Some of the sticks that are in use in the teams in TIlburg (netherlands) All of them are polyurethaan sticks (selfmade) What sort of stick do you use? And why.

I self play left handed with an S.H.3 An stick in front very nic to shoot with and with the hook very fast to move the puck. Because the puck is near the hand i have more controll over the puck. IŠm an midfield or defender player.


From white to black
1. S.H.2
2. S.W.1 (silent willy)
3. S.H.3
4. Left standard stick/pusher (very nice for youth)

Some other sticks

The 2 on the left side are left handed sticks (the S.H.1 and the S.H.2)

1. 2.
Mines home made - love it, but its made of hard wood and is worn, oh so worn, worn out Confused
1. shows the general shape of the stick (right handed)
2. shows the angle of the forward edge (this lifts the puck when flicking)

Need to mold one the same out of the polyeurethane material if I can find some...

I have some more pictures off the sticks i made for my Dutch/tilburg teams. Tey all are made from P.U. 115 (maybe it is easy to look for now you now which PU it is.)



And not realy for play but it is easy to make.

Little sticks for by your keys
An heavy stick (red one) for training at home for your shot
An heave stick (white.grey, grey is lead) THis is not for playing the game. But for heavy training.
The puck is an canam puck from canada. Onley on the photo for the size of the sticks to see.

Thanks for PU. I'll see if can find and meantime will make some molds up, ready to try some shapes out. Like your designs, especially putting different compounds in (lead fragments) etc. ... and the idea of a weighted pusher for dry practice is great concept.

We can make that stick for you in polyurethane We only need one stick from you to make the mold with silicon rubber and then we can make very easy exact the same sticks/pushers.

You will not be the first in the world. Others in the world let us make there sticks before them.
Many people now them around the world. The pushers/stick from the Netherland/Tilburg. Made from polyurethane . In many countries they now those pushers/stick. Spain, Belgium, south Africa , Australia and not to forget the Netherlands.

Because the pushers are made in a mold every stick in every model is the same as the original, thatís why the Tilburg sticks/pushers are very popular . Because the price off the material is going to be more expensive we can no longer make them on the well known low price off 12,5 Euro a pair. After we now how expensive the material becomes we now the new price. We think it will be between the 15 and 17 Euro per pair. (1 white and 1 black pusher/stick) We hope you understand that itís a hobby to make those pushers/stick and we can en will not make them below the material price.

(price is exclusive sending costs)
