I like to go bargain hunting for shafts, and then you can interchange composite or ABS/wood blades depending on the surface. Over the years, stumbled upon a handful of lightly used $80+ shafts at Play it Again being sold for $10-20.

I go to Play It Again often, and do own a few shafts and swap out blades, but in my mind there is nothing like solid wooden one-piece stick, but you're right there are many cheap composite options as well.

That's more than I get. All I get is a warm heart and the occasional towel snap.

As a goalie, the guy I usually fear is the dude with the Sherwood woodie and a Cooper helmet.

Haha. I wish I could be that guy, but I just am not a fan of Sherwood's durability. I have a few that I take out from time to time. It is a hell of a stick to have on the point because of the slap shot it gives you, as my Koho is pretty much a sniper's stick with a Jagr curve, I can pick the corner everytime with a wrist shot, but when it comes to a slap shot it is more randomized than I like it to be. In the end though, my Sherwood sticks usually give out after a handful of games.

I think i'll keep that to myself. Haha! I'm on the Sumos which is Silver and Top Gun which is in a different Silver division. And if you've ever played the Sumos, don't worry I'm not #27.
