It's more than 60 dollars but it is on sale for 65 dollars. I haven't used it but they only have the whip flex. Anyone have a review on it?

I've been using the Easton Octane all season and haven't had any problems with it. I mostly use it because I'm cheap (only $22.95 USD retail). It's lighter than a wood stick and lasts about as long. I've also found I have a little more zip in my slap shot since switching from wood. I've also seen them at MC Sports, Dunhams, and Dicks for under $30, blade included, but the blade profiles are pretty limited (Sakic, Modano).

I've considered moving up to the Typhoon but I'm fairly rough on sticks and I'd be pissed if I dropped $50 (actually $54.95 USD retail) on a shaft and broke it the second time out.

That`s a great and cheap shaft. I still use mine from time to time.

I've seen a lot of Nike shafts in discount bins. They never caught on, for whatever reason -- I like mine just fine, it's not cutting-edge light but handles well.

That XN-10 looks pretty nice, but I already have too many unused sticks. CCM has the Vector 100 shaft, which ePuck has for $40 if I recall correctly. Weight wise, I remember it feeling slightly lighter than the Easton Typhoon.

For some reason my local hockey shop made a couple of mistakes with a couple intermediate Mission products. I bought a brand new M-1 for $70, supposed retail is $129. Buddy picked up an M-2 shaft for $60, and the retail is $80.

Try out the Buyer/Seller forums on ModSquadHockey. I picked up two Cyclone shafts for $20 apiece, and those retail for at least $70 at most places.

They are great. The shaft with a light composite blade is about the same weight as a TPS XN-10 or an Easton Stealth (I believe 395 grams - ?). I love the shaft and find it very similar to the TPS Response Plus (red one-piece composite). I also like the whip flex (it feels pretty close to an Easton 85 flex) as you can get off quick wrist shots in traffic and absolutely rifle the puck. I have had no problem with whip the flex and I am 230 lbs. The only down-side is that the shaft feels a little slick. If you like "grip" shafts you may not like it.

I would highly recommend the shaft and the epuck price is an absolute steal. :clap:

395 seems heavy for a shaft, do you mean with the blade in it, its 395

No clue, the rubber has smeared on most of the graphics areas. Weight is never an issue with me though.

The rubber is 320 grams without the blade.

If you are looking for a Rubber, Redlite or XN10, then go to Epuck for the best price now until they run out of stock.

They used to have the Pro Radius Rubber in Yellow and the Regular flex in the Redlite. Plus in the email I got, the sale is supposed to last a week for the Redlite and XN10. Also these are 2005 editions except for the rubber.

Woops, sorry about that. However, for $65 I'd spend the extra cash on the red lite.

I use a Typhoon with a hybrid-lami blade and the feel is amazing.

The Typhoon may be the best for the money on the market...I've sold tons and they seldom come back for warranty. Nice feeling, affordable

And enthusiasts wonder why players have trouble keeping their sticks down.
