The PowerMetal Technology

The PowerMetal material strength is derived from its metal atom arrangement. For instance, in normal metals, the atoms form crystals or grains that are about 20 microns in size; in PowerMetal, those grains are 1,000 times smaller (i.e., 20 nanometres in size) – translating into a dramatic increase in strength.

Performance:

Ultimately, the application of PowerMetal with a composite substrate engineered to reduce weight and optimize weight distribution will make the COLT the world’s first hockey stick that performs at a high level while withstanding the high impact nature of the sport.

With the PowerMetal application, the COLT will be substantially more durable than a high-level composite, specifically allowing it to endure slashes, hits, and high impact shots without compromising performance. This, of course, means that the COLT is less susceptible to the natural wear and tear that diminishes a stick’s performance over time; thus preserving the high quality observed from a new stick, longer.

YES, I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS GEAR

Solid product, and good all-round hockey stick!

We were lucky enough to be part of the Kickstarter project that has since aided in bringing the Colt Hockey Stick into the market. And after almost half a season of use with our Colt here's what we think.

First impressions, right out of the box, is that its a solid product. Good quality from handle to toe. The Colt, as marketed, holds the regular hockey stick feel and weight. However, the stiffness of a graphite 100 compared to a Colt 100 seemed to be a little more stiff.

In regards to feel, the colt handles just like a top end graphite stick. Once you get used to the seemingly harder crack when receiving passes and taking slap shots, a good quality stick is there for you. Another thing I had to get over was my bottom hand placement. It shouldn't change, but the way in which the colts nano metal comes up past my regular grip placement, altered my position a little. Not because I didn't want to hold the metal part (it's designed to be there to avoid breaking), but the line at which it ended was close to where my hand usually is. So once I got over the optical illusion of putting my hand on the join sometimes, I was good to go.

All in all, a great product and I haven’t snapped it yet, so promise up held by Colt thus far. One thing that did raise a question was the piece of hard blue foam fill, that rattled loose after 2 games. After I removed the cap and took it out of the stick everything was all good. Colt what is that?

If you're in the market for a high end stick and want it to last a couple seasons, get ya a Colt. But you may want to drop a flex level to maintain your usual feel. And if you're planning on buying one, keep your eye out for the next time Colt does their Custom Colt option.
