Ive used them for both. I gave Marco a call (one of the owners) and they sent me some returns to try out. I really liked the D-Force and the Redeemer. the Almighty was way too light for me, some might like it...I didn't. the Underground was ok, but didn't really stand out compared to the other 3 he gave me.

all in all, they're durable as hell. My shot is fine with it, and if it ever breaks, I would buy one. (The D-Force I'm currently using is a return) If they made shafts I would buy one as I prefer wood blades. I think its definitely worth the 60$ for the D-Force to try it and if you don't like it, its not that much to drop on a stick.


My review on the company as I tell everybody else is that their sticks are pretty good, but stay away from the gloves. Those are terrible.

I have tried the Almighty, it was surprisingly very good. There are tons of sticks i would prefer to use, but this one wasnt bad at all. It wasnt worth the 200ish it was selling for at the time though, not sure what the prices are like now.

Never shot their stick before but they passed the flex/feel/looks test at their booth at the lets play hockey show this year. Not saying much I know but more than I can say about other new vendors I saw there. There gloves actually felt pretty nice, nothing that made me say I need to go out and buy these but they felt nice. They also have a glove custom glove program that is pretty detailed, every single panel on their gloves can be set to your exact specs. Wouldn't mind giving their whole lineup a runthru.
