Stealth S11 Question

I just recently snapped my Synergy SL in half and I can't seem to find a new one with the right pattern and flex (LH Forsberg 85). So I've been looking at the Stealth S11 and can't figure out how heavy it is. The SL's are 425 grams, and I don't want anything heavier than that. Does anyone know how heavy the Easton Stealth S11 grip is?

I bought a new warrior shaft the other day and i just happen to look and feel them at the store and they are light weight just like most stealths and i know the weight of a stealth is like 395 grams so i think it will be same if not lighter.

Guy has 3 available for 105 each. They are the ST though (ST are much more stronger then the SL's, won't break as easy)

My stick, the Gaborik curve isnt on the market anymore, but i got a bunch from ebay..for a lot cheaper then I was paying the the store.

They do not weigh any where near 395 grams. The S11 is a pricepoint one piece stick, probably weighing in somwhere around 465-485 grams. It's not worth buying a OPS unless you go high end. High end wood > Pricepoint OPS in my experience. The Stealth S17 is Eastons newest high end OPS, and will weigh in around 400ish grams. Go with that, it wont be much more than you paid for your SL. Most play it again sports sell S17 for 200.

What are you basing this off of?

Best suggestion to Billy_Shoe is to go check one out. Since it's a brand new model. Unless you work in a shop or own one, you don't really know how good or bad it really is.

Plus, there are SL's all over the net for sale at discount prices.

Yeah, the '08 Eastons have a several Stealth models now. As the previous poster noted, there's a price point Stealth that has the ellipse feature but with cheaper material.

Easton renamed the Z-Bubble and Ultra Lite shafts as well--off the top of my head, they are now the Stealth S15 and Synergy ST shafts. Same shaft, new paint job, charge $20 more =P

As to the original poster, I imagine the S11 will be heavier than the SL. But definitely check it out....weight is one thing, but it might be balanced enough to the point where you don't notice. Although if it's anything like the past Easton price point sticks, you will probably notice.

How about Easton's 2008 product catalog available at modsquadhockey.com...? When it comes to hockey equipment, I know my ****. And if I don't, I go there for the answers.

STAY AWAY FROM THE S17!

I work at a proshop and the S17 might be the worst one piece ever. It breaks constantly and all people do is complain about it. Easton actually sent us a letter apologizing for the stick and they also said they are working on the problems. Similar things happened when the Easton SL first came out, but that wasn't nearly as bad as the S17.

Back to the S11. It's still very new so I haven't heard much commentry on it. It has a pretty good feel to it and it seems like it has some durability. Thats all I can really say at the moment, sorry.

The stick I reccomend when it comes to Easton sticks is the SE. Good balance, light, won't break during your first game, and it should be going down in prices very soon if not already. I would search for that stick to be honest. I'm sure you will find a few deals on it. Would also go with the Easton ST before any of the Stealths.

Good luck hope I could help.

Yeah, I'm not going to beef on the S17...I've got a cannon from the point with it and it's stood up for 4 months now.

Take a look, you'll notice I'm a member there as well and I've seen the 08 catalog. JR lists the S11 as a down spec'd S17....lacks the TORX technology used on in the S17.

I agree that price points are usually pretty crappy, but there have been some decent ones....Sher-wood's RM9. Price wise it may fall into that category, but that doesn't necessarily mean it's a crap product.

Well if you want to try it out, feel free. I was trying to get my point across that there is no way this will weigh in anywhere near 395 grams, as pricepoints are usually closer to 500.
