Who On Team USA Plays with Dita?
"I love my Dita EXA MK18 because I helped design it. It is exactly formed to what I want in a stick. It has a great balance of power and touch. It feels smooth with dribbling skills, but provides tremendous power for hitting, as well. It is the perfect elite stick."
"I love to play with the Dita EXA 200 (2013 edition). The unique mold enhances 3D dribbling skills and offers elite execution of precision passing and aerials."
"The Black Cat is a very light stick, which allows me to get quick shots off from anywhere in the circle. In addition, I feel I have much more power in both my forehand and backhand shots with the Black Cat. I really feel that the touch and feel of this stick gives me complete control as an attacker and makes me a threat in the circle."
"I love the EXA200 because of the toe shape -- it allows for easy control on the ball and is great for aerial play. The hit is solid and I can also get a nice drag flick from it. I played forward and now I'm back in the deep defense -- this is a great stick for either position."

Misconception of conventional mouth guards
A "The cushion effect".
It has been claimed that a mouth guard has to be of a soft material, in order to cushion the impact. This concept has not been scientifically proven, and our experiments clearly show how a soft material caves in while a hard material dissipates the forces over a larger area, therefore reducing the transmitted forces to individual teeth.
Soft material does not have a cushion effect.
An article in the journal Dental Materials, 2002; 211-215, by Danny Low et. al. confirms that thicker mouth guards have lower energy absorption.
B. "Thick mouth guards reduce concussions"
This has been argued for decades but there is no consensus amongst scientists concluding that mouth guards prevent concussions, especially not thick, soft ones. One theory states that thick mouth guards create a recoil space in the jaw joint (TMJ) which can make concussions worse (Walilko et al., Dental Traumatology (2004; 20; 255-260). SISU is the only mouth guard on the market thin enough to avoid this problem.
