I usually play goalie, but when I do skate out, I like a stick that is better used for wrist shots instead of slap shots. This stick along with the P77 (Coffey) curve gives you just that. The slap shots are aren't bad either, but the wrist shots I'm taking are as accurate as ever. The stick weights as much as you'd expect a stick to weigh that is composite. It's a stiffer flex then some of the lower end composite sticks which makes it ideal for men's league, and even more competitive levels of hockey. I've used it for 2 full seasons of inline and some ice hockey as well and it's still going strong. Give it a try, you might like it.
