Anyone use one? Opinions? How are their durability?
Saw some for $35.00 today.
If they are like the wood versions I would say average at best. I had some wood Montreals a while back and I would snap them in two on a hard shot. I have since gone to composite sticks but I found the quality to be a little less on Montreal sticks.
What are you a 7'0 300lber? I used montreal wood for years and never managed to snap one and im hard on sticks. The only gripe i had ever heard about montreal was the price. The montreal composites arent too bad especially at $35 a pop. When it comes down to composites its all personal preference
I useD the wood ones. Durable and I have a better point shot with them. Bought 3 for $25 in Chicago. All kinds of cheap.
At $35.00 a whack I'm gonna at least try one out. I was spending almost that on blades.
I'm still a bit hesitant with one piece composites. I don't want to spend a ton of cash on one and break it a month later. But man, I do love the way they feel.
Thanks for the feedback.
where did you see them? online?
A shop in my area has them. They have a few locations across New England, but don't sell anything online. I got my Louisville TPS rubber response there for $60. I'm kicking myself for only buying one. Pretty much buy all my stuff there and have for about 10 years now.
