The True AX9 Hockey stick is new for 2020, featuring an optimized low kick profile that delivers a lightning-quick, explosive release from any position on the ice, with effortless energy loading. As True's highest performing hockey stick, most advanced design to date, the AX9 leverages our FiberShield technology for greater durability with a 5% weight reduction and optimized balance point versus its predecessor.
FiberShield Technology disperses low-density nanoparticles, 10nm in diameter, throughout the blade and shaft of the stick. The unique formula and mixing procedure yields consistent particle dispersion and stiffness, while decreasing overall weight and providing improved durability. In plain English, FiberShield Technology is designed to provide you superior impact strength and durability throughout the blade and shaft of the stick.
The 2020 AX9 incorporates True's patented BRT+ technology in the blade design for a stronger, lighter blade with increased heel durability. With this technology, the new AX9 should outperform its predecessor in strength and consistency.
True's patented Axenic Technology combines a compression molded shaft into a true one-piece stick. Industry-leading Axenic technology results in a seamless build, giving player’s the feeling of having their hands in direct contact with the puck.
SmartPly is a process by which fiber angles, and the order of those angles, are optimized in up to 25 layers of unidirectional carbon fiber in a single shaft. SmartPly technology creates the perfect marriage between weight, balance, and industry-leading impact strength.
Redefined Low Kick-Point
With a flex point of the AX9 near the hosel in the bottom third of the shaft, players experience effortless energy loading and an explosive release.
Carbon Tow Weaves - Optimized Balance
Through our FiberShield formula which yields consistent particle distribution and stiffness, as well as lighter carbon tow weaves, we’ve produced a lighter, more responsive stick than its predecessor.
