"I have been playing hockey since I was 6 years old, using (and breaking) lots of sticks during that time...sorry Mom...
I was looking forward to trying the Colt 2 Raw hockey stick. This was my first "custom stick", and I was super excited. I found it pretty cool that I was able to choose the flex and curve of the stick, as well as the "grippiness" of the shaft. With the ability to customize your stick to your preference via their website, you can truly have a hockey stick that matches your exact needs.
This is a composite stick covered with Nanovate™ Nickel Cobalt technology, which makes it super light and durable. When it first came in the mail, I thought it was a joke and that the box was empty! But no, it was really in there. So light, it's incredible! This makes it easier to control the puck, helps with wrist-shots and creates a killer slap-shot.
Legend has it that the colt 2 Raw is “unbreakable”, so my friends and I decided to put that claim to the test. We smashed it against the boards, against the ice, but sadly (read thankfully) nothing happened! It's amazing how such a light stick can be so durable, and I can't image anyone in the NHL being able to break one on a slap-shot. They should add that to the Skills Competition for the All-Stars weekend! That would be fun to watch!
This super high-end stick also has a reasonable price compared to other high quality sticks with a heftier price tag. And of course, it's pretty cool that it's made right here in Canada.
Overall the Colt 2 Raw is a great stick and I would highly recommend it."
Thanks Nico, nice job!
