The Shosa Kromaskin .1 is the result of an obsession to create the ultimate drag flick stick. The ultra-low bow and drag flick groove create unparalleled ball speeds.

The structure of the .1 stick is created for maximum stiffness, resulting in ultimate power generation.

HEAD SHAPE: Pure Control
• HYPETEX KROMASKIN / FULL STICK KROMASKIN COVERAGE: Ultra thin carbon fibre material wrapping the stick shaft, taken from F1 Racing Technology, that improves both the look and the structural performance of the stick.
• SPREAD TOW CARBON: Higher strength to weight ratio than a standard carbon lay-up, increasing the power generation and durability of the stick.
• DRAG FLICK GROOVE: Helps to keep the ball connected to the stick for as long as possible during the drag flick action, enabling maximum power generation.
• 3D GEOMETRY: The unique adidas stick shape that stiffens the shaft, giving increased hitting power and a cleaner, sharper finish. The cut away under side of the stick helps to lift the ball more easily.
• COMPRESSION CORE: Located in the head of the stick, a hybrid core that expands during manufacturing to compress the composite layers, creating a stronger stick with a more consistent structure. It enhances the sweet spot and improves responsiveness when passing and receiving the ball.
• ACT EDGE: An advance composite tech material made from high impact nylon that prevents damage and reduces vibration, strategically placed on the reverse edge.
• LEADING EDGE SWEETSPOT: The surface area of the reverse edge has been increased to make reverse hitting more powerful and accurate.
