Thanks to cutting-edge materials, a state-of-the-art construction process, and high-tech performance features, the new Hockey Players Club X1X hockey stick is one of the strongest and lightest hockey sticks ever made.
With their competitive playing days behind them (and no more free sticks), the founders of the Hockey Players Club committed themselves to create and offer the best hockey stick on the market, all at a fair price.
The result: a perfectly balanced and incredibly responsive hockey stick, designed to optimize feel, pop, and durability… all for $100 less than the “big” name brands.
Here are 8 reasons you’re going to love the new HPC X1X hockey stick:
1. The strongest, lightest stick you’ve ever held.
A senior X1X only weighs 375 grams. That’s 15 grams lighter than the new Bauer Vapor Flylite but $100 cheaper.
But the HPC didn’t cut weight by shedding layers of carbon fiber; instead, they sourced lighter, stronger carbon fiber. Originally designed for rocket ships and Formula 1 race cars, their DiamondLight Carbon Fiber is incredibly light and undeniably durable and responsive.
2. Your quickest release ever.
In today’s fast-paced game, with ever-improving goaltenders and countless players willing to block shots, players have limited time and space to distribute and shoot the puck. So the HPC designed the X1X to have the quickest release possible.
Their patented Fast Draw Taper technology combines a low kick flex point and expertly crafted tapered hosel optimizing energy transfer from the shaft to the blade for a lightning-quick release.
3. The puck has never felt so good on your stick.
The comfort and control of the double concave shaft walls and grip punch outs of the HPC X1X make the puck feel like it’s on a string.
Plus, the Dual Hybrid Core blade construction features a unique aerospace foam reinforced with two horizontal braids of DiamondLight carbon fiber producing a perfectly balanced stick with a noticeably light and soft feel. And, a 3D sandpaper finish for added grip and puck control.
Your bid for all hands team is still alive!
4. The most durable blade you’ve ever used.
The patented Durablade System minimizes cracking and chipping by fortifying the edges of the X1X blade with extra layers of DiamondLight Carbon Fiber, resulting in unparalleled durability and a blade that maintains its stiffness for an explosive release over the life of the stick.
No more mucking in the corners and coming out with the puck and a chipped toe!
5. The curve and flex that perfectly fit your game.
Unlike other brands that only offer a couple of curve and flex options, the senior HPC X1X readily comes in 5 patterns (plus, a 6th option can be custom ordered). For the older hockey players that grew up using the old Modano (P9), Drury (P91), Lindros (P88), Sakic (P92) or Lidstrom (P2) curves, plus the younger skaters using the McDavid in CCM or Eichel in Bauer (P28), the Hockey Players Club has you covered.
Plus, the Hockey Players Club carries the X1X in 7 flexes from 40-95.
No one should be forced to use a curve or flex that isn’t tailored to their game.
6. Sick exterior design with the player in mind.
A strong, clean, minimalistic look designed by the HPC founders and their old college teammate who is a talented professional design artist.
Not wanting to distract from the performance of the player, the X1X is purposefully blank on the top of the shaft from the middle down, and no gimmicky graphics to highlight marketing terms.
Plus, subtle details like the honeycomb in the top HPC make it look like a million bucks!
Not to mention, the option to customize the accent color of your X1X to match your team colors!
7. A warranty you’ll love, although it’s unlikely you’ll have to use it.
Although incredibly rare (<5%), any HPC X1X broken in the first 30 days upon delivery is replaced for free.
Simply contact the HPC team and provide two photos of the broken stick (1 of the unique warranty stickers on the underside of the shaft, 1 of the entire broken stick) and they’ll ship your replacement in no time.
It’s really that simple.
8. What are you going to do with all the money you save?
Unsatisfied with the price of today’s sticks and the old way of marketing and selling hockey sticks, the Hockey Players Club saves our hockey fam the added cost of pricey NHL player endorsement deals.
Endorsement deals and enormous ad campaigns don’t improve performance or durability but add considerably to the MSRP of every hockey stick sold. Who wants to pay extra just for marketing fluff?
And as sole investors in the Hockey Players Club, Matt and Brandon don’t have a pool of shareholders demanding ever-increasing returns. Instead, they’re passionate players and coaches who are proud to offer premium hockey products to the hockey community at a fair price.
Hockey, the sport so many of us love and share, is already expensive enough!
And most of all, they know once an HPC X1X is in your hands you’ll feel and know it’s the best hockey stick on the market, especially for the price!
