    My birthday is in a few months and I'm asking for one of these sticks. I'm curious on what the majority likes better. Personally I like the feel of the totalone but I also like the weight on the eq50's blade a lot.

    You should be more concerned about which LHS has your curve and flex preference first.

    I already know my flex (85) and the curve I want want for either stick (Kane or Hall/Sakic depends on the stick).

    The weights on the EQ50 are gimmicks, you won't notice them once you start playing unless you take out all the endcap weights. Why not go to a store and give them a feel instead?

    Alright thanks. I think I'm asking for the totalone espically finding out the weight on the blade is such "for show".

    I don't think anyone save for a couple players used the EQ50 in the show this season, and I've heard stories of the FWT breaking/falling completely out. But then again, if you like the feel of the EQ50 better, then by all means grab one.

    I'd personally go with the Bauer for the durability aspect.

    I myself am a Bauer guy but the majority of my hockey buddies rank Easton ahead of Bauer as the two top makers of sticks. I don't think you can go wrong with either.

    I would personally not have gone with either of them. I like the Rebook sticks much better, the rather low kickpoint and the shaft that is a bit thicker than others. But if I have to choose, I would go with the TotalOne. But it's you who are getting a new a stick, not me.
