The Reebok Ai9 hockey sticks are the premier sticks in the Reebok Ai stick line. The Ai hockey sticks focus on providing maximum power. Reebok has introduced a few new features to the Ai 9 hockey stick such as, the 2:1 power taper, Xlerated Blade, and mid-kick point to make the A.I 9 stick the most powerful stick from Reebok.
The greatest difference between the Ai 9 stick and the Reebok 11K is the flex point. The Reebok AI9 stick features a mid-kick point that is not quite as fast of a shot release but it results in a more powerful shot because it allows the stick to store more energy. Reebok recently examined several NHL players stick to see what flex profile was being used and found that 60% of the players were using mid-kick sticks and only 40% were using low kick sticks.
To further increase power Reebok has introduced the 2:1 power taper, and Xlerated blade. The 2:1 ratio is that the top and bottom walls are twice as stiff as the sides. According to Reebok this design allows for effortless loading and maximum power transfer/stability. Reebok has also added a new blade core to the Ai 9 stick which they are calling the Xlerated Blade. The Xlerated Blade is a new highly reactive foam bare combined with an added layer of extra stiff carbon on the blade surface provide more direct power.
The Reebok Ai nine stick features a dark profile from the players perspective to make it a little easier for the player to identify with the puck.
