Hockey world Barrell sticks?

My wife just gave me a call letting me know my new hockey sticks just came in she said they are franklin Wood Sticks they are the same just with different blades and one is a round toe and the other is a squared toe. I figured it's was a good deal cause i'm playing outside so $15 a stick aren't bad. Wonderin if anybody has had any experience with a franklin stick i always figured they were cheap or coarse they were only $15.

where do you buy Christian sticks from I've been looking for them on the internet but I can't find them I live in Georgia so it's not like I can just run to the a hockey shop. It's 2 Franklin 6070 sticks they are extrmely light and extremely long I am 5"11 and with my skates off they come up to my eyes. One stick has the Ron Francis curve and the other has Peter Straka curve one is a rounded toe and the other is a squared toe. My other stick is a CCM Vector 01 wood stick. The Franklin stick actually seems lighter and better built got them for $15 a piece and the original sale price i found onthe internet was $65.

Sounds like a decent stick and you can't really go wrong for 15$. I know Christian has some sticks on there website at http://www.cbhockey.com/ but i don't know where else online. I live in MN so there's a hockey shop every 10-15 miles lol.

Barrel sticks almost always suck...cheap, dried out wood sticks that are about twice as heavy as a decent one piece.
