The Grays AC8 field hockey stick has been precisely engineered to gain maximum performance. Using Aerocore technology the weight distribution is controlled to create a light pickup. The rear spine increases power transfer down the shaft and new handle technology allows for a stiffer composition without compromising control. This combines with the new Probow-S shape which features a reshaped head that is idea for 3D skills and offers extra surface area on reverse side pickups. A thicker low backhand zone helps to execute passes and shots on the reverse side.
