Winwell has been providing sticks, protective gear and even a skate or two for Canadian Tire stores here. They're low-end stuff

I would only use Winwell sticks for playing road hockey and cleaning gutters.

Hopefully Winnwell ain't that bad. It's the company currently protecting "my boys."

Winnwell used to have some 300 and 500 (or something like that) composites that were actually Warrior Dolomites and MacDaddys repainted for dirt cheap. Their new gear isn't bad, but I don't know anything about their sticks.

I just picked up a set of G-light shin pads. I thing the G-light series is the high end stuff. There are some pros that use Winnwell equipment (ProStock). Prostock sticks are 105 flex,, Aww heck here is the Winnwell Link.

The guys who use winwell love it. The guys who see it as Crappy tire store brand hate it and probably never used it.

I'm very impressed with the quality of the Winnwell Shins I have. I put my Joffa / Rbk 3K pro stock shins into my shinny bag and the G-lights are holding up well in the mens league.

If you do get the stick let us know what you think.

When TPS was aquired by SWD, some employees went elseware... notice how similar the glove they're wearing looks compared to the R8 glove.
