Then I think of my wallet, and how getting a tapered shaft would be affordable and durable, and I could pair it with whatever blade...
Then I think why spend $90 on a shaft if I can spend a little more for a clearance X60, but then I could spend a little more on a new APX or Nexus...
It just never ends.
This was one of the reasons why I don't play in net anymore. Don't get me wrong I still go through alot of player equipment, but it doesn't cost near as much buying goal equipment.
Have you tried the Nexus 1000? I bought a 77 flex (cut it down, so about 87 flex) kane curve. It amazing how much little effort you need to release a hard snap shot. Compared to my X:60, it's night and day. I love this stick.
