Warranty

Howitzer Hockey strives to produce the highest quality composite sticks with the strength and durability to meet our customers’ demands.

Howitzer’s goal is to ensure our customers have an exceptional buying experience, and are confident that they are purchasing a stick of the highest quality.  In short we firmly believe in the quality of our sticks.

As a result Howitzer has made a decision to offer a no-nonsense, simple warranty policy for our customers.  Simply put, we are tired of the policies where you as the consumer have to jump through hoops in order to exercise the warranty.

To demonstrate our commitment to our customers, Howitzer is pleased and honored to stand behind the quality of our hockey sticks by offering a one-time replacement of any broken stick within 30 days from the date of purchase as a result of a manufacturing defect.

The warranty is effective under the following conditions:

  1. Must present the original receipt along with the damaged stick in its entirety (no photocopies, credit card or bank statements.)
  2. The original serial number sticker must be present on the stick.  If this sticker has been removed, or tampered with then the warranty is void.
  3. The stick was purchased from an authorized Howitzer dealer (Warranty does not apply to second hand purchases, including but not limited to Ebay)
  4. The stick broke during normal use as a result of a manufacturers defect, and there is no evidence of stick abuse, misuse (including road hockey) or exposure to open flame.
  5. The stick damage was not caused by contact with another player, skate, stick, slashing, nets or boards.
  6. The stick was not a promotional giveaway or sample stick.
  7. The stick was not part of Howitzer Heroes Donation Program.
  8. After Howitzer acknowledges the damaged stick, the customer at their expense, is responsible for sending the stick, in its entirety, to Howitzer within 14 days.
