I'd rather spend ~200 bucks every couple of months and be done with it. I've had composites last right around 6 months. I'd have to buy woodies every 2-4 weeks...
Wood would just not work for me... I'd be going through one every 2-3 games easy
I love the feel, but they break down way faster than composite.
No wood won't detonate like a composite does on TV, but:
#1 - you aren't a pro, you aren't being hacked like a pro and you don't load and take shots like one
#2 - Their sticks are MOSTLY graphite and with stiff flex, and from what my neighbor tells me, they're not quite as durable as the retail stuff, but are lighter and better balanced
#3 - Though you don't see wood sticks detonate like compsosites on TV... you dont' actually realize how many wood sticks pro's used to go through in a game. They lose their flex with every shot, hack... Composites may lose a bit of flex in the blade in time, but the shaft remains consistant until it does break.
anyways... why spend $60 on a premium wood stick, where I'm not sure there are any decent wood ones other than 5030, and spend that on a "discount" quality stick...
I've seen S15's go for $79, which is alot of quality for the buck
