This CCM stick that i bought a little over 4 months ago, & to be honest i really like this stick. It is one of the newest sticks out, and i take alot of high wrist shots and slap shots with my 8 ounce puck and this stick works good for me. I would totally reccomend this stick to one of my friends. I love the design on the stick, that's another reason why I bought it. This stick is also very light, which is good. The stick is on the expensive side, which i really didnt like. I mean $50 for one hockey stick, come on... So far, i really love this stick and hopefully i can use it for a long time!
