New Hockey Stick

I know that there are alot of these threads but I need some advice. I am about 145lbs, 5'10'' and need a new stick. I just used an S17 Iginla 65. I was thinking One95 but I am open to any new suggestions.

It's all personal preference. Find a pattern you like with a lie that works and go for it.

i'd recommend for you though a 75 flex stick that has full senior length. or, an 85 flex stick. you're going to be pissed when you buy a 65 and you snap that thing. it is fun as hell though if you're trying to hehehe

One95 is a great stick by all accounts. I'm 5'9.5" but am quite a bit heavier and I use a senior regular flex cut one inch so it gets to just under my chin on skates. It may be too stiff for you so you can try a mid flex (77 for Bauer as raganblink mentioned). But if you prefer something even whippier than you could look for the intermediate stick if it isn't too short. Intermediate stick is 57" while senior is 60" (so I have it at 59"). It's really amazing how big a difference one inch can feel.

How old are you btw, still growing? Will you be putting on some more weight or height? If so then I would stray from intermediate and go with senior sticks.
