Curves: The Delta head is available as a traditional straight head, and in 3 curves:
5 mm curve: the last 4 cm of the head is curved upward 5 mm for easier elevation of wrist shots and more aggressive stick handling; the first 15 cm of the head remains straight to preserve easy backhand passing, flips, and edge shooting.
10 mm curve: the last 5 cm of the head is curved upward 10 mm for much easier elevation of wrist shots and more aggressive stick handling; the first 14 cm of the head remains straight to preserve accurate backhand passing, flips, and edge shooting.

The radius of the 20 mm curve matches the curve of the ball for maximum ball retention.
Weights: The Delta head is available in 3 weights:
