Bumping after first use.

The puck feel of the blade is pretty good. Pucks were a little jumpy maybe because the blade felt a bit thin, but most anything that hit the blade died enough to handle. Pucks on the tape felt solid.

The lower lie is much, much better for everything for me. I'm now fully convinced that having the multiple lie options (especially lower lies) will be more beneficial to the player most other aspects of the blade. It's been a long time coming to have these options.

The blade is also incredibly well balanced and the stick feels like a good quality one piece instead of a two piece with a heavy or disconnected blade. Again, a good sign.

I still may or may not try a tapered shaft from Base (money is tight and I can get a new Warrior shaft for cheap on clearance), but I'd have no hesitation buying from Base again at this point.

I'll update again periodically with durability reports.
