I bought this stick after breaking several higher end Eastons in the span of a few months. I wanted to transition to a shaft and blade design to minimize replacement costs. The shaft has held up like a tank, not to mention the remarkable feel with the puck, especially when I paired the shaft with a totalOne blade. The blade broke after 3 months and I couldn't find another totalOne blade to replace it with, I put a One30 blade in and still like the feel. All in all, if you're looking for durability and maximum feel, I would recommend this shaft.
