Pros: Great value, durability
Cons: Quality, weight, rebounds, finish on the stick
This stick shows great durability and resistance to shots. The reasons why I do not qualify it as a recommendation to a friend or higher than three stars is because of the finish, rebounds, and weight.
The finish on the stick is beautiful and slick but when you try holding onto it with your glove, it likes to slide down your hand. A better design would be to add a grip on the main handle area.
The rebounds, when coming off the stick, are quite bouncy and have projectile. I do not like the amount of control you do not have with these rebounds. It is nice to stear the puck into the boards and netting but those pucks that fly around after hitting the stick in the five hole area are dangerous.
And finally the weight. This isn't a large issue for me but the amount of tape that I had to put onto this stick has added to the weight more than what I would like. I think of a composite stick as being light and swift. A bit heavier than I would like it for this stick.
