Memories brings on a question about golf

In an old post on this blog (one of the first) we took the awesome stick development that Floorball brought forward - and asked - why the heck not Floorball producers took one cool technology from its sport and applied it to hockey sticks too?

It took a year or so and Salming presented two utterly advanced hockey sticks - this was one of them....

This stick design is based upon the also twisted X3M Floorball stick (same company) and the idea is that the twist on both sticks (the Floorball and the hockey version) makes the stick stiffer and provides the shooter with a better kick and a harder shot..

Ok, we do not know if these sold good or not - but we do like the idea to transfer technologies..

Then if we now think about S shaped, Floorball sticks, curved sticks, bamboo designs, or different indents or other shaft technologies used... and also remember a few other facts..
- The first plastic sticks from Cosom...
- The first ball from Cosom...
- So many hockey players..
all these things are - very much inspired by golf...

So when will we see golf clubs with bow shafts? Bamboo? Or different indent technologies - why not a twisted shaft?
U tell me ;-P if they need some future too? Or why not field hockey sticks, or lacrosse, and badminton too?

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!
