If my CCM U+ breaks, am I able to use that as a shaft and just put a blade in it? Could I cut the one end off nice, tape it, and then flip the stick around? What would I be able to do.

Heres the response I got about a half hour ago:

Steve,

We are in the process of ordering shafts and blades in fact an order has
just been placed with our manufacturing plant. This process unfortunately
takes approx. 30 to 45 days. Where in Brooklyn are you located? I can check
for some broken returns for now until the new order is in. just let me know
where you are located I will see what I have in my returns. Thank you for
your interest in our Company!

SINCERELY;

MARCO *****




also on another email he said that Wonderland (a Brooklyn based hockey shop) will be carrying their equipment, so other Brooklyn based HF members could go check their stuff out.

Isn't this all just old repainted Fury crap with higher prices? Pass!

And I don't think they paid the NHL's fee, so they can't be used in the NHL unless they're repainted as a stick from an approved company.
A true one piece would be a stick that is compression molded in one shot. The old Busch sticks were. The difference is that the newer sticks (S17, Kronik, U+) have hollow hosels (no tenons) and shafts, and are fused and wrapped. The rest of them are fused.

As far as the NHL fee is concerned, the stick would have to be approved before they are able to pay the licensing fee.

As for the responses Ive gotten from them; I cant really reveal anything except that 12 NHLers will be using their equipment next season, three of which are net-minders. I can also say that they will be putting out two piece sticks within the next two months or so.

I probably COULD go into details, but wont. [PM me for info if you're interested(I may say no however)]

So I got a Brooklynite stick, (all four of them actually) and I cant say enough on how absolutely light every one of them are. Their heaviest one at 570 grams is so balanced you don't feel the weight.
Anyway, after cutting the blade off of one (was a lefty) and putting a new tapered wood blade in it, heres the final product.

I've heard that too. I havenít got them on ice yet but I got a personal look and feel at Brooklynite sticks today and they are as light if not a little lighter than Warrior sticks, a major downside to Warriors is that they are brittle! I suspect Brooklynite products will expode on the NHL within the next 2-3 years like Warrior a few seasons ago.

Idk how many retailers have them in stores but Brooklynite gear is now available in Total Hockey (stores in MI and MO and online).

Off-topic, but their second wallpaper in their website is pretty cool looking.

Another Warrior? Great. More 6 year old technology at sky high prices with idiotic advertising. Yippee!

I've never seen the Brooklynite products in person, but my impression based on browsing their site is the graphics and design looks really cheap and generic. The "Brooklynite" font is ugly and reminds me of that Eragon movie. Also, the biblical reference in their products is a turn off for me.

Also, the owner has been on several hockey communities to pimp his own products and bad mouth other companies. His tactics have left a bad taste, and with the amount of reputable companies that are putting out a variety of great products, I doubt I will ever be compelled to give my money to Brooklynite.

BTW, for a guy that hate on Warrior so much, he sure does like to copy them.

I'm intrigued by their products. The founders are really good people, and the sticks look awesome too. I'm going to be trying one whenever I get some money.
Wow I like coming here to this board because I never heard of this compnay until now.

I have been reading some of the responses in this thread.

I do like the graphics on these sticks and the color schemes. That being said I would have to try one to see if I like them or not.

Mostly no, the sticks as far as I know are all new, additionally they have a new pair of gloves which aren't on their website that are also entirely new.

The older gloves that they sold/sell are rebadged Fury's.

I got to try out the new gloves. I really wasnt impressed, they looked real cheap, not all leather (customizable, but for 130 they shouldve been all leather). the palm leather was nice, but again, wasnt impressed. Not to mention theres no extra wrist-cuff. I normally wear a 14", and tried out the 14's and the cuff barely covered my wrist. Id pass on them if youre thinking about them.

odd, I dont know, if a glove dont have that extra cuff (an under-cuff if you will) I tend to shy away from them. I dont mind any glove not being all leather, in fact my Mission 120's are full synthetic. but at a price tag of 130, ill pass on them. as I said, they look (almost like those 20$ ccm starter gloves) and feel cheap. Really the only thing I liked about them was the thick palm leather, but even that ive felt nicer on gloves half the cost.

I still pass on them.

I'm not defending those Brooklynite gloves at all, (I haven't even seen them) but a lot of people, myself included, prefer the nylon/tufftek material over leather because it's lighter and dries quicker. Same with the short cuffs; some people prefer mobility over protection. It's all about performance over durability. Just watch the game tonight, I doubt you'll find many players besides the goalie wearing "leather" gloves.

I certainly haven't bought any all leather gloves in years. Good thing too cuzz they take FOREVER to break in. Nowadays no fuss no muss, they usually break in almost immediately.

I wear the Easton Stealth gloves from 2007 or 2008 and the cuff is leather but the rest is a meshlike fabric stuff. I like them now that they are broken in, they were a little tough to break in for a new glove these days.

I am intrigued by this Brooklynite stuff though, seems like an interesting company. A little pricey i thought though from snooping around their site.

Those Easton cuffs are exactly what im talking about, if a glove dont have them, I shy away. My elbow pads are small so if theres no cuff, im pretty much exposed, and I dont like that. My Mission 120's have that cuff.

well I can tell you from trying out all of their sticks, the Almighty and the D-force are two of the nicest sticks Ive used in a while. The D-force is not a heavy stick at all, Id say it weighs about the same as a Mission z-2. The Almighty is lighter and nicer, but thats about it

The gloves, Ive only worn the new ones, and I dont like them

Goalie pads ive seen, theyre nice, but im not a goalie so I dont know how they are other than they look nice.
