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.
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.
