Sherwood FC700 Intermediate Hockey Foam Core Goalie Stick (Natural/Blue)
Featuring a high-performance composite shaft and high-density foam injected blade and paddle, Sherwood has aimed to pour all of its technology into the Sher-Wood FC700 Goalie Stick that combines the lightweight of the composite shaft with the soft feel of the foam paddle and blade, giving the goalie the best of both worlds.
Looking to develop better qualities than the GS650 series of stick, Sherwood focused heavily on improving blade durability for the FC700. The result is a new design called Carbon Core Blade technology. The carbon plate is built with several layers of extremely durable and light high modulus carbon fiber, protecting the interior foam core while keeping the stick feel the same. The new Carbon Core blade results in improved blade bonding, significantly improved durability, and helps prevent premature breakage.
Designing a better blade wasn’t the only thing that went into the FC700 stick. Sherwood developed a new shaft technology, the Duralight shaft, constructed of high modulus carbon fiber and double concave walls for goalies to maintain a secure grip while playing the puck. The shaft runs through the heel of the blade to prevent the stick from becoming soft over time and optimizes responsiveness and performance of the stick.
Lastly, Sherwood engineers have developed a brand new Foamcore tech, a Proprietary foam material used throughout the line of goal sticks. With the Foamcore technology, the FC series of sticks will feature a slightly thicker blade that is stiffer and more impact resistant.
If you are an intermediate-level goalie looking for a FoamCore feel with a composite shaft, look no further than the Sher-Wood FC700 Goalie Stick.
