So I need a stick suggestion. I have been using higher end models for a couple years now and I have $225 in gift cards so any price is good.
My main stick I was using was a Bauer Nexus 1000, P88, 77 flex. The blade cracked in half on one timer attempt last night so it had to be put down.
I'm looking for either a low or variable kick point. I liked the Nexus enough but I felt like it did not have a ton of pop. It did have a nice soft feel however.
The sticks I am considering are the CCM RBZ, Mako 2 (concerned about durability) and the APX. All in all I've had good luck with Bauer sticks, but was thinking of trying something new with the CCM. I've heard the face is really hot, but it can almost be considered too hot and that it is a little heavy for a top end stick. I've had an x60 before and it was a good stick but I did not like the curve so I sold it. So what direction do you guys think I should go?
