ABS Blade...that's all you need. Whether you get a wooden stick or a shaft/blade combo make sure the blade is made of ABS plastic. Easton makes a decent stick that's only about 15 bucks. I think it's called "ultra abs" or something.
Wooden blades will wear out really fast and start chipping on the bottom for road hockey, ABS just wears away, no chipping.
Yup, I went through at least 3 wood blades before I tried out the ABS P2 Jokinen. It's slowly wearing down after like 2 years now but pieces of the blade will never chip off or break. Highly recommended for ball/road hockey because of its incredible durability.
easton yzerman z abs. it is incredibly durable and lasts for months on my friend's very rough street (even after countless slappers). it is a wood/abs hybrid (predominantly abs) and has ceased to amaze me. i recently got a synergy II tapered shaft and put a ccm vector v5.0 tapered blade on it and it seems to be working very well. i highly recommend the easton yzerman z abs if you have a traditional shaft. if not the ccm vector v5.0 is the way to go. if you prefer a forsberg curve, try the easton x abs blade which i have yet to try but i believe it's the same build. hope this helps.
I suggest you go with a shaft and blade combo. I would look into getting a cheap shaft as well unless you plan on using your ice shaft (if you have one). The Easton Octane is a great and cheap (20 bucks) shaft with decent performance. If you haven't already, read my post above and that should help you out.
