True Pro stock codes

Recommended Posts

Do they mean anything? I didnt think that True did repaints? I picked up an 6.0 sbp and it was several digits under the name bar. Is this just the player ID? Also what year is this stick from ?

 

Thanks guys

Correct, the numbers under the name is the player code and batch. The easiest way to figure out the year is by the graphics. True does not do paint jobs. Their pro's are using the actual model of that stick but can still change things on it.

Unless they are a True pro such as Marner. When you see a bunch of pro-stock XC9s they all have that sweet spot on the blade except Marner. He also has "used" the A6.0, A6.0 ht, xcore 9, XC9, XC9 acf and AX9. I doubt he's changing his specs everytime True has a new release.

The only thing I can say about codes is that the last number relates to the flex. 1 being the lowest and 9 the highest.

He has used the XC9 for the last couple of years. I believe he just switched to the AX9 which does not have the insert in it. I was told directly from a True rep that they do not do paint jobs for any of their players. If they're using a stick it's the same tech as the retail. They can however, change the blade stiffness, corners, flex and curve type to their preferences. Also, I have Marner's XC9 pro stocks and they all have the insert. I had 4 of them, down to 2 unfortunately.

A True rep told me they send as advertised to guys who want to try their sticks. With Marner's stick specs the reason I opted not to get his XC9 was because it didn't have the insert. That's not to say they didn't make sticks for him with and without inserts.

Also not debating about specific specs as no pro would just use generic specs to try out a brand. But like other companies, Marner gets the paint job trratment cause he is one of their guys.

I did notice that Marner uses an XC9 without an insert, it seems to have an XX-Stiff A series blade. Though most of the pro stock ones for sale online still have the insert. From what I have seen and are basically just standard XC9 sticks without a warranty. 

However, his new AX9... Now that is quite an interesting stick....

Our store purchased a bunch of pro stock AX9 sticks from TRUE and here are a few variations of the Marner AX9. The biggest difference was one weighs in significantly less than the others, 368 grams vs 390 grams.  The spec sheet doesn't show any difference between any of them though, which is strange.
