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.
