Best street hockey stick?

...within a reasonable price. Im looking to buy a new street hockey stick, ive had this Koho (abs) thing for a while, and its starting to wear down, are there any suggestions of what sticks are good for playing outside that dont wear down down very fast?

You should stay with the ABS blade. I like the KOHO street revolution. I have an Easton Ultra ABS that is my favorite but I can't find it anymore. My sons stick is a composite shaft Easton Octane with a Easton street tough/ice ready ABS blade.
Here's a link http://www.inlinewarehouse.com/HocStick.html

for street hockey you can get one for 30-60 and new blades for 10-15

I use a Nike Bauer One50 shaft with an Easton ABS blade. Decent performance, good price, good durability.

The Jofa TSM-8 Selanne stick with the 1/2" mid-curve was the greatest I've ever use. The replacement Reebok 1K stick isn't the same, even though it has the same mold. The blade is stiffer and the shaft has a low flex. Which I don't find to be good for slappers in streethockey (i.e. ball hockey...hockey with a ball on concrete/pavement).

There's a lot of flex, but the power is lost in translation and the ball has no weight. I think the flex is too long or something. So the flex has to come from the blade for more of a snapping motion.

Anyway, I'm not happy with the Reebok replacements. They seem geared for roller. Nobody is making a real streethockey stick right now imo. Haven't found one I like.

Any wooden blade should be fine. I've had 3 Koho wooden sticks in like the past 8 years and they all hold up like champs. The first one broke because the blade ended up being like 3/4 of an inch tall and a friend broke it. The second one ended up breaking after like 2-3 years. The third is still going strong. I played a lot the first 5 years and not so much with my newest stick. Also actually used the newest one for a couple shifts of ice hockey when I broke my ice hockey stick and didn't have a composite back up.

I use a koho m.v.p it's a wood shaft with an integrated plastic blade. I guess that's the best way to explain it anyway. I bought em for 10 bucks a piece which you can't beat and the blade slides nice over concrete.
