Best stick for under $100?

So I broke my stick midway through the last game, and am now forced to buy a new one. I was using an Easton Synergy stick. I know it's kind of a vague question, but does anyone recommend anything for under $100?

I'm not a sniper or anything, so I don't need crazy curves or dumb crap like holes in the stick.

lmao @ "dumb crap like holes in the stick"

I agree ... I told a guy I played with that he should put one of those whizzer noise makers in one of the holes so you could hear a good slapshot windup.

Sticks for under $100 new in a store or online?

if you shop online you will be better off because you can find a closeout stick for less than $100 and it will be a top notch stick. And since you do not care much about the blade you will find more options because usually the ovcerstock stuff may consist of odd blade patterns that do not sell as well as other patterns.

I have seen a couple/three websites .... here.

Priced low to high ... pay attention to the JR or SR obviously.

You can buy the RBK 9K O-stick for under $100.00 now. You may hate it, but it *is* probably the best stick you can possibly buy for $100.00 or less. Just spray paint it black and no one will know the wiser. It's the colors that draws me to it and I smirk when they use it.

That damn thing is a lead weight. The Vapor XXV and CCM V10 Catapult are both $100 or less and good performance sticks that will last. The V10 shoots better and has good puck feel but is a little heavier and $20 more.

Winwell G300 or G500, closeout One70's, closeout Vapor XXV's or XXXX's, any other closeout OPS, MacDaddy's and Dolomites are pretty close on closeout.

Otherwise get yourself a One95 standard shaft and a wood blade, better performance than sub-$100 composites that aren't on closeout. I can't stand wood sticks as they're too stiff but a wood blade works pretty nice.

Our customers LOVE this stick. Also getting good feedback on the Bauer One55, TPS R1 & R2. Durable and decent performance for the price point.

Can't beat anything on clearance though hehe.

I got the XXV on clearance and love it, its a great stick if I had the spare cash Id totally invest in a second one at that price.

Quick question, I take a decent amount of slappers, would having a wood blade lead to it breaking/splintering at the bottom much sooner than a composite? When I was learning my slappers at first with my wood stick I started to split the bottom on my blade pretty bad, but that may have been just from me learning to shoot it right cause once I got it down I do not notice any issues like that with my composite I started using.

Sorry to take it off topic a little....

It might, depending on how you shoot. If anyone around you carries Montreal blades, the M95's are incredibly durable for the price, they are wood/ABS models so they don't splinter or fray on the bottom. I use them for outdoor shooting practice, take hundreds of shots a week off plastic boards that rip through tape, and I've been on the same blade for 9 months now, still very stiff.

Otherwise try and find a slightly used One90 or One95 shaft, might get it for $50, then pair it with a One95 blade. Fantastic performance for the money.

Unfortunately Im not in a hockey area so no dice on being able to get a m95 blade. I was defanitly thinking about investing in a two-piece next time I need a new stick though, so just tryin to figure out what exactly I want before that time comes and been droolin over gettin the one95 setup for sure just wasnt sure on to get a wood blade over comp. Thanks^

You could do a lot worse than a One95 2-piece. If you can't afford it off the bat, get the shaft and a wood blade, then save up for the comp blade.

You really can't go wrong with a Warrior.

I mean, the Johnson?? worth buying, if not for the name alone...

That name is why I would never buy it. I prefer to look like an adult rather then a 12 year old kid who thinks he's edgy because he has a stick named a johnson.

Me too ... I think Warrior sticks are overpriced and people are paying for a name just like with Reebok.

any former top of the line stick on sale for 100$ will be aeons better than a new price point twig. There are sales all the time on the various hockeyshop websites and on ebay. Trust me you will be better off with those sticks than a johnson or some ccm v06 stick they throw at you for 70$.

I thought so too but then I got a 10k. It really is an amazing stick. RBK used to be an also-ran when it came to sticks, but they are top notch now.

I could never justify buying a stick for over $200 .... ever.

No stick is worth that.

just to give you an idea of what models to look for:

Bauer Endure
NBH one90
NBH vapor XXXX (maybe a tad pricier)
RBK 7k
Warrior Dolomite 07/08 (maybe a tad pricier)
Sherwood RM9 or RM19 (last years model)
ccm v10
easton synergy ST (older models)
easton synergy elite

they can all be had for around 100$ if you look around the web.

I recently was playing some recreational hockey when a player on my team broke his Easton S17, he just threw it in the trash in the dressing room right after the game. I noticed before-hand that it was a very clean break, I asked if I could have it and he said I could. A couple weeks later I stick-fixed it for $50 bucks. Best stick I have ever used and my wrist shots zoom with the thing. I would reccomend doing it

Every 1-3 games it seems a player on our team breaks his stick, $50 and you can get an almost brand-new $200 stick.
