THE CAMAN (SHINTY STICK)


The four styles of caman: (from left to right) forward, midfield, defender, goalie




Close-up of a forward's stick...


... the relatively flat angle allows forwards to keep the ball lower, an advantage for goal scoring even with 10 foot high nets.






This is a midfield stick. The base is wider than the forward stick, resulting in the head being more angled. This provides more lift to shots.






Here is a view of the entire midfield stick, taped at the top only, just as it arrived from Munro Camans.
