Blade toughness

I have a brand new s19 and the blade is starting to become weak already.

Is there any good sticks with a tough blade that wont wear away quickly?

I had the same problems with S17's. It's why I moved away from Easton.

I had a pro-stock Warrior Dolomite DD that played very much like a retail. I used the stick for a year and the blade stayed rock solid. In fact, the stick performed no different up until it snapped at the shaft. Very quality stick, but not sure if the retail will reflect the same quality 100%.

Easton's ST's are supposedly built like tanks. My buddy has an ST blade on his RBK shaft and the thing is thick as hell.

Always been afraid to buy a pro-stock as they supposedly break much easier than retail.

I've never had any problem with the blades weakening on my S19s, nor have any of my teammates who use this stick. Sure you just didn't get a bad stick?

I'm going to echo the ST as well and add that unless they are of the same batch, one pro stock Dolomite DD blade might not be the same as another; simply due to the fact that they are pro stock. Buyer beware.

Venturing away from the ST, you could give the CCM CS (Crazy Strong) a shot as well or the T1 as another poster mentioned. If you can find some Easton CNTs they're built really tough and probably the best performing of the ST and CS.
