Composite stick
 
Just broke my XXX Vapor lite and was wondering whats a good stick out there for round 100 bucks. i have been looking at the TPS sticks alot.

Go for a close-out OPS. TPS Xn10 is still one of my favourite OPS out there.

i've had my synergy stick for 2 seasons and has barely any wear... it's really light and i get good power with it...

The only sticks I use are CCM Vectors. I have a V120 shaft for about 2 years and it hasnt broke yet. Here are my rating for what composite to buy. Pluis at one time I was a pro-shop manager and Ive seen my share of people *****ing about their broken sticks.

Best Composite:
1:CCM
2:Bauer
3:RBK
4:Sherwood
5:TPS
6:Easton ( i hate easton worst sticks made)

I would list warrior but I never used one, so I dont want to make any judgements

In that case, keep your eye on the TPS Adrenaline....every couple days some place online is offering them for $69 as compared to the $189 it was a couple months ago. TPS C9 is on sale too. I'd mention the Mission Pulse too cause I saw them for dirt cheap too.

My friend just bought a ccm vector v110 off ebay. He wants to trade me his vector for my Easton Synergy Grip Pro Stock because he's taller than me and my synergy stick is a bit longer than the vector he bought.


i'm not gettin hosed right?

I dont think you are.

The v110 is going to be heavier, not have great kick and feel more dead. BUT it's made by ccm. ;)

The shaft of the CCM will be more durable than the Easton, the blade of the Easton will be more durable than the CCM. This is of course depending on what synergy and is, of course, dependant on useage.

what! i bought a 7k a while ago, snapped a month later. By the time it broke, the blade was so chipped and the blade didnt have any more paint.

Stealths are the best.

TBLfan 09-25-2007 08:07 PM

RBK's blades suck. Sealths are quality, I look forward to the S17 and I'm not an Easton fan.

salty justice 09-25-2007 08:25 PM

My RBK 5K lasted 2 months. The entire blade broke trying to chip at a puck in scrimmage. I know people love their RBKs but that really soured me on them.

2 piece is the way to go.
