Anything Bauer. I especially like the Bauer sticks with the grippy finish. To me, there is just nothing like the balance and feel of a Bauer stick.

You need to try a Harrow. Not saying they are first, second, or third. But they deserve recognition for giving us top quality twigs for 1/4 the price.

I really like both Nike-Bauer and Easton sticks; those are the only two brands that I've tried. Personally, I'm open to try out any brand of stick as long as it fits my budget. Brands that I would like to try in the future would be CCM, Warrior and Harrow.

Oh man. I bought one of those back in the day while it was on sale. Big mistake. I've used it... in maybe 3-4 practices and that's it. I still have it lying around at home.

The One95 is so forgiving on slappers, I just love it. There's nothing it doesn't do well, and it's brilliant for loading up a slap shot from anywhere on the ice. It's also very, very light, which I appreciate, being a smaller player.

I'll probably use a One95 OPS until I can't find them anymore. They're just perfect for me.

I couldn't get the damn 67 flex One95 to flex much at all on wristers and snappers. No clue why. I had no problem with the Vapor 67, and I had pretty good shots with Easton 70's and Warrior/Harrow 75's.

BTW, Sapporo rocks.

You've gotta be kidding dude... 67? That's not even an adult stick. Generally I wouldn't question but I've seen your slapshot vids and you don't look like a 140lb guy. I'm astonished if you can't get any loading with a 67 flex wrister.

Yeah.. Even he's not a big guy he's not THAT small. I think there is something wrong with your technique, involing loading the shaft properly. Im about the same height and 175lbs+ and i can load a 2 inches cut 85 flex CCM just fine

I prefer the RBK's. The Eastons are outstanding too, but I never liked their feel as much as reeboks.
