Reebok A.I. 5
 
Picked this stick up last week as an impulse buy at a local rink. It has pretty decent weight and balance. Not blade heavy at all as I would expect for its price point ($99). I think this could be the best stick under $100 your going to find (excluding clearance and closeouts obviously). The mid kick took a while for me to get the hang of but I managed to rip a two wristers from inside the circles to the far corner over the glove during pickup and im normally a garbage goal guy. Using Datsyuk curve.

Keep us updated, please. I was looking into this stick quite heavily until a bunch of Warrior's went out on clearance. Let us know how the durability is and if you find any other quirks with it.

I cut 2 inches off and it is very stiff for 85 flex. No luck with slappers but I don't normally take them any way. Im only playing about once a week and no league games so I dont expect durability to be an issue for me.

I've heard nothing but great things about the A.I 5, especially it being a price-point stick. Very impressed with the recent $100 offerings like the 65S, X:40/4.0 and 6K.

From what I saw/felt in the store I think it's the best sub-$100 non-clearance stick ever. The balance is fantastic. Weight is obviously up there and I don't expect much in terms of kick or feel but the two things you want out of a $100 twig, durability and non feeling like a battle axe, are there.

I have one in a 65 flex crosby. Very nice. I actually prefer it for catching passes over my 67 flex total one. For 100 bucks it seems to be a great stick.
