Welcome to the adidas DF24 Compo 1 review, for hockey players who want a stick to help them flick, you’ve just landed at one of the best all round value hockey sticks in the market.

For a few years now adidas have made the DF24 specifically as the ultimate drag-flick hockey stick and 2015 steps it up a level with the Compo 1 now featuring adidas DUAL rod technology to add power to a less carbon content hockey stick.

This year I was really happy to review the adidas DF24 Compo 1 hockey stick. The 70-80% carbon content hockey sticks suit me best as I like a little feel and the adidas Compo 1 with 70% carbon fibre, 25% fibreglass and 5% aramid for reinforcement is perfect.

Add to the carbon content DUAL rods to reinforce the stiffness of the shaft and all of a sudden you have feel and power from the new adidas DF24 Compo 1 hockey stick. For those who haven’t experienced DUAL rod technology in their sticks it is a great addition to many lines which see’s the internal chamber of the shaft split by 2 carbon rods.

Also improving feel and shock absorbsion, the 2015 adidas DF24 Compo 1 is filled with the high tech foam which also helps with the hockey stick’s weight. The DF24 is available in Superlight or Light and boy it feels light! Really manoeuvrable and you can really push it quickly through the ball for maximum power.

Obviously though the reason to choose an adidas DF24 review is to grab yourself a drag-flicking dream hockey stick. Now the DF24 Compo 1 has the 3XTREME adidas shaft with the specialist drag-flick groove which is an indent in the lower part of the shaft which helps scoop the ball in the later stages of a drag flick. I review that the DF24 Compo 1 is the best drag-flicker’s stick on the market.

With such a low bow at just 200mm up from the ground the adidas Compo 1 3XTREME shaft combined with the light weight feel of the hockey stick you get an absolutely perfect stick to drag-flick with.

Don’t forget the adidas DF24 Compo 1 now fitted with the DUAL rod system makes it powerful for passes and shots and therefore makes it very useful on other areas of the pitch too.

A really great hockey stick and if you are the first choice penalty corner shooter for your 2nd or even 1st eleven you must review the adidas DF24 Compo 1 as the perfect stick for your game.
