The bandy stick is used to hit the ball. The stick should be made of wood and must not contain sharp parts or metals (any) that can cause surrounding players any injuries. The sticks are crooked and have five angles in variety, wherein one is the smallest and 5 is the largest. Bend 4 is commonly used in professional bandy.
The bandy sticks are made from the lower-end branches of the Pollard Willow trees. These trees are abounding in the Fens. The reason for picking the lower branch is that they are naturally in the shape of bandy. The lower branch grows in a curve upwards which surround the top head of the tree. A good Bandy player looks after the stick for life and owns it with pride.
The bandy sticks should have a maximum length of 127.0 cm (measured from the outer side of the stick’s bend). The maximum thickness of the blade should be 1.2 cm. The width of the stick’s blade should be 5.3 cm (minimum) and 7.0 cm (maximum). The blade’s outer radius should be 575 mm (57.5 cm). The stick’s blade shouldn’t be straight from anywhere. The tip of the blade should be 1.0 cm x 5.3 cm.
