Still to this day love the Sherwood 5030.

Also like the Montreal (now Frontier) wood sticks.

Nothing quite like a heavy point shot from the woods.

I don't mind some of the heavier TPS glass sticks too.

Sherwood 5030 Coffey curve.

Easton Classic intermediate (70 flex) this last summer and loved it. Snapped after the normal lifespan for a woodie and it now appears they don't make em anymore.

I believe the Easton SY50 is the same as the Easton Classic, just way uglier. Those Easton woodies are horribly heavy.

CCM groovelite is the best hockey stick ever made. Too bad there's not much of a market for wood sticks anymore

I'm using a pair of Sher-Wood 5030's. One is a generic curve that I like, while the other is a Ryan curve that for some reason I suck at using. On top of that, both seem to be a bit too stiff(rated 85, with an inch cut off the end)...

I tried a 9950 at ProHockeyLife yesterday that was rated 105 flex, but seem to flex a lot easier than my 5030...odd.

Probably because it's longer.

I bought a 7000 once because it felt whippier than the 5030, but once I cut it down a few inches, it became stiff as a 2x4.

I choked up on the end to where it would be if I cut the stick down...still seemed to flex more.

Unless I'm totally out to lunch, which is possible.

Well the 9950 is for sure stiffer. It's got fiberglass and carbon laminate to stiffen up the stick. You can give it a shot, but I think once you take the hacksaw to it she'll be quite rigid. Only guy I know who uses that stick is my uncle, who played at a pretty high level and then became a champion bodybuilder. He's got a good 6" and 100 pounds on me :p

Switched to cheaper composites a few years back, but I use a Koho Revolution 2200 wood stick as a back up stick.
Not sure if they are made anymore; no flex was written on sticks back then, but i would guess it's about an 85.

Was the closest thing i could find to the old Titan sticks (which I used for many years) at the time.

Found a Sportchek that had a few today. Didn't seem any heavier than my 5030s. Intermediate, mind you.
