Floorball equipment has evolved over time as companies have refined the manufacturing process.
It is important to know what you are purchasing, in order to ensure the best quality for your athletes or recreation program.

If we look at sticks there are a number of variations to choose from introductory to professional. On the retail market recreational players have the opportunities to play with the same sticks as the top players in the world. Sticks also tend to change in color or layouts yearly in an attempt to meet market trends. This gives more options for the consumer to choose their preferences in both color and functionality. Currently there seems to be a few things happening with floorball brands. On one hand most companies are pushing neon colored sticks on the market this year in some fashion. This trend would fall in line with what’s happening in other sports like soccer where neon colors adorn jerseys, and shoes. If a neon pink shaft and blade is your preference of color you can find that. On the opposite side of the spectrum some companies are opting for a simplistic approach. In this manner colors are basic all white sticks and blades, or all black. One thing to take note is that blades and shafts are not necessarily compatible between brands, so beware that your Exel Blade may not fit a Salming shaft.

In many cases with equipment it’s a matter of preferences for the consumer and as a whole there are a number of options available in the market. The US is a primarily untapped market in the sport and as it catches on, and it will, more and more products will begin to flood the market. As a result it is likely it will also influence in many ways how equipment and apparel is made and marketed in relation to the US and Europe.
