No. 2 piece sticks are a waste of money.

You know how much he is paying for it?

I got mine on sale and really like it so far. I'm a tapered shaft guy in general, but this is one of the nicer ones. I like it better than my Synthesis and Synergy II shaft, would likely place it ahead of my Inno/Dolo tapered shafts, but it's still behind the R2 Xn10 in my opinion. I like the RBK grip and the handle shape. Decent kick, but not incredible.

no no no, let's not argue just yet! Let's wait for his words of wisdom!


colton, personally I'm not a fan of rbk sticks(although i like the sickick). It's a good deal but I wouldn't buy a stick I didn't try out first.

(just gotta throw this out there) You do know that Crosby uses a 2-piece stick right?





I couldn't help that one, I just couldn't wait anymore!

i got a 6k one piece from sportchek and loved it. it was 119.99. pretty sure the two piece wouldn't be a whole lot different.

I've used the tapered rbk 6k senior shaft (mid flex) with a synergy II blade for about 2 seasons now.
Replaced the blade once - and the Shaft is a bit chipped up now, but it's lasted longer then I'd hoped for orginally - love the stick / blade combo.

I'm heading to the states soon, and will be looking for a new shaft - maybe the 6k again depending on what deals I find.

Think Crosby87 knows most one piece sticks aren't really one piece?

I'm gonna go out on a limb and say no.

I'm gonna raise you limb and see you with my right arm.
I'm betting that he doesn't even pay for his sticks out of his own pocket.
