RRP: £265

The JDH APX795 is the top-of-the-range stick from Jamie Dwyer’s own company JDH – Jamie Dwyer Hockey. The APX795 has a custom core and layup designed by the five-time world player of the year himself.

I met with Dwyer over the summer and discussed the design of his sticks. He is very particular about equipment and has applied his attention to detail in the design of the moulds for the sticks, paying great attention to balance points.

The APX795 is definitely aimed at the elite players – being so stiff. The stick features a Kevlar reinforced head for increased durability and uses the ‘Nano Tech Resin System’ for strength, while maintaining the crucial soft touch feel.

This is a very hard-hitting stick, with good feel – well worth a go!

Grays G7500

RRP £50.00

Grays have finally released a shoe that can compete in the modern hockey market and at a competitive price.

With the new trend for bright and flashy shoes the red/lime is a great combo. The shoe fits well with a snug lightweight upper liner. And this is a light shoe – which I prefer.

The sole grips well on both sand and water turf and is stable when changing direction quickly.

There is good support for your foot through the heel and mid sole which makes for a very comfortable shoe.
