Easton Stealth S17
 
Is it worth getting? I heard that it is a really good stick, and improves the game... That's not what I'm worried about, is the stick durable enough?
If you had any experience with this stick, could you please rate it out of 10 for wear and performance, and also include some feedback.

Thanks

I liked the stick, very good for wrist shots and puck handling, but very poor for slapshots and durability. I prefer the one95 and 10k, both are better values.

really? whats wrong with slap shots?

I will let some other people answer that question too, but they just felt weird. Not too strong, not great accuracy either.

Is the one95 a good stick? I'm thinking of getting one.

I really like my S17. Great loading on shots and a good feel on the blade. I've had it for a few months playing 3-4 times a week and it's held up, but I know a lot of people who have had durability issues with it.

Haven't tried the One95, but know a lot of people who have and they loved it.

my friend had the S17, and yeh, its not too durable (he plays Junior now) but its great while it lasts lol, he really liked it...until it broke at the elliptical part

The One95 was alright, but I ended up snapping it in half with a hard slapper lol

Which one is more durable? the one95 or S17?

I put one of my one95's through 15+ stick times and games so far, it's just like new. My s17 blade wore out after abut 30 games and stick times...

I prefer the SE16 over any of the sticks mentioned above. I have a 100 flex Sakic curve
w/o grip and I think it is the best stick I have ever used.

I wore out two S17's in just a month each of use. The blade started to crack on each one, just from normal play, as I rarely wind up or take anything more than snap shots. I was very disappointed in them so I went back to using an older Synergy ST which puts up with a huge amount of beating. For the price of the S17, it's surely not worth the durability.

probably the best the stick out there only 2nd to the one95. Biggest problem with the s17 is durability. Other than that i have no complaints.

I think the 10k is very much like the s17, but probably better for more powerful shots and holds up better.

I heard the One95 is better than the One90. I used the One90, and honestly, it's the best stick I've ever played with. The stick loves hard slap shots, has pretty good feel, and very nice wrist/snap shots. I almost never take slappers any more and the One90 was 96 flex so I gave it away.

I love the S17. I believe that it is the best stick on the market right now.
