DF- Most popular with drag flickers with its concave face, players who like to sweep, 3D skills, overheads. Needs adjustment to hitting to hit flat with. Popular with forwards and defenders who prefer to sweep and throw overheads than hit. Forwards love to hit on goal with this stick because lifting the ball comes very easily.
AX- Very low bow like the DF but without the concave face and with the Control Head. Popular with forwards and defenders for the same reason the DF is.
TX/FTX- Still a low bow but not as extreme as the AX and DF. More forgiving when you want to hit flat but still a low bow so great for 3D skills and lots of whip on wrist passes. Most popular with forwards and midfielders. Comes with the 3D headshape like the DF
LX/FLX- The most popular bow profile in the adidas range. This bow is considered the all rounder. The bow isn’t so low that it interferes with your flat hitting but there’s still some bow then when you need it. This stick is most popular with midfields but it’s use is spread all over the field.
V- The most gradual bow. There’s still a bow but it’s just spread out evenly across the shaft of the stick. This will give the most consistent flat hitting than the other sticks in the range. There’s still a 24mm bow which creates whip when sweeping. Out of the range this is the hitter’s stick.
