The HARDER Zone floorball blade is a new blade for the 2021/22 season. This blade is one of the light and significantly pre-bent blades with high concavity. We recommend it to all players who want fast and sharp shots. Its relatively flat backhend side allows good ball control on the backand side. HARDER is a shooting blade, designed primarily for sweeper and slap shoot.
HARDER is a combination of several blades. The basic shape, bend and reinforcement (top and bottom) of the edge is from Hyper blades. Zone removed 1 vertical rib from the Hyper blade and added 1 horizontal rib. This horizontal rib is located in the heel of the blade. The result of this adjustment is an excellent rigid blade - especially in the heel. HARDER takes its heel construction from the MAKER. This construction also contributes to the stronger heel. So you can shoot really hard!
The blade has a large pre-bend and concavity 9mm. This big concavity and pre-bending positively affects the ball handling. The ball from this blade is accurate and very fast. HARDER has a T-shape profile of horizontal (longitudinal) ribs. This shape strengthens the blade and provides you a larger contact area for the ball. This results in more accurate shooting - especially by slap shot.
There is a milling on the bottom edge. This milling reduces friction with the playing surface. The result is swifter and faster shoots. The ribs at HARDER are reinforced around the perimeter and at the base of the blade. This reinforcement causes the blade not to bend and still retain its shape. So don't be afraid to shoot with force. The heel ribs make the Zone HARDER very stable in the rear third, while the rest of the rib system makes the blade tip more agile. The weight of the blade is 74g, which ranks HARDER among lighter blades.
