which is softer allowing to absorb impacts. The rubber grips the puck in the same way that car tyres grip the road, using grooves and textures to channel water away from the contact area. The result is a stick with another level of puck control and feel when compared to a standard hard plastic stick. The rubber also ads a bouncy effect on the puck which facilitates instant shoots or pass.
The core has also some more advanced materials: it’s constructed from tough polyurethane reinforced with a kevlar-carbon hybrid material to give maximum strength and impact resistance.
Finally, this new technology allows Hydro UWH to put huge great holes in the stick which allow the water through, dropping resistance drastically and giving you the possibly to play fast with a big stick.
Hydro UWH sticks were exclusively designed to practice underwater hockey. We advise not to use it for non-underwater hockey purpose.
Avoid corrosive products, it may damage the duration of materials in time. If you want to wash your sticks simply clean it with soap and water.
If the sticks are marked with an opposite colour (like with mark on black stick and black mark on a white stick) caused by a friction, use an erasing method to clean you sticks.
If your sticks suffered from a violent impact (like on goals or the edge of a tile) and that it has created a splinter, use a sanding technique with thin sandpaper to come back to the original smoothness of your sticks.
