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?
I've used the RS and RS2 for a few years now. The RS2 is more durable, but I think the RS has better pop in my opinion. Sportchek was selling the RS for $140 awhile ago. I use 85 flex and it gets whippy after awhile. The length of my stick is average to short, and I'm around 170 pounds.
I'll try the V9 after I break these. I held one the other day and took some shots and it was deadly.
