We'll have to see where this lands on the gimmick scale.
On the ice, it's overwhelmingly Bauer and Easton, with a pretty even sprinkling of other stuff. Few people are using high end sticks at my level, but the ones who do are usually not using CCM.
Where I am playing it's mainly Warrior and Reebok.
