S15 vs. One95 shaft?

If you had a choice, which would you go for and why? I already have a Z-bubble, but it's cut an unknown amount. I want to get a little collection of blades from different companies (Easton, Bauer, etc...) and see what works best. I want to test the waters of different curves, even though I love the PM9 from Bauer.

The Bauer PM9, Easton Forsberg and Easton Sakic are the curves I've used. I want to try the Lidstrom, Drury/Ovechkin, P88, P106 etc...

I was thinking about the Vapor series, but I'm a little worried of the taper. First, it migh limit me for blades, second, I tend to wreak havoc on sticks. My One90 has held up, the thing is a tank, but the super narrow bottom of my Z-Bubble worries me sometimes.

Pretty sure the S15 is a repainted Z-Bubble, nothing more. The ST being a repainted Ultra-Light.

When it comes to standard shafts, a shaft is a shaft. Go with whatever feels the most comfortable in your hands.

BTW - Most of Vapor the shafts are for tapered blades. The blades you used in your Z-Bubble won't fit. They will however fit in a One95 shaft.

I've heard similar. But I saw a picture of the S15 and it didn't to have the narrow portion above where the blade attached. I think I'm just going to get the One95 and be done with it, I love my One90 OPS so I assume I'll be happy with it.

im pretty sure the s17 is a low kickpoint stick, and the one95 is a mid kickpoint.. so theyre a little different

No, they're both traditional shafts. Easton's low kickpoint stick is the Synergy series.
