I have never tried it on ice, but stick handled with the Bentley in store and hated it. It was so clunky and heavy...

Reebok 8.0.8 based solely on the durability. Broke the first one in 9 days, warrantied it which took two weeks, broke the new one in less than a week....

I had some two piece Easton stick back before one piece composites were only first being introduced. I think it was a Bubble or something, but I got slashed right in the shaft of the stick and it broke in half. It was only 5-10 games into the season too.

Good call, I forgot how ridiculously stiff it is. Thank God I have a NB One95 and a Vapor XVI as backup.

Yeah, there are two current models of the "O" sticks...the 6.0.6 and the 8.0.8. Can't say anything about the 8, but the 6 model is brutal.

Speaking of easily broken sticks, those TPS R2 Armors were terrible. I snapped one in warmups the first time I used it (to date it's the only stick I've broken). Had several other teammates snap those things in the same spot, 6-12" from the blade.

I was a goalie but the worst stick was an Itech ( can't remember which model). Every time I would slap it on the ice it sounded like wet cardboard. After about 5 games the fiber on the back of the paddle started to unravel and looked like it was growing hair. It was terrible.

Theres the 3.0.3 at the lowest price point, but i cant see anyone going for that, the 3 holes are useless

Agree with others about the Warrior Bentley stick. Absolutely horrible stick - it's heavy, puck feel is bad, the construction doesn't feel balanced, etc. What a waste of 100 bucks.
