    Hey ...

    I was just wondering what stick is the best for road hockey ? I'm thinking of getting a stick for road hockey so I dont have to risk breaking my ice hockey stick. Or is it the same for ice and road ? :dunno:

    I'd get something cheap, the road will ruin a blade quickly.

    Get a two piece. Composite shaft, wooden blade. When the blade wears out, replace it. It's what I do, and it ends up costing less than buying a brand new stick whenever the blade wears out.

    ABS Blade...that's all you need. Whether you get a wooden stick or a shaft/blade combo make sure the blade is made of ABS plastic. Easton makes a decent stick that's only about 15 bucks. I think it's called "ultra abs" or something.

    Wooden blades will wear out really fast and start chipping on the bottom for road hockey, ABS just wears away, no chipping.

    Yup, I went through at least 3 wood blades before I tried out the ABS P2 Jokinen. It's slowly wearing down after like 2 years now but pieces of the blade will never chip off or break. Highly recommended for ball/road hockey because of its incredible durability.

    I suggest you go with a shaft and blade combo. I would look into getting a cheap shaft as well unless you plan on using your ice shaft (if you have one). The Easton Octane is a great and cheap (20 bucks) shaft with decent performance. If you haven't already, read my post above and that should help you out.

    get one of the CCM blades.

    regular ABS blades suck like nothing else. really heavy and really brittle. if someone steps on it, it snaps right in half.

    for some reason the CCM ABS/texalium blades are really strong, light and pretty durable.
