The reason for furious technological development

This text is pure speculation.
But I think that the reason why we for ages have seen a furious technological innovation among Floorball sticks is founded on one single feature. The reason is that since most Floorball sticks are so very well manufactured - the sticks last too long if you as a producer want to sell sticks to replace broken sticks. The amount of broken sticks are too low - so players do not buy new sticks to replace a broken one. Floorball sticks are too good and just last too long.

The manufacturer then was forced to come up with a new reason to sell new sticks to players. The main and only reason to drive the replacement of sticks is then a natural development of the stick itself in terms of technique and design. So I think the quality of most sticks is the reason we see a continuous development with new technological developments and designs. New sticks on the market is not there to replace old broken ones - cause they hardly exists.
Whatever you think - I also would like to have the worlds lightest stick that weighs in at 204 grams.

Research suggest that eye-injuries are more common in Floorball as compared to Tennis, but less common as compared to Squash (similar to Racquetball).
To minimize this risk of injury Floorballcentral recommend: Use certified protective eye-wear (mandated in many European areas for the youth). Do not lay down on the court. Follow the rules strict on stick height.

Also if you get addicted to this sport - do not blame us!
