Aluminum shafts weigh a ton and the compsite sticks are about 10x's lighter then aluminum, but from what I see when my teammates use them, they go through them like they were twigs (usually last about a week or two). Aluminum will last you a lot longer then compsites for the most part. I hate those goalie compsite sticks though. I tried out the TPS one a season ago and I hated it. Compsite sticks also cost between $75-$200 as well.
Think he was using a Z-Bubble...but then again, might be something painted as one. I haven't had any problems with composite stick durability at all, and haven't seen too many guys breaking them playing in adult league. I would say your shaft would be ok if you bought a OPS, and the blade is the only thing you need to worry about. But once that wears out, you can just hack saw it and buy a blade to stick in.
