Never before asked question (sticks)

Hi everyone, K so ive used lots of sticks since i began playing anddifferent brands too.

easton, mission, bauer, but not reebok....warrior, tps...it goes on.

But with recent technology theres more choices based on preference. That goes to say some sticks are more suited for others just by their make.

K so heres the question, i have relatively smaller hands. (do not insert penis joke). Honestly, it gets annoying some makes have a more square shaft and its harder to hold.

I like to candy cane the stick, and im 5'8 210 lbs.... dw..im good. And honestly lets forget about skills, but which make should i gett?

I know for a fact vaporx60 has a more rounded shaft and its not as thick either. Thanks guys

sherwood nexon also has a smaller shaft profile as does the miken razor z9.
personally, although i prefer smaller, more rounded shafts, i've found that i can adapt to most shaft shapes and that flex and kick profile are much more important for me.

haha sorry but when someone named thedonger says this i giggle like an immature child


that being said do not get the easton mako or stealth, both have larger shafts, the warrior evo has a slightly rounded but also bigger shaft
