Not as Much Hype.. as one-piece sticks


But his is for sure very very interesting.

http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/nhl-hardest-shot/id493533607?mt=8

It is an app for apple products, like the I-phone labeled for the NHL to use the cell phone to measure puck speed as you shoot.
We do seriously believe that this is not an NHL product. It is just Speed Hero in a new dress or outfit - maybe slightly modified.
Speed Hero is developed to measure speed as you shoot with a Soccer ball, a Hockey puck and was of course developed for Floorball too - and the radar is an app on your phone. As Tikka from Finland sets the new in-official speed shoting record for Floorball at 205 km/h - well Speedhero was what they used - http://youtu.be/jHkDe8z1cK4

Yet again we think that it is in connected gears. like sticks and shoes where the future lies - and this is how we will get tonnes of computer nerds or game players to become more active with - why not Floorball.

Caution

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!
