Skinny or fatboy?
I am buying a new goalie stick, I wondered what you thought was better out of the fatboy and skinny?
Fatboy or Skinny is really a matter of preference. The primary difference is in the weighting/balance of the sticks. The Fatboy has a heavier head as the shaft is hollow. Keepers who are active using their stick to clear the ball like the weighting/balance because you can generate more power swinging the stick. The Skinny stick is solid and the weight is more evenly distributed through the length of the stick. The Skinny stick is more suited to keepers who push the ball if clearing with their stick if clearing. As the stick is solid as opposed to hollow, the Skinny tends to be a little more durable than the Fatboy, something to keep in mind if you’re hard on your stick and money is an issue.
