Never had a chance to try one out, they dont seem to be available anywhere in the UK, but i have only ever heard good things about Innovative sticks and shafts. I have been thinking about getting one of the Novius shafts imported but that would be expensive. Anyone have any experience of their products?
I am currently using an RBK 5K shaft, ive had it three weeks now and i love it. I was a bit sceptical at first, wasn't expecting it to be up to much. But in the time ive had it, ive got my wrist shot back (had been using easton octanes and they weren't up to much compared to my old mission dangler) and my slap and snap shots are moving a bit quicker these days
Overall, its just a matter of seeing how durable it is. If it lasts a few more months then i would happily part with another £50 for a new one. The only reason i wouldnt is if i went after a far more expensive one, but thats unlikely unless innovative start selling over here.
As for blades, for about the last 5 or 6 months i have been using TPS Genesis blades, been trying out the Nash and Morrow patterns. Im happy with both. Both of them were cheap (about £20) and so far, they have hardly weakened at all. I had been using Koho crossovers previously which cost the same, and after 2 or 3 weeks, the blades were much more flexible than when new. The genesis blade i have used most (morrow) is still as rigid as when it arrived through the post.
Although if stick handling is the most important thing for you then try and find a Mission dangler, they are indestructable, decent weight and the perfect shape (radius wise) for slick stickhandling. Thats what ive found anyways. The only problem i had with it was firing a slapshot properly due to the curvature of the shaft.
