Ideal for: Experienced players (2-5 years) Perfect for: Tight passes New name from: adidas FLXThe adidas Fabela .6 is an all-round/stiff/flexible field stick from the Fabela stick collection from adidas. Adidas hockey sticks have now become an indispensable part of Dutch hockey fields. The sticks have a modern design and are used by many top players. Material & Carbon percentage The Fabela .6 is a flexible hockey stick that provides a good mix of power and optimal control. The stick consists of 30% carbon, which provides impact and power. This offers the opportunity to easily generate extra ball speed. The added aramid in the stick increases the shock-absorbing capacity, giving the player more feeling and control over the stick. The remaining fiberglass also offers extra protection for higher durability and wear resistance. Curvature & Curl The curvature of 22mm at a height of 250mm ensures that you can easily hit, flatten and stop a ball. The Mid Bow curve is ideally suited for the all-round hockey player. The Fabela has a Pure Control Head, which is comparable to the Maxi curl. The Maxi curl is the most common curl on the hockey field. The large surface area makes stopping and hitting the ball easy, but the quick handling of the ball is slightly impaired. Fabela The Fabela has been the new name for the FLX stick line from adidas since 2021. The FLX was the 'feminine' version of the LX line, because of the softer color schemes. These characteristics have also been extended to the Fabela. The Fabela is suitable for the all-rounder with its flowing curves. Click here for more information about the new names of adidas product lines.

Stick Basics

Sorry, lefties — there is no such thing as a left­handed field hockey stick. The bottom of the stick, called the toe, has a rounded edge facing the right and a flat surface facing the left. The flat surface is used to hit the ball. The stick is controlled by the right hand, which should be placed at the base of the grip. The left hand is positioned at the top of the stick and is used to turn the stick.

Stick Weight & Positioning

Most players prefer to use the medium­weight sticks. Forwards, however, generally use the lighter sticks for increased maneuverability and control. Defenders often favor heavier sticks that produce harder hits. Midfielders prefer the medium­weight sticks so they have both maneuverability and hard hits.

Beginners who haven’t decided on a position will be best served by choosing a mediumweight stick. This weight works well for any position. Here is the weight breakdown for sticks (in ounces):

  • Light stick weight: 18 oz to 19 oz
  • Medium stick weight: 19 oz to 22 oz
  • Heavy stick weight: 22 oz to 25.9 oz

Materials & Stiffness

Wood field hockey sticks are made primarily of mulberry or hickory. Composite and fiberglass sticks are also legal and are predominantly used at the high school, collegiate, and Olympic and World Championship levels. The materials used in composite sticks help generate more power for hits and are used to increase durability and enhance flexibility.

Beginners regularly go for more flexible sticks (wood sticks) to help absorb shock.

Advanced players usually prefer stiffer sticks (composite sticks) for increased power.

Those who plan on continuing with the sport should buy composites; they are lighter, produce more power on every hit, and last longer.

Stick Length

Height often dictates the length of a player’s stick. Just the same, players will look for the longest stick that they can comfortable handle; the longer the stick, the longer the reach and the greater the advantage. The size range begins at 26inch youth sticks and goes up to 38­inch sticks for tall, experienced players.

Toe Style

The toe is the bottom part of the stick that touches the ground and strikes the ball. The shape will vary depending on
player positions and style of play. Players who haven’t figured out their field position should buy midi­toe style sticks. This style stick has the benefits of both the shorti and hook: It’s good for dribbling and for stopping. Listed below are the four main toe styles:


  • Popular with defensive players due to the large stopping surface; this helps receive the ball
  • J­shaped construction
  • Particularly good on grass surfaces


  • Large receiving area and greater hitting power
  • Defensive players prefer this stick style


  • Large hook surface and length
  • Greater hitting and stopping area to aid receiving, flicking, and reverse stick play
  • Best for beginners and midfield players


  • Designed to allow quick movement around the ball
  • Good for dribbling
  • Generally used by offensive players
