XT 901 Gear Review: Dutch National Team Striker Reacts
Unpredictable. Explosive. Creative.
That’s how Netherland hockey star and Rotterdam striker Jeroen Hertzberger describes his playing style. And he’s not wrong.
On the field, Hertzberger is virtually unstoppable. A member of the Dutch national team, he’s the all-time top scorer in the Euro Hockey League competition with 26 goals. What’s the secret to his success? Years of practice and skill refinement, and a stick that complements his quick, precise movements.
Hertzberger reveals what he looks for in a strong stick set-up and reacts to the latest in hockey gear— the XT 901:
The XT 901 features an extreme low bow placement that allows Hertzberger to come under the ball at a deeper angle to create lift and precision on 3D aerials and his signature drag flick. The position of the bow makes it easier to tap balls and shoot harder and the flex material provides a soft touch without compromising power.
