Stick Suggestions

My Bauer Composite 2-piece broke yesterday.

I need suggestions, I'm not sure what to get. I have been looking at Si-Core's, but i don't like the feel of Easton's anymore. I love Bauer, but my local proshop doesn't carry them

I've looked at TPS...but can't get a good shot with the Louisville Rubber shaft.

Suggestions

You can't get Bauer
You don't like Easton
Get Vector. It's my second favorite, after the Bauer Vapor XX. Vector V 110 or 120, depending if you like grip or not.
TPS looks good, the guy at the store where i go, showed me the lightest stick i ever see. It was a TPS. Don't remember which one though.

I have a Stealth and im loving it but if you dont like Easton I would suggest a Fury stick... My friend has one and he says he prefers it over his stealth... Its Keith Primeaus own brand of stick.

Synergy SL. Wait 2 more days. Any of the new synergies, the ST, or SL.

But I don't like any of easton's curves. I just got a V130 vector and like it, but I love Vapor XX's the most even though the durability sucks. I am using a cracked Vapor XX in games and I still love it. Not cracked bad, but damaged a bit.

I hate stealths. I have one and it is sitting in my room and not being used at all.
The original ones were alright, but the remade ones or the second batch blows despite better durability. IMO. I can't stand the weight of the stealth. I like the Vector 130 cuz it's balanced better IMO.

I love my Mission M-1 as well. You can get it online for $99 plus shipping from several places.

I just got hooked up with a Synergy SL Grip over the weekend, but I haven't had a chance to use it. I'm debating whether or not to resell it and make $100 profit for doing nothing.

There are several places online that are trying to get rid of their existing Synergys because the new models for each company is coming out in the next two months. If you can be patient, I'm sure there'll be some great deals to be had.

Christian is back in business and will have a custom curve/blade option (much like Branches tried to do), they are a company/family worth supporting.

Thanks guys! I may just go to another hockey store and get a Bauer Vapour XXX. Someone metioned if I can wait 2 more days for the new Easton SL. I just don't like Easton's shafts anymore, to boxy, but I love their Yzerman pattern. I'm probably get a new stick over the weekend so they should have the new eastons out. i'll check it out.

I like the feel of the Mission shaft, it's not as boxy as the Eastons. Easton no longer makes the Yzerman curve, but their new Gaborik pattern is nearly identical.

It looks like my window to sell my SL grip and make profit has closed........nuts.

If you don't like Eastons, try a TPS XN-10. Very light and great balance. I have a RH, whip flex, Brendl pattern and absolutely love it!

Anyone know when the ST and SL come out. I heard they have new shaft designs, maybe they won't be as boxy.

I can't wait to use it tomorrow t practice. and it worse comes to worse i'll buy the XXX next month when it hits shelves in Pittsburgh

You will be playing with other people right?? Sticks snap a helluva lot more from being landed on/stepped on than they do from shots.

Isn't playing with other people a given? LOL. I had my Bauer Tri-flex Gold for 3 years before someone landed on top of me and snapped it in half. I don't usually end up in high traffic situations, i'm more of a sniper, i'll just blow past people.

anyway talking to a guy at the store he snapped 4 in a month from taking shots, however he was more like 5'9 190lbs. i'm still not that worried about it.

$140 for an SL GRIP?!!?!?!?!?!!?!? Holy ****, hook me up with where you found that...the MSRP I believe is $160, so most places will sell them for $175....

Jr. were $139 I would guess that Int would be $149 and Sr $159 give them a call though

Yes! My shot got faster, and it is easier to pick the corner IMO.
