Wood is garbage to pretty much any high level player nowadays. Purists used to counter with "Kariya and Spezza use wood sticks" well guess what, they both switched, Kariya to Easton, and Spezza using the new Sherwood with the wood decal(he even used the RBK 10k for awhile then stopped, dont blame him, those are garbage). I switched to composite when I was 12 and never looked back. When I mess around in practice, we switch sticks sometimes, and when I use a wood one, it feels 18 times heavier. I mean, MAYBE a defenseman could make a good use of one, but for a forward? Wood is garbage.

You will get used to the newer ones, it takes time, but once you do, you'll notice small improvements.
