Pros: Helped improve my game, Quality, Easy to use, Features
Cons: Expensive, made in china
I bought this stick for my boy, because I am an avid Miken fan when it comes to their softball bats. Prior to using this Miken, he was using a Bauer Endure, low end stick. The difference in my son's wrist shot and slapshot was apparent right away. His range and puck velocity improved greatly. As advertised, the NO CUT technology was great. I only had to cut off an inch and the stick still felt whippy. He has used it in about 40 games and the stick is still doing great. There are only small nicks from your normal skate and board contact. The blade seems very rigid and still offers pretty good puck feel according to my son. All in all, I would have to say its an excellent stick. I would have liked to see the price point a bit lower though....maybe just over the $100 range. Other than that and being made in China, I would stick with Miken!!!!!
