don't get it. it's one you can pick up at a canadian tire or sport chek. it's a stick towards the bottom of the line so anything over $70 and you're getting ripped off.

CCM has become my stick off choice and I would highly recommend the Vector. The sticks are very solid and should last you a while. But my suggestion is not to spend so much money(especially on a supposed "special edition OV ") on a stick you may not like -invest in a couple of different wood ones and then when you think you've found the right fit, upgrade to the composite. There are a lot of things to take into consideration when purchasing a stick: senior or intermediate, toe or heel curve, round or square tip -- and all these must be considered according to your skills. For example, do you have a good backhand? If so, get a heel curve that's not too extreme. I'd suggest the Thornton.
I don't know if that answers your question.

I had the same one that everyone is boasting about, the CCM Vector one piece wood with the Joe Thornton curve. Great stick, lasted me 2 and a half years. But yeah, you can get it anywhere, especially Canadian Tire and you can get it for cheap.

I recently used a one-piece original Vector with a Laraque curve and loved it, until it broke. For anyone that has used the Vector and the U+, are they similar? Obviously you can't buy the original Vectors anymore, but I'd like a stick that is similar to it.

You can buy that exact stick at SportsChek for $59.99.

what i would do is look at a sporting goods store for a better deal. like people have said, you could by it at a sporting goods store for cheaper. but i would recommend the CCM Vector. and like i said before i like the thronton curve. it allows me to shoot an easy wrist shot. and i love it.


but the bottom line is sporting goods store, you can actually handle the stick, and look at the curve in person.


good luck!

I just went to canadain tire and saw that Overchicken stick for 89 bucks CAD. It's not worth the 89 bucks let alone $150.00

if you want a CCM stick figure out which real CCM stick you want the one offs tend to be a bit ify.

I picked up an easton ultra lite sakic curve for 17 bucks at CT today.

if it's the stick in the pic craigslist ad it's not a Vector 6.

The vector 6 is a nice stick.
