Montreal M60 OPS

Bit the bullet. Was $55 after a 10% off coupon from Total Hockey.



Mine is a 65 flex intermediate in a Knowlzee pattern, which was pretty close to a P88. I've been wanting to try a more closed pattern but didn't like how the Forsberg felt like it was kinked off at the heel, so here's kind of a compromise with my usual P92.

Advertised weight is 455 grams for the senior stick. Feels about that light, definitely lighter than anything under $150 or so that I picked up in the store.

It's got a matte texture finish to it which feels kind of grippy but not overly so. A lot like the Miken actually. And the graphics look like the Miken too.

3k weave on the blade and a regular taper, basically it seems a lot like any OPS you would have bought five years ago.

Oddly enough there's a warranty on it and it has a Warrior warranty sticker on it because Warrior bought out Montreal a few years ago (and then absorbed the goalie stuff while killing off the excellent wood blades and sticks).

Which makes me wonder, what the hell is this stick? It's a limited run for Total Hockey. I wonder if these are leftover Dolomite shafts with a 3k blade in them? The dimensions don't seem far off as they are a boxy-ish shaft with rounded corners. Hmm...

Anyways, I'll sneak it in the house tonight and tape it up then use it for Monday's game.
