Also, some older "composite" blades are perfect for rough surfaces. I've used CCM and Montreal composite blades that are great. I've also had success with some Reebok and Franklin blades. And if you can find some Koho ABS street hockey sticks those are good.
You mean this : ?

If so then you're mistaken. I've had 4-5 blades and they are absolutely meant to be used on outdoor surfaces. They are not, however, the most durable, as the outermost fiberglass laminate layer tends to delaminate sooner than other ABS blades. ABS is a safer bet compared to composite.

I find Reebok ABS products to be the best.
