I am not sure what my freind was using I will have to ask.I currently use the CCM Vector:Thornton. Its not a bad stick but I would like something a bit lighter. My shot doesnt need any help at all but if this could increase it even a little that would be great. Also want a bit quicker hands so I would assume a lighter stick would help in this area. I would think it would also help while on the P.K. to swing the stick back and forth in the passing lanes. My slapper is great and my wrister is above average but the Vector seems pretty stiff so a more "flexy" stick would probably give me a better wrister I would assume.
