If durability is the main thing, then cross out the CCM U+ Crazy Light. I don't know anything about the S19 or SE 16 so I'll let someone else take care of that biz.

None of those. The SE16 has a blade that has a reputation for being delicate, the S19 is much better then the S17 but the jury is still out, and the CL is not durable at all.

If durability is the main concern, look into an easton ST.

I have a pair of Synergy ST's that have been to hell and back enough times to build enough frequent flier miles to take a trip to pluto. If it's durability you want, go for the ST.

what type of player are you? what kind of shots do you take, are you a hacker, etc... you should probably get a 2 piece stick if you want durability.

Well, out of the people here, I'm giving the CCM U+ CL and normal U+'s a passing grade. I've used them for the past year now, and having played relatively high level of adult hockey, they're as durable, or more so, than the other sticks on the market. I've broken 2 in the past year now, both on plays that would have broke any other stick.

i've used all three. they are all very different sticks. i'll speak to the S19 and U+CL though as i dont feel that SE16 is in the same category.

currently i bring an S19 and a U+ CL to every game and alternate between each because i enjoy each of them for their own unique characteristics.

firstly, i find the S19 to be way more durable than the S17 (big improvements here). the U+ CL has a much different feel than any other stick i've ever used, and the response is amazing. i never used the U+, but from what i hear, there were major problems with premature blade degradation.

msrp on the two are significantly different (S19 is $300, U+CL is $249), the U+CL is much lighter than easton would have you believe (they list the S19 at 410) while the U+CL is CONFIRMED at 405, the real life difference in weight between the two is much more than 5 grams. the S19 feels more delicate while in use, but that just may be me since i flew through S17s last season) shaft shape on the S19 is concave, whereas the U+CL is rounded. if you're concerned about durability, you really should consider a lower price point stick as this category hardly emphasizes "durable" as a feature. however, if you choose to go the top of the line route, consider the fact that a U+CL easily transitions into a decent 2 piece while the S19 takes a bit more patience (i've broken one of each)

go handle both of them with your gloves on, play around with them, figure out which shaft shape feels best for you and commit!


i cant choose between the two (like i said, i bring both to every game and decide in the warm up), but at least i can offer some first hand experience.

I would say get what you like; whether it's the CCM U+CL or the S19; you are the one that is going to have to use it. There are definitely going to be mixed reactions on which one will be more durable (or possibly going with another model stick). I have a buddy that plays roller hockey 3 times a week that has never broken his SE16 (he's bought new ones because of the shaft/blade losing it's flex). Other players will have broken a new stick in a handful of games or even worse; one game. A two piece set up might be a better way to go, that way if you snap/crack a blade, you don't have to replace the entire stick. Best of luck on whatever stick you purchase!

i've only used the s19 and the former s17 and se16 so i can't comment on the u+ (altho i really wanna get my hands on one and try it).

the stories of easton's durability can be confirmed by me. i've gone thru probably 6 sticks in beer league hockey over the past 2 seasons. the s19 blade chipped at the toe and broke in maybe 4 games. the s17 blade broke right in the middle. and the se16 snapped at the shaft, broke in the heel, split in the toe, and chipped and broke in the middle.

while the stick was healthy, the performance and feel were amazing and better than any other stick i've used. but if you want durability, the bauer 195 has survived a full season plus weekend shinny games and my experience with the warrior dolomite makes me want to go back to it and try it out again.

If it doesn't have to be any of those sticks, I would say go with the one95
