Buying tips

Choose your blade
Choosing the stick
Size of shoes
Goalie equipment

Blade - left or right

If the blade is marked as “left” means that you hold your left-hand lower on the stick than your right hand and the stick is on the left side of your body. Right hand - in case your right hand lower on the

The stiffness of the blade

The stiffness of the blade is influenced by a material, which the blade is produced from:

Soft (also known as: SB, S, Soft) - the blade is produced from a soft material

Advantages:
  • better touch on the soft surface
  • easier ball control - ball handling, passing, shooting
  • good for wrist shooting and technical players
Disadvantages:
  • it twists when makes a pressure on the blade


Medium (also known as: MB, PE, M, Endurance, Medium) - blades are produced from medium material

Advantages:
  • stiffer when pressing on the blade
  • suitable for technical players, which like wristshots and sometimes golf shots
Disadvantages:
  • if a player is not technically skilled then the ball can easily jumped off the blade
  • harder for using on soft surfaces - e.g. on rubber

Hard (also known as: PE-H, HB, Radical, hard) - blades are produced from a medium

Advantages:
  • the blade is not twisted while shooting/passing
  • good for slap shot/ golf shot from long distance from the goal
Disadvantages:
  • if a player is not perfectly technically skilled then the ball can easily jumped off the blade
  • harder for using on soft surfaces - e.g. on rubber

Medium and hard blades is not recommended for beginners, children and players which play often on the soft surface.

Choosing the right shape of the blade

The floorball blade is essential for quality floorball stick. We can say that if the shaft is not quality and the blade is quality you can somehow play, but if the blade is bad players cannot play well.
Blades can be divided in two groups:

1) Concave (there is no need to make a curve of the blade)

Advantages:
  • the blade does not need to be curved
  • the curve is usually made ideally for shooting
Disadvantages:
  • curving possibilities are limited
  • there is an impact on forhand side of the blade, while the backhand side is undervaluated

2) Classic

We can say, that classic blade can be formed to be curved.

Lengths of the sticks

There are two lengths mentioned in the floorball stick page:

  1. The shaft length e.g. "96cm"
  2. The length of the stick including the blade e.g. "(=106cm)". This value is aprox. 10cm bigger than the first value.
Floorball shaft length

Body height Shaft length
110 cm 50-55 cm
115 cm 50-55 cm
120 cm 60-67 cm
125 cm 60-67 cm
130 cm 70-80 cm
135 cm 70-80 cm
140 cm 80-85 cm
145 cm 80-85 cm
150 cm 85-87 cm
155 cm 85-92 cm
160 cm 90-92 cm
165 cm 90-92 cm
170 cm 92-95 cm
175 cm 95-96 cm
180 cm 95-98 cm
185 cm 96-103 cm
190 cm 100-103 cm
> 195 cm 103-105 cm

The lengths are individual and they can differ on 1-2 cm.

Why to buy a shorter stick?

  • better ball handling near body (better covering)

Why to buy longer stick?

  • a long stick is the best for getting balls from opponents
  • the player does not need to make a pressure on the back


Optimal length of the stick allows you to get the right angle for passing/shooting, you cannot learn properly floorball skills without this angle.
The most of sticks can be cut to custom length.

Choosing the right flex of the stick

The stick flex is published at all floorball sticks as a number. The higher the number is the softer the stick is.

The hardness of the stick allows you to move the power from hand to the stick while passing/shooting, the ball is thus kicked off the blade. It is possible to make hard shots with a soft stick.

General rule says, that children and players, who don’t have enough power in their arms choose softer sticks 29 - 36mm. Medium strong players choose the flex 26 - 28mm. Players who are strong enough to bend a stick like a bow choose 23-25mm.

The choice depends on power in hands and arms, not weight of players. If a player of big belly and weak arms does not bend the stick a lot, because the stick is too hard, then he/she bought a wrong stick.

According to IFF (international floorball federation), there is a tolerance 2mm in the flex values. Sometimes players buy a stick of 26mm flex and it is the stick of 24mm an opposite can be the stick o 28mm - that means there can be 4mm difference between two sticks of 26mm.

Choosing the shaft shape

There are two basic groups of shaft shapes:

  • round - most common, you can feel a round profile while holding the stick
  • oval - oval profile of the shaft

You can find both types within straight and curved shafts - in this case the shaft is curved to get a better angle while shooting by a wrist. There are also shafts, which are double curved, twisted or a thinner walls.

There are also types of the shafts, which do not pass on vibrations to hands.

Children should start with a straight shaft, after some years of practising they can choose their favorite shaft technology.

Shaft material

Shaft material influence mainly preferences of the stick. There are several basic groups of the material:

Glassfiber

The material is a mixture of glass fibers reinforced by resin.

Advantages:
  • Relatively good durability for this price
  • low price
Disadvantages:
  • the heaviest material for sticks at all

Cabon Composite (or Composite)

Composite is a mixture of Carbon and glassfibre. It is necessary to pay attention on the proportion between carbon and glassfiber. You should get to know this proportion. The more Carbon sticks contents better quality the stick is.

Advantages:
  • good durability of average price
  • lower price
Disadvantages:
  • a little bit heavier material

Carbon

Competition sticks are produced from Carbon fibres. Recently this kind of material was improved - there is now several types of the Carbon - Nano Carbon, Japanese Carbon etc. New types of Carbon are lighter, some of them are much fragile. Fragility is reinforced by sometimes by a layer of Kevlar. Kevlar is more expensive, but supplies sufficient durability for the stick.

Advantages:
  • durability
  • lightness
Disadvantages:
  • higher price

The stick and the shaft should be attractive for players, but players should realize, that the most important are stick preferences.

Choosing the right size of the shoes, skates

There is a size table at each product’s page, the price table says how to convert the length of the foot to the correct size.

How to get foot’s length? See the following image:

Foot measurement

When you measure the foot, we recommend to the foot length in case of:
a) sports shoes: 0,25 - 0,5cm
b) skates (winter and summer): 0,5cm

Then you can find the related value in size table - there are sizes in cm and in US or UK sizing.

Choosing goalie equipment

All dimensions are centimeters. They represents mean value of a body type. The equipment should be looser. If dimensions for height and chest are different, we recommend to use chest dimension. If dimensions for seat and waist are different, we recommend to use seat dimension.
