I changed the title to make it easier to figure out.

I really wanted to try a Stealth CNT.

Easton Stealth SL Gaborik curve, shiny silver with blue at the bottom. Easily the best stick I've ever used, my wrist shot was electric but damn that stick would break if you looked at it wrong. I had the chance to buy them in bulk when they discontinued them and I regret not buying what they had.

From today? I shot with a v9 the other day, that'll be it.

Previous sticks? Even though it's "back" as the one.9, the one95 is still amazing.

Easton Magnum shafts. Had the perfect flex at 80, and was inexpensive at like $30/$40. I'm kicking myself for not stocking up when I could have and known that I should have stocked up. Now the only shafts out there are $90 & up.

Always loved my old Koho 550 goalie sticks.

For player stick my favorite all time is still the V10. I still have one, but it's so used it's like trying to shoot the puck with a wet noodle.

When I was a kid, Koho used to make this blue stick with red and white lettering and that's the stick I learned to shoot with. I think it was made out of fibreglass. Anyhow, I wish I had it for old times sake.

Branches Double Trouble Shaft. It was a carbon/kevlar shaft rounded at the top, square at the bottom. Nice balance, great puck feel, and very durable while still relitively light.

Someone stole my car with that stick in it... By the time I could afford to buy another one, those things had disappeared. I've been searching ebay for years with no luck. Oh well, might not even be as good as I remember now.

Vanek pattern was still the Weight pattern when the Dolo came out, but I agree. That pattern is my all-time favorite retail offering and the original Dolomite rocked my world. Too bad they were out for almost two years before I could afford one.

Probably more than anything, I wish I would have hoarded a bunch of Weight/Vanek Dolomite blades. Had to have customs made to get anything remotely close.

The Vanek pattern was my favorite and I don't know why they discontinued it.

Oh well, I moved on the the Bobby Ryan pattern.

I had three of them back in the day, I also had the silver/black Stealth, too. My fav discontinued stick would have to be the SE16 or S19.

I had a Warrior Mac Daddy that I loved. It was just the lightest thing ever and had amazing feel. Unfortunately I think they made it too light and they broke too easily and they discontinued them. I'm happy with my Dolo Spyne with Nipple Grip now but I wish they had just solved the issues with the Mac Daddy.

I had a TPS Rubber shaft, bought on clearance for $20. One of the dumbest purchases ever. It was XX-Stiff, I'm 5'7, do the math...

It was a weird coating though, actual rubber. Not like anything else I've tried. I bet it would just destroy gloves.

Easton Gaborik. Stopped making them about 5 years ago, I was lucky to find some guy on Ebay selling 10 new sticks of them as a group and a snatched them up right away, probably saved about 60% on what they would normally cost. I think im up to my last one though

Waaaaaay back in the day I loved the Louisville Genesis. Carbon shaft wrapped in cherry. I picked up the ash version not too long ago. Still use it occasionally.
