Hey guys, I'm looking for a new composite stick in the $50-$80 range (CDN)
With great feel for the puck and is very light, durability isnt a problem, as long as it doesnt break TOO easily

Thanks in advance

Try a two piece setup with a closeout tapered shaft. Probably going to get you around $120 or a little more, but it's the cheapest you're going to get a setup like you want.

Even dirt cheap closeout sticks of the type you want are more then that.

Edit: Never mind. Canadian dollars? You're nowhere close to even a decent 2 piece setup. Get a woodie, it's about the only thing in your price range.

Perani's in Windsor, ON has Inno MegaLyte for $79 CDN. Good stick, light weight, decent selection of patterns. It was a great stick, clone and repaint of a higher end model I think.... Unfortunately - frustration got the best of me, and I introduced it to Mr. Crossbar. Mr. Crossbar won.

I don't know anything about Canadian prices, but you can find some decent Nike Bauer sticks on sale for as low as $40 American, so there must be something for you Canadians.

Look into the Nike Bauer Vapor XVI, XX and XXV. I used to love my XVI before I upgraded to a Supreme One95.

The original poster stated he wanted to spend $50-$80 only Canadian.

The only suggestion I have is a mid priced shaft like a bauer Supreme One55 and buying a wood blade for cheaps if they have any clearanced or sells for about $20 or so. They do have the One55 blade that is a composite but it is the cheaper one that is not very durable and lacks puck feel BUT they are about $24.99 US

The One55 shaft has great durability is cheap and performs well and sells for $41.99 new in most places US dollars. It also has a 2 month warranty. I do not know what that converts to in Canadian money but really I think it will be the cheapest he finds unless some amazing clearance price shows up we've not seen before or something.

If he buys anything online he will still have to pay shipping which is about $10+ for sticks as they are a longer than a normal shipping box.

Thanks for the input guys, but i was wondering if a two piece stick with a wood blade would make the stick too bottom-heavy? Never tried one so i dunno

Which is why I said to buy it at sportcheck, not the hockey shop.

Just go to a hockey store and check out last year's models. I've seen plenty of sticks in the $60-90 (US) range and play with people that only buy those cheaper composite sticks and love them.

I followed the link you lefta dn am not wure why you left it for that website which has them at the normal price. I do not know what Sportchek is so I googled it (since you didn't leave a link) and looked on their website and they do not have this model and am more confused now than before by your post lolz.

Yes they will have more blade weight but nothing too much to overcome. There are a couple of NHL players who use wood with a composite shaft.

The link was to show the price at the hockey shop and show some info on the stick.

The sport check web site sucks and doesn't have all the sticks they have in stock.

Pretty simple really.

Very light and cheap don't go together, so you have to decide if you want something cheap and heavy or light and expensive.

On the other hand, if you get a clearance model high end shaft and pair it with a wood blade, stick a wood plug in the top (even if it's cut flush), it should balance well and the weight isn't as noticeable.

How does the OP's final decision have anything to do with you being confused? That makes no sense.

You're confused because you either didn't read my first post (all of 3 lines) and blindly clicked the link, or ... (let's not go there)

Bought this stick for 100$ at Sports Experts. Stiff like a board but I love it.

Seriously, though. I want a car with at least 300 horsepower, all-wheel drive and 4 doors for less than $5k. That's never gonna happen, so unless you find cheap pro-returns you're SOL.
