Warrior Bentley any good?

Just saw them on sale in Sport Chek, didn't realize it was such a cheap stick, evidently because it's heavier than a typical composite. How does 594 grams measure up with a typical wood stick? I wonder if this is a good stick to try out for my first composite, wouldn't be quite so afraid of breaking it.

Cheap materials, lower performance. 95% of the time, you get what you pay for with composites. Look for a close out top of the line model or a pro return, they'll be cheaper and will still perform better than the Bentley.

I just would feel terrible if I didn't say anything and his first composite experience was no good...don't be afraid to get a low flex either.

Saw one recently in the store - pretty heavy stick actually; I don't think you would like it.

Buy a wooden stick and save the $40 for a real composite stick by an actual hockey company

Actually, a team mate of mine had just bought the Bentley and here's my analysis from using it for a few shifts for the purpose of replying to this thread.

It's heavy, but it's balanced. It doesn't feel like it weighs that much. It's solid too, I would bet it could take a hell of a beating.

I had a nice shot with it, too. I rung one off the cross bar from the blue line.

If I was spending a few on a stick, I'd buy one.

I might try one out after reading some online reviews which virtually all describe how well balanced the stick is and also how durable this stick is.

For the price you can't go wrong if it is a durable stick. I'd get one too.
