What is the difference between street hockey sticks and ice hockey sticks?
Simply so, can you use ice hockey sticks for street hockey?
Ice hockey sticks can be used for street hockey but must first be taped or you can use a wrap around to protect the blade from the road. You can use the same gloves, helmet, knee-pads, and elbow-pads for inline and ice hockey. Ice hockey requires more padding than street hockey due to body checking.
Subsequently, question is, should you tape street hockey stick? Use Tape - If you don't mind the feel of tape on your ball hockey stick then use it! That said I don't like it, but it will really help protect the blade. Perhaps consider covering the toe (to protect from chips) or taping any surface cracks.
Accordingly, what kind of stick is used for street hockey?
