SQUARE1 is the designation for floorball sticks with hockey grip. Shafts with this designation are both strong and very light. Exel puts emphasis on perfect balance and high durability. These are perfect floorball sticks especially for players coming from a hockey background, or for those who do not like the traditional round or oval grip. SQUARE1 floorball sticks are made of two basic materials:
Fiberglass: A strong material that makes the floorball stick stronger and better transmits the force from the shaft to the blade and thus to the floorball ball.
Composite: Composite is a mixture of carbon and fiberglass. Both carbon and fiberglass have positive and negative properties. To get the best ones (lightness of carbon and strength of composite) these 2 materials are combined. You can find combinations in different proportions. The higher the ratio of carbon to composite, the better the properties of the floorball stick. On the other hand, the more fiberglass, the stronger the floorball stick and the better the power transfer.
There are several types of handling shapes, but there is no universal recommendation which shape is the best. It is just a subjective feeling. The Exel handling shapes are:
ROUND - This is a round handling shape. 90% of floorball sticks have this round handling shape.
OVAL/SWEOVAL - This is an oval handling shape. This oval handling shape provides a firmer grip on the stick, but there is higher weight because of more material. This type of handling shape is suitable for players with larger palms.
HOCKEY(SQUARE) This is a square handling shape. This hockey handling shape provides a firmer grip on the stick, but there is higher weight because of more material. This type of handling shape is suitable for players with larger palms. This handling shape is an ideal variant for players moving from hockey to floorball.
DROP OVAL - half oval profile. This handling shape is (as the name suggests) shaped like a drop. The grip has a round shape on its top side and an oval shape on its bottom side. It is a compromise between these two profiles. The feel of this handling shape is closer to the round profile than the oval one. Floorball stick with this profile have the advantage that they fit precisely in your hands. The palm holds the round part and the fingers hold the oval one. This means that the floorball stick hardly slips. However, the player has to get used to this grip.
THIN OVAL - Thin oval represents a grip in the form of a narrower oval. It differs from the classic OVAL/SWEOVAL by its grip thickness. This profile is suitable for players who prefer a thinner grip.
This blade stands out for its simplicity and lightness. It can be shaped very well to your liking. Ice is a pre-curved blade, 2/3 of its length straight and the tip is slightly curved downwards. This shape can help you with dribbling and sweeper shooting.
The blade has a high cavity, which can again help you with your sweeper shooting and ball control. This is one of the most curved blades from Exel. Its construction makes the blade suitable for passing, dribbling and spins.
The blade has reinforced middle ribs, which helps the blade hold its shape and gives it the hardness it needs. There is a milling on the bottom edge, which offers you excellent ball control, lower friction and therefore faster shots. The weight of the blade is 70 grams.
