Sherwood Hockey looks like they are putting forth a solid effort towards gaining stick market share with the release of their latest twig, the Sherwood Nexon 12 hockey stick. The Sherwood Nexon 12 will be the top of the line stick in their brand new Nexon line, and is already being endorsed by players such as Bobby Ryan of the Anaheim Ducks.
Sherwood is describing the Nexon 12 stick as being a true one-piece stick, using the same fibers from the toe of the blade all the way to the butt end of the stick. It’s also going to feature spear shaft construction, which will provide an enhanced low kickpoint. Beyond that, it appears as if you’ll find a lot of specs similar to other one-piece hockey sticks such as being light weight, maximizing energy transfer, great feel of the puck on the ice, and a great feel in your hands as well.
They really nailed the look of the Nexon 12 grip version, featuring a black shaft with blue accents. It looks great standing all by itself in the corner, and would look even better flying around the rink in your hands. The clear version is a bit more plain, however, with a traditional black and white color scheme.
The Sherwood Nexon 12 will only set you back $189.99, which is a modest price these days for a one piece stick. It is currently available from Hockey Monkey, and in mid-November, you can expect the Sherwood Nexon 12 to make its appearance in other retail stores in your area, as well as online.
