Pros: Helped improve my game, Great value, Quality, Easy to use
Cons: paint quality
Got this, coming from the Warrior Abyss Composite Hybrid Goalie Stick '11 Model. I got it in natural w/ red. The first thing I noticed, is the logo had spider web cracking all throughout it due to it being natural with little-to-no clear coating on it. Not a big deal, but feel in terms of long term durability it might be a downside. Overall the balance is a lot better feeling than the '11 composite. First thing I did to it was cut out my "shark fin" grooves for my finger, smoothed it out, taped it up, and put my cut-down tacki-mac onto the end. I've played 3 times with it so far. Overall it is heavier than the Abyss Composite '11, but the balance makes it un noticable, and this one feels a lot better in my hand. This one deadens the shock of a shot a lot better too. Overall--and so far--it's not a bad stick at all for the money. My '11 was a little too short so it's going to be my last resort back-up stick for now on.
Can't complain at all other than cosmetics like mentioned, but it's hockey, and it's going to get torn up anyway.
