Anyone using/had a go with any of the Osaka sticks??
Looks like quite an interesting upcoming brand
Saw a lot of them used by dragons in EHL
It wasn't just dragons, Nic, quite a few of the players at EHL seemed to be using them. We commented on it during the stick checks as it was a new brand to us.
There was a review of the pro Tour on the forum:
Not surprising that KHC Dragons players were using them as I believe Stephen Butler's the boss at Osaka.
Yes/No/Maybe?, when Stephen posted here last year he was given the usual FHF warm welcome.
"I dont work or play with these sticks however I would like to as i think it would be a fun job" - that was what Stephen wrote last year here. Anyway, great to see an Irish legend having such great success in Belgium and at EHL level. We could have done with that old head in the last minute of the the Korean game!
Most of the Belgium internationals use it as well. I think i may be right in saying that Osaka hockey may be available from Gilmour sports for the coming 2012/13 season (UK) . The gear is generally quite expensive so hope gilmour get a good exchange rate!! I have now had the Pro tour low bow and their large white stick bag for half a season and they have been excellent. Looking forward to their Astros shoes which they have delayed many times as they are striving to bring a better product to the market than the current Ascics.
You are correct, we will be officially launching them in July.
