Grays AC-7 (Aerocore)
Bow: Medium – 24.75mm, 250mm from head
Price: c. £200
In the new Aerocore collection, every element of the stick has been evaluated & optimised to provide the best performing sticks in Grays’ history. Using Aerocore technology the weight distribution is controlled to create a light pickup. The rear spine increases power transfer down the shaft and new handle technology allows for a stiffer composition without compromising control. This combines with the new Dynabow-S shape which features a reshaped head that is ideal for 3D skills and a thicker low backhand zone which helps to execute passes and shots on the reverse side.
This is a fantastic looking stick and a good offering for the intermediate player. It makes trapping the ball relatively easy and has very soft feel. The Low Backhand Zone revolutionises reverse stick hitting, and the AC-7 should be high on the list for those who hit a tomahawk regularly.
