"Layup" is the combination of a sticks materials to create the perfect balance between Power and Feel. The goal is to create a stick that is extremely stiff, sometimes referred to as "Stiffness" to ensure power when striking the ball, yet soft enough in your hands to make traps smoothly and beat the opposition in one on one contests. Jamie's custom Layup has achieved this balance has the best combination of materials on the market to create the perfect hockey stick.
Over the years, hockey sticks have become lighter and lighter. With today's advanced materials we are able to create extremely light sticks whilst maintaining stiffness and power which traditionally was not possible.
JDH sticks are some of the lightest on the market, whilst each stick is unique, our average stick weight is 510grams and is the perfect weight for fast stick speed and devastating power.
Balance Point is the position on the stick where the weight is distributed evenly on either side. A higher balance point (further away from the head) means a lighter feel in the hands as the majority of the weight is in the handle. The result is a lighter feeling stick which helps with skills and swing speed, creating more powerful striking power.
Jamie has designed sticks with a balance point at the 39.5cm mark, while some small natural variations may occur. Jamie finds this point to be perfect for the modern game.
