All for senior non grip. The ones that are ~ are because they were weighed from a review site so not sure how accurate.

Thanks for posting these weights, it gives me an idea about where my stick lies in these since mine is not a popular easily found stick.

I use a two piece Harrow and the website claims the shaft is 365g ... and the blade is 150g making the whole combo 515g. Oddly enough they do not list a weight for their one piece sticks.

It has a semi-gloss rubber grip which probably adds that extra. Again thanks for the info here about these other sticks. I did not know what those were in a compare.

While the overall weight of the stick is important, I would also make sure that you like the balance of the stick. The balance of the stick can be just as critical as the overall weight; if not more important.

Yes absolutely, I have two One55 shafts with whatever blades in them and then I use my Harrow tapered better quality shafts and the difference in balance and feel is night and day.

I use the Harrow blades made for the Harrow shaft and they are perfectly balanced.

You are absolutely correct in all ways.

Don't mean to hijack the OP, but do you get your Harrow goods from Harrow direct? I have not seen any shops in my area that carry their product, but have only heard good things about them. Are their flex ratings pretty accurate? I usually use a 75 flex, which ends up being about an 85 flex when it's cut down.

Ummm well I bought mine at a dealer here and they are the only one in my state for hockey. Everyone else has their Lacrosse stuff which I heard is excellent also.

Their website sells their stuff easily enough too if you do not have a store though trying before buying is something stick buyers like if they have never used one before. I mean you may not like their stick ... most have a concave shaft and some guys like a box shape although they have one model that is a box shape and is a little more in price. I already know how their stuff feels so for me ordering from their website is not an issue.

Their flex ratings accuracy? I do not know how accurate they are by using some sort of gauge or something BUT I can tell you I use their 100 flex 300 series shafts, I use their 2 piece, I weigh 240lbs and the 100 flex is very stiff and seems accurate to me. I have a couple of 87 flex sticks here by another manufacturer and those feel very whippy. I have never used the Harrow one piece so no comment on those but I would assume they would also be accurate with regards to flex.

Their sticks have a clearly marked flex guide to tell you what the flex is if you cut it there.

I am not very experienced with composites as I used wood for about 35 years and switched to a cheap compo to see if I liked them which were the Bauer One55 shafts with quality blades then after I did find that I liked composites I tried out the Harrows as my local shop had them in the store and liked how much better than the One55 stuff it was as the One55 really is not a top notch stick at all.

I am a shooter and liked the glossy rubber grip on the Harrow (they offer matte rubber and glossy rubber) and the stick is balanced extremely well which is on topic with the OP I guess.

I think I have seen only one other Harrow user in here and I forgot who it is.

They are good sticks and are also extremely durable. I started using Harrow in April last year and play at least twice a week in the summer time and more in the winter, weigh 240lbs with a very heavy shot and I play defesnse blocking shots and stick whacking or whatever and have broken just ONE Harrow blade 2 weeks ago actually.

They are not THE lightest stick at 515g (the two piece) but the website explained they went for puck feel over lightweight instead of other top end sticks. They boast having an AVS insert which is supposedly some vibration absorbing things in the shaft to give the stick feel.

I love the feel of these 2 I own after using them for almost a year now exclusively. The kickpoint is one that gives me accuracy and a quick release.

I have no complaints about them at all except that I wish they offered a 115 flex or higher because I am a big guy and could use that. I absolutely rip plexiglas breaking slapshots with them as they have a nice sweet spot I call it.

I was looking at those two sticks yesterday. The XXV felt lighter and more balanced imo.

X:40 is 513g.

I would have to assume the XXV is in the 480 range.

Keep in mind tape can add 50 grams too. I'd worry more about balance than weight.

Someone should seriously compile a database of stick weights

The weights of the sticks are usually based on a particular flex, length and curve. So unfortunately the numbers may vary a bit due to the aforementioned attributes.

The amount they vary is negligible in terms of usage.
