I have had this current Redback for 3 months so have played roughly 10 games with it and have given it a good test.
Classic and classy. The current models have slightly larger writing and the white ATLAS really stands out on the matt black and is noticeable from a distance.
Certainly not the fanciest nor super modern pretty stick out there BUT
What this stick and ATLAS in general are all about!
This Redback has a smooth feel and sublime touch on the ball
What a hockey stick should feel like.
The closest brand I could relate it to would be PRINCESS. I have had a couple of 7* T14s and they are reasonably similar.
Power is massive. OK so is it Gryphon TOUR . . . .? . . . . . .? . . . . . . . . . .?
Well not quite but as powerful if not more than anything else. Honest
So a great balance of lovely feel and stonking power
Have a look at The Indian Internationals that use ATLAS . Please . Some off them have removed the stock grip completely and have only thin elastic tape as a grip. Obviously these are top players but kinda shows what silky touch and feedback you get from these sticks yet still thunder shots.
I have also had an ATLAS BlackJet and again it is a cracker off a stick. The most popular off the range. It is very similar though I would say the Redback has an ever so slightly higher balance point and is a tad more tricky to play with. MORE ping MORE zing
These sticks are good examples of where the lay up of the carbon and placement of the fibres can make huge differences. What I mean is they are actually the same weight and composition but are tinkered with to play slightly different.
This is a J - curve 24mm bow . Pretty classic mould and an all rounder.
Ok so I thought I would continue to show respect to Rajulicious852 and compare sticks to Footballers.
The Redback would be Steven Gerard.
Solid looking, midfield general who is comfortable playing all over the park. No bright pink boots, naff tattoos or metrosexual haircuts! Can tackle hard, amazing range of passing and can hit some ferocious shots.
So basically if you are trailing 3 nil in a huge final at half time this is the stick you need to come out and single handedly win the game. Enough said
Please feel free to ask any questions regarding this stick or other ATLAS sticks .
- Bow Type:
- High bow (300mm)
- Undisclosed . Estimate - 90-95% carbon
