Title (EN) HOCKEY STICK HAVING AN OFFSET SHAFT AND BLADE TRANSITIONAL CONNECTION
(FR) BATON DE HOCKEY PRESENTANT UNE TIGE DEPORTEE ET UN RACCORDEMENT TRANSITIONNEL DE LA LAME
Abstract:
(EN) A hockey stick (10) is provided with an offset or bend (24) angular to the plane of the face of the blade (14) and positioned to begin substantially at the location where the transition from the heel (20) of the stick (10) to the shaft (12) becomes approximately equal to the cross section of the shaft (12) in its parallel plane. In a preferred form a second bend (26) then makes a rapid transition to the full offset configuration within the dimension of the shaft (12) such that the blade portion (14) trails the plane of the center line axis of the shaft (12) and due to centrifugal force the trailing blade (14) tends to rotate closed thereby cupping the puck by the blade (14) resulting in reduced deflection and easier pass reception.
(FR) L'invention concerne un bâton de hockey (10) présentant un déport ou une courbure (24) angulaire par rapport au plan de la face de la lame (14) et disposé de manière à commencer sensiblement à l'endroit où la transition à partir du talon (20) du bâton (10) vers le manche (12) devient approximativement égale à la coupe transversale du manche (12) dans son plan parallèle. Dans une forme préférée, une deuxième courbure (26) forme alors une transition rapide vers la configuration entièrement déportée dans les dimensions du manche (12) de telle sorte que la lame (14) traîne le plan de l'axe de ligne centrale du manche (12) et qu'en raison de la force centrifuge, la lame traînante (14) tende à tourner fermée, la frappe enroulée du palet par la lame (14) provoquant une déviation réduite et une meilleure réception de la passe.
