Kukla's Korner Hockey

from the Canadian Press:
Will Denis Flaro’s new hockey stick turn you into the next coming of Wayne Gretzky?
Probably not. But the president of Flarrow Hockey Sticks, based in Martintown, northeast of Cornwall, says owning the 9000 Turbine—with its one-of-a-kind design—will put you on the cutting edge of hockey equipment technology.
“We’re in the midst of testing it right now,” said Flaro. “I think it’ll capture a lot of the market.”
The 9000 Turbine, which takes its powerful-sounding name from a graphite model the company used to produce, is modelled on a standard one-piece hockey stick.
But unlike most one-piece graphite or fibreglass sticks—called composites—the core of the 9000 Turbine is filled with wood rather than left hollow. That gives it the lightness of a composite, said Flaro, with the feel and durability of a traditional stick.
