Keep us posted, bud. I'm thinking of trying it myself on a cheap RBK one-piece I have. The stick is already useless to me anyway since I can't play with the curve that's on it.
I realize I'll most likely ruin the stick, but I sort of want to give it a try anyway, just for the hell of it. Good luck!

I would mind grinding some off the bottom of the toe to change the lie but I can't with most blades.

I don't have troubles with the curves available so that aspect doesn't bother me much.

I would like a 6 or 7 lie but they are rare these days as most blades are a 5 or 5.5

you could go do the bauer id thing and find some 7 lies.

What is the Bauer ID thing? I don't know what that is ... Is it the thing I saw on their website where you can get a custom made stick?

The only sticks to choose from are one95 or x60, which is fine cause the one95 is by far the best stick Ive used.

Its only 10 dollars more than online retailers, so 199 vs 189 for the one95.

Its a pretty good deal to be able to choose whatever curve you want and the color scheme if youre into those kind of things.

I have decided I want a One95 anyway so it wouldn't be a huge deal "settling" for such a good stick. I'm a shooter and hear that they "shoot" good.

My only problem with it is getting a two-piece one95 costs like under 150$....although I cant get the exact curve I like, I got one nearly identical. Of course if ya dont mind spendin the extra cash you should totally go for it through Bauer ID, just make sure its not a curve you could get regularly through retailers cause obviously youll just be spending unescessary money.

i can definitely attest to how well the 195 shoots. love the feel and the how the stick loads. and the durability is pretty good... so far!
