    So I am incredibly pissed that Nike has decided to take the 3030 out of production, seems every stick I like ends up going out of production. Now I need to find another wood stick sold in the Lindros pattern to use. I've been looking at the Bauer Fusion sticks and wanted to know if anyone here who has used one could give me a review on it.

    I haven't played with any new nbh sticks as I'm a composite user but I've played around with the one40 and it's incredibly lightweight. I hear the durability is questionable for the blade but other than that i hear good things.

    I don't think Bauer make wood sticks anymore. Sherwood 9950 would be the closest as it's carbon reinforced wood.

    Check out the stick guide sticky up top, might help answer some questions.

    Thanks. Not looking for a wood stick. Want to find a composite that has similar characteristics as the 3030. I just bought an x60 and while it's nice and light, decent for wrist shots it doesn’t have same pop for slapshots like the 3030.

    For puck feel, the One95 (long discontinued) and Warrior Dolomite DD 2011 (might find on sale) have similar feel.

    For some weird reason, I have people come to me and say that these guys : http://www.icewarehouse.com/descpage.html?pcode=SW53C

    do a great job replacing their old wood stick. Maybe it's the placebo effect because I have no idea why.

    Look out for the Bauer Nexus 1000 stick with a mid-kick point that is supposed to mimic wood. If you want a performance stick with a wood feel, perhaps you can give that a try when it comes out.

    Grew up playing with those sticks for nearly a decade. Miss those sticks as much as I loved em. Found a LHS in a small mountain town couple years ago. Gave a guy 100 for 10 of them, amazing sticks for feel but blades never lasted longer 3 months for me.

    I've seen in the Bauer catalog that they make woodies but only sell them in europe. Seems like you would have to know some people to get your hands on these twigs anymore....

    ebay is prolly your best bet, but 95% of them will be used.

    The APX has a pretty woodlike puckfeel, but the kick is low, so not woodlike. I agree with AIREAYE, the Nexus line is probably going to be your best bet once it's released.

    Yeah when I was using them regularly I went through at least 3 a season. I still have a few lying around that I use for road hockey.
