new Hockey Stick

what kind of stick would you recomend for me? I play RW. Id also like to try and keep the stick under 100$ but a bit over doesnt matter. Id like a light stick that is very easy to handle the puck with and has good flex.

Any suggestions?

There are so many factors that go into buying a stick, how tall are you and how much do you weigh? The flex should be considered first, then the other stuff

Best bet for the value under 100 is the X40.. everyone on these boards seems to say it a good stick.. I am deciding between that and the Dolomite Spyne. which is on clearance right now..
Nice AVI by the way

+1 on the X40. Best for the price IMO. Heard they did have some durability issues but so far so good.

why would you get a price point X:40 when you can have the Spyne? Well unless the Spyne doesn't have the flex/curve you want...but the Dolo Spyne is a top-of-the-line stick.

I really wanted to get it from icewarehouse cuz it was on clearance but they dont have my flex anymore. Curve is no biggy. i have never used a warrior stick/curve anyway. That was my main reason for being so hesitant to buy the stick. I have used Vapor before and i loved it. I hear Dolo is an awesome stick for the price but how is the durability. Cuz i like to get a lower # flex (im only 160 lbs) which can cause to break the stick easier

Is the x40 the same as the XXXX? If so, then it's a great stick and I love it. I use the gagne curve.

All you need to know about hockey sticks

You pretty much can't get anything light under $100 new. I'd look for clearance One95's, SE16's, Dolomites, etc. Lots of them online for that price range.

Otherwise I'd pick up a tapered shaft and a tapered wood blade until you have the cash for a composite blade.

I actually just checked over at Ice Warehouse, an 8k + an Easton SE16 tapered blade with the 10% off coupon code (search Google) is about $100 and I think you get free shipping. I'd put that up against any $100 stick. Or a few bucks more and get a clearance Dolomite.
