New stick asap

I would like some opinions on some blades:
2 synthesis carbon blades-$56.98

3 sher-wood 950 blades-$50.99

I ahve been breaking blades lately (mostly composite) and am having trouble deciding which would be better to try again with the synthesis blade or go back to wood
so how durable are these blades
plz i need answers asap i must order tonight
Thank you in advance for all the insightful posts

I kept breaking composite blades too, and at $80CAD a piece I just couldn't afford it anymore so I just went back to wood ones. And I agree with the above poster, I like the feel of a wood blade a lot better. I'd for sure go with a wood blade

If you can find 'em, go for the One50/One40 wood blades. I found them to be a lot more durable than the SWD950s. Once water got into the 950s they would deteriorate real quickly and get soggy. Unfortunately for me, NBH stopped making a full-hosel wood blade in the 106 (Gagne) pattern.

I never used anything else than a Sherwood 5030 Coffey. I am most comfortable with the feeling.

do you guys play pansy hockey or something?

composite blades will hold up a lot better than wood ones. I have to change my wooden blade every month because it gets so beaten up.

True. But the 5030s are reasonably priced, so you can wear down quite a few of them until pay as much as for composite stuff. And more important: why change if you've found a stick you are comfortable with.

I don't play pansy hockey, I just prefer the feel of a wooden blade. Comps also flex a bit more than wood. I work at a shop so I get wooden blades at a real good price and it's not that much to change the blade.
