I recently picked up one of Hull's Mission M-2 shafts (std.) when he used them for a bit with Detroit in '04. Paired it with an AK27 blade in a Vanek curve LOL

The flex point on that intermediate shaft (65 flex) is actually on the lower third of the stick, which I imagine was engineered there for his one-timers. Not a low kick shaft however.

I have one in my dads attic I was considering pulling out of retirement recently haha.

For me, all the old TPS sticks. I wish I would have bought more of them while they were around. Currently I'm only mildly satisfied with anything on the market. I guess I might buy another couple RSII's before they disappear like the S19 did.

Hands down the Easton Stealth CNT. Puck feel, shot velocity, everything really, was perfect on that stick. I have one left that I'm going to preserve for the time being and is a Heatley curve 85 flex grip.

HM's to the og Easton Synergy (Forsberg 65), Bauer One95 (Backstrom 77), og Easton Stealth (Forsberg 65), and Easton se16 (Sakic 75).

The original Synergy(silver) or synergy grip(yellow) in the Sakic pattern.

One of the earlier composite sticks when they became available to the market, they were super light, awesome performance AND they lasted ages!

Seems like they are made to break now so that you buy more.

Definitely a Z-Bubble shaft. I remember those things were the coolest when I was younger.

I also had a Synergy Grip that I miss dearly. Got a decent amount of time out of one with a Lidstrom pattern I believe.

Right now I own an RBZ and a 20k, but I will never forget that black, white and red 7k. I think I had 5 or 6 of them.

Oh the old 7k's were AWESOME. I found one that had been converted into a tapered shaft and the amount of pop on that stick was unreal, up there with the best sticks I've ever used.

The Mission M-1. I had a couple L-2's. Not bad but they torqued to crap on me.

We had a couple guys on our team with those neon orange Missions. Man those things were awful and hideous.

Also I'll never forget one of the last wooden sticks I used. It was called a Mission Woody Glass. I think it had a Darcy Tucker curve. It was like a clear fibreglass stick with either green or blue on it. I loved it!!

haha I have three 7ks in my room that I've never used or taped. I did really like the stick. I got more pop out of them than SLs.

I still have one that I use for outdoor inline. I hate that it's a 100 flex though.

I miss those Bauer Vapor XXX-lite sticks. They broke like crazy, but I never had a stick with better feel than that. The X60 is pretty good, as was the XXXX, but that XXX-lite was awesome to me. I really liked the old bauer vapor XXs too.

The original synergy grip (gold) Modano curve was one of the best sticks I ever used, as well. Perhaps it was because I was coming from a shaft/wood blade or Louisville Tri-Core with random blades, but that synergy grip was so cool when they first came out.

Easton Classic woodie. Perfect flex, just about as light as a composite. Yet another stick that I wish I had bought up and had a stockpile.

My two fab sticks are the ones I used in peewee which are the two retro sticks in nhl 13 - the red Titan and the Sherwood pmp - ballin - I would buy them again today if I could even though they weighed about 5-10lbs each

Pulled some old sticks out of the attic, the flex on my Titan TSM8 is insane! Too bad the blade is shot from playing in the drive way for so many years growing up.

CCM Vector 10.0 in a Lecavalier curve was an absolute gem. The best stick I have ever used. Had so much pop and just a great overall feel to the stick. I love how it had the contoured edges that made it feel great. Also the reebok 7k sickkick was also a gem. Those two sticks were my go to sticks in juniors and I havent yet found a stick that matches their performance.

OG Synergy with a Drury curve. Never met another soul who used the Drury curve and no one on my team back in the day could seem to figure out how to shoot the damn thing. Man I miss that stick.

Koho 590 for goalie sticks, the old-school cheap Koho Revolution for player sticks. The bright yellow one with the red writing, I think it was a Jagr curve. Thing was a beauty.
