Rival Scoop X 

Make: Rival 
Model: Scoop X 
Shape: Concave 
Bow: Low – 24.5mm, 200mm from head 
Carbon: 95% Japanese Carbon 
Price: c. £220 


A low bow and concave groove all down the shaft of the stick right to a lip on the slim head make drag-flicking easy. 

95% high quality Japanese carbon and 5% military grad Dupont Kevlar make a stiff and powerful stick. Combined with the GripX, rough feel covering on the head of the stick allows you to control the ball with ease. 

THP Verdict: 

The Rival Scoop X is an excellent offering for aspiring drag flickers, and 3D dribblers. The shape of it means that any deficiencies in your technique are minimised and the result is still good. Also, those of you who like a bit of theatre to their finishing and see the ball in the roof of the net will enjoy this offering.
