I was given this stick, so as the saying goes I drive it like I stole it.
Having said that , it was a little tough to get use to the feel at first, there is no weight to speak of and I over taped the butt end during the first game with it.
After taking the tape off the balance came back , but I had to look down constantly to see where the puck was. I don't shoot hard enough to break glass, but this stick is nasty when it comes to snap shots, wristers to the corners or just snap passes.
Too expensive for me to replace however.
