I was using a Reebok 7K full composite prior to using the Warrior Swagger. The serious vibration with every stick save and short life span (2 months before the shaft snapped) of composite sticks had me looking at all wood and foam core sticks.
I immediately liked that the foam core in the Swagger just soaks up vibration from stick saves. I also like the shaft is wood and can take a serious beating, a beating that my composite stick could not. From me banging posts and making saves off of the shaft as much as I do, I would have busted another composite stick by now. Not to mention the Backstrom mid curve is wicked. I get more lift on pucks then with the Giguere and Turco patterns I have tried. I have been using my original Swagger for 5 months now and as long as they keep making them like this I will keep buying them.
