Hockey began as a simple ball and stick game, the modern form closest to the original is what we call field hockey. All variations come from this sport. All are amazingly familiar once you grab a stick and begin to play.
For 2016 Dita USA has created a TERRA RETRO range of sticks, with hints of faux wood-grain and throw back graphics which feature the classic Dita logo made famous when Dutch player Teun de Nooijer was a junior player. This RETRO look is exclusive to Dita USA and will be available at only authorized Dita USA retailers in May.
Look through the keyhole at details of the 2016 Dita Limited Edition RETRO models coming in June, exclusively at Dita USA Authorized retailers.
Two GIGA sticks, the BLUE PLAID and the RED PLAID are light years ahead of our previous GIGA models, not only with brilliant graphics, but with the best ball handling and forgiveness and durability.
Four stunning models make up the exclusive and technologically advanced TERRA RETRO line. The 2016 TERRA RETRO has faux wood-grain graphics on the highest tech composite sticks, a salute to the Olde Daze of wooden sticks. Yet, the TERRA RETRO sticks play as if from the FUTURE.
Well, they are from the future. The FUTURE arrives in June.
You have to admit, it is an odd name for a field hockey stick.
It is different, that is for sure. But a name is not everything.
What matters is how YOU feel with the stick in your hands and
a ball on the end of your new stick.
Some report that this may be the best ball control stick ever.
Watch the video and maybe decide that you have to try
this stick yourself.
Loren Shealy is smiling and with good reason. After graduating from the University of North Carolina, she is taking time off and has borrowed one of Kat Sharkey's Black Cat sticks, taking a shot at a ticket to Rio. GO LOREN!!!!
There are those who think designing a field hockey stic is about putting pretty colors on a blank hook-shape stick. Then, there is Chris Sutherland, someone who has been hands on with sticks since the 1960s. If you have ever played with a Dita, these new sticks will be hauntingly familiar in your hands.
