I takes a while to get used to a compsite, I used wood for my whole life: got a compsite last summer and I must say I like it better than the wood...The biggest thing IMO is to get the right blade curve...I don't know, I can feel the puck just the same if not better now with the compsite...I know I am in the minority but I don't think it has anything to do with the goal scoring problem in the NHL now(I know you didn't post this), the goal scoring problem is that all the creatitivy has been taken out of the game with system like the trap and the left wing lock...Send 2 guys in pressure the puck and hit!!!
