Pros: Helped improve my game, Great value, Quality, Easy to use, Features
I pulled the trigger on this stick after a scouring the internet looking for the best deal. After playing with it a number of times, I was not at all disappointed. The thing that I noticed the most right off the bat was the feel of the stick. I'm not sure how they did it, but receiving good hard passes with this stick is as easy as breathing. I never realized how much difference a stick could make in that regard, but I'll never discount it again.
As for the rest of the stick's performance, its lie, 5.5 is a bit more upright than I had used previously. While this limits your reach slightly, I certainly feel more in control of the puck. As for shooting, the different lie (I had used a 4 previously) required a brief period of getting used to, but I feel that my accuracy has gotten a bit better as a result.
Overall, I am very pleased with my purchase, and would certainly recommend this stick to anyone, especially those that could stand to improve their feel with the puck.
