Mid

Bow

The Mid Bow is the more recent common starting bow shape, replacing the Standard Bow which has a higher bow point. Hitting and stopping is easily learnt with the mid bow however lifting the ball is favourable with this shape. 

The Mid Bow measures around a 22mm to 24.75mm high at the 300mm point (from the bottom of the stick).

Low

Bow

Probably the most common and versatile bow these days. The slightly lower bend position enables lifting and aerial skills. 

Measuring at 23- 25mm high at the 225 – 250mm point (from the bottom of the stick).

Extra

Bow

Low

The ultimate for lifting the ball but not friendly for hitting and stopping.

The height of the bow is at 23- 25mm while bow bend position is at 200 – 205mm point ( measured from the bottom of the stick).
