This is my first Easton stick and I am very pleased! I have improved my game overall and am very agile with the sticks weight. The only problem I have with this stick is that it gets chipped easily from pucks and the some of the lower parts of the stick get puck marks. (To remove puck marks, an adhesive remover but don't wipe on tape because the tape will come off.) I love this stick so far and recommend this to anyone of any skill or age or position. For me it is a true all-around stick.
