Battle of the $100 sticks: Bauer X:40 vs. Easton Synergy SE6

Hello all,

Figured this is a good 1st post as any. I'm in a rec league, with a mix of skill levels on every team. I'm looking to make a jump from my Sher-Wood 5030's to a composite stick, with the X:40 and SE6. Any info regarding durability, lightness balance, if one stick suits a particular shooting style, puck feel, etc. would be helpful. I've seen many reviews(mostly positive) for the X:40, but not alot for the SE6.

Thanks,

Hacker10

I have the SE6 and have been using it for about 3 months now. It is a good stick for the price point. I use an intermediate 65 flex and it has pretty good whip on my wrister. I only play once or twice a week so I can't really speak about durability, but after 3 months it is still around. Usually it can be found for around 70 bucks though so do some research before you buy.

My X:40 has held up well so far. It is the best balanced stick I've tried at the $100 price point.

With an additional $10, I found off Hockey Monkey:

Dolomite DD
RBK 7k Sickick
Synergy ST
Inno Maniac/Thunderdome

Or just dig around internet forums, Craigslist, or eBay to find a composite shaft for $50 and get a $50 blade to put in it.

This works for Americans, but the poster is Canadian. If you order off an American site in Canada you get hit with duty at the border, so you really have to order off places that ship from Canada. Canadian hockey gear websites suck, even on ebay there's not much shipping from Canada, so for the most part Canadians have to buy gear at full price from brick and mortar shops.

In that case I'd get a shaft and a cheap wood blade and save up for a composite blade when I could afford it. I found several shafts for under $100:

Easton ST (old Ultra Lite)
Warrior AK27
Reebok 8k
Warrior Dolomite (clearance)
