These sticks are excellent. I have a little confusion about the stock curves, but when I do find the old Theodore curve, I buy as many as I can. I find that sometimes the PP41 model is the same as the old Theodore, but sometimes I find it the same as the Thibault. Either way, this stick is just awesome. I use them regularly,even though I do have a nice assortment of sticks, because I am so impressed with their durability, considering how much I handle the puck. They keep a nice stiffness for as long as I would expect them to (this may not be as long as some other people, I really love the feeling of a new stick) and I believe they are worth their price.
