One95 questions

I want to buy a one95, but I've heard they are stiffer than the flex listed. How stiff does the 102 flex one95 feel compared to other popular sticks? Also, how sticky is the grip?

the 102 is an easton 100, or a ccm 100 or warrior 100

not sure about the grip. i dont like grips. the s17 grip is really sticky

I got a one85 in the 102 flex. I think it is the same stick, just 2 inches longer.
I thought it was a tad bit whipper than other sticks around 100 flex.

I'll be watching this thread as I am going to be buying a couple of shafts for the two piece setup.

I tried an 87 flex one95 the other day in a store and it seemed a little stiffer than 87, was it just my crazy imagination? I don't want a 102 that feels like a 110, my lhs has no 102 flexes

The new shaft setups are tapered shafts with the blade having a shorter hosel. The One95 appears to be standard only though like you said.

I wanted an easier time of buying blades that I want to use and not be bound to a tapered system.

The tapered shaft mimic a one piece's kickpoint and is the main selling point of them. I might give one a twirl one of these days. My friend who owns a pro shop uses Harrow (formerly Christian) and swears by them. They run at about $90 for the shaft and $50 for the blades.

I just went with ease of shopping more than anything with the non tapered standard .620" standard size. This is why I want a Supreme One95 for the standard shaft.

I have never used a tapered shaft and cannot comment on the performance differences.

Has anyone used the 2 piece version yet? How good was it compared to the one-piece?

The sticks are not stiffer than listed. 87 is regular (85) and 102 is stiff (100). As for the grip stick compared to the nongrip, it isn't that grippy and wouldn't bother a player who only likes non-grip sticks. Also the grip starts where your lower hand would be and runs for about two feet.

The one95s don't feel like any other stick imo, it is pretty unique. The closest feel would probably be the U-Plus. The Dolomite Spyne feels like the SE16, and 10K is the same thing as the Vapor40.

Its a good stick, if your looking to buy one, go for it. However, since you want to pop out 200 for a stick, you should really check out the SE16, Spyne, newKronik, 10K/Vapor40, and the Uplus crazy lite, too. Just go into your store and check them out.

I'm personally using the U+ stick and love it now. Took a bit to get used to but love it. Actually using it over my Dolomite.

The blade is also a tank. I use the Erik Cole tape job now and the blade isn't even damaged.

First game I scored a hat trick and added a few assists. It took me maybe 2 minutes? Stickhandling is easier I find, as the cotton tape isn't causing any friction. Also, skating seems to be a little easier with less drag on the stick. The only mark on the bottom of the blade is from when I was walking outside, I rubbed the bottom on the concrete accidentally.

Oh and also, if you do try the Erik Cole tape job, make sure to use some adhesive spray. I don't and I replace the tape job after each and every game.

gonna pick some up. Tape has been coming off during games a bit lately mostly because it splits on the bottom.

Which brand of tape do you use?

Pro Grade Black Ruban hockey tape, 30 MM wide. The same type of tape goalies use. I tried it with normal Black Ruban tape but I had to do 3 strips versus 2, and when you are first starting this tape job, it's a pain in the ass to do it properly without creases.

People say it chews the bottom of the stick up, but if after 5 or 6 games I don't notice anything at all wrong with the bottom of my blade... I can only say that if it does chew it up, it does so very slowly lol

After I'm done, I take a puck and smooth it out as much as possible, then ice wax it and off I go. I'm going to re-do my CCM U+ now, and will also tape my Dolomite this way as well and see if I like it.

I don't use adhesive spray but if you don't want to replace your tap job after every game or practice, you may as well use it. What happens is that when you take a shot or receive a pass, the puck will dig into the tape and rip it. When you tape heel to toe or toe to heel, you usually pull it tight and this happens still, but not as often. The adhesive spray will hold it all together so when it would normally rip, the friction gradient is too tough to overcome and it doesn't rip.

I'll take a few pictures of my blades if you guys want me to, just to show you the rate of 'chew' on the blade.

The bottom is not chewed up whatsoever. The toe.. well, I was skating in on a puck and to chip it around the defenceman on the boards, I chipped it and somehow chipped it with the toe of my blade. Went in on the goalie and the rest is history.

The shin pad tape works well. Just take a lighter and melt it.

cptjeff gave me a tip of taking shin pad tape and putting it along the bottom of the blade and melting it, but I don't even do that for my CCM U+ and it's not chewed up whatsoever.

As per taping.. I usually go through 1 tape job per game when taping toe to heel. Sometimes I may have to rip it off and retape really quick on a line change, or change stick.

I do 1 tape job now via Erik Cole, and then re do it for next game. It is rarely actually needed.
