No durability whatsoever. The first batch that was sold were all breaking very easily right above the heel. They then changed the manufacturing process to supposedly make them more durable, but that didn't work either. These things have broken just deflecting soft passes, with very mild slashes to the shinpads, and of course with heavy shooting. A lot of vendors are actually warning people NOT to buy them.

The first one we had broke 10 minutes into the first practice on a deflected pass. The second "improved" one didn't last more than one game. Easton refused to replace the second one, even though the actual on-ice usage time was less than a few hours, because they only replace them once.

I'd stay away from them. They are very light, but are fragile like fine crystal, and Easton won't stand behind them.

Why you bumping this? The sticks barely been out a month and shops are probably just starting to get them in. You can't expect people to offer any real evidence of durability until they use them for a few months.

It doesn't bother me, it just doesn't make much sense.

My buddy got 2 brand new S17s and broke the 1st in his first game (some kid slashed him) and broke the 2nd one 3 games later. Not that i was considering buying it since its so expensive but im gonna make a note to stay away from the S17.

I've been using Easton sticks my whole career and haven't broken more than 2... I just broke my Synergy after 2 seasons of play with it and bought 2 S17s, I haven't played with them yet so I certainly hope they aren't as fragile as you guys are saying. If you're saying they are "as fragile as easton is typically" than I think I'll be fine.

I've had an Easton Synergy 350 for almost 2 years...and the blade cracked after a season...some fat guy stood on the blade but the shaft still looks and feels great...and is still holding up!
