True Catalyst 9X Senior Hockey Stick




The True Catalyst 9X Stick elevates True’s mid-kick game to a whole new dimension. Building on the success of the XC Series with the advances learned from the Project X sticks, this high-powered cannon weighs just 385 grams (85 flex) without having to sacrifice the feel, power or playability that has made XCore popular.

To massively reduce the weight by 40 grams compared to the previous XC9, True implemented new engineering philosophy called Precision Laminate Design (PLD). This advanced carbon layering process uses the extra-lightweight spread tow carbon fiber to drastically shed weight without compromising strength. The Axenic Technology then uses these materials in their industry-leading one-piece construction process to make one of the most refined, dialed in and fine-tuned shafts ever.

The blade has been completely redesigned from the inside out to shed weight and, most importantly, to keep the signature dampened blade feel XCore has always been known for. The new Braided Aramid Technology (BAT) uses Aramid fibers instead of carbon fibers for its stand-out dampened feel and lightweight properties. Similarly, the Performance Advanced Strengthening System (PASS) is a high-density foam core that helps to reinforce the blade for top-tier accuracy and longevity.
