    Hi Evan,

    Looks like a very interesting concept. When do you think photo's of the sticks will go up on your website?

    Also, just a quick pointer, it might be worth spell/grammar checking your website (although I appreciate it is a work in progress) as there are a few errors:




    Some of that doesn't make sense!!


    Finally, and most importantly, will there be an introductory sale available to FHF members? :D

    More pictures and tester sticks will be with us early in the new year.

    Yes the website will be continue to be developed and you tube videos are on the way.

    and do not worry when there are sales FHF members will be the first to hear.

    Cheers for the message.

    Pretty standard for a stick with 'new technology'. Like the GR11000 the price won't last.

    "It’s not about how much carbon fibre, it’s about how you use it.”

    Pretty sure Craig and Gryphon have been saying this for years!

    Hi Evan@crownhockey,
    I like the idea of using 3D printing... if that's what you're using? I have a couple of questions:
    - Has this design been approved by FIH?
    - If so, how did you get around rule 2.16 "The edges and the non-playing side (back) of the stick must be rounded and must have a continuous smooth profile. Flat sections along the edges or back of the stick are not permitted."
    - How much extra weight does the vibration backing add to the stick?
    - Does the backing have any other purpose besides vibration control?
    - If you've added that weight, have you reduced the amount of carbon to the stick?
    - I'd like to know which big companies have a 50% return rate. Sounds like you're just plucking numbers out of thin air to make yourselves sound better?
    Will be very interested on hearing your reply

    You've shot down about three stick companies in the past ten days?

    But the thing is he has actually done it. Not just been shut down after saying it.

    I find it quite entertaining...I'm sure he would do well as a Shark on Shark tank.
