It looks as though Easton Hockey will be reviving their popular Synergy name with a new line of sticks in 2014. The upcoming Easton Synergy HTX stick has started to leak online, and it has a solid look to it.
The Easton Synergy HTX stick will feature Hypertuned technology which is said to take loading and release to a new level. According to Easton, Hypertuned technology “tailors the flex of each blade specifically to the shaft flex to create a more responsive blade for every player.” So essentially, an 85 flex shaft will have a tuned blade stiffness specifically for that 85 flex shaft. Likewise, the 100 flex shaft will have a blade tuned for that, and so on.
Additionally, the Easton Synergy HTX stick will utilize Hypertoe technology. This is also used on the V9 and V9E sticks and combines a stiffer toe with a softened taper to create more force with the same load.
Easton’s new Synergy HTX stick will be available in senior, intermediate, junior and youth sizes. Senior sizes will feature 110, 100, 85 and 75 flexes, with a variety of patterns.
