Our equipment expert tries out the latest field hockey sticks to hit the market and makes his verdict
Grays Aerocore 7 (AC 7)
Bow size: 24.75 mm
Bow Position: 200 mm
Space industry ‘aerocore’ technology to give soft touch and feel without compromising on power.
The unique Jumbow-S shape allowing for easier carrying, passing, and hitting, whilst maintaining an ultra-low bow for flicking. The ‘Low Backhand Zone’ (LBZ) is a large, flattened area on the reverse allowing for easier backhand strikes.
The AC-7 has improved so much since its first inception. It feels connected and has a unique cushioned feel on the dribble, with the Jumbow-S allowing easier ball movement than most low bows.
The hit and slap are consistent and give good power for the price. The LBZ is a fantastic feature of the stick and if the reverse is an area of your game that you’d like to exploit then Grays AC 7 might be the one for you.
