Nike/Bauer Vapor V2 V.S. RBK SC87-3 V.S. Sherwood RM7 VS Synergy

Quadruple threat showdown against 4 sticks.

Nike/Bauer Vapor V2 V.S. RBK SC87-3 V.S. Sherwood RM7 V.S.
Synergy SC2

I have to chose between these four sticks, though, I never was really good at evaluating them, anyhow, I need your help HFers, I need to know which of these sticks is the most durable, powerful, flexible, better feel, wrister, slapper, and which one is good for a right winger like me at 5'11.5.

Please and thank you

P.S. is Hespeler good?

off the hop, hespeler isn't that great of a stick altho they were rather innovative with their one stick when they added a rubber pad to the blade to add a little "feel" to the stick but otherwise, it's not great.

anyways, if you want something pretty decent, grab the synergy sc2. it's the best of your list. the rbk and nbh is poorly balanced while i have no experience with the sherwood so i won't comment on it. the sc2 is balanced pretty well and the weight isn't too bad.

all the sticks have a flex point that's about 2/3 down the stick so it'll be better for your slap shot while the quickness you get your wrister or snapper off may slow up a bit. if you add another stick to your list, the tps r6, that is a pretty good 2nd or 3rd tier stick. it's amazingly well balanced so it feels much lighter than its listed weight. the durability is also unmatched compared to the 4 you've listed. the feel is lacking but you get what you pay for.

so grab the sc2 if you can but if you're able to grab a tps r6 or even an r8, you'll be pretty happy.

To be totally honest, those are all low to mid-range sticks that won't really make much of a difference, and aren't all that different from one another. If you're that picky about performance with that budget, you're better off getting some good quality wood sticks.
