We are excited to finally unify RAGE Hockey with RAGE Custom!
Combined, we are now better positioned to offer an even higher standard of quality & service to all our field hockey customers!
Hopefully this will also make things less confusing for a lot of people 😉 Yes, we are the same company but till now we were completely separate, autonomous projects.
RAGE Custom started off as an experiment a few years back, when it was just a simple HTML page hosted at ragehockey.com. As the custom service gained traction, separate teams took over the two projects and carried on serving the field hockey market in their own unique ways.
At RAGE Custom, we had more growth because our offering was unique and because we were able to expand to different markets. We have a business model that is direct to customer, so no middlemen. There is no wasted effort or materials, since most processes happen once an order comes in. From the customer’s point of view, with us, they are able to order things that matter to them! Be it the design, the product options, the composition etc.
Our customers get products that are meaningful or functional for them in some way.
That’s not something traditional field hockey brands are geared up to do.
So, when this year came around & we all faced these unprecedented challenges, it became clear that running two separate entities would not be sustainable. And so finally we are merging the two entities to become a bigger & stronger contender in the field hockey market.
With our RAGE powers combined!
At RAGE Custom, we were primarily focused on making ‘customization’ work. That meant getting the tech stack right, re-imagining operations & logistics. The RAGE Hockey team on the other hand was focused on R&D and production. Serving individual customers and even some other field hockey brands.
This merger of the 2 projects means that Asad Aftab and his production team, who are experienced veterans of the field hockey industry, are becoming core members. The production team consists of individuals, who have worked on brands such as Slazenger, Mazon & Kookaburra just to name a few. Asad himself comes from a family who have been involved in sports equipment manufacturing for 4 generations. His father Aftab Iqbal, co-founded the Dita brand & his family has been involved in manufacturing Dita sticks for 40+ years.
This makes this change very exciting for us because a combined, bigger & more focused team will boost our capacity to serve field hockey customers by lifting our quality standards to a whole new level.
So, to mark this occasion & to showcase what we can do together, we are happy to launch these amazing new designs!
These designs were originally planned to be a part of next year's range but now we can make them available to you right away!
And as with all RAGE Custom products…
Of course this also includes complete control over the composition, mould shape, length, weight, grip color, stick finish etc.
