No. 2 piece sticks are a waste of money.

You know how much he is paying for it?

I got mine on sale and really like it so far. I'm a tapered shaft guy in general, but this is one of the nicer ones. I like it better than my Synthesis and Synergy II shaft, would likely place it ahead of my Inno/Dolo tapered shafts, but it's still behind the R2 Xn10 in my opinion. I like the RBK grip and the handle shape. Decent kick, but not incredible.

Okay, so when your 1-peice, 150 dollar graphite sticks curve snaps 3 seconds into a shift...What do you do then?

TBLfan 01-15-2007 12:24 AM

no no no, let's not argue just yet! Let's wait for his words of wisdom!


colton, personally I'm not a fan of rbk sticks(although i like the sickick). It's a good deal but I wouldn't buy a stick I didn't try out first.

colton23 01-15-2007 12:33 AM

well i have tried RBK 3K's and 4K's but i was mostly just wondering about durability and such and my wallets tired of forkin out 120-150 for a one piece to break on me in a month and a half

colton23 01-15-2007 11:54 AM

(just gotta throw this out there) You do know that Crosby uses a 2-piece stick right?





I couldn't help that one, I just couldn't wait anymore! :biglaugh:

colton23 01-19-2007 03:18 PM

could i get some other opinions

JonathanK 01-19-2007 05:57 PM

i got a 6k one piece from sportchek and loved it. it was 119.99. pretty sure the two piece wouldn't be a whole lot different.

cabby 11-05-2007 03:06 PM

I've used the tapered rbk 6k senior shaft (mid flex) with a synergy II blade for about 2 seasons now.
Replaced the blade once - and the Shaft is a bit chipped up now, but it's lasted longer then I'd hoped for orginally - love the stick / blade combo.

I'm heading to the states soon, and will be looking for a new shaft - maybe the 6k again depending on what deals I find.

TBLfan 11-05-2007 03:54 PM

Just stay away from the RBK blades.

stick9 11-05-2007 03:59 PM

Think Crosby87 knows most one piece sticks aren't really one piece?

I'm gonna go out on a limb and say no.

We'reGonnaWin* 11-05-2007 04:31 PM

I'm gonna raise you limb and see you with my right arm.
I'm betting that he doesn't even pay for his sticks out of his own pocket.
