Bought 2 of these as a pro return. PROS: Incredibly light and balanced. Plays the puck great. Grip zones work great, so stick requires less tape, keeping it lighter. CONS: Finish chips very easily. I've used both of my sticks to make sure wasn't just a flaw. Both sticks outer layer chipped from puck impacts, exposing a black layer underneath. Sticks didn't outright break, but makes me wonder bout their durability. I layered epoxy over the chips to halt their progress, which has been working, but more chips appear. OVERALL: Great stick, feel, play, balance, but I would never pay full price for it. On clearance, I'd pick some up, otherwise no.
