Brisebois, ironic given the name. Which means "Wood Breaker"

Actually, as mentioned earlier in the thread, he's using a composite shaft with a wood blade.

Not for anything, but there are good deals to be had on composites if you are willing to look around. I think hockeygiant has 4 different ones for 50 bucks right now.

And, if your pro team has an end of season equipment sale like the devils do...you can do even better. I have 3 Parise s17's I got for 50 bucks a piece...one looks brand new, the other 2 just a little scraped up. I'll admit, I bought them because I was going to ebay them...but I've been using them occasionally. Though, for the amount of time I spend playing foward...my grandchildren will probably inherit 2 of them.

Thats a great deal. The Islanders sell sticks at the game starting at $100. And none of their players are even close to Parises caliber.

I've stuck with the wood sticks ... the Bauer 3030 primarily as I bought a few of these quite a while ago and they still serve the purpose for me. I don't what it is about the composite sticks ... they all feel too light and whippy for me. This is the same issue I have with composite golf clubs too - I just like the weighted feeling of wooden sticks. I guess based on this line of thinking that technology is bad, I should get rid of all my DVDs and go back to VHS (I'm past the BetaMax phase at least!)

The Devils had their equipment sale at their past draft day party, I don't think they have any other sales during the year.

This is a quality light wooden stick (RBK 1K). I use it when playing D. Same pattern ( I wish RBK copied SWD Crosby curve, but the difference is in loft only).

I'm the same way. The driver and woods of my golf clubs all had composite shafts. I just used them without thinking, assuming the composite gave me an advantage. But for fun, one day I threw an old steel-shafted 3-wood in my bag, and I could hit farther with that old Spalding 3-wood than my fancy 9 Taylormade driver.

In the next few weeks I took my driver in to be re-shafted with a steel shaft, to the amazement of the guys at the store. They warned me it'd throw off the weight of my club, but switching to steel gave me more control *and* distance.

The funny part? They had two dozen kinds of composite shafts, anywhere from 5 - 10 of each kind... but only one steel driver shaft.

I use both. I have a one piece Montreal, but nothing beats a good Sherwood 7000 Coffey pattern.
