True Catalyst 5X Senior Hockey Stick
The True Catalyst 5X Stick with its powerful mid-kick point delivers high-end tech, spec and feel without the big price tag. True was able to shed 70 grams of weight compared to the previous 2019 XC5 stick, making it just 430 grams (85 flex) without sacrificing durability in the least.
The blade of the 5X stick showcases two new key technologies: Braided Aramid Technology (BAT) and Performance Advanced Strengthening System (PASS). Unlike the previous carbon fiber tube reinforcement, the new Aramid tubes allow True to keep the signature soft, damp blade feel while reducing weight. Then the new PASS blade core foam is stiffer, stronger and more stable than before which all results in significant weight reduction with the same XCore feel.
Finally, the shaft and its features help to elevate the X5 to upper echelon performance and feel. The new Precision Laminate Design (PLD) drastically sheds weight through advanced layering techniques without giving up durability or strength. Similarly, the industry-leading Axenic One-Piece Construction provides an extra precise and consistent final product that is primed for maximum performance.
