Goalies: Wood or composite/carbon?

Do any goalies here use any of the new composite goalie sticks? I never considered getting one when they first came out but at this point I am breaking a twig every other week and I can't afford it anymore. If anyone here uses or has used one, can you answer a few questions for me?

Durability: Are they unbreakable? How long do they last? If I am going to drop $125-150 on a stick it damn well better last.

Feel: I am used to wood sticks, obviously. How different is the feeling of the puck hitting the stick compared to wood? When I pick one up in a store it feels light, too light for my liking. How difficult is it too adjust to?

Any input would be appreciated, I am on a limited budget so I do not want go out and buy one. I thought about borrowing one but none of my goalie friends use them either.

Thanks in advance.
