I've been playing goalie for about 20 years now and have gone though plenty of sticks. Finally, after all these years, I've really come to love the Bauer One90 goalie stick.
There are several things that make this stick great. First, weight. Yeah, I've used wood stick and/or combinations of such in years past but now, with carbon and fiber sticks, they can be extremely light. What's nice with this One90, is that it's NOT "as light as a feather" which is a good thing. You want to keep your stick on the ice and it has just the right balance of being lightweight but solid in your hand that you don't get wild with it and forget you have a stick in your hand.
Next is ergonomics. This stick is a piece or art and technology all wrapped into one! I love that the paddle is flat and not rounded like other sticks. With a flat face, pucks hit it and drop right in front of you so you can cover them up. It doesn't allow the puck to "roll" off your stick and to the sides which is a killer when your in your butterfly and the puck is then 2 feet to your left or right because it rolling off the paddle.
The grip on this stick is awesome too. No more need for tape. No more ruining a two-hundred-plus blocker with sticky and gummy tape that gets all over your palm. Whatever material they use is just right! The stick wont slide and yet you can easily release when you need to do a poke-check or pass the puck to your d-men.
What is also really cool with this One90 is that the paddle isn't perfectly straight either. When looking down the stick form the top. Most sticks are just strait from top to bottom, but this really isn't the best design for a goalie that always has the stick out in front of him/her. The One90 actually bends/twists the paddle back, ever so slightly, as to properly face to shooter and give you better control when the puck hits it. Something so small makes a huge difference.
As for what blade to order . . . I can help with two of them as I've used both the P39 and P31 blades. Both are fine but it depends on your style of play. For the P39 (heel closed) this kind of blade it more flat to the shooter and will leave the puck in front of you so you can cover up the rebound. Straight forward and simple stick.
With the P31 (mid open), this blade is a bit more FUN but can get you in trouble if your careless and not familiar with how the puck will behave. The P31 has the blade tilted BACK so the puck it looking to go UP when it hits the blade. It's nice when you butterfly and hits the stick and then goes into your chest or over the net but it you get stuck "reaching" to your left or right or way out in front of you . . . it's possible to roof it into your own net, hardly ever happens but yeah, it does . . . if you really have to reach out there. Poke checks suffer because of this but I don't do a lot of poke checking and I DO like the P31 because you can easily take a shot from the circles and PUT the puck into the opposite corners OVER the glass. No better feeling than doing that and NO rebounds. Again, it take some time and good timing do this but when I've tried it with the P39 it just doesn't happen. The P39 wants to keep the puck in front of you so you can cover up.
As for longevity of the stick. I play once a week sometimes twice. One is a C1 league and the other, is just for fun with the same group of guys. I've had the stick last a full year! That's somewhere around 60-65 games for $130 stick ($2 a game) Good or bad you decide. The stick will chip and yeah a skate blade it going to peel the pretty paint off of it when someone crashes the crease but this is Ice Hockey folks not fine china.
