    Hey all, I am thinking about creating a website and database of hockey stick measurements to help players. I made a post about it in this forum, but thought I should link it in this stick thread as well. Let me know if you think its a would be useful, a waste of time, or anything else!

    Equipment: - Any interest in a hockey stick database?

    Bauer officially releases Nexus ADV, or the stick with a hole in the blade we’ve seen some NHLers using. I’ve seen Jake DeBrusk, Pierre Luc dubois and William Nylander use it.

    Any advice on getting a stick for floor hockey. We play in a school gym. I use this stick: CCM Street Hockey Stick but I feel like with the wooden shaft it's too heavy to stick handle well.

    Unfortunately composite and wooden blades are not allowed. Also no slapshots, so my options seem pretty limited when going to Sportchek/Canadian Tire.

    Some advice needed on sticks. I am not a big guy -- 5'8" / 165lbs -- but I have been breaking sticks with regularity. The cracks start either at the heel or the hossel after just 3-4 hours of use. I've tried Bauer and CCM sticks. I use an 85 flex, which I need cut down a few inches so effective flex is 95. I've had 3 sticks break in 2020 alone.

    Am I using too stiff of a stick?

    From your size, my opinion is, yes you're using too stiff a stick. BUT, I'm not so sure it's the reason your sticks are breaking. Though, if you're slamming the heel of your stick down like a hammer in an attempt to flex your stick when you shoot, because you can't flex it any other way, that could explain why cracks start at the heel.

    For reference, Gaudreau is 5'9 165lbs and uses a 55 flex in the NHL. Ovi uses an 85 flex and Matthews uses an 80 flex, both are 6'3 and 235lb and 223lbs respectively. You're 7 inches shorter and at least 58lbs lighter, not just in mass but probably in muscle, and using an 85 flex.

    What’s the best type of kick to use for Roller/Floor Hockey? Mid kick vs Low Kick?

    Funny. I’m old school and still use the PMP Sherwood woody. I’ve tried the high tech sticks and always go back to my Sherwood. That and they are 40 bucks
