I've had composites last 2 months (I'm guilty of using a light flex and I play in leagues where its fairly aggressive and not uncommon for sticks to be slashed or tangled and broken in some manner) and I have composites sitting in my garage that I picked up 3 years ago. I rarely break sticks just by shooting, even with a 77 flex (I'm about 175). Switch to composite; you'll come to love it.
This is a winning post.
