Great stick
Pros: Helped improve my game, Great value, Quality, Easy to use, Features
At the time of purchase, this was my first composite stick. It helped me shoot wrist shots much harder than before. After cutting it down, I can now stick handle with it pretty well and take slappers. Wrist shots remain my preferred shot with this stick.
The blade is cracking about a year later. I have probably skated with it for 30 or 40 games in an intermediate league so I don't know how durable that is.
Overall, I really enjoyed using the stick. I've bought new sticks since then but the weight and blade pattern of this GX8 have been best for me.
I won't be buying another because I need to try new sticks and really find my perfect match. However, for $80, this stick was great while it lasted.

If you are an experienced player that is picky about your equipment but don't want to spend a fortune on sticks then pick up this stick.
I also picked up a Bauer One60 (stick of comparable price 99.99) (P92 Backstrom curve) and there is no comparison. The GX8 is way lighter and technology far superior.
I would previously pick up Winwell sticks because you could get them so cheap but they broke down fast. I used the GX8 for a month (about15-20) skates before writing this review and there is no signs of breaking down and the graphics still look great.
