Available in Exclusive shapes -

Jumbow-S | Probow-S | Dynabow-S


The bow is positioned towards the playing head, working in conjuction with the player’s hand position, allowing a much later strike through the swing-arc than previously possible. This means serious head speed through the ball. We’ve incorporated a unique ribbed design which increases grip and feel throughout the handle area, & reduces the harsh vibrations that an increase in power can cause. A flat inner edge on the handle of the Jumbow-S allows instinctive understanding of the playing head position & 100% focus on the ball.

Players around the world try to master the backhand strike. The AC range is helping players do this by delivering the cleanest, most powerful strike around. The new Jumbow-S design goes even further, extending the LBZ and coating it with our tough Durazone surface treatment; giving players an even greater sweet-spot and making strikes faster, harder & more accurate.

PCS Ratings

Power - Energy transfer from the stick to the ball, measured by outbound ball velocity and influenced by stick stiffness. The higher the outbound ball velocity, the higher the power rating.

Top sticks for Power > AC10 | AC9 Jumbow-S | GR10000

Control - Energy absorption of the stick when receiving the ball determines the rebound properties, measured by the COF (Coefficient of Friction). The lower the COF, the higher the control rating.

Top sticks for Control > AC7 | GR8000

Speed - Fast-paced 3-D skills require optimum hand speed, governed by a combination of dead weight and balance point; the higher the balance point and the lighter the deadweight, the higher the speed rating.
