    Busch is a swiss company that produces one-piece composite sticks.
    They also created a new material in cooperation with the ETH Zürich and EPFL Lausanne.

    Here you can create your own stick

    The interesting thing for me is, that they make a senior stick with 70 flex and i plan on buying it. But befor i do that, i wanted to ask if somebody has experience with their products. So, does anybody of u own a Busch stick or know anything about this brand?

    Edit: Here's a pressrelease about the new material:

    I remember these sticks in the late 90s/early 2000s. I had a chance to demo one and loved it but the price at the time was out of my range. Being that it was over 10 years ago, I can't give a good review.

    So they're making sticks again? I might have to look into this. I'm kinda hung up on my se16 but I know there's been about 3 easton releases since the 16 so I know eventually there's gonna be a limited supply.

    I didn't see a senior 70, only an 85.

    I found this one at a local store: http://www.chip-hockeyshop.com/product.php?productid=1873&cat=4&page=2

    I think i need a new steck in the next season. I'm currently using a 87, cut down to 95, flex stick at a height of 5"6' and 130-140 lbs. It was my first season so i just took the cheapest stick.
    Would you recommend a senior stick with 70 flex or would a int stick do the job ?

    At your height and weight an intermediate would probably get the job done just fine.

    Thx for the reply. I'm going to buy a INT stick. Can you recommend me a Int stick for under 100.- ?
    I saw some actions and am deciding betwenn a NBH VAPOR XXII/IX or a Salming Matrix/Evolution/Diablo. Can anybody recommend me any one of these sticks? I'm looking for a stick which is durable. It doesn't have to be a high performance stick.
