Closest Composite Stick to Sherwood Coffey 5.50?

All-

I have been playing with Sherwood PP77 Coffey 5.50 with an 85 flex for years, but want to move it up to a reasonably priced (<=$100) composite stick. Can anyone make a recommendation?

Thanks.

Why not try a Sherwood 5030 Composite stick. It sells for under $100 at most places.
it has a faux wood finish and looks pretty convincing. from what ive heard its a pretty decent stick for that price. It would be available in the same patterns and flex you like i assume.

Agreed. Try the Sherwood 1 pieces. I have 1 but it's too heavy for me. If it was lighter I would use it because of the Coffey curve.

Ha, thats a good one... I'm changing sticks because I want to try something lighter.

I've been playing with one for the last couple weeks and the 5030CC isn't that heavy. It's a nice stick, it isn't top end light, but it's not like the woody is heavy. Pick one up if you haven't felt one before.

If your budget is the 100 doller range you arent going to be getting the lightest sticks out there. if Lightweight is your thing then you're gonna have to up your price range.

the reason i suggested that stick is due to the fact that it has the same patterns, flexes, and price as you specified.

PP77 is just another name for the Coffey curve, but I'm guessing you're using the pmp5030. Try out Sher-Wood's RM9. It shouldn't cost more than $120, I think it's the best stick in that range.

The only downside to the RM9 is that it doesn't come in a Coffey curve, neither does the RM8. The RM7 does come in a Coffey curve and can easily be found for less than $100.

if a person loves the coffey curve or the pp77 curve, are there any other curves out there right now that are pretty close to what that curve is, meaning the closed big banana curve?

Hockeymonkey has the RM8 in the Coffey curve in both 85 and 95 flex for either hand. For $110 it's a very good stick and fairly light

You can grab a TPS R8 for roughly hundred. The Afino blade is 3/4" mid center open rounded toe. Dont know the specifics of the Coffey but its a pretty nice curve.
