The Sickick IV series of sticks from Reebok is all about control, accuracy and a quick release. The quick release comes from the low-mid kick point, while control and accuracy come from their Dual Matrix II™ and AccuBlade™ technologies which are also found throughout the line. The 20K is lightweight, has great balance and a nice clean look.
Reebok uses its Pure Fiber™, or true one-piece construction of high modulus carbon fiber for this stick. This type of construction eliminates overlapping material in the lower shaft, thus reducing weight and improving consistency in energy transfer. The senior shaft uses a Traditional geometry with square-corners.
The 20K is available with Reebok's Dual Grip Technology where the bottom half of the shaft has a matte finish and allows your hand to move up and down freely and quickly, while the top half of the shaft has a Griptonite finish that helps lock the stick in place when you clamp down. If you prefer the full Griptonite finish on the shaft, the senior model of the 20K is also available in full grip.
The gradual taper of the stick is what gives it the low-mid kick point.
Dual Matrix II™ is technology that is used in the shaft and the blade of the stick, but is clearly visible in the blade. The orientation of the fibers on the forehand are at 0° and 90°, while the fibers on the backhand are at 45°. This variation causes tension during loading that creates a slingshot effect on release. The other technology that Reebok uses is called AccuBlade™. This is a foam core blade that gets stiffer as you go from heel to toe resulting in less torqueing to keep the blade face closed.
With technologies that enhance control, accuracy and release time, the Reebok 20K is all that, and more...
