No wonder they're so good.
Try Justin Azevedo, and he was number 15 in kitchener.

Loved the Easton S11 but I just think the RBK 10K is the best stick ever. Light and a really fast wrist shot!

I have a big Harrow 300 review thread on here, probably one or two pages back.

I used to rock TPS Rubber Responses for forever, but they dont make them any more. So I have a Bauer, and a Reebok.. One Supreme 130, i think and the other one is something I cant remember right now.

Just picked up a Ballistik 52 cal 80 flex shaft, and threw a Kariya Easton blade that I've had hidden away in storage since 98! So far it feels even better than my two One90's I had been using.

Easton, ST right now. They're the only company that makes the curve I like (Heatley).

Same OEM as the U+ and U+CL as well as nearly all pro stock Reebok 10Ks.

I had 3 Easton ST Heatley blades for standard shafts and sold them on eBay to a guy in Germany. I bought them and they were a 5 lie and I do not use a 5 lie so that makes me an idiot I guess hhaha.

The pattern is super awesome though I agree.

I'm not sure what you mean by double concave, you mean all 4 sides right? If so I do NOT use that, just the two sides.
Nah, "double concave" is just how they describe it in their marketing jive. I assume the "double" just means both of the larger walls. I agree regular sticks just feel huge to me now and it is a great grip for shooting (especially with the tactile grip on the corners) but I also feel like the concave walls give a better feel for the puck overall and make stick handling just that much more intuitive. I don't have a huge slapper and I noticed that the X:60 has the concave walls as well but I couldn't bring myself to change sticks... I just like the One95 too much.

TPS

I have a Bauer right now which is about to break and it will be back to TPS I hope. I have a hard time finding them though.

I use a Vapor X:60 now and love it. I still want to find a toe hook for it though.

It's not technically a full toe curve but the Bauer P10 has a pretty decent toe hook.

Big fan of the One95 here as well. I use the P88 pattern, but would really like to try the P10 or P14, but the only place you can get it is through the mybauer deal and I'm not ready to drop $200 on a stick to "try" it. I wish you could get a blade with that profile to try it in a shaft for a lot less money before buying.

I've gone through a couple different sticks, starting with a TSN Response. I went back to the TPS Response and wonder why I wasted my time with the other sticks.

TPS XN10 was the best I'd ever tried. TPS R8 Response Light which I use now comes pretty close. Waiting for my One95 I bought from a member here to show up, hopefully it lives up to the hype.

I do love my Easton Synergy II grip shafts and Warrior Dolomite shafts are ok. I really like my old Dolomite 2 blade and my Harrow #4 blade. I'm looking to get either a Harrow #5 blade or a Christian #5, same curve (Iginla) BTW, blade for the best feel for playing center next year.

And Bauer sucks...

So do OPS...

Unfortunately the only way to try a P10 is to get an X60 or One95 from the mybauer site. I really want to try the P10 as well, but not ready to drop $200 on a stick to try it out. I wish there was another way.
