Composite Goal Sticks

My last year of officially organized hockey before I hit the true beer leagues (I'm 20 - this is still organized 18-20 although it's like a beer league in terms of skill level and dedication, but with full contact). I've had a lot of sticks over the years and I gradually shifted over to the composite goal sticks and have become accustomed. I've had a lot of good experience with the Nike Bauer sticks, but their durability has been suspect. I've gone through 4 and all except for one, flat out just snapped either on the shaft or the blade. I bought a new Ryan Miller curve (never again!) RBK 11k stick that I use now, and I absolutely hate it. Can barely get the puck off the ice unless I shovel it, and the paddle lie feels kinda weird on ice. Its also a year old and wearing down (the outer layer is peeling off, and some glue inside is loose and rolls up and down the stick whenever I move it)...

Can anyone recommend any composite goal sticks? Also, has anyone tried any Vaughn composite sticks?

Ive had my X60 for over 2 years. I got it as a hand me down used at the NCAA D1 level, and I used it to play college club. Its on its last leg though. Want to find me some pro authentic Luongo curves. Best curve out there

Ive been using the TPS Response sticks for a while. They are a bit expensive, but they are durable and extremely light. They tend to give up a bit bigger rebounds, but other than that they are great. Also great for puck handling
