    I've used a wide variety of sticks (including the overpriced composites), but I always come back to this classic. Nice curve, good flex, classic design.

    You and me dissagree about everything. That stick is a peice of crap. It's light, I'll give you that, but they break very fast and lose their stiffness quickly. Aside from that, I can't stand the Coffey curve either. Just an FYI, it is an illegal curve.

    Yea, I've used a bunch of those 5030's and they are pretty weak. The flex goes fast and the blades aren't durable at all. Still the classic wood stick and it has good performance for its first 10 hours of hockey.

    The best stick I ever used was the Sherwood 9030 with the Coffey curve, and I loved it!

    Problem was, I couldn't find anymore after I broke mine!

    9950 is more durable. I'm Bonrda curve player, though.

    Good stick, I like the Modano and Yzerman curves also.

    Unfortunately I go through sticks at a wicked rate compared to other people. About five of those composite or metal shafts alone in the last four years or so.

    Big fan of the 7030 model in the Coffey curve. If indeed it actually is a 7030. Only complaint is the heal goes pretty fast, too fast for my liking.

    Actually, they last longer than any other wood stick I've ever tried, with the exception of the old Koho's (think Lafleur era). And the curve is NOT illegal, it is exactly 1/2 inch mid-toe curve. I shoot a LOT harder with a new Coffey Sher-Wood than I can with a Vapor XXX, I can tell you that! Plus, it's only about $25 US, so I can go through 7.5 of them to match what I would spend on the one-piece (which have WEAK curves, anyway).

    I'll stay with the tried-and-true wood stick, or at least a shaft/wood blade combo with the Sher-Wood Coffey pattern.
