Bauer Totalone or Easton S19 stick
 
I'm looking for opinions from people that have used both the Bauer totalone and the easton s19 stick. Which one do you prefer and why ?

I was using a Bauer x60 then i switch to the Bauer Totalone, and i liked it alot more in terms of balance and overall response of the stick, my shot wasn't too much different though.

I've never used a easton stick before, until i tried out my friend's Easton SE16 during pickup hockey. I was really impressed with how much harder my shot was, in terms of shooting it felt better, but in terms of stick handling, i would still prefer my totalone.

After using the SE16 i thought maybe the S19 would be a much improved stick and the stickhandling might be close to the totalone. I really wanna try out the s19, but it's a $300 + stick, maybe Santa will be good to me this year.

I have both the S19 and an X:60, I have used a teammates TotalOne. The TotalOne is the lighter of the two sticks, but not by much at all. The S19's elliptical profile give it a very low kick point and it has the best quick release shot in my opinion. They are both two of the best sticks on the market, I think the TotalOne has the advantage in slap shots because of its mutli-flex point design. In the end it is what is more comfortable for you, I prefer the S19 but that does not make it a better stick.

The X:60 is the one with the multi-flex point design. The totalone's are midflex.

The S17/19 are mid-low kickpoint, not a true low kick point due to the elliptical part of the stick.

But I haven't used any of the sticks so it's hard for me to say. But considering the durability issues with the S19's and how nice the TO's felt in my hands, I'd probably choose the TO stick.

You already have arguably the best stick on the market, and are thinking of spending $300 on another stick? Eek! Save your money/your parents money!

On the durability I would agree. My X:60s last seemingly forever and my S19s break after a few good slashes across the elliptical portion of the stick, I would assume the TotalOne is also very durable considering it shares a lot of the same materials with the X:60.

I simply choose the S19 because Bauer does not have a blade pattern that close to the "Chara" curve I use and I love the feel and shot I get from the S19.

I've never heard any complaints about S19 durability. Durability was the main issue Easton addressed when designing it, since the S17 had horrible breakage issues. IIRC, they changed the method in which the kevlar is incorporated into the stick. I had my first S19 for about 8 months, maybe 30 games or so, and the only reason it broke is because it ended up on the other team's bench after a big scrum.

in my opinion, the SE16 is the perfect stick

it's the best stick i've ever used and could be had for $100 less than the S19

The SE16 is a great stick but is has very different characteristics from the Stealth series. Everything is preference and feel for the player. I know some players that cannot stand one piece sticks and play way better with a two piece and a wood blade.

I have an intermediate SE16 Sakic with crazy flex. (65) I love it. I am in Minor Bantam if you are wondering about the intermediate stick.

The Totalone is a superior stick to the S19. Most top end sticks on the market are with the exception of perhaps the 10/11K's. The only thing the Easton's have as an advantage is a better curve selection.

I've heard the S19 is basically the S17 with a kevlar wrap around it for durability. Either way, it seems like the general consensus is the S19 is more durable than the S17

I have a TotalOne, X60 and an S19. The TotalOne and X60 are my favorites, the S19 just feels dead compared to the other two.

I think current stick prices are a crime. I thought spending $80 on a high end stick was a lot. Now its hard to find a stick that isnt mostly heavy fiber glass for that price. Luckily for me I rarely break sticks anymore.

total ones great for slappers

s19 great for snappers

The shaft of the S19 is very durable. The blades, however, suck. They go 'soft' or 'dead' or whatever you want to call it pretty easy. I've had two retail S19s and two pro stocks.

Both pro stocks have had cracks down the middle of the blades, but the shafts are fine no matter how much I get slashed and whatnot.

BOTH retail sticks (bought far apart in batch codes, two different blade patterns) have the toe start to split apart, and that makes them 'dead' long before the shafts weaken.

My next stick will almost definitely be a Bauer, just to try something else.
