    Datsyuk's been using one for a while now.

    I heard it's going to be $260.

    I don't see holes at the flexpoint catching on at all. It's going to break there like all sticks do and everyone's going to chalk it up to the holes, right or wrong.

    Thanks everyone but I don't think I'll be trying to get this stick anymore. I'll stick with my Stealth.

    You shoot harder and have better feel, so why buy a composite.:dunno:

    release and durability. I go through a wood stick/blade every other game. The blade softens or breaks.

    Sure it has.

    Composite one-piece sticks give the shooter a faster release because the blade is stiff and doesn't flex. A wood stick is a constant flex and the blade flexes more - more lag but faster shot in the end.

    I even asked Al Iafrate this question and he totally agreed. And he was known to shoot the puck pretty well.

    Pure slapshots will be slower with a one piece composite then a wood stick. However Snap shots, Wristers, and especially one timers are all a lot faster with a composite stick. Call me crazy but ill stick with the composite.
