The stick has a black on black design, they say it confuses the goalie cause he doesn't know where the puck is

My belief. If that black on black design really confuses the goalie "that much" the goalie isn't very good.

Wow, thats a lot of money for a stick like that. Just buy a wooden stick and spray paint it black.

Ditto. Same goes with using white tape to blend in with the ice, so the goalie can't see exactly when the shot was taken, the puck just leaves the ice. I really don't buy it, and goalies will agree this is, more often then not, the case.

Why not just paint it like other posters mentioned? Or, since carbon fiber and carbon composite is naturally dark/black, just rip off the graphics (If it's not a grip model).

Wait a sec, why would the shaft help shade the puck? Almost all of these one-piece sticks' blades are black, so would it help hide the puck?

I like the stick, and it is as light as hell but like WTF?

Personal preference most likely. The shaft color has absolutely nothing to do with anything outside of looking how you want it, or looking cool.

id rather have the warrior Kronik, for that price..any durability to this stick?

I know that David Vyborny spray paints his stick all black.

I spay paint my sticks flat black after they get beat up a little bit. I feel like it makes the stick last a little longer but it probably doesn't help.

XweekendwarriorX 09-12-2008 09:59 AM

if it wasnt so much money and with other sticks out there that i know more about i would maybe think of getting this stick. if anyone ever uses it or knows someone who does please let me know.

The Tikkanen 09-12-2008 07:43 PM

It's hard to switch from 1 stick to something you know nothing about at that price. If you buy it and hate it you're stuck. I don't even know what their patterns are so there is no way I'd buy that.

Haha, can just picture some dumbass spending 190 on the stick believing that only to tape it up with white tape...

I'm not sure how well the black paint would hold up, anyone with experience? I've used my One90 less then a handful of times and maybe its the way I play/use it, but it's chipped and peeling in a lot of places. The paint doesn't rub off on the pal of your glove or anything does it?

Marketing issues - he still uses Kohos which isn't a brand anymore.

No, use flat black, otherwise known as murderirizing.

As a goalie, I love players who have sticks that ''catch the eye'. It doesn't matter what color it is, even if it's all black. When looking through a pack of players and I see that stick, I know what player that is without looking up. If you guys really want to confuse the goalie, make everyone on the team have the same stick or paint them all black.

WhipNash27 09-23-2008 09:41 AM

So many sticks with so many gimmicks. The guy with the $200 hi-tech composite stick isn't going to be much better than if he was using the $100 composite or the $30 woody. I like the feel and lightness of the composite and I like having a two piece, but I never spend more than $100 on a shaft, it's not worth it.

Um no. Maybe 5-10% of NHL players spray paint their sticks.
