As a father that has bought many sticks for my son (who is 9 and has tried every youth stick) the best advice is save your money, and buy lower end sticks. The reason is 1) I learned on here that the stick companies paint their youth sticks to look like top of the line stick, but you don't get the technology in the youth sticks. 2) kids grow so fast that odds are she will out grow the stick in a year. 3) she will not get the flex out of the stick if you are cutting alot the stick off.
If you are looking for a stick with a narrower, smaller shaft look at a ccm. By far my sons ccm stick had the smallest shaft (grip wise to fit in smaller hands) out of all the stick companies.
Again my son has tried them all Warrior, Reebok, Easton, CCM and Bauer, and he really liked the ccm to start because it fit his hands better and it was one of the lower price sticks out of the bunch.
