I think since you play roller, the stick should hold up well. Also there iamb much of a difference in durability from the SE and the S17 so I would try it if I were you. Maybe if u know someone that has one try it out.

Felt the U stick tonight, felt really good with awesome balance. One thing I noticed though was the endplug had a hole in it and wasn't solid like conventional endplugs. Wouldn't it give it a hollow feel?

might be worth checking out a tps whip flex or a nbh 77 flex. that's what i used last season when i was about the same dimensions as you.

Anyone have any experience with the IIHF prostocks?

I plan on purchasing Czech Rep. stick with a D-15 curve.

I know getting prostocks can be unpredictable but all the damage to them is cosmetic right? Nothing that jeopardizes durability or anything?

Edit: Also, since they're rbk 7k's, do they have the same specs as the rbks such as weight, balance, etc.?

Pro stocks are just un used sticks made for the pros. There should be nothing wrong with them at all.

occasionally you do find the odd nick or scratch on a pro stock from the shipping

I am really close to buying an R6, but I want to make sure it is a good stick. I read all sprees great posts on it and am a fan of TPS. I have a Response armor stick right now but it is wearing down. Ive heard mostly good reviews on this stick, but the bad ones worry me. I read some bad reviews like it messes up your slapshot, and my slapshot is pretty bad so I dont want to mess it up anymore. I don't really know if I should buy it anymore. Thanks for the help.

Specific curves that you are either not used to, or don't use proper form can adjust the effectiveness of your slap shot.....but no stick should truly screw it up. Some sticks are just better than others with a good hard slap shot. Out of my experience.....my best slap shots are taken with either a R6 or a One90.

Tkachuk is a great curve, as it can do everything in hockey well. Nash is a more rounded curve with an open toe which will help you elevate the puck but it will hinder your back hand. Personally.....with the kids that I coach I always have them working with a flat curve like a Tkachuk or a Forsberg as it will truly teach you correct form and technique for everything that is involved in hockey.

What about the Perry Curve?? I use a nash curve right now, but before that it was mostly forsberg and straight curves. How much curve does the Perry have? Also, I can't decide what flex to buy. I need a stick to be about 55-57 inches in length (chin to nose). I am using an int flex right now, but i might move into a Whip. What would the final flex be if i cut 3-4 inches off of a whip flex?? I am leaning towards an intermediate because the stick I have right now TPS C4 is the first int stick I have owned, the rest are juniors. What I noticed when I got the Int stick is that the shaft seemed to be bigger (bigger circumference/perimeter). Is this true to all Sticks as you move up jr/int, int/sr, or is this just stick specific. I have held other teammates sr sticks and did not think that they were thicker.
Thanks for the help!
