Pros: Great value, Quality, Easy to use, stickhandlig, well balanced
Cons: small chip
After 3 games (in non checking league) and lots of hours spend in my backyard shooting with this stick I need to say that I'm really surprised. Having played with the Reebok 8k and Easton S65II before, this one is my favorite. I don't know if its lot about the curve which is the classic sakic curve, but this stick feels just better in hands, you have the feel of balance and it is also lightweight. You can't probably buy lighter stick for that price. Shooting really easy doesn't matter if slap shots or wrist shots. And also the green grip colored surface is really nice.
So that was what I like about this stick but there are some things that I'm a bit worried. First after half an hour off shooting outside I heard this rattling sound so I just opened the shaft cover and emptied a piece of fiberglass/glue or whatever and after that it was all right. (This also happened to my easton S65II but after emptying it was still rattling so I just sanded it back). So I hope this was just minor problem, some peace off glue from the shaft connecting the blade and it will not affect the stick later. Another small thing is that the shaft with the grip surface looks really solid, but on the blade is already chipped, about half inch. Compare to the 8k it looks like the surface of the blade is not so tough but I hope it will not be a big problem, just the time will show. But in general I need to say I'm really satisfied with this stick and can't wait to try the upper models 421 and 521
