Does anyone know of a place in New England that you can get custom fitted for a hockey stick?
I’m talking about a legit place, not a JV player working at Pure Hockey .
Zeal on North Main St in Providence. A little pricey but they make custom sticks with custom paint jobs.
Curious - why would your kid need a custom stick?
If just cosmetic, have you considered a stick wrap? You can design them yourself on line.
He said 'fitted' not "stickers". There are many kids using the wrong setup... Starting with the length.
That’s a legit question. I’d say 70% of kids are playing with the wrong stick / wrong length / flex / curve by peewee and maybe 50% by midgets. Coaches - high school & prep & some college often don’t have a clue. Someone who knows a little something might be able to make some change fitting equipment. Much of it is preference but my experience has been too many defensemen play with a stick which has too high of a flex and too much curve and too many forwards play with a stick that’s too long.
OP here, just to clarify i'm looking for a fitting.
Color,brand,wraps or stickers are irrelevant.I know the basics on how to to get correct length and so on..
My thinking was,keep in mind I know my kid is NOT "ovi", but I want to make sure my kid is using the correct stick. Is there someone out there that can confirm he is using the correct length,lie,curve and flex? I would be willing to bet almost no one on this board has got all for correct for there kid.
