411: The RBK 9K O-Stick is built with O-Technology, which, according to RBK research, generates more power than any other one-piece stick on the market, helping you nail pinpoint shots. The stick’s design incorporates Power Ports [holes] down the shaft to increase stick speed and lower the kickpoint, while simultaneously stabilizing the shaft and improving your ability to hit the puck with more velocity. The stick’s two mirroring arches reduce the shaft’s rotation on impact.
