The ORC floorball blade by the Fat Pipe is one of the best blades for technical types of players. Although the blade is very versatile. Basically the most versatile blade by the Fat Pipe. The ORC is a straight blade. This blade has a distinctly smooth and straight backand side. The result is an excellent backahnd game. The forehand side has a concavity of 8 mm, which is the same from the heel to the tip of this blade. The ORC blade is slightly curved at about two-thirds of its length, but the tip still remains straight. Which is not ideal for sweeper shoot at all. Unfortunately, you will also not find the classic Fat Pipe hook on this blade. So sweeper shoot is really more challenging with this blade. However, if you have mastered the technique, it is not an problem for you.
ORC is a rigid blade, not as rigid as, for example, the PWR blade, but it is ideal for slap shot. This fact is also supported by the 5 longitudinal ribs and their fillings in the lower and upper row, which increase the rigidity of the blade. Because of the low weight these fillings are not in the whole parts, but have oval holes in them. Which is just 1 of the many characteristics of this blade.
The Fat Pipe ORC blades are lightweight, with an even recess. They are pre-bent, but they have the straight tip and increased rigidity against unwanted bending. It is one of the most universal blades suitable especially for technical types of players, but it is also popular with shooters. Mainly due to excellent slap shoot. Their weight is 71 grams.
FH, or factory hook means the factory pre-bending of the blade. It doesn't matter if this blade is JAB, ORC, PWR or BONE. FH technology (bending) can be applied to any blade. So what is FH? FH is a simple pre-bend of the blade. The classic manufacturing process ends when the blade is extruded. FH bending continues. The blade is heated up and its tip bends inwards and down. According to the degree of bending, we distinguish 2 types of FH bending:
The blade modified in this way will help you with handles, passing, wrist shooting and a little bit also with sweeper shoot, but it is not significant for sweeper shoot. There is almost no difference between a slap shot and a backand game compared to the original version of the blade.
