CCM Octogun 10 stick

Anyone ever use one of these sticks. I just ordered one on icewarehouse.com because they were only 29.99. Also has anyone used the Tavares curve too?

At that price, it is probably not a true one piece stick (fused). I have looked into the Tavares/Recchi curve, as its the closest to the Shanahan curve I still have.

had 2 "ccm vector 06" sticks and broke one - replaced one with an "octogun 10" (birthday present).

the octogun 10 is one of the worst sticks i have ever had - the cheap vector one is better - it has some chipping at the end of the blade. the octogun 10 not only chipped but cracked, and is unusable after little use. i have no slap shot, and sticks generally last me a long time - before the vectors i had wood sticks and they were more likely to go soft first instead of breaking.

Most OPS's are "fused" anyway.

Honestly, a good woodie is almost always better than a cheap composite. I know the $30 price tag seemed good, but why not save up until you can spend $80 or 90 and get a good stick? This one won't last long or perform well.

I would say a decent woodie (35-40$) is worth a 80-90$ OPS.

My opinion obviously.

I would agree, but a lot of stuff is getting blown out via close-out right now. Farrell sticks for $89, Dolomites for $99, etc. Even a TPS R4 at $60 is pretty nice, far better than wood

Ya agree,im talking retail (before sales price)

Dolo for 99$ is a must get, R4 for 60 is a great price too.
