Brooklynite hockey

It looks like Brooklynite hockey has gotten started up and their sticks are on the market.

Brooklynite Almighty

Brooklynite Redeemer

Brooklynite D-Force

Their gloves will be out soon!

I'm intrigued by their products. The founders are really good people, and the sticks look awesome too. I'm going to be trying one whenever I get some money.

Yeah I have talked with the boss and he is a real nice guy and their sticks and gloves are actually very good, the Almighty is only 425g and I have only heard great things about it from everyone who has used it

Cheap too, it's not like some Ballistik that's 405g and $350

And the gloves are really nice, check it out on the homepage

oh ofcourse, I guess what I'm saying is it's awful hard to go and drop $200 on a twig sight unseen from a new company.

Yeah, I'm not sure how much I'd trust a brand new startup with a stick. Composite materials are a real pain to design, I'll attest to that as an Engineering student. You could make a decent one quickly, but to make a really good design and figure out exactly how to make it right would take years of trial and error and tweaking with designs. Experience in this area is a big plus.

Gloves on the other hand are much more straightforward. I'm intrigued by their exodus design, would like to see the price on those. If they're as good as they look (tight fit, plenty of mobility and protection) I may have to find a pair when mine wear out.

That's why I'm a little hesitant to try their sticks. I don't know how well they perform. I'll just let somebody else try the stick, and then tell me how it performed.

Apparently they have some of the lightest sticks on the market.

Will be interesting to see how durable they are being that light. I think most kids nowadays buy way too much into the hype of composite.

I would love to try one, but I'm not about to throw that much money at a new company.

I'd like to know if the sticks he is weighing are the exact curve. Because the oldest trick in the book is to weigh the small curve and list that. So, you weigh a Modano and weigh everyone else's in a Sakic and you have a huge difference.

I'm no physics whiz, but the fact that the sticks are not all weighed at the same place also throws things off, no? I mean, in some pictures you can see that the stick is being weighed near the blade, and others near the middle of the shaft...

No, they'll all weigh the same so long as they are resting only on the scale. The guy is good, just rubs a lot of people the wrong way. I hope they do make a dent in the market, but it's hard to compete when you can buy closeout sticks from big names at the same price.

Its got decent balance. Not the best. But pretty good.

Its weight and durability is what makes this stick pretty good though.

Brooklynite spam is like herpes, but without the luxury of Valtrex.

Brooklynite manufacturers great sticks. They are very durable and hold up well. I suggest that you try them if you haven't. Major bang for your buck!

Don't know about that, but since I last visited this thread I indeed heard great things about the Exodus glove. Pretty sure that's what I want to try when I replace my current ones.

oh yeah, The black and orange ones are nice looking.
I sent them an email about two pieces, and I also asked them if they had any broken/defects I can buy from them to make it into a shaft. Ill let y'all know what they say.

Be careful about that, they may not use standard taper sizes.

The 411 I got on sticks was that the only true one piece sticks are made by Easton. The info on the Brooklynite hockey site says that the sticks are one piece carbon fiber which should make them one of the most durable, lightest sticks on the planet.
I can't wait to see which pros start using the sticks first? I'll bet it will be someone who is buying there own Warrior sticks.

I also wonder which retailers are going to stock them.

Quite a few sticks these days are true one pieces. The s17 is, the CCM U+, the Bauer one 95, and the RBK 10K is almost a true one piece. The Warrior Kronik is one as well.

Very few top end OPS these days are a traditional bonded shaft and blade. Not quite a true one piece, but better then a retail shaft and a retail blade bonded with epoxy instead of hot glue like they did in the past.

And I don't think they paid the NHL's fee, so they can't be used in the NHL unless they're repainted as a stick from an approved company.
