I'm thinking about a ONE95 shaft and an ST blade. Never used a two piece before. Any thoughts or recommendations?
I LOVE my one95 two-piece. Not familiar with ST but if its the same price as the one95 blade might aswell as snag a one95(if they got curve you like of course). Durability wise my one95 blades have held up real well and not to mention performance wise its great. Hate repeating myself all the time in these boards but getting a one95 two-piece for 140$ is a fkn steallllll. No clue why Bauer charges much less for their one95 shaft than others but hell I hope they do it forever.
agree with blueberry. if you're going with the one95 standard shaft, might as well use the one95 blade too. imo, it's far superior to the st blade...lighter, stiffer, awesome feel and just as durable.
that being said, if you're more of a wrist/snap shot guy and feel is more secondary to you, then i highly recommend the dolomite dd shaft with any tapered blade of your choice. kicks nice and hard, no slouch on slap shots either.
Two pieces are great...not sure why, but I love them. I have a Vector 08 shaft with a TPS composite blade, Frolov curve. It has worked great for me but I just got a Easton Synergy Magnum shaft for cheap and put a wooden Easton blade in it. I'm loving it so far. The key is to find a curve you like, because you could always use this curve no matter what shaft you get.
Easton Synergy ST, ST blade. I really haven't found something that beats it for durability/performance. Good balanced stick for pretty much everything. Not outstanding at any one aspect, but good all around. Wrist/Snap, slappers, puck feel, weight, all good, and it can take a beating. I prefer two-pieces because I ALWAYS break the blade before I snap the shaft. The dreaded "puck mark" cracks on the blades drive me nuts.
