Deciding between these 2 sticks
I was thinking about buying a cheap composite stick online for a backup and to try my first composite. I was deciding between:

Reebok 5k Snake Grip 08' Model

TPS Response R4 Redlite

Any opinion on which one I should get? The Reebok is a little cheaper and ive actually seen and touched it at the store so I know wat I would be getting. But ive heard good things about the TPS considering the price. Thanks.

Depends on what curve you're using with your other stick. I don't advise people to stray away from their favorite curve since it can take awhile to adjust. If you're in league play and blowing shot after shot because you changed curves it can get frustrating easily and lead to blowing a lot of money on sticks trying to find the right 1. I know, my garage is like a grave yard for 1 piece composites that looked good in the store and I hated it's guts on the ice.

i dont play with 1 specific curve but I like something close to Iginla. For the TPS i figured id go with the Nash and for Reebok i thought something like Bergeron would be close.

I have a LOT of OPS now, and the curves vary widely. Forsberg, PM9 to Afinogenov and Thornton, even an Iginla mixed in, and the common factor is the shooter, not the curve. Once your technique is good enough, curve won't make that big a difference.

Seconded. I love my XVI, and they're often on sale.
