One Piece Stick Going Soft
Hello all I play adult league ice hockey 2-3 times a week and I can not seem to get one piece stick to last more than 3 months. I do not break them but they all go soft on me and lose their flex. I use either the easton s-17 or the synergy se 85 Ignila. I shot pretty hard and I think I get a lot of torque from a shoulder brace I wear. Once the stick breaks in especially the s-17 they are great for like 2 months and then I feel like my shot is dead or off the mark big time. Is this something common or uncommon or maybe I am losing my mind?

I am about 5'10 and weigh 185 or so but I do shoot pretty hard maybe I should go to a stiffer flex? I was even thinking of going back to wood.

I really am out of options any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks this is my first post.

Everything i hear about the S-17 stick is not good durabilty wise. great stick to shoot with but really bad durabilty wise from what other have said about it. but i feel that way sometimes with the TPS i have and sometimes ill go back to a 2 pisce stick for a month or 2 and switch it back and it feels like new again.

I am going to go to the pro shop after work and try some sticks out and see what I like. I have a game on sunday and really need a new stick.

Try a One90 OPS, I've had mine for a a little over a year and it's holding up pretty well, lost a bit of its edge, but its still a sturdy stick.
