Verbero Vara Pro Hockey Stick

Verbero Vara Pro Hockey Stick

Sometimes we get hung up on the name or brand. Sometimes we are unwilling to give a product a chance. Well I can tell you that I am glad that I gave the Verbero Vara Pro Stick a chance. I was pleasently surprised by what happened on the ice. It exceeded my expectations in almost every way. Sometimes change is good.

The Verbero Vara Pro Stick is Verbero’s top of the line offering and its a pretty good offering. The Vara Pro is constucted from aerospace grade carbon in combination with Durotech resin for durability and a smooth release and explosive shots. The stick comes in at 420 grams thanks to Verbero’s use of Durotech Weight Reduction Process and honestly, it feels about the same weight as most sticks. Finally Verbero uses Phantomlite Technology to prevent air pockets from forming in the shaft and that should help with durability.

So how did it feel on the ice? Given that I wasn’t awe-struck by the stick when I first got it, the Vara Pro surprised me as much as any piece of gear has ever. Once I stepped on the ice and took my first slapper I couldn’t believe it. The shot had incredible pop and accuracy. Pretty much wherever I wanted to put the puck, it went there and for me, that is a pretty big deal! Passing with the stick was pretty much the same. It had great feel and I couldn’t believe how easy it was to get my saucer off. I don’t have the greatest hands, so for me I loved being able to pass with such ease.

If you are looking for a new stick and are willing to try something new and pretty much in my opinion, you should really consider the Verbero Vara Pro. It is a big time stick without the big time price ($179.99) It comes in grip and non-grip and a variety of patterns. It’s not going to wow with its graphic design but does that really matter? All that really matters is how it performs on the ice and perform it does. In my estimation, you are getting a high end stick for a middle of the pack pricing.
