    Does the field hockey stick all look the same? Yes, they do look the same apart from colors branding stickers, and sizes. However, there are lots of differences when you examine them in detail with microscopic vision. The devil is in the details, distinct brands create stick molds based on their research. A mold is used to cast a hockey stick to have a distinct shape to enhance the performance of the stick for diverse types of players in field hockey.

    We have done a lot of research to understand the architecture of sticks produced by Malik hockey. We have interviewed the stick maker to understand what goes on behind the scenes to produce optimum-level field hockey sticks. Since we are selling the Malik Hockey brand most of our research revolves around the technology Malik is using to produce world-class sticks. Malik is well-known. an established and respected brand for hockey and produces thousands of sticks every month to cater to the demand of field hockey players around the world.

    Hockey sticks manufactured by Malik fall in two types of molds, MC(Multi Curve) & DC(Dribble Curve).
