Back Up Stick

Kind of have dilemma here... I can't use wood sticks, and need a back up stick since I'm going to start playing inline hockey competitively again.... Didn't want to spend a lot of money on a black up stick since it won't get used much but I guess I don't have any other options...

I have a 6 year old Easton Ultralite and love it... But it looks like they changed the appearance of the stick drastically since I last bought one...

Current one is an atrocious white:

Slightly more tolerable is the Grip version:

Anyone ever used this shaft before, or one similar to it??? Do people generally like the extra feel/grip that it provides???

I'm the kind of guy who finds something that works and sticks with it... I'm looking to buy another one...

buy a Synergy 300/350(grip), light for a price point, decent feel, and very cheap.
Warrior Royale would be a decent back-up too.

Problem is that I don't have a hockey shop near me where I can actually sample these sticks so I'm reluctant to order a shaft I've never seen/felt before on a whim...

I use the Ultra Lite Grip as a stick for playing outside. I bought it used but in great condition for $35. Its really not any different from the older Ultra Lights. Its a great stick. If you like the old one, i would higly suggest gettin the new one.

I love my white UL! I don't think there's too much difference except for the lack or clear coating on the new ones which leads to more paint chips and some say 'tinny' feel. I like it just the same though....
