Anyone wondering why you would design a stick like this has obviously not met the man behind the brand, Tim Deavin...Enough said…
The Lycan 3 series sticks have a very unique design, a bit of a love it or hate it situation. The Ghost has kept the yellow colour and carbon weave base of it’s predecessor, the Boomrod but now features a new tattoo style design. Check out the better quality photos below to judge the designs for yourself. I love the end cap, feels like the cap you’d find on the end of a plastic bottle, very nice. Always a fan of new stuff.
My one requirement for the looks of a stick…Does it stand out? This is a no brainer…the main reason I love this stick.
The Specifics and Feel
A high carbon percentage and a not often seen three cores gives this stick heaps of strike power. A slightly thicker shaft delivers a super soft touch. With a weight of just over 560g 480mm from the head it can be picked up any player. The bow is perfect for every play style low enough for the flickers but high enough for the more upright players.
VERY different to the 2015 sticks. Solid but oh so soft. A powerful plank.
The bow of the Ghost is at the perfect point to allow you to hit the sweet spot every time with no adjustment of technique but also low enough to generate a decent amount of power for flicks and pushes. It caught me completely off guard at my first training, traps literally stuck to the stick every single time with very little give in the hands. Something you will not find in many other sticks.
I have talked to other players who also use the Ghost and they all say how perfect the soft touch is. For me personally I love it's consistency, every hit, tomahawk, slap, flick and push all come off exactly the same. Available from the Lycan Hockey website for an average price of $395 http://www.lycanhockey.com/ghost.html you get one hell of a stick. If you want to stand out with a small brand but also want the assurance of using a stick designed by two current Kookaburras look no further!
