No Composite For Holik

from Eric Marin of NewJerseyDevils.com,

“With a big, long stick, it’s a little softer so that I can really lean into it,” he said. “The kickpoint changes depending on where you put your bottom hand, and that’s not necessarily the case with the composite. That’s one of the reasons that I just couldn’t get used to it.”

One thing Holik will have to get used to, however, is a new brand. With demand waning for wood, Sherwood announced plans in 2007 to cease production of wood sticks in its Sherbrooke, Que., factory and outsource to Estonia and China. As a result, Holik has sampled wooden models made by Reebok.
