Hockey stick review: Mercian Evolution

Mercian Evolution CKF90 

Make: Mercian 
Model: Evolution CKF90 
Bow: Ultimate Low – 24.5mm, 200mm from head 
Carbon: 90% premium grade Carbon 
Price: c. £160 


The 90% carbon lay-up is placed across a fibreglass micro-skeleton giving good touch and feel with the Kevlar increasing durability and laminate bonding. The Ultimate (extreme) low bend is designed to aid drag-flicking, aerials and 3D skills. 

Piezo-electric fibres are included in all the Evolution sticks they are used to ‘harvest’ the vibrations created in these super-stiff sticks and turn them into heat. The result of this is efficient vibration dampening. 

THP Verdict: 

Overall, The Mercian Evolution CKF 90 is a great choice for aspiring players as it is designed to make all-round execution as straight forward as possible. Up and coming defenders in particular who like to focus on clean touch and pickup along with accurate and pacey slap passing should definitely consider this great value stick.
