Mercian Evolution 0.1

High Specification, 95% Carbon, Ultimate Bend, elite performance hockey stick.

Designed to maximise energy transfer, the Evolution 0.1 has a 95% carbon construction including a Quad Carbon sleeve (braid)* with 5% Aramid (Kevlar) applied to the three specific stress points within the stick – heel, back-hand edge and bottom of handle. The Ultimate bend aids drag flicking and 3D skill execution with the active molecule ‘piezo-electric fibres’ and m-gel silicon sleeve providing vibration damping. An additional feature is the extra cushioned grip created with a 0.75mm PU foam layer beneath the standard super-soft m-tek grip. The new soft touch lacquer used to finish the stick gives enhanced grip on the shaft for both hand and ball.

* The Quad Carbon Sleeve is a full-length carbon ‘sock’ with three specific extra sleeves applied to the key stress points in the stick – four in total (Quad). The sleeve technology provides the same 360-degree strength seen in braided sticks, enhancing the energy transfer for exceptional hitting power.

The Ultimate Bend is the most aggressive low bend that we have ever made, the maximum bend at the lowest legal point enhances drag flicking and aerial skills, it has a shaft weighting to aid stick head speed but still provide power and balance for the slapping and pushing associated with elite level skill execution. Suited for elite players, players with performance aspirations, desire to drag-flick and/or the ability to change hand position on skill execution.
