Your field hockey stick is
your main weapon out there on the field. It's your central connection to
the ball, and an extension of your personal talents. When you're looking
for a new field hockey stick you need to find the one that best suits
your talents, skills, personal style, and budget. But how do you decide,
and what are you really looking for? Is a $30 stick so much worse than a
$100 one? What size is best for you? Does your position matter? Which
brand is the best?

the best stick for them. Well, we're here to help you along

First off, it's
important to learn more about how to choose the best field hockey stick,
how sticks are priced, sized, built, and designed, so you can make the
most informed decision.

yourself less room for error, and are going to need a higher level of
skill to perform effectively with it. When looking for a competitive
level stick, it's important that you find the stick that will compliment
your style of play, and your inherent skill, instead of just going for
the really expensive one that must be the best. Trust us, we'd rather
you have a great stick that's perfect for your game, than make a few
