Going back to wood

I just made the switch back from composite to wood sticks and am having a hard time finding Sherwood PMP7000 sticks with the Bouchard curve. I want to stick with this stick since it seems to be the best wooden stick I've ever used. Does anyone know where I can pick some of these up in bulk at?

Your going to have a hard time most companys have stopped making wood sticks. I know its messed up. Its cause everyone is going to one piece sticks.

Bauer still makes wood sticks and I almost got one as a back up, but I went with the composite instead. I don't know if they have Total Hockey stores like they do here in the Chicagoland area, but they have a large selection of wooden sticks in their stores.

Yeah that is pretty messed up that everyones getting out of the wooden stick market. Hopefully they'll come to their senses soon enough and start mass producing these beasts again. Unfortunately we don't have any Total Hockey stores around here or any good hockey shops, damn this city and it's dumb football obsession.

They have bouchard in right and left. I've always had pretty good experiences dealing with them, they always ship fast.

Can you call a local shop and see if they can order you a dozen? I'm not sure why nobody has the 7000 anymore.

I found dozens and dozens of PMP5030s with Bouchard curves at Play It Again Sports here in Cary. They might be worth a look if you can't find the 7000s anywhere.

Yeah I ordered one of those last night but I'm wondering if its the same stick just a different look. Hopefully it's no different


Yeah theirs a play it again by me but they don't carry to much wood. I'll have to give them a call and see if they can order me a couple.

Not true. Bauer, CCM, Easton and (of course) Sherwood still make wood sticks.

I tried a One55 and a 5030 before settling on a PMP7000 with a Spezza curve. I buy them in my LHS, who might be amenable to shipping them to you, at:

www.wsskate.com

I found the 7K to be a better stick than the 5030, but that's JMO. I did find them online, but primarily in 3-packs:

http://www.hockeygear.com/shpmpfg70ice.html

They don't list the Bouchard, but perhaps can order it. My LHS said sher-wood will be making this sticks into the forseeable future.

Some small LHS still offer woodies ... they are hard to find yes for sure.

The Sherwood ones you talked about I have never even seen any in a store. I do know that Sherwood will make you sticks and even copy a pattern for you if you prefer that. My friend who owns a LHS here does that, he showed me his pattern he gets as a replacement blade from them and he uses a composite shaft with it.

http://www.sher-wood.com they also have a pdf opf the current 2010 catalogue. They offer the full line of PMP sticks including your 7000 series. Their instore cuctom program (the way to get a custom pattern blade on sticks) should be available through any authorized Sher-wood dealer.

Shoot them an email

Composite is superior to wood in pretty much everyway, not sure why you would want one.

I can buy 2 woods sticks for the price of the worst composite stick, or 10 wood sticks for the price of one good composite.

For the average beer leaguer I think the difference between wood and composite is not to noticeable. Test a wood stick side by side with a composite as far as shooting, and accuracy goes and see what differences you notice.

Right, and after you have to toss your 10 wood sticks because they have a puck pocket in the blade or have completely crapped out and lost all flex, I'll still be using my composite that will still be performing as well as the first time I used it.

Well Im pretty sure Im an average beer leaguer and I notice a huge difference between woods and composites. Obviously the weight, and the biggest thing is the durability of the blade. I like to take slappers and that blade did not last long at all on my wood, basically just disintegrated within a very short period of time. Now I have noticed mid-range composite blades durability wise aren't so great either atleast with the XXV, but my one95 is blowing both of them out of the water in durability.

As for the feel and whip of the stick I am not as much of an expert on wood, but Id say I definitely noticed much more of a kick and reponse from my composites but that can also be associated with my preferring lower flexes which woods don't really seem to come in.(My wood was a 100)

Also can you really buy 10 decent woods for the price of a high end composite? If so you must get some great deals I really dont see those types of prices, I mostly have to do online shopping though.

Nobody makes a 75 flex wood stick that doesn't torque open, so I don't use them. But I can certainly see how somebody bigger and stronger than me would like wood.

I tried a composite, and felt it very stiff, lightweight, and needing a tight hold to keep it from vibrating from the shock of a hard pass or slapshot.

Maybe it was the one I tried, does anyone have any recommendations of a $75 or less composite that would hold up well, but not feel like a toothpick?

This is an old debate that wood loses every time, we have threads about this here already. AS STATED I've used wood for 35 years and a side by side test isn't necessary. My good 2 piece composites last about a year before I have to buy a new $40 blade, the shafts are still fantastic. $40 vs the $250 for 10 woodies isn't much of a selling point for wood. I would break a wood blade sometimes in one shooting session in an hour. In one year I would probably buy a stick a month for wood. Wood also because it is organic is inconcistent with flex and feel. Composites are the exact same stick always. My Harrow sticks feel as good as wood though it has been argued in here even though I own them and the arguer doesn't. I am sure there are many good compo sticks that also feel as good as wood. Finally composite blades are new until they ultimately break and wood is not, after a few shots it loses the lead in its pencil makes them subpar. Your compare you suggest is using a fresh brand new wood stick off the rack .... come back in 2 weeks if the woodie is still going and then compare it to the 2 week old composite stick. The contest won't even be a close one for accuracy and zip not to mention a crack in the blade the height of the puck from shooting and making passes. There is also a moisture issue of the fiberglas wrap springing a leak and the wood splitting, compos don't do that either.

This thread I think is about a guy who wants to find a Sher-wood 7000 series stick with a Bouchard curve.

skraut mentioned it above so check out his links he posted.

I have used Harrow for over a year now and this vibration you mention doesn't exist with them despite people in here telling me otherwise who do not even own one. Receiving passes are the same as with wood or else I wouldn't use a composite. Also harrow decided to make a stick for feel as opposed to making it super light weight. The stick is a high end stick that weighs more than most other high end sticks if that makes sense. $140 will get you a nice 2 piece and $165 will get you a one piece BUT skraut's posted code will get you 50% from that now so take advantage of it while the sale is on.

Be sure you get the correct flex (one not TOO stiff) because if not all sticks will vibrate for you if too stiff, make it too stiff feeling for a slapshot or make it hard to receive a pass.

I definitely still see Sher-wood 7000 sticks around these parts. Not sure about the Bouchard curve, but I'll have a look next time I'm out.
