Delivery devices are of two types. There are devices for those who deliver in the traditional way, from the hack and those designed to be used by those who cannot get in the hack anymore.
Delivery devices used in a standing position are usually called “sticks” and come in many different styles. If you are considering these you might want to speak with people who have different styles to see which one might be best for you.
ROOKIE CURLERS - You get 10% off all your first season curling equipment unless the item you select is already on sale. Not only that but you don’t have to buy all your items at the same time. For instance purchase shoes in the fall and get 10% off. Tell us you are a rookie in the new year because you now want a broom and you get 10% off that item as well.
Teachable Moment: Some delivery device curlers like wearing a curling shoe even though they don’t need the slider on the one foot. We carry and can get “plain” curling shoes. These are curling shoes with no sliders just grippers. There is also one brand from Acacia Canada called the Blitzen that is made for stick curlers.
