Get the Dolo, its a much better stick. Not to mention 55flex is what little kids use. Im 160lbs and use 100flex cut to 105.

Trip,
How tall are you and how strong of a skater and shooter are you?

I'm a good skater and a pretty good shooter but I use a 77 flex Tone cut to 84 flex cause I am lazy.

The 55 flex may be too short as cdizzle has mentioned it is a kids stick.
The 70 flex might be a better fit for you, and the length should be around right too.

if you like the bentley then the warrior will be 100x the upgrade over that. i also started with the bentley and then went to a swizzle and now a dolo. doesn't feel like i'm dragging the stick around anymore

My gloves seem to get destroyed when I play roller hockey. I used my good condition 3 year old ice hockey gloves last year for roller hockey, and the palms ripped apart in the middle of my roller hockey season..does this happen to you guys?

What glove/type of palm are you using? What sort of tape do you use on the top of your stick?

I bought a couple of pairs of Bauer pro 4-rolls almost 3 years ago. I used to wear through top hand palm about every 1.5 years with my other low-mid end gloves. I was a bit concerned with the 4-rolls at first because the top hand palm seemed to wear thin after 1-2 months. But it hasn't gotten much worse since, and remains completely intact. Still on the first pair, and have a brand new pair waiting and ready to go.

I wear through the palm on my top hand as well. I have a bad habbit of holding the top of the knob with my palm as I skate towards the faceoff.
As the ref drops the puck, I will turn my hand and hold the stick normally.

But to wear out that quickly does seem a bit odd.

Are your palms double layered? I know on my SE16's and my last pair of cheapo gloves, the center of the palms had a second layer of material.

It feels as if mine are (Bauer X60:Pro). Even so, I tried adding a thin layer of tape to the palm/thumb on the top hand glove and it seems to work well. Doesn't affect feel much and replacing it every couple games appears to be extending its life.

So after getting my helmet cracked from a high stick a few weeks ago I finally got around to getting a new lid. Picked up an S19 for cheap. Thing is crazy light, can't wait to wear it now. Also picked up a bauer 7500 face cage to prevent any more blade toes from potentially gouging my eyeball out and anymore future stitches to the face. Can't say I'm too estatic about the cage but gotta get used to it now

the bauer pro rolls are sweet, but didn't you notice the padding in the glove gets really crusty/ flimsy after about a year? the palms are great, but when the gloves are new they are so soft and cushiony, but after about a year its basically 1/2 the softness

^The palms are stiffer than brand new for sure but still quite soft overall. I've had CCM and Mission gloves about 6-8mos old where the palm would totally harden and crust up when dry. I think leather just looses its suppleness over time. I'm just thrilled they are still in one piece!

I haven't noticed any issues with the padding on the glove though, aside from the inner liner padding getting thin. It wasn't thick to begin with, and doesn't really do a whole lot protection wise.

Did you happen to try on the S19 before buying it? It's pretty much for one type of head-shape- there are no really no adjustments being a one-piece shell.

Yessiree I did. Originally settled on a S13 but my friend had a new one sitting around and sold it to me for $70. The only adjustment for the s19 is the neck lock at the back. I did try it on at THS and didn't fit nicely at first but the guy did bring it up from downstairs and it was ice cold. Once it warmed up to room temp it started to fit better. Then I tried my friend's and it fit way better the the one at the store.

I hate shopping for helmets. Most times I find my head doesn't really need the front/back adjustments, but side to side adjustment in the shell would be great since the top of my head is more flat. If I get a larger size helmet to fit the width, then its too big front/back even with adjustment.

I'm using a low end heavy Rbk 4k right now because it fits me comfortably, the 5/6/7/8k and my head don't work. I've recently found the S17 to work ok as well but they are discontinued and I don't need a new helmet yet. The S13 and S19 don't work at all for me.

S17 is garbage. I'd pick the S13 over that. Its heavy and very narrow and it hurts the back of my head. The only helmet I came across with side adjustment is the easton E700/600. But the real shipment for most shops is 1-3 months away. But I hear you! I spent 2 weeks trying on helmets after my stitches came out.
