Best Stick under $120

Been playing for ages but have gone wood up till now.

I play D, mostly stay at home but need a stick that will give me a good slapper as well as be exceptional for sweeping the puck away from people and also for the odd breakaway or shootout.

Thoughts?

X:40, 6K and if you're willing to move up $10-20 you can get the top of the line Sherwood T90.

You can buy a good shaft and a wood blade so you can switch out of curves etc and will only need to replace the blade if broken and not the entire stick.

Any old sticks on clearance.

I'll second the X40. Good durable stick for around $90.

U might be able to find One95s, SE16s, ST's or any other old top of the line sticks for that price.

Winnwell GX8 is by far the best stick under $100 bucks.

http://www.hockeymonkey.com/winnwell...k-gx-8-sr.html

The stick compares to my one85 for half the price.

Easton SE16 or Warrior MacDaddy. Both great twigs for under $130

Agreed on the Sherwood T90. Great stick for the price.

I would go X:40 or One80 but there are so many clearance sticks for under $125 locally that I'd buy one of those. I've seen One95's for $100 and Warriors for $120 (intermediate sizes).

Warrior Vandal retails for $120, online retailers have it for $100. Pretty nice stick in my opinion.

I personally like the RBK 7K I use that stick three nights a week and have had it since October and still no cracks and I take slap shots with it all the time. Also used it when I skated outdoors this past winter and its still going strong. Now its 99.99 http://www.hockeymonkey.com/reebok-h...ick-ii-sr.html

I would go with an Easton ST as some already suggested. It has a bit more weight then the top sticks, but it's also a tank (besides for you coming from a wood stick it will seems crazy light anyway). You should be able to get a 2010 model for under $120. Blue is non grip (similar to wood) red is grip.

It is still a great stick, some NHL pros use it as well.

That's what I came to say. There are some good sticks under $120 but ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS check the clearance rack. Most of the time if I find the curve and one of the 2 flexes I like I'll buy a clearance stick, especially if it was a formerly $200 stick. I know a lot of times not too much changes year to year for stick models, so you're getting pretty much the same as the new stuff, just a few years old, but it's still never been used. Check clearance first before anything else.

These aren't clearance sticks, but have served me well for under $90 shipped.

-Easton S7 Grip $80

-Easton EQ30 Grip $90

Not the lightest or the top models, but they have held up and I really don't think I would score anymore goals with a $200 stick than I do now.

Had the 7k and broke 3 of them in a month, I almost never break sticks.

Sherwood t-90 is about 120 on HM, best stick under 200.

Bauer One60 and Easton SE6 have served me pretty well.

I found myself browsing this thread the other day and I sat and asked myself "Why? You have 3 sticks.."..... Welp, lone be hold I've broken 2 of the 3 in the past 2 nights

If anyone knows or has any shafts that are 100-110 flex for sale hit me up, I've got 2 lonely blades.

If I'm looking at a OPS, Bauer Supreme One60 or the VaporX40?

Use the discount code on hockeymonkey and pick up the warrior kgb in the kremlin pattern. Awesome stick.

You should find out if those blades are traditional/standard or tapered and get a shaft to fit them (standard to standard etc.)

The Warrior AK27 shaft is widely avalable in those flexes and is a quality product, but it takes only standard blades.

Their standard.. I picked up 2 Mission shafts from the Blues equipment sale last September and they finally blew out on me. I had a AK27 pro stock shaft that I got off ebay, I was sketchy purchasing it off ebay but when I got it the shaft looked like it hadn't been touched or use and it snapped in 3 games.

If it was prostock, there's a chance that it is a completely different shaft from retail, just to keep in mind.

Most of the top-end shafts are tapered, but the AK27 and Z-Bubble/S15/S19 shafts are great. Try to find older Z-Bubbles or S15s if you can, no need to buy an S19 as you're simply paying for the paintjob and nothing else more.
