I think Jarick is the last person here who will be convinced to switch to a higher flex haha

That being said I still bought more and went through three of them.

Now I'm using the Easton Mako 85flex with a hall curve and love it, but much like the x:60 they break ALL THE TIME. I guess that's the curse of using a stick that light.

I think next I'm going to go with an Easton RS. Played around with one in the rink shop the other day and it felt nice. Anyone have any love/hate for it?
Very, very poor blade durability on the RS. RS2 is supposedly better but I probably won't buy Easton sticks for a while now until they sort things out. Even the V9/V9E series apparently have durability problems. Surprised you have problems with the x:60.

With that said, he's broken three of them since the beginning of the year. He's a big guy who plays very high level hockey, but he's still breaking them more than he likes. Loves the stick though.

I'm not a burly guy in the least and rarely break sticks at all, so I'm looking into getting one. Tough to convince myself though when I still love my APX's and want a Nexus 1000 more.
