Total Goalie has teamed up with a premiere Canadian goalie stick manufacturer to create an incredibly well balanced, lightweight and durable pro-level "Shooter" goal stick - the Christian 990. This stick was designed specifically for goalies who love to play the puck, or goalies who want a stiff blade for more predictable shots and rebounds.
Shaft: Aspen & Birch laminate construction for durability and a medium level of flex. A double ply laminate of E-Glass cloth has been added to the shot side of the shaft for even more durability.
Paddle: Urethane foam paddle is stiffened by the employment of hundreds of nylon fibers that are woven throughout the foam to increase it's stiffness and durability. The shot side of the paddle has 10 carbon strands laminated to the paddle, and the backside of the paddle has no carbon whatsoever. This design acts to "snap" the paddle back to straight once it has been flexed, which gives the goalie extra kick when passing or shooting. Like the shaft, the shot side of the paddle has been reinforced with a double layer of E-Glass cloth to provide additional strength. Due to these reinforcements, we have been able to create slightly thinner, more lightweight paddle.
Blade: Urethane foam core blade has a full Carbon laminate on the both sides of the blade to create a very stiff and durable blade. Nylon fibers have been woven throughout the blade foam, and a double layer of E-Glass cloth has been added on the shot side for even more strength. Additionally, an insert made of bus bumper material has been woven into the urethane foam on the bottom of the blade. This material has been shown to resist splitting and crumbling by over 2x over traditional foam blades, making the 990 blade one of the most durable on the market today.
Christian 990 Paddle Measurement
||TG True Size
The TG TRUE SIZE paddle measurement method was created to make ordering goalie sticks online easier, and more accurate. As each manufacturer measures their sticks in their own unique way, we created this method to help you compare your stick at home with the models that we have in our inventory. By knowing how your current stick size compares to the stick that you're looking to purchase, you can make the best purchasing decision possible.
To measure your current stick, place the end of the tape measurer at the point where the top of the paddle meets the shaft of the stick on the non-blade side. Then, measure down the paddle in a straight line until the tape measurer crosses the bottom of the blade to determine the TG True paddle size. Keep in mind that this measurement may vary depending on the blade pattern, but it will help you choose the most comparable size.
