Would you guys recommend a Reebok 16k or a Warrior shaft? These are the two shafts i'm looking at right now. I've heard Warrior are super durable.
Also, out of curiosity, has anyone liked Combat sticks? I know Jagr uses them and i'm just wondering. They look snazzy.
I've used Reebok and Warrior shafts. The Warriors had better kick for me. Reeboks have always felt stiff.
I would go tapered though, blades are much lighter and it's better balanced. I had a Warrior AK27 (standard shaft) that felt like someone taped a 5 pound weight on the end of it.
I've never used Combat as they never go on sale. I'm not paying $200 for a stick I'm not comfortable has been "proven" like a name brand. A lot of people like them though.
