TRUE utilized a high pressure clave molding process which they patented under the title “Axenic Technology.” The advantage of using this manufacturing process is it yields a true one-piece hockey stick which results in very consistent internal walls and shaft shape, a very low void content, pure uninterrupted flexural energy transfer and of course an amazing balance and feel. Working alongside the Axenic Technology, Smartply Technology is the “recipe” TRUE implemented to optimize performance, weight and industry leading impact strength. Smartply tech is a laminate design that is used with up to 25 inner layers of unidirectional carbon fiber; the way the fibers are angled and the order of those angles are what control torsional stiffness and protect from impact damage while maximizing performance and durability.
The A6.0 is 100% 3K carbon fiber weave and has a graduated mid-flex profile for optimal performance and feel in all game situations. With TRUE’s Smartflex Technology, the top of the shaft is softer to allow the player to add leverage on wrist shots and increased feel. This tech is also applied from the center of shaft to the blade with a stiffer tip section that allows for stability and accuracy in the slapshot motion. New for 2016 is the BRT blade technology. The seamless braided tubes located at the center and and bottom of the blade produce the longest lasting and most consistent blade we’ve ever made, up to 50% stronger than its predecessor the ABII technology!
Made from the highest quality materials and strictest manufacturing processes, it is no doubt that the super light A6.0 SBP stick is one of the best high performance sticks on the market. From elite players to house league players, if you are looking for a lightweight pure shooters stick with unparalleled strength, power and balance, then TRUE’s A6.0 SBP stick is for you!
The Ultimate Shooter’s Stick. Superior Strength. Optimal Balance. Maximum Power.
STRENGTH – The A6.0 SBP stick incorporates TRUE Hockey’s BRT blade technology, producing the longest lasting and most consistent blade we’ve ever made. The player’s benefits are extreme impact strength and consistency in their shot.
BALANCE – The ultra-consistent wall thickness of TRUE’s one-piece construction optimizes stick weight. The A6.0 SBP offers extreme durability, with an ultra-lightweight feel for unmatched balance and optimized performance.
POWER – The top of the shaft is softer for easy energy loading, the middle is optimized for energy transfer, and the bottom is designed for no energy loss to ensure the puck explodes off the blade. The result is overall improved player performance and maximum power for all shot types.
True has made sticks for all the top brands for a number of years (CCM), as well as golf clubs shafts (Taylor Made). Whether they do well or not is a matter of marketing, because the quality of these sticks are at least as good as anybodies, probably better!
- Most are Gen 2 True A6.0
- Sticks come in grip unless otherwise specified
- Pro stock hockey sticks are typically more reinforced to perform at elite levels, but they do not come with a manufactures warranty
- Unmarked is Regular Height = 61″ shaft (Approx. 66″ total)
- 64″ Is Pro Stock Extended = 64″ shaft (Approx. 69″ total)
- 66″ – Pro Stock Double Extended = 66″ (71″ or more)
- Note: cutting extended length pro stock sticks do not increase flex!
