Oxdog enters the US Floorball market

There has been several changes in the products available on the North American Floorball stick market over the last few years. We have seen Speedhoc to enter Canada as well as Realstick and Wooloc and more material being advertised from our Canadian friends. Other brands that we have seen before seems to have diminished in their activity as we think about Blast and a few other previous available brands.

Salming has doubtless been dominant (together with X3M) as the dominant brand both in USA, via Floorballplanet and Floorballpro in Canada. No wonder since they are so tight related to ice Hockey too. But also Unihoc and their sub brands are available with online outlets sourced from the east in Canada and from floorballgear in Calif. Last winter as Peter Forsberg engaged himself in the brand Exel, and he did talk about the potential North American market... we thought we would see some moves from that direction too - but this is apparently to happen yet.

We have been knowing for, some long time now, that Oxdog is present on the local market in NY but it is first today that they for the first time drum a little on the bom-bom instrument to tell the world about their presence. Oxdog has kind of walked in on their tippy toes before. We do not think they have a US online store yet - but it would not surprise us if they have such a thing up soon too.
Here is by the way a good Oxdog description from Spain what is going on with Oxdogs products
Then we have Blind Saves goalie gear available too...via NY.

Next post, will yet again touch base on all the big manufacturers and one of the repeatedly strange questions that we constantly get back to - we can not understand why they do not act in this matter - and we promise to continue to nag about this until be see a better approach... Hold out, you will know more soon.

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!
