Well, I'm exaggerating a little, but I've had about 6 of these sticks and I find they break rather easily...But they are dirt cheap and I absolutely love the curve on them so I buy them often.
I recently bought this Koho Torpedo stick, with an Amonte curve I think, and so far I like it. For some reason, I can't get my slapshot to rise properly with it but I've had that happen to me before and it just takes some breaking in. I love how the stick feels in my hands and my wrister is pretty nice with it.
I also bought the Nike Quest 2 stick with the Lecavalier curve (the red and beige one) and used it all winter. At first, I really, REALLY hated the stick. I couldn't get a slapshot off, I couldn't get a wrister off, it was terrible. No matter what, I couldn't lift the puck. But after maybe 2 weeks of using it, it became my favorite stick. I started ripping these amazing shots, and because the stick is so long (which I like), nobody could get past me (I play D on ice). I would highly recommed this stick if you want something cheap. It also doesn't seem to break as easily as the other Nike Quest sticks, which is a plus.
Another good stick I used this summer was this stick I found at Sports Experts. I can't recall the name of the stick, but it was black and said "Roller Hockey Stick" on it. It had the most amazing curve I have ever seen. I have never shot the ball the way I did before this stick. It also had a fiberglass blade which lasted a good 2 months of roller hockey. The stick is still good, but the blade is getting kinda thin now. It's a bit more pricey than other wood sticks (around $40) but it was soooo worth it. I originally bought it just for the curve but I'm glad I did because it turned out to be the best stick I ever had (for roller hockey). I would have gotten another one but they only have it at the Sports Experts in downtown Montreal and I didn't feel like going all the way there.
