    I couldn't see the link - it had an error.

    I would say stick usage is really a matter of personal preference. I am assuming the floor you would be on would be a typical wooden floor for basketball. On a surface like that, you don't have to worry about stick wear, so you have a lot of options.

    The only stick I would say to stay away from (in terms of quality of play) would be the kind with a Mylec-esque replacement blade that doesn't have good stiffness. When you work with those sticks, your shot is distorted by the amount of flex in the blade.

    Yeah, that's the link I meant to post being on my iPod messed it up I guess.

    Do you guys know if I'd be able to use it on a school gym floor?

    why are you asking us? you should ask the gym teachers/custodians to see if they'll allow painted blades on the floor. Generally if it can mark the floor, then no go.

    I don't know if I like the blade on it. It would certainly work, but I always liked a Koho Revolution.

    As I mentioned earlier though, it is really a matter of preference. I think that stick (The Bauer) wouldn't have any problem on any gym surface. I don't think it'd mark it up, but obviously, you'd have to try it out.
