Hockey stick review: Otter O90

Otter O90 

Make: Otter 
Model: O90 
Bow: Ultra Low – 24.75mm, 200mm from head #
Carbon: 90% Premium Japanese Carbon 
Price: c. £170 


The ‘O’ or Otter range sticks have been crafted to improve 3D skills which are essential in today’s modern game. It is a drag-flicker’s dream with a 24.75 mm bend, at a 200 mm bend point, and has a concave shaft for an enhanced slingshot action, which works by keeping the ball in the shaft whilst drag-flicking. 

The thinned head and toe which allow for improved pickup of the ball when performing 3D skills that are essential in the modern game. Made with Japanese Toray Carbon, the stick retains its soft touch, even with a high carbon composition, whilst maximising your hitting and slapping power. 

THP Verdict: 

The O90 is excellent value. It is an incredibly light stick with nice touch and a solid strike. It is also great on the flick. The feel of stick enables good control for players of all standards. If you’re a touch player who also hits regularly and fancies their flicking skills, then you should definitely check it out.

  1. Stick feels good and plays well however after the first training session a large chunk of the outer layer had chipped off. One game later this doubled in size and means the main section of the grip is now already gone after 3 hours of play. The reply from customer service was that during the course of play it is often normal for the outer wrap of a hockey stick to chip or flake – no surprise about how quickly the stick has deteriorated. Despite sending pictures and explaining the situation I was instructed to ‘keep playing as usual’ and basically go away! It’s a decent stick, just don’t expect it to last, or to get any help once you’ve bought it.
