Olson Reactor 2 Isogrid
Price: $189.95
Replacement Head Price: $19.95
Rating: Competitive
Options: Available with Red, Blue, Pink, White, Lime, Orange and Platinum flat shafts with black heads and matching pads

Description: The Isogrid shaft is the next generation of composite technology. An array of inner carbon fibre ribs reinforce the ultra thin shaft, reducing total structure weight, while yielding handles that are stronger, stiffer, and highly durable. The Bi/Fusion technology at the next of the handle allows the fusion of metal fittings to composite tubing creating more strength then the old plastic necked fittings.
Sweep's Recommendation: One word: Stunning. From the moment you pick it up, you can simply feel the quality of the broom. Perhaps the only negative is that with performance comes a higher price tag! But hey, Ferrari's cost a little extra too!
Rocky's Assessment: This could potentially be the best invention since sliced bread… no wait, the wheel… no a wheel made of sliced bread! Ok look, it’s awesome. That’s it. Just really awesome.

Sweep's Recommendation: Not only is this our top selling competitive broom as a result of the use of advanced Carbon Fibre technology, but its one of the nicest looking!. What’s more …the use of infused metallic colouring has eliminated decals which wear off over time
Rocky's Assessment: If looks could kill, you'd be dead. Who'd have thought that there were more colours in curling other than black and white?????? Go ahead and spend another $100, but you won’t find a better broom!!!!!
