Just a follow-up, I still don't like this stick. I honestly can’t catch a pass to save my life and I am ready to bail on this stick. It’s frustrating as heck! I’ve tried the soft hands, etc and between the crappy passes I am trying to catch, my learning curve on stickhandling in general and the new flex on this stick, I am done!
I am looking at either a 70 flex JR stick – which seems to be the highest flex for the JR group I can typically find or a 75 flex in the Senior sticks. My fear is getting a 75 flex Senior stick and chopping off an inch or two and bumping into the 80-85 flex range.
I have spent countless hours reading the stick buying thread:
Can you guys either recommend a stick (mainly forward, 5’ 9”, 173lbs) in the $60-ish range?
Some thoughts are Mako M1, Bauer Vapor X3.0, One80, Warrior Dolo.
Thanks again for all the input!
