That might be the case if you were using a heavy wood stick. I've never used really heavy sticks in my life, so the transition to all composite wasn't night and day at least in the weight department.
Lot of people say that one-piece composite sticks feel like they're exploding in your hands when you receive a puck. I personally feel like there is a lot of shock as well but don't mind it in terms of passing. But when I stickhandle, it doesn't feel like the puck is coming off my stick smoothly.
