Get ready to be blown away by the 2024 edition of our highly acclaimed XLB14, following the footsteps of its immensely popular predecessor from 2023.

While the changes may not be drastic, the subtle adjustments we've made across the board add up to a remarkable enhancement in both feel and performance for the 2024 model.

We've refined the tomma zone for a sleeker appearance and reinforced it with kevlar for added strength and power. The head has been reshaped, with a slight increase in bulk and weight towards the lower end, perfect for delivering powerful hits.

Enhancements don't stop there – the bottom edge is now designed to facilitate smoother turf sliding during slap shots, while the enlarged angled toe has been reshaped underneath to match the ball's diameter, ensuring tighter control during spins and injections.

But the real game-changer lies in the construction. After rigorously testing over 100 different layup combinations in the past year, we've perfected the construction method to offer unparalleled feel and playability. The result? The revolutionary 2024 CROC XLB14, setting a new standard in hockey stick design that you have to experience to believe.

The XLB14 features a 14 degree head, 23.5mm High Bow at a Low 225mm

Reverse Toe Angle (RTA) - The innovative (RTA) takes the concept developed by Brent over 20 years ago in the top selling Mason 360 and subsequently adopted by most of the major brands including JDH to the next level. 

Brent has progressed that idea another leap forward with CROC in totally eliminating the rounded head in favour of a Reverse Toe Angle (RTA) design giving exceptional control in fast turning manoeuvres and injections. Providing an increased angle allows the ball to sit securely between the shaft and tow allowing maximum power in the pull phase of your injection or field passes. The increased toe area this provides is essential for those advanced players taking on backhand receives or for those wanting to introduce backhand receives into their game.

Extreme Tomma Edge - We have increased the width of the tomma edge and added extra carbon to provide the ultimate combination of power and forgiveness.

Tapered Head - New materials means we are able to do away with the traditional ‘bulbous head’ and introduce our Tapered Head to allow players of all levels to easily get under the ball when executing overheads and 3D play.

Extra Thick Handle - Straight out of the mould we have increased the diameter of the handle so you won't be upsetting the weight by wrapping excess layers of grip. The thicket handle maintains a consistent diameter extending further down the shaft before widening out to the hitting surface. This not only provides greater handle length to get your bottom hand down closer to the ball but allows for easier rotation in the bottom hand when dribbling for ultimate control.

Maximum Width Shaft provides greater surface area in the hitting and trapping zone. Hockey sticks are allowed to be 51mm wide so why arn't all sticks as wide as possible? It's amazing how may sticks on the market are under their allowable size. it stands to reason the wider the stick the more traps and hits you will make cleanly, so we maximised the face with to maximise the performance.

Peaked Spine - drawing from 150 years of inspiration in cricket bats we have introduced the Peaked Spine to the Hockey Stick. The triangle is the ultimate shape for strength and when used as a truss design as we have done it provides the ultimate stiffness right in the centre of the shaft where you need it.  

Textured Face Control Zone - A slight texture on the hook face provides extra control and grip on the ball right where you need it.

CKC - Carbon Kevlar Construction, 98% carbon 2% Kevlar construction for an extra stiff hard hitting professional standard stick.
