    When shopping for a hockey stick, you must first decide whether you want left- or right-handed stick. This choice depends on which hand you use on top on the stick. (Interestingly, in the NHL, 70 percent play left-handed.) Hockey sticks are made of wood or composite. Wood is regarded for its feel, but it’s used less often these days. Composite is light and affordable but less durable. Sticks come in senior, intermediate, junior, and youth categories. Each category has several classes of stick flex, which is the measurement of how stiff the stick is. These range from 20 to 120, with the higher numbers being the most flexible. Hockey sticks also come in a variety of curves – heel curves, mid curves, and toe curves.
