  1. Hey I'm looking at a sherwood composite at costco in Ottawa. It's on for $60.

    I forget the model name, but is it going to be crap and not last?

    pretty sure here the response you're gonna get is " you get what you pay for". I bought a 70 dollar bauernike one piece from Canadian Tire. Its pretty durable but thats about it, im not into the feel it has.

    just bought a SHerWooD RM9 for 129CAD.
    all other sticks that i looked at were retailing for 249 CAD. It was a debate between the RM9 and the New Response Lite. The response had to be the lightest stick I have ever handled. But when it came down to bang for buck the Sherwood was the best bet. The SWD spezza curve is dirty.... AND i contributed the $100 savings to the rusty nails beer fund :D

    The RM9 is a nice feeling stick. I saw one the other day and couldn't believe it was only $120 US.

    Wonder how the durability of these sticks are.

    I have 2 RM7 momentum's in the Crosby curve. It took a bit to get used to coming from my wood sticks but I really like them now. Very light and great feel!

    Will let you know how mine works out.

    i will be playing my 2nd game with it tonight.

    After using a bauer for so long, it is hard to get used to a different stick...

    good feel, nice grip, good kick, lovely curve tho

    I have an RM9, two actually. I'd been breaking sticks like crazy, and for $120 USD, it is and unbelievable value. Good pop, great puck feel, and the sticks are absolute tanks!

    Where are you in the USA? The only place I've seen in the northeast is Pure Hockey.

    canadian tire sherwood stick

    I bought this stick also as a backup and wow, my shot is incredible with it. It's a bit hard to keep my shot low with the Coffey curve but I just shorten my follow through and put my hands a bit closer and it works.

    Can certainly zip off a wrister in a hurry with it eh? Though you are right, you need a half hour or so to get used to the Coffey curve (which I think is bigger than the natural Coffey curve Sherwood uses).

    Either way I'm going to pick up another one so I have a backup.

    When I find a stick I like, I tend to stick with it (no pun intended). I've only used three sticks in the last five years: Sherwood 5030 Coffey curve, Graf G3 and now this Sherwood.

    So far, this latest one is the best.

    I don't think this Coffey curve is legal though. I have not measured it but I wouldn't want the other team to call a stick measurement during a game!

    Most leagues don't have an illegal curve rule anymore. Canadian Minor hockey doesn't, at least not the league I coach in (Alliance).

    I just got a Response Lite and SE, I don't pay full price usually, and didn't for these. If you like that stick, and its in your price range grab it. I've always looked for good deals on E-bay or last seasons close-outs for sticks. I've had good luck with that and just getting lucky on forums and such.

    Six-foot, 180.

    So far so good, and I've put it through some pretty good tests. Spent quite a few hours just shooting and stickhandling to get a good feel for it.

    I should probably chop it down an inch or so, but so far so good.

    Sherwood just gave me an RM9 Crosby curve to sample after giving a presentation to my company, who is considering financing them. I haven't gotten it on the ice yet, but it feels like a nice stick. I'll let you know what I think.
