Settled on a good woodie - Sherwood PMP 7K

After trying a few woodies, I've decided to stake my climb to the professional ranks - starting with being the left-wing on the NY Islanders 6th line, on my location and application of the Sherwood PMP 7000 Spezza Rightside-shot PP19 (okay, more like aspiring to be on the 3rd line of my D-5 developmental team).

It is more comfortable than the other woodies I've tried, but it seems to be a challenge to find them, even online.

Does anyone have any info on this stick - as in, has it been discontinued?

If so, and I do prefer them - should I buy like 12 of them if I am able to locate them?

Where do you live? This is not a discontinued stick, where I live you can buy 'em in hardware stores. If you want to be able to find your stick again easily though, try the Sher-Wood 5030. Best selling stick of all time I believe. Woodies also dry out and get brittle so I probably wouldn't stockpile too many unless you are breaking them really often.

They're about $40-45 US and available in most shops. Good stick, fiberglass reinforced, stiff as hell though. How tall are you? I wouldn't touch it unless I was over 6' 185 personally.

In response to this and the above post, I live in NYC and find it hilarious that in Canada you can buy hockey equipment in a hardware store. That reminds me of Las Vegas, where they have slot machines in the bathrooms. Maybe I should move up there, I can see how seriously Canada takes its hockey...

I am 5-10 1/2", 185 lbs - and find it catches passes very nicely. My wrist shot with the Bauer One55 was nowhere near what I could do with the PMP 7K, even though the flex was only 3 points higher (90 vs. 87). Haven't tried a slapper with it yet, though.

When I bought it at the LHS, they cut off about an inch or two, having measured it against me.

I know, I always hear Canadians talking about how they run down to the corner store and buy a 5030 for $20, meanwhile my LHS has maybe two of them in stock and they're $40 each.

I gave up on wood. I can't find one with any whip to it (70-75 flex). If Warrior started making Montreal 4400's again, I might be tempted, but it'd probably cost $50.

Precisely why I cant use woodies ever again...I even think 77 isa bit too stiff. Might try a TPS 70 whip flex next, do they offer those in R4's?

Yup, the R4 is offered in 70 flex. Prob will have to get off the internet though, dont see too many R4 around especially whips

Problem is whippy wood sticks tend to have flimsy blades and torque too much, killing the accuracy.

Good thing composites don't have any of these issues.

I was wondering if people had picked up on the title...

To the earlier poster, I went to Paragon and they had the 5030s, it was at Westside that I bought the 7K, and will go back there in the next few days to pick up another one.

There is a huge difference between it and other woods I've tried.

Well at least it sounds like he took it slow and didn't just suddenly drop onto it.

Sorry OP. Having fun with your choice of words. No offense intended.

Oh man, this stick was the ONLY stick I used from 1999-2004. I used a Bourque blade with it and it was just magic. Hardest non-composite slapshot I've ever had when I used the PMP 7000. Great stick and I wish they still had the Bourque blades. I think the Coffey blade is a similar cut but it's sitll not the same . I'm 6'2" 200 lbs so I guess that fits the bill on this stick only being good for tall heavy players.

None taken...I'm just a little disappointed in the forum membership that it took 15 posts for someone to "get" my choice of phraseology...

I guess the collective hockey IQ here exceeds the board's etymological skills

Oh I locked onto it as soon as I saw the thread title.

But then again, I can see sexual situations in stuff like mowing the lawn, so it wasn't really a stretch.
