Picked this stick up last week as an impulse buy at a local rink. It has pretty decent weight and balance. Not blade heavy at all as I would expect for its price point ($99). I think this could be the best stick under $100 your going to find (excluding clearance and closeouts obviously). The mid kick took a while for me to get the hang of but I managed to rip a two wristers from inside the circles to the far corner over the glove during pickup and im normally a garbage goal guy. Using Datsyuk curve.
I cut 2 inches off and it is very stiff for 85 flex. No luck with slappers but I don't normally take them any way. Im only playing about once a week and no league games so I dont expect durability to be an issue for me.
From what I saw/felt in the store I think it's the best sub-$100 non-clearance stick ever. The balance is fantastic. Weight is obviously up there and I don't expect much in terms of kick or feel but the two things you want out of a $100 twig, durability and non feeling like a battle axe, are there.
