Ahhh Scandium, only the most elite shafts in the industry have the privelage of being constructed with the ridiculously strong and lightweight material. When it comes to D-Poles and long crushing checks, having a strong stick is absolutely essential, those breakout passes don't get any easier with multiple dings or bends in the shaft. The feather light weight is immeadiately noticable, and if you think you were picking off passes before, get ready. Materials aside, Brine went all out with their control die shape which aids precision and is also one of the stronger profile shapes on the market. Futhermore, the raised grip and sandblasted finish ensure you'll never lose a handle you should've had.
