Why Cultec Hurley
The cúltec hurley incorporates modern materials and the latest manufacturing processes. It replicates the best qualities of Native Irish Ash and eliminates any of its inherent weaknesses. Because of our temperate climate our native ash had the resilience and strength required for hurley making. Unfortunately it is now scarce and our once great reserves have become a thing of the past.
Rigorous testing at Athlone I.T. Materials Laboratory verified the Cúltecs’ characteristics. In a variety of tests the Cúltec was compared to ash hurleys which had the highest values for the test in hand. For example the Impact Test used the results for the strongest ash hurley. Therefore the Cúltec will withstand greater than average forces.
The Cúltec is designed to improve your play and increase your confidence. Performance of course is the acid test. Because of its innovative design it produces a smooth, accurate and consistent stroke. Its large forgiving sweet spot ensures predictable and repeatable results. The Cúltec is manufactured within close limits of tolerance. This means each hurley is similar in weight, balance and effect. In a short time it becomes like a natural extension of the arm.
LARGE SWEET SPOT forgives offcentre hits.
IMPROVED PERFORMANCE gives 8.5% greater distance than the average ash hurley.
IMPERVIOUS TO CONDITIONS means it does not absorb moisture. Weight, strength and flexability remains constant over the seasons.
CONSTANT SPECIFICATION. All hurleys of equal length will have similar weight, balance and degree of flex.
EXTRA SAFETY. There are no metal bands, nails or flying fragments.
EXCELLENT VALUE. Because of its durability the Cúltec provides considerable savings over a season.
