I was able to get a great deal on a RBK AI9 stick recently, and it's pretty good so far.
There is a bit of a learning curve with it considering I used a Bauer x:60 77 flex (cut down to 83ish flex) for the past year. My last x:60 died when I slashed someone in front of the net, but the RBK stick seems like it's much more solid and will take (and give) more abuse!
The puck feel is totally different, but I'm getting used to it. Due to the lower flex and different balance of the x:60 I knew when I had the puck on my stick by the weight on the blade. With the RBK I feel that a whole lot less, so I find myself looking down WAY too much. Thank god I don't play in a checking league or my brain would be scrambled.
But none the less after 3 games it feels pretty good and I'm liking it. I'd definitely pick up another if I can get a good price on one.
