The ST was built with multiple layers of kevlar wrap as part of its construction, which gives the shaft its excellent durability. The blade features 3 carbon bridges (only stick to have that many) which add to durability and rigidity. Although not as high performing as other top-end sticks, the ST is still considered a top-end stick with a workhorse work ethic. Many Easton sticks you see in the NHL are actually repainted STs, the technology in this stick has been on the market for many years and is a proven product.
I am a huge fan of the Synergys and the ST just works great if you're not into replacing them often
its a simple, non-tapered non-nonsence stick... though they say a "low" not a really low kickpoint and I don't think I've been able to slap a shot any harder than this one, even an S19 or One95
It's blade feel to me, is like almost any other synergy, regardless of the Elite, SE16 or EQ50
My 2nd gen says 460g's as its weight, so its not that far off than the last generation synergy's (i.e. EQ50) and yet bolds more durability than I think any other Easton or even Bauer
