I had the "O" stick as well, couldn't stand it. Traded it to my brother for 2 7Ks (he plays in the USHL). Not a big fan of RBK sticks. I wouldn't suggest buying it.

Its a shooters stick.. I can't find an intermediate stick so I haven't used it enough to tell you how good a deekers stick it is...

I've picked up battle-axes that've felt less blade heavy. Anyone looking to characterize a stick as a "shooter's" stick or a "deker's" stick could learn a little more about what goes into a good stick.
For the price of a 9KO, there are much better deals to be had. Not recommended.

You know. The bit where I outlined that the stick is blade heavy? That's a personal opinion.

And that's part where I say not recommended? That's a recommendation.

Thanks for coming out though.

its not a very reliable stick, my friend has broken 2 in 2 months, and he is only 5 foot 5 and 120 pounds. also if your a teen, there is no intermediate o stick which sucks. other than that he liked it and so did i

The balance isn't very good, they compensated for the gimmick that is the "O" with added weight at the blade of the stick, just doesn't feel right at all.

I'll admit that I haven't played a game with one, but I picked it up in the store and was shocked at how odd it felt. The weight seemed to be all in the blade.
Go hold a Dolomite and then hold the 9K0. I don't think there's a huge difference in actual weight, but it FEELS like there is a huge difference in weight.
Who knows, maybe it handles great out on the ice, but I didn't feel like risking $225 on it.
I am curious to see peoples' opinions though. It's kind of a mystery. Everyone knows about the 9K0, but nobody seems to have one.
