HAND-CRAFTED STICKS, SINCE 1946

Reno has been producing roller hockey sticks using traditional methods since 1946, at its factory in Cerdanyola del Vallès, close to Barcelona. Renowned for its superb feel and balance, Reno sticks help hockey players around the world to put their best foot forward on the playing field.
Ash and beech
Each Reno stick is made following a laborious artisanal process

Our production method, which has remained virtually unchanged since 1946, involves the combination of two different types of wood : ash wood from the north of Europe - which is used to make the paddle, due to its elasticity which allows its to bend - and beechwood - which is used to make the handle, since it has a very clean, knot-free and highly durable grain.

Our process makes us unique

The process of making a Reno stick begins in special coal-fired boilers, where the ash wood undergoes a water vapour bath , which allows you to bend it and shape it like a paddle.

Always flexible, never weak

After curving it, the paddle is made by joining two pieces of wood together and placing a vulcanised fibre core on the inside, which works to buffer any impact while playing. Once constructed, it is joined to the handle and the ensemble is mechanised using a numerical control machine and a manual polishing process to obtain the stick.

The stick is finished off with a treatment to seal any porosities in the wood, and a graphic image is applied, either using silk-screen printing or digital printing.

Wood bent over 6 months, giving it a paddle shape.
