Looking for a cheap composite

I have used wooden stickes all my life, Im a fairly good player who possesses a pretty good slapshot, but after a while My amrs will start to hurt, All my friends have composites and i've tryed them and liked them. Anyway I was wondering if anyone is selling any composites? or if they have any advice on cheap composites and where to get them? or maybe even a lightweight wooden stick. Any help would be appreciated.

Depends what you mean cheap and if you want one or two piece. There's like realllly cheap like Easton Octane shafts which is $20. AIn't horrid as long as you don't take huge slapshots but sounds like you do. Some people think $80 is cheap and you could get a CCM Vector one piece on sale probably.

Honestly, I'd look into a Nike Apollo one piece, they are like $60 on sale. Pray that they got some still around cause that was a realllly good deal. They got some Bauer Vapor V one piece at around the same price. There's some Montreal Nitro sticks at prices like that too. There are lots of selections, depends what you want and how hard you want to look.

which websites? what do u mean no colors or logos or writing??

I have an octane, but I realy dislike it, and its actually not that lightweight. I was looknig on spending around 50-60. Hmmm the Nike Apollo might be the way to go.

any other suggestions?

Depending on what batch of "famous maker" sticks they are, I think they could be Synergys but saw on ModSquad that they think they're actually Bauer sticks. WinnWell sells some sticks that are these sticks with WinnWell all over them. But yeah keep checking...Hockey Giant the past few days have had awesome deals, but they were only going on for like a few hours before being changed.

Nice find! They must have updated this within the last week or so.....I'm kinda pissed, I went to their actual store in Anaheim last weekend to look at some goalie stuff. They advertised it on their site with a price and different sizing/color options.....and when I get there, they don't have anything.

The Mission L-2 combo is a relatively good deal. The L-2 is a tapered shaft, so it feels like as close as a one piece stick as you can get without actually being a fused one piece stick. They also send you two blades (which cost $50 apiece).

Ditto /\ Though those wood core/laminate sticks are pretty light.

Anyone use that Gear Hornet stick? It's the cheapest of the one piece composites. I just ordered one for inline hockey, I needed a cheaper stick so I thought I'd give it a go.

<3 my $40 Nike Apollo shaft. If you can find one, I don't think you'll be disappointed with it. Great durability, reasonably light, and very distinctive looking.

Most Gear stuff is more in line with roller hockey. But people have used it for ice. I've read reviews and couple people who have used it for ice have had ok results or so they say. $50, ain't too bad--- though it is possible to find a Bauer V or CCM Vector v80 for around that price and I'm willing to bet those are more reliable. Bauer V supposedly are built like tanks. You could probably find Montreal Nitros for that price too.

I did see a Bauer V for $60, the v80's sell for closer to $90...

I got the (Gear Hornet) stick yesterday, it was lighter than I thought feels pretty good. I'll let you all know how it holds up, though it seems well made.

Those numbers also confuse me...but I do believe Drury=Tkachuk cept Tkachuk the lie is .5 lower.

Just wondering if anyone ever used a Montreal Nitro? Looking to purchase some cheap.

I just picked up the Easton One stick for $80. It has the feel of a wood stick but is a 1 piece. I have an SL and a Stealth and I like how the One feels so far if that helps.

Heard the Easton Ones are decent, cept heavy. But can't be as heavy as wielding lumber.

I just wound up betting a Montreal Nitro off someone for $40. Waits to be seen how good is it.
