Best Hockey Stick

Which stick is the best stick, performance based only, not price based?

There is no one best stick. Everyone has a personal favourite. I will die with my sherwood coffey.

Exactly. I love TPS and wont buy any other composite shafts out there. Seen way too many Eastons break, wont give NikeBauer any more money. What one person may like about a stick youll hate.

there is no best stick. It depends on what you like and the type of player you are. Its like asking what is the best length in comparison to your body.

If you're looking for the "best" stick to improve your shot, you might as well go back to



to improve your shot mechanics

Too soft. Just get a normal woodie.

I personally like Missions - very consistent performance on the shaft flexes, and great whip. Some of them are tanks.

Totally agree. They and TPS are very under-rated imo. Even the price-point TPS sticks/shafts are worth their price in durability.

I just bought a Mission Ion 110 flex. Can anyone give me a heads up on it? Low flex or anything???

What I wouldn't give for a Titan 1020. Those were the days.

I gave up on Easton a lont time ago. Started with watching a 15 year old snap a shaft like it was nothing on a wrist shot. Then I was done with them after watching a teammate break 2 brand new Synergys in a period and then watching other teammates break several more throughout the season.
