Looking for the right stick

I was using a missing fuel Z10 85 flex with the Hossa curve and was having trouble passing with it and then it broke.

I am now using a wooden TPS stick that is a stiff flex with the Sundin curve and like it. I am wearing out the tape almost to the spot where the stick/blade meet.

I am 6ft tall 145, and want to know what is a good composite stick for me

what is a blade similar to the Sundin(in curve and what is its lie so i can change it) blade and what do i need to do to eliminate to wearing of the blade near the heal?

It's a mid curve, deep, neutral face, and a 5 lie, which is as low as you'll find. The fact that you're wearing at the heel on that probably means you need to shorten your stick. A stick that's too long also helps explain why you were having trouble catching passes.


Oh, and if you try to ignore the advice and find a a warrior in a 4 lie, be warned that a warrior 4 lie is the same as a 5 in other brands, and a warrior 5 is a 5.5.
Cut your stick down, play with it for a little bit, then tell us how the curve is working for you. It can feel very different when the length of the stick or the lie is changed.
