Hockey stick review: Y1 Olympic

Y1 Olympic LTD X 

Make: Y1 
Model: Olympic Ltd X 
Shape: LB 
Bow: Dynamic Bow – 24.5 mm, 200mm from head 
Carbon: 95% premium grade Carbon 
Price: c. £260 


Designed with a slightly thinned head profile allowing you to get under the ball more easily. It has the Y1 Dynamic Bow for the perfect slingshot action when drag flicking. As used by Belgium international drag flicker and top goal-scorer in the Dutch Hoofdklasse, Alex Hendrickx.  

The 2021/22 LTD LB X is manufactured with specially enhanced Swedish Carbon to increase the power of the stick to a level above the usual 90/100% carbon sticks, whilst allowing the stick to retain an incredibly soft touch. 

THP Verdict: 

The stiff feel, look, shape and profile of this stick all make it ideal for the flair player. If you’re a forward who likes taking on defenders and using 3D skills before sending the ball rifling into the top corner, then this may well be the stick for you.
