Fischer sticks have been industry leaders in Europe for decades, and will finally be readily available stateside! The Fischer GX5 Goalie Stick is the most advanced of Fischers offerings. The PU Foam core in the blade cuts weight, dampens vibrations, and makes for a much more playable stick for active goaltenders. Meanwhile the Glass Laminate also featured on blade extends its life and protects it from the beating it can take from blades and pucks. Finally, with a wood shaft that is further reinforced by Carbon Laminate, the GX5 is durable to hold up when you need to shut the door.
