Common/customary materials for ice hockey sticks seem to include:
- Carbon Fiber
While a lot of sites seem to kind of place sticks in two general categories, wood and composite, a lot of them kind of tend to stop there and just say that composite is better than wood.
My question is, between these sorts of materials, how free-form can you customarily be in making a standard hockey stick, in terms of both the number and the types of materials chosen?
For example, can you pick any one of these materials and use it as the sole material for a standard stick? (Maybe the kevlar is a bad choice for that, but I'm not sure.) Are there any materials on this list that don't play nice with each other? Is it easy to pick any number (1-5) of the materials?
This is asking specifically about standard-ish, customary sticks, not anything too far off the beaten path.
