for those of you with a one95, I have the blade which I really like and have the opportunity to pick the shaft up for $85 on sale at a shop near my house back home. I have a day to decide if I want it or not. worth it?

I went to my local hockey store today to buy a one95....but they dont sell them anymore. The guy said one100 is the replacement and is pretty much the same thing as the one95. Now, this wouldnt be a problem, if the price for the newer (yet identical) model wasnt 45 bucks more

Sherwood 5030 Composite.

I've also got a couple Easton Magnum 80 flex shafts I really like, but haven't found a decent curve for em yet.

If you use standard shafts, that's not a bad deal.

I've been really happy with my Battleaxe BX10. Insane release on it. I've got a few guys on my team who can shoot the puck fantastic and they all come up to me after warmups and rave about my shot...didn't before I got this thing. The Drury curve might play a part though

I have a new favorite the Winnwell pro480 SMU stick from Crappy tire, or the Winnwell GX8 (same stick)

Can't say enough good about it at this point.

I have been using an SE16 but I got a one95 today for Christmas. Apparently it was next to impossible to find.

Tell me about it.

Now I can't even find any SE16s to replaced my old one. I'm ripping shots and saucers right now, so it's going to break pretty soon. That's how my luck is with sticks.

Guess I'll have to settle on the Total One. Anyone know the heir apparent for the SE16?

CCM U+07 ovechkin curve 85 flex best stick ive ever used. I love the curve perfect for shooting when you want but i can still use it for accurate passing.

HG still has some SE16's left; dependent upon what flex, curve and dexterity you need.

The heir apparent for the SE16 is the EQ50.

I'd like to get some opinions on the EQ50. I think the weight idea is genious but how much would putting an extension in effect the balance? Watching a few videos of this stick I really want to try it out.

Thanks.

Glad I got that One95 shaft when I could. Sounds like they're getting hard to find.

For the most part the EQ50 is the se16 to a T, just a little more naked, which shaves off a few grams in paint. IMO the SE16 had a much nicer look anyway. The EQ50 has basically the same features as the SE16, only difference is that they are visible from the outside of the stick. The FWT in the blade is visible instead of being painted over, and the FWT at the top can now be adjusted manually in the endplug. The lack of a total paint job also makes the kevlar visible.

Its a very good stick, but not worth buying if you can find an SE16 on clearance for the same price. The difference between the two sticks besides release year, and paint jobs (which is worth more on the market than technology by a wide margin) is minimal if any. But if youre worried about losing the feel of your SE when getting an EQ, dont be, they should feel identical.

I've used the X:60 Kane pattern exclusively for a year now. I love how the shaft flexes, and I'm a fan of the curve as well.

I've always been fascinated with toe curves though, and a few days ago I used my buddy's stick with a Gionta pattern during a pick up game. I loved it.

Does anybody know if a Warrior Gionta would fit in a Bauer X:60 shaft? Seems like it would be a dream come true.

My favorite stick to date is my Bauer One95 with a 102 flex P91a curve. Bomb of a slapshot and accurate passes with it. Very durable and great feel to it.

I was fortunate enough to get a S19 pro-stock with an Ovi curve on it. Getting used to it but hesitating to do so because once it breaks, i wont be able to find another...

that was my reaction when i first got it. if i sweep the stick and dont follow through on my shot, the puck flings hard and flat accurately. Hit the crossbar from the blue line almost on demand...

messes with mechanics of shooting which i dont like, but a hell of a stick once accustomed to the wild curve.

Ive gone through many sticks but my favorites ones are definitely the original synergy or the first Stealth grip.

After using an open faced curve for a while, I tried a Modano and a Lindros and can't get nearly as much velocity on my wrist/snap shots. With closed blades I used to sweep the puck and kind of fling it off the toe, but with the open blades I cup the puck and can load the shot more and there's much more velocity. So from here on out it's likely Drury or Sakic curves for me.

I am kind of curious to try an Ovi Pro because I would like to see what a Drury with a little toe kink would do.

My favorite sticks I own are my RBK 10k Cody Bass pro stock. Stick is nice and light and really durable, awesome stick.

But I just got a Bauer x:60 LE P92 77 Flex on sale. I just loved the look of it and I wanted to try a whippier flex on a stick since most of my sticks are 85-100 flex. Just had my first stick and puck session with it today and I like it alot so far! Will be playing my first game with it tomorrow, Should be good hopefully.

S17 in a Sakic curve, 85 flex. Best stick I've ever used, but they last a couple of months before the blade goes soft. Only time I broke an S17 was when I blocked a shot with the shaft. Easton's are great but the blades wear out quick, so I consider them a bad purchase if you're using one for the long haul.

Recently grabbed a Warrior Dolomite pro-stock Langenbrunner. Quickly becoming a big fan of Dolo's. Hopefully the retail Dolo's are comparable to the pro-stocks as I would love to try one in a Draper curve and lower flex (similar to Easton's Sakic).

Strange thing though...I noticed Langenbrunners newer gear is tagged as "LAGS". My shaft actually says "Langenbrunner", so I'm not too sure if it's an old pro-stock return or something else. It was listed on HockeyMonkey as a pro-stock, and the bottom side of the shaft says "PRO-STOCK NO WARRANTY". Curve is very similar to a Easton Sakic but with a more square toe.

Reebok 4k and 5k's are favorite sticks in the 50-70$ range. I have a Spezza curve and a Datsyuk curve, both a pretty similar. I like big curves that are going to be good for wrist shots. Love the sticks, good feel for the puck and very durable.

I have no interest paying more than that for something that frankly isn't going to make me much better and that is going to break quickly.
