Brabo hockey sticks review for Juniors in 2017

Brabo hockey sticks are becoming increasingly seen on hockey fields all over. They are really well made hockey sticks with cool designs. The Junior hockey stick range in 2017 from Brabo is big and offers a great choice for kids.

The 2017 Brabo Junior hockey stick review is clearly split out in to 3 distinct ranges of junior hockey stick.

There are two shapes of shaft available in the junior hockey stick range from Brabo in 2017, and to be honest there is only one Brabo kids hockey stick with the lowbow shaft shape, the ‘Brabo Traditional Carbon 80’ which is in the top end range.

Brabo Performance Series Junior hockey stick reviews

Top of the shop from Brabo for the Junior hockey sticks of 2017 is the Performance series kids hockey sticks.

These are awesome specification, all above 50% carbon fibre material composition to help challenge the kids to improve their skills.

What I really love about the top end performance series Brabo kids hockey sticks is the fact that every junior performance Brabo hockey stick is available in as small as 32 inch size. This will suit young children from 8 or 9 years old. Many other brands start their top end sticks much older.

Here’s a run-down of the key specs for the Brabo performance series kids hockey sticks.

  • Brabo TeXtreme X-2 Junior review – Midbow ‘Classic’ 24mm curve at mid-point of the stick shaft, 75% TeXrtreme* carbon fibre with 20% fibreglass
  • Brabo Traditional Dyneema 100 Limited Junior review – Midbow ‘Classic’ 24mm curve at mid-point of the stick shaft, 75% Dyneema** carbon fibre with 20% fibreglass
  • Brabo Traditional Carbon 100 Junior review – Midbow ‘Classic’ 24mm curve at mid-point of the stick shaft, 75% carbon fibre with 20% fibreglass
  • Brabo Traditional Carbon 80 Junior review – Lowbow 24mm curve at the lowest point possible on the shaft, 60% carbon fibre with 35% fibreglass
  • Brabo Heritage 60 Junior review – Midbow ‘Classic’ 24mm curve at mid-point of the stick shaft, 50% carbon fibre with 45% fibreglass

* TeXtreme is a brand name of a certain type of carbon fibre, it is regarded as one of the best material compositions to reduce vibrations, always nice on a cold Sunday morning!

** Dyneema is another brand name of carbon fibre, it’s particularly well known for making super strong carbon which gives this junior hockey stick extra power.

Brabo G-Force Series Junior Hockey stick reviews

Next up in the 2017 Brabo Junior hockey sticks reviews for kids are the eight hockey sticks which for the G-Force Series.

These sticks will suit kids from the age of 6 through to 16 years with the lengths of sticks available from just 28 inches high. They also step up in size by 1 inch at a time, I know from experience children can end up with a stick slightly to big or small because of a 2 inch range in size.

The best thing to review about this set of Brabo hockey sticks is that they all have decent carbon content in the material composition.

With a minimum 30% carbon content, I think Brabo are the best brand for junior hockey sticks in this price range. Introducing young children to how a hockey stick feels with carbon is a great thing to help them get started in their hockey career.

Other than material composition, there’s not that much to review between the Junior Brabo 2017 hockey sticks, just the designs separates most. Here’s the run down of the G-Force children’s hockey sticks from Brabo:

Brabo wooden hockey sticks for kids

Brabo also have a range of wooden hockey sticks for kids. These are a great way to get kids in to the game or to have an indoor stick in the bag.

We don’t cover them in detail in this review, however the specification is perfect for the application and if you find a design that works, the Brabo wooden kids hockey sticks will be a great stick for starting or playing indoor hockey.

Summary review of the Brabo junior hockey stick range 2017

I was really surprised with the depth of the Brabo hockey stick range for children. These are really good quality sticks with some seriously good looking designs.

The best feature is the high carbon content, particularly in the top of the range sticks and also for the smaller entry level kids Brabo hockey sticks.

It would be nice to have more options for lowbow shaped Brabo Junior hockey sticks to help the children develop 3D skills, however the midbow is a good shape with a decent curve.

I’d buy one for my kids and perhaps next autumn I will.
