This stick is sweet. It has a nice feel, is light and is very durable. Make sure you get the non grip-tac kind because it's lighter and allows for quicker hand movement on the shaft. ThIt's a bit on the pricey side, but if you have the money to spend, then it's totally worth it. I've always used Bauer Sticks (One 95, APX and Nexus) and I like this one the best. I considered switching to the CCM RBZ (the white Taylor Made one) but I stuck with Bauer and I don't regret it. Bauer always makes quality gear and this is no exception.
