“I want to be the best player I can be, which means using the best equipment is a priority for me. From the moment i started using EDGE sticks, I haven’t looked back. They make sticks in different styles that are so well suited to the modern day player that my only problem has been deciding which stick to use. If you want to make a difference to your game, buy one today.”
