I purchased an Easton Sc2 stick for around that price. It's a low end composite stick but a big upgrade over what I was using before.

Depends the store, i went to a canadian tire with a buddy and we noticed a mission m1(this was when they came out). Then he says just start looking at sticks. He made sure nobody was around and grabbed the cheapest wood stick, pretended he was looking at the stick but peeled off the UPC. Then he grabbed the mission and put it on that stick while testing the flex and looking at the curve. The stick cost him $11.99 instead of 150 or whatever they went for back then.

Always make sure the cashier doesnt seem like a person with hockey knowledge. The cashier we went with was an east-indian lady that had to be atleast 60.

Well if you want to avoid theft I'd say go for the Bauer XII. It's not a fantastic stick, but for less than $60, it's pretty damn good.

My all time favourite cheap stick was the Vic Xcaliburs I used to have. Most people I knew hated them but I loved mine. I don't think they make that exact stick any more, but the current model low end Vic might still be decent.

I was using aluminum for years before I shifted back to wood.

At that range you'll be able to choose from a high end wood stick or a lower-end composite stick.

The low end composite stick will be marginally lighter and may havea more responsive flex, but you won't have a tremendous "feel" for the puck.

A high end wood stick will be marginally heavier and will in all likelihood have a smaller "sweet spot" for stick flex, but you'll have a better feel of the puck on your blade.


I would only recommend taking the low end composite if you're trying to mask poor shot technique.

When I first started playing about a year ago, I used an Easton S5 shaft with a Sher-Wood blade. I don't think I paid more than $65 at the pro shop. That shaft is probably under $40 by now.

Try one of these:

I like the stick a lot at the price point, and it's only two dollars more than you're looking to spend (plus shipping).

I've got a two piece Easton Ultra Lite that I like but I think it's 50-something + a blade.

id say go with a composite shaft (find a cheap one on ebay, really great deals) and a wood blade. its the best combo for flex and all the technicalities that a shaft is used for and feel for the puck.

I don't know where you are living but we have these stores called Liquidation World. You kinda have to go once a week or so but you can get some great deals. I load up when there's something good - usually a Canadian Tire bundle that comes through - and give them to the kids in our organization.

This year I got Nike helmets for $8, Mission Fuel skates for $40, TPS and Easton shafts for $3-4, blades for $4, shinpads for $10 - all new, in the box, under warranty.

My advice, be patient and hit the liquidation places. You'll find a gem buried away in there sooner or later.

At 40ish dollars, wood is best by far, but you can spend $10-15 and get something like an XXII on sale, which is a quite decent indeed. The funny thing is around $50-70 is no mans land in composite stick land, but $80-100 is "welcome, partner" territory.
