Comments: Most people like me can't afford a $200 stick. At $80, slightly more expensive than entry level sticks, this offers great value. It feels very light, and the P87A curve cups the puck well enough for stickhandling. The mid kick allows you to rip some good slapshots, and rifle quick snap shots. Also like the grip on the shaft. Its been durable so far, but if I break it, I'll be getting another.

Comments: Good value. Durable. Great for slappers. Have taken over 100 slap shots and no blade fatigue. I prefer mid kick, so this stick is right up my alley. Would like to see a non grip version.

From: Simon, Canada
Comments: good stick had it for 2 years and i just brok it amd i am geting 2 new ones
Comments: Very thin sock, but quality is lacking in material and elastic. I would not buy these again. The Under Armour socks are a better value and the Drymax (if you're ok with thicker socks) are significantly better in quality.
Other Items to Consider
The Alkali CA5 hockey stick is a solid, mid-range stick from the new roller hockey specific company, Alkali Hockey. The difference between this stick and the CA9 is the use of VDC carbon fiber weave which will increase the strength and durability of the stick without sacrificing weight and feel. It still features the same anti-slash protection and vibration dampening core blade for precision control. The senior stick is available in 85 and 100 flex.
