Almost everyone I know, many who are elite players, have said the same thing.

There is a big difference between the feel of wood and a composite, very few people would argue that. I've even had people fire passes at me while standing still, and let the puck hit my stick without cupping it, just to see how far it will bounce... and there is a huge difference in the way a puck "pings" off a composite as compared to wood.
agree 100%
