If you thought TRUE was a new company, guess again. With over 14 years of experience and over 2 million sticks produced for leading hockey companies, TRUE is making a splash into the stick market by coming direct to you! As the world leader of golf shaft technology TRUE is set on providing the hockey industry with superior stick designs made from the highest quality materials and strictest manufacturing processes. Bent on providing pure domination at every level of the game, TRUE designed the A4.5 and rest of the “A” series line with just that in mind.
TRUE utilized a high pressure clave molding process which they patented under the title “Axenic Technology.” The advantage of using this manufacturing process is it yields a true one-piece hockey stick and results in very consistent internal walls and shaft shape, a very low void content, pure uninterupted flexural energy transfer and of course an amazing balance and feel. Working alongside the Axenic Technology, Smartply Technology is the “recipe” TRUE implemented for performance and industry leading impact strength. Smartply tech is a laminate design that is used with up to 25 inner layers of unidirectional carbon fiber; the way the fibers are angled and the order of those angles are what control torsional stiffness and protect from impact damage and provide added durability.
The A4.5 has a 100% 3K carbon fiber core wrapped in fiber glass and has a graduated mid-flex profile for increased performance and feel in all game situations. The blade is outfitted with two full length ribs that join the front and rear faces of the blade. These ribs are more efficient at transferring energy and help prevent the foam core from breaking down, losing its stiffness and promoting more pop and feel. TRUE also added a nice non-skid, light sandpaper type of finish to their blade to add grip.
Made from the highest quality materials and strictest manufacturing processes, it is no doubt that the A4.5 stick is a leader in performance and value at its price point. Designed for any type of player looking for a performance stick without compromising durability, TRUE’s A4.5 may be for you!
