Perhaps, but it was farrrr lighter than any stick I've ever used

I got a chance to try it out last night, and it was amazing. I was doing one-handed dekes all over the place with relative ease, and stickhandling better than ever. I didn't get an opportunity for a slapshot, but my wrist shots, passes, and even my backhands were quick and crisp. I didn't really notice a "lack of feel" for the puck... but maybe it's because I used a thinner layer of stick tape.

Long story short... I was never really convinced that composites were better, but after using even a low-end one I'm sold. Also, 100 flex isn't nearly as stiff as I would have guessed.
