I recently bought this stick because I broke my previous one (obviously). I picked this one based on the reviews at first. While at the store I picked it up and was shocked at how light it was. At only 435 grams, this thing is 80 grams lighter than the stick I was using. I saw an immediate increase in my stick handling abilities and it just felt so much better to skate with.
I am going to disagree with one of the previous reviews though about the flex. I have been an 85 flex player so I was a little hesitant to get the whip 70 flex. The above review says that the flex plays much stiffer than 70 but I think it is dead on. It definitely has more whip than my previous 85 flex stick, but I like it. It took me a little while to get used to the new curve, I got the Nash curve and love it, and the whipper flex. My snap and wrist shots are coming off much hotter and I can controll the height better. My slapper is totally different and I like it much more. Due to the whip and light weight of the stick my slapper is coming off extremely hot. I am also able to controll the height much better. I doubt the controll of height is due to the stick, probably just more confidence, but I'll take it. Like I said, the shot is coming off significantly harder and with more accuracy.
Overall, this stick is great. It is light, comes in great curve options, and has a great feel when shooting. I wish it came in better color options, mine is kind of a maroon color but looks black on the ice, so works for me. You can't beat the price for a stick of this weight. I was looking around doing research before I made my decision and this stick is only 9 grams heavier than one of the lightest sticks on the market and is over $100 less! Take some time to get used to it and you will not be disappointed.
