The limited release Project X hockey stick from TRUE is now available at Pure Hockey, and we have all the information and insight you need to buy this unique stick with confidence. For 2021, TRUE pulled out all the stops and created the lightest stick on the market—the senior model weighs in at just 355 grams! Along with the fantastically light weight, this limited-edition stick boasts some new technologies, plus favorite features that playmakers and shooters alike have come to love from TRUE.
The most important feature in the TRUE Project X is the Precision Laminate Design, or PLD. This unique layering technology helps to create the lightest hockey stick we have ever held. PLD features up to 25 layers of unidirectional carbon fiber in a single shaft, and the fiber angles are exactingly fine-tuned. Optimizing the arrangement of this ultra-lightweight carbon fiber, the engineers at TRUE were able to both reduce the weight and increase the strength and impact resistance of the Project X.
Though the PLD is unique to the Project X, some of the stick’s other technologies will be familiar to TRUE hockey stick users. These features include the BRT+ blade and the company’s patented Axenic technology, which combine to make a true one-piece stick that offers great balance and durability. Axenic technology is an innovative compression molding process that co-molds the blade with the shaft, without any post-bonding, giving you the best possible puck feel while stick handling, shooting, or receiving a pass.
The BRT+ blade and Axenic molding process are also found on the 2020 AX9 hockey stick because the new Project X falls under TRUE’s A Series family, which features a low kick point for quick release. The optimized low kick on the Project X delivers effortless loading on your shots and a quick release to get your snap shots and wrist shots off fast.
TRUE created this limited-edition, lightweight stick with the pro in mind. High-end players like Mitch Marner have been using the Project X stick and making the most of the new features. If you are an elite-level player looking for the lightest hockey stick on the market, look no further than the TRUE Project X.
