The Pre-preg is created by adding resin to the composite fibre , also called pre-impregnated, it is a
key part of the manufacturing process.
The Pre-preg of the different fibres are then
cut to shape to meet the lay-up design. The process is crucial to achieve maximum strength and
The precise and uniform resin to fibres ratio creates the chemical and
physical bond in the moulding process.
The fibre composition and lay-up are major components in defining how a stick performs. All the
pieces of pre-preg are carefully shaped and arranged under specific map which is defined by each
model design and mould shape.
GRYPHON's lay-up is the performance 'X' factor.
We do this differently, for us it's an art, it's a sixth sense based on years of
experience and the knowledge of how to best achieve the desired result of power, and get a great
crisp feel to allow that instant response from the players hands for exceptional ball control.
Each range of sticks (TOUR, TABOO, etc) is crafted by the order and placement of each
Prepreg piece to create a unique soul. The lay-up gives each stick range its unique character.
3. Moulding Process
The moulding process is where the stick lay-up and is placed into its corresponding physical mould
for the moulding process.
The stick is created through the moulding process of high
pressure and heat to create the desired playing characteristics. The pressure and its consistency
during the moulding process is crucial in determining the sticks stiffness, strength and feel.
The shape describes the stick's profiles which is defined by :
- The handle and shaft width and depth
- The curve position and the curve peak
- The head shape profile defined by its thickness, blade, profile and the length of the toe
The stick's shape covers desirable characteristics required by players to achieve specific
skills with the ball. The sticks shape also influences the sticks stiffness and feel.
