So far I have mixed feelings.

The 1st skate I hated it. Wanted it gone. But that changed.

I went out with some buddies for some outdoor puck and the stick was unreal. Snipes, dangles and monster 1 timers. But that didn't last long. My next time out I was back to the same junk. Weak shots, no aim, just junk. Then I was out 2 nights ago. Hard shots, great feel with the puck. The stick was doing its job. I still have trouble with slap shots, I find i have to hold further down the shaft to have any control. Wrist shots are great, snap shots are a work in progress for aim. So nothing is concrete yet.

I think with time I will grow to love this stick, but the change from a mid level Warrior 85 flex to a top of the line Reebok 75 flex will take some time to get used too. And I have to say, I love the feeling of the whip, makes giving and accepting passes a dream.
