New Stick and Off Ice Shooting Board Questions

So here is the deal, I'm looking into getting a good, affordable composite stick.

I found this: http://www.hockeygiant.com/nbhaplostkgrosr.html
Huge price cut. It is also in the curve I am very used to.

Isn't the Apollo just a repainted One50? Or was it a One70? Is it worth the price? I'm currently using a One40 (Gagne) and One60 (Naslund) depending on situations and love the sticks. What do you think?

And lastly, is there a good deal on an off ice training board? Like the artificial ice surfaces that I could put on the ground and shoot off of it as if it were ice. Or is there a really cheap alternative? Like a kind of poster board or something.

If you wanna spend just a bit more than your nike apollo, here is a mission hex-1, much better stick. Depends on your budget though.

It is just a one50 I do believe...but, they weigh as much and would perform as well as your one40. Low end composites are pretty crappy when you've had the the chance to use something nicer. one40 isn't a bad stick though, and your probably better off sticking to nicer woodies or getting something on closeout like that Hex-1 mentioned above.

You don't need to blow a buncha money to get a board...go to Home Depot or Lowe's and get a big sheet of whiteboard or plexiglass. I think it's like called acrylic coated board or something.

** Acrylic plastic sheets or HDPE is what it's called.

Agreed. Couple of bucks won't hurt you.
