“ DeBeer / Type: Racquet Sports „
I bought this stick from ebay as a spare a few weeks ago and have been using it a lot to get used to it and because as I mention in my other review, my STX stick hasn't been properly worn in yet and the leathers are stretching so it isn't really ok to play yet. This stick cost me £14 but it was £45 new so it is still on the cheaper part of the spectrum. It is a commonly found stick and I think you can easily buy it from most UK resellers like Zentihsports.com The stick comes in a few colours like green, I think blue and pink, but luckilly (for me) I managed to buy a pink one! it is 109cm in length from the bottom of the shaft to the top of the pocket and it has a slighly different head pocket shape to that of the STX shape. It is asy to use and it is a fairly lightweight stick. The head is trung with plastic sort of strips which mean that they won't extend etc during use. It makes the pocket fairly shallow which is good as it conforms to the standard practice game regulations. This is a common stick for juniors and beginners although it suts more advanced players too and I know a whole university team plays with this stick so it must be fine. As with all sticks with aluminium shats, it does get cold on your hands whch can be a little uncomfortable but it is fine, easy to use, looks good and is easy and fun to play with.
