Easton SE16 and NB One95 YOUTH sticks

At our local Play it Again, I found the se16 and the one95 Youth sizes selling for $59.99 CDN

This is a very affordable price for these top end sticks, and Im considering buying one for my kid brother (he's 10 but the sticks are taller than him lol )

He has played quite a lot of street hockey and tried a bit of ice (Powerskating). I was wondering which one is 'better' for him in terms of puck feel and especially durability.

Thanks in advance

I have heard Easton sticks have durability problems in the blade. If they're the same price, I say go with the One95..it's getting such good reviews.

I've heard about the same as you've stated, I wonder though how much of this applies to YOUTH sticks.

youth comp sticks are a bit overrated IMO.

A kid that young is not going to benefit from a stick like that. If you can afford it, then it's something nice to give him. If not, wood still works.

go for whatever stick is taller, he'll out grow it soon. you're comparing blue oranges to royal oranges. bauer is from china and easton mexico, but most of the composite and wood sticks are made in the same place with the same technology.
