Stick Suggestions

Well guys, for me it's about time for a new stick. Right before tryout time is where I get mine. I have been thinking about quite a few sticks. Tell me any feedback about any of them please. Except for the Synergy SE because I had that and I loved it. Anyways, here have been some of my options so far:

Warrior AK-27 Shaft
Warrior Johnson Shaft
Synergy SE (Grip)
TPS R8
Warrior Kronik
Synergy S17


That's about it for me, any other suggestions from you guys?

The only stick my store carries right now is the S17 (it's actually a Stealth :wink As with most first run products, we've had mixed results with it. With all the r&d they put into the stick (elliptical bottom third, different bladder in the blade, moving the bonding point) it has not gotten completely rave reviews about the performance. There have also been a few durability concerns.

I personally dont like stick with Grip on them. Your hands shouldnt really be suctioned to the shaft IMO so the Grip is out of the question for me. I dont know too much about Warrior sticks but I assume they are good considering the amount of players who use them. I would stick with the Synergy non Grip stick. Synergy's have never let me down so I would go with that.

Well, I had the Warrior Dolomite and I really liked it and I haven't tried out any other Warriors since my Dolomite snapped early this year. Now I use a RBK 7K SickKick by the way. But is the Dolomite any different compared to any of the new Warrior sticks out on the market now? What about the Warrior shafts? Do they feel like a one piece? Thanks guys.

S17 has incredible performance. You get a super low and whippy kick but it doesn't reverberate throughout the whole shaft like its gonna snap. Only problem is that with the elliptical narrow tapering at the bottom I think it's alot more prone to breaking.

I think you'll find similar stick in the the SE and the dolomite both fairly good on performance and pretty good durability.

I personally would recomend Easton SE, SL or Warrior Dolomite. The Warrior Kronik also looks pretty good but no first hand experience with it.

Whats a Johnson? Never heard of it.

TPS R8 is the best. i have used TPS sticks for the past year and have had no problems with any stick i had. i used alot of different sticks but have found the R4 is a awesome stick great feel and touch on it.

Synergy SE. You can't replace the blade if you break the S17. I only bought mine because I got it at a great bargain. My shot with the SE is amazing now because I don't care if I break it. So if you're not a ***** with your stick like I am, it should be nice. Plus you can put a blade in it.

And don't think it belongs in that group...it's a mid-range shaft IIRC.
