Ball Hockey Stick

So whats a good entry level composite stick thats lightweight not to expensive but would be decent for ball hockye on hardwood floor.

I was thinking of the vapour X:40 but anything else i should look into?

BALL hockey? save your money and go for a wood stick, try the Nike Bauer One55, it's pretty light for a woodie

I love the old standard Sher-Wood PMP 5030 wood stick. Great feel and super light for a wood stick and costs $25-30. Easton also makes a nice wood stick with an ABS blade for around $20-25. It's a bit heavier but still a nice stick.

To be honest with you, the only noticeable difference between using any good wood stick and any 'light' OPS is just that... the weight. In ball hockey, seldom do you benefit from the features of a stick, such as kickpoint, better puck feel etc.

If you have the money and care about weight, then I wouldn't advise the Easton ABS stick, its good for street hockey, but kinda heavy too like 700g. Instead, the X:40 was a great ice hockey stick for me at $100, but then again, I still advise you to go the wood route and if you have money left over for ball hockey, I suggest a nice breatheable pair of gloves

But if you do want something advanced, get yourself a Bauer One95 non-tapered shaft. You can find them for very reasonable prices, and since they are not tapered you can easily find replacement blades for them. Plus they're feather light.

I play ball and roller hockey weekly and this is the way to go. I had to go this route out of necessity because I play on an outdoor rink. But the ABS blade is great for ball hockey since it's heavier, gives you a nicer feel than when I tried using a composite OPS.

If you do go with a wood blade, try the Reebok 2k. It's not the lightest stick, but it's very durable.

Try an old KOHO Revolution - the yellow Jagr one. It's a good comp' stick to begin with, then once you have the feel for the game (ball, wooden floor, shooting, ect...) you can upgrade to something better and more to your taste.
