Whats the best wood stick out there?

I recently broke my synergy in game and need to buy a new stick. I dont have the money to get a new composite stick so i think im just gonna go with a good ol' woody. Whats the best one out there to get? Im 5'9 155 pounds if your wondering cuz ill probably need a flex under 100.

But if you're going for common retail sticks, the Sherwood 5030 is widely considered the best (wood) stick ever produced. But they usually come in the higher flexes. If you want a lower flex stick, I suggest the Bauer One55 or One75 woodies. 87 flex, lightweight compared to other wood sticks.

A couple of guys on my team swear by the 5030. You can find them for like $30 at most places to.

the 5030 is CLASSIC. I wouldn't play with anything else. Not to mention, the aesthetics of stepping on the ice with a wood stick that looks like it was a tree two days ago is a thing of beauty.

It's been for and a half hours, and still no comment about this?

Sher-Wood PMPX 9950 is a pretty good stick, just tough to flex (105).

I tried a couple of the Reebok ones; 2K, I think, red with a black fiberglass blade; nice 85 flex, but they are pretty fragile. Cheap option to experiment with though.

I wouldn't recommend those for ice hockey, any ABS blades/fiberglass blah blah are best used for street, not ice.

I loved those sticks! Had two of them in the Modano pattern, was devastated when they broke. I've never been able to use any other wood stick effectively.
