Recreational curlers benefit the most from EQ technology. Brushing produces heat. In the past, more heat was produced by using more abrasive fabrics. Abrasive fabrics wear off the pebble. This causes flatter ice and increases the difficulty in making quality shots. EQ technology will keep the heat produced close to the ice where it is needed, which provides many benefits over current brush heads. EQ brush heads feature less abrasive fabrics. This leads to less ice damage and the reduced friction requires less effort to sweep.
