Intro/New Features
The TRUE Catalyst 5X Stick offers incredible performance, durability, and playability at this opening price-point. It weighs just 355 grams with the playability and feel of top-end sticks from just a few years ago. If you are looking to get great value and an ever better price, this stick is the one for you.

Stick Flex Profile
The Catalyst 5X Hockey Stick features a mid-zone flex that loads easily. A stiff taper zone maximizes shooting and passing accuracy.


Shaft Construction
The advanced Axenic one-piece construction helps to shed weight and improves the overall performance compared to its fused two-piece counterparts. Axenic also works with the mid-kick flex profile to give players hard shot power with minimal effort, making it especially ideal for defenseman or players who just like to shoot from further out on the net.

Blade Construction & Stiffness
The major improvements in this opening price point stick can be found in the improved blade technology. The 5X utilizes TRUE Hockey’s patented BRT+ (Braided Rib Technology Plus). This blade design has been utilized in the AX9 top of the line stick in 2019, and is now found in the 5X. It creates a stronger, lighter blade with increased heel durability - outperforming any other stick at this price point in strength and consistency.

Graphics
New to this season TRUE has introduced the Catalyst family, and with a new family comes new graphics. The 5X features a soft glossy black base with gold and white accents throughout. The sleek matte black blade pulls the entire stick together quite nicely.

Grip
The 5X features a soft gloss grip shaft to allow your hands to securely hold the stick at all times.

Hockey Player Stick Sizing & Information Guide

Selecting the right stick for you.
When it comes to sizing a Hockey Stick, the length tends to be a preference. Sticks come in Senior, Intermediate, Junior and Youth lengths with corresponding flex options. You will need to consider your weight and height or the person you are buying for in order to choose the correct size. Intermediate, Junior, and Youth hockey sticks will have smaller shaft dimensions, making them easier for young players to hold and control.

A stick can always be cut down in length, and will usually be cut down for kids. However, selecting a hockey stock too long in length or the wrong flex can hinder performance. For kids, junior, intermediate and senior all come in roughly standards length. In some cases, each Junior flex will be a different length of stick. Look at each and compare the height of the player you are buying for.

Flex can be tricky to pick as every hockey player is different and has their own preference. You can think of flex numbers as pounds of force. Having too stiff or too whippy a stick can hinder performance in their own ways.

Personalizing your stick length.
As mentioned before, length is very much personal preference. To determine a benchmark height, stand with your shoes off and the stick against your body with the toe on the ground. As a general rule of thumb we recommend sticks to come up to between your mouth and nose. For kids, or players who are still growing, the maximum height we recommend is eye level.

Mark the shaft of the stick where the height is desired and cut it down to length. Make sure to re-insert the plug from the top to prevent an open composite end at the top of your stick.

When cutting a stick down, keep in mind that the shorter you cut a stick, the stiffer it becomes. As a general rule, a stick increases 3% in stiffness for every inch cut off. If you are unsure how much you want to cut off, take the least amount first so that you can always cut more if necessary. Cutting the stick multiple times will not affect the sticks construction.

Information to Consider

Flex Options
Players want to be able to fully flex the stick. If a stick is too soft, the resulting shot will be inaccurate and weak. If a stick is too stiff, there will be no power behind the shot. Think of the flex number as pounds of force. This is the number of pounds that need to be put into the stick to fully flex it.

Curve Options
In most cases, sticks are offered in multiple blade curve pattern options. Please refer to our blade pattern charts for more information regarding the patterns available.

Kick Point Options
A Mid-kick stick will have a stiffer taper so that it flexes more in the middle of the shaft. These sticks have a longer loading time but offer a more powerful shot, perfect for players taking a lot of slap shots.

A Low-kick stick will have a stiffer middle of the shaft and softer taper so that it flexes at the bottom of the shaft closer to the blade. These sticks will have a much quicker release perfect for quick snap shots and writs shots.
