As each manufacturer measures their sticks in their own unique way, we created this method to help you compare your stick at home with the models that we have in our inventory. By knowing how your current stick size compares to the stick that you're looking to purchase, you can make the best purchasing decision possible.To measure your current stick, place the end of the tape measurer at the point where the top of the paddle meets the shaft of the stick on the non-blade side. Then, measure down the paddle in a straight line until the tape measurer crosses the bottom of the blade to determine the TG True paddle size. Keep in mind that this measurement may vary depending on the blade pattern, but it will help you choose the most comparable size.

Feels great, but didn't last long
I liked the feel and performance of this stick - especially liked how whippy the stick was. However, it didn't last too long. I guess that's not horrible given the price of the stick,

Great Value Stick!
Pros: Helped improve my game, Great value
Cons: rough around the edges.
Bought this review with the intentions of it being a back up for a RBK 6k that is on its last legs. However, its now my full time stick. I love this stick. It feels amazing, much better feel of the puck than the RBK. Its quite light, just as light as the composite stick i have. Quality wise, i've had no problems. A lot of the reviews say theirs snapped in half after a few uses. I've had this stick for about 3 months now, and i use it 1-3ish times a week, with no problem what so ever. The shaft is quite worn from regular play, but no cracks or chips. Only real complaint from this stick was the fiberglass splintered easily when i first bought it. I got a number of painful splinters from it, but i've sanded it down and seem to have no more issues. I intend on getting a few more while they are still on sale!

Not A Bad Stick
Pros: Helped improve my game, Great value, Easy to use
Cons: Quality
Well after reading the other two reviews of this stick I'm on par with what they said, however mine lasted longer then just 2 uses. While attempting to handle the puck and make a pass, the shaft snapped in half right about where paddle and the shaft meet. I purchased another one not long after that with a different curve (first stick was Broduer, second purchase was Leclaire). I liked the curve better and am currently still using the same stick I purchased about 4 months ago. It does feel nice and the blade and paddle seem to be quality, but the shaft isn't. Even for roller hockey which uses a slightly lighter pucker. There are numerous chips and splintering on the shaft of the stick which can rip your blocker, or even cause injury. Overall, I'm not disappointed with this stick, but I'm going to agree that there are better purchases out there.

Pros: percieved value
Cons: junk
Bought this for my son just before Christmas. Wanted him to use this for practice and leave his X-60's for games. He used it it one practice, then used it for a clinice with younger goalies. Was playing the puck, while flex it, it snapped in half. He has used Sherwood growing up. I was shocked by the quality. There is no warranty on wood stick. $70 for a stick that we used 2 times, not good.

Pros: Easy to use
Cons: Quality
It's an ok stick for just messing around. Used it for 7 rec games did ok. Used it once for my sons' practice to show him how to stickhandle as a goalie and snapped the stick in two. It just popped right in half, right where the paddle meets the shaft.
