ABS blades are by far the best for street hockey. We've tried wooden and composite blades on the street, and it isn't pretty. Composite will chip and crack away. Wood will wear down fast and splinter. Using tape is a waste of time. One slapper and its gone.

I bought this thing called the 'Rocket Dryer' at Ice Level Sports last month. Considering i have had many issues in the past airing out my gear in my storage locker at my apartment, and in my garage at my house....

This item is very space saving, and portable so you can even take this with you on ski trips.

My gear is dry and odor free in 45 minutes. Definitely worth my $100

Selling off a couple extra pairs of Canucks gloves I have (T1's and X60s.) Gloves have been tried on at home but never used on the ice. Looking to recoop some money from the mid-season equipment sale.

I have two Oakley Pro Straight with vents (924) and some Bauer pro straights. Looking to sell the 924s off first. Not sure if any of this is of interest to you guys.

Both gloves are 14". Looking for $200 on the Total ONEs (they are Hank/Danny's.) Bought them on an absolute impulse... I might keep the X60s, not sure yet.

I'm looking for a new stick for ice. I really like the dolomite, but want to try a different brand. Anyone product experts give me any advice?

I rock a Dolo 2 piece, and I've tried a few other sticks from teammages (APX, Total One, One95, Kronik, ST, SE16, AK27, Dolo one-piece)

Nothing really beats the Dolo in terms of shot pop to me except the one95 and to a lesser extent, the TO. The one95 was an awesome stick though- slap shots were automatic. And that puck feel

I actually found the APX to be too light. Puck feel was ok though.

Price to performance though (if you're on a budget), the dolos are hard to beat.

I know. The problem is that I'm too much of a cheapass to buy one locally when I can get 2 online for the same price. Sucks that they don't have my curve anymore so now I gotta go find a different curve Was thinking of a Supreme stick, but I NEVER take slappers and all I do is wristers. Considering trying the old x40

What curve did Warrior drop? Bauer added a bunch of new curves so maybe there's something close with Bauer?

The TOne is a good stick for pretty much everything. Wristers will be solid. Snappers just won't be as quick off the stick or with as much pop as a low-kick stick like your dolo. If I had to choose a current stick that isn't the dolo, I'd probably go TOne.

To be fair, I haven't tried the new Easton Mako or the RS, though I hear horror stories about the RS durability.

They are all different in their own unique way. The RS is a really good stick for people who loves their wrist shots.
Durability is poor. I went through 2 RS's in 3 months. First one broke in the middle from a slapper after 2 months of use and then the warranty stick broke in the middle from a slash as I was reaching for a loose puck.

What curve are you looking for?

I'm waiting for my blade to break/go soft so I can try a Gionta. Though a touch open and it would be my dream curve. I've never used a toe-curve before.

Damn SE16 blades and their durability

For anyone wanting info on the mako..best stick I have used hands down. Like the RS, it tends to get whippier over time. I use a 75 flex and was spot on at first, now it feels about a 65-70 which I personally don't mind it at all. Shaft of the stick has held up WAY better than what I expected..nothing major other than the white paint coming off from slashes. The blade is where the problem begins. The toe of the blade is splitting right down the center and continues to get larger after every game. I'm trying to preserve the stick for as long as possible since I don't have warranty on it anymore but i feel the blade will eventually go sometime this summer

just a little review if anyone was interested in buying one. Don't let my story deter you from getting one. Like I said, best stick I have used and I've tried many sticks (S19, x60, widow, eq50, friends RS)

May i ask how many games you've played with it? How far in did you start to notice the whip increase, and blade splitting? Do you tape the toe?

I find the blades of my sticks last longer if i tape them up well. I always go from heel to toe leaving no part exposed. Really helps to prevent chips and cracks.

Got my APX (85 flex) as a gift in January and have used it for atleast 25-30 games since (maybe more), still going strong. I take occasional clappers but mostly snaps and wristers. Havent noticed much wear at all to be honest. I try and flex my blade every so often to feel for wear but its still holding up very well along with the shaft.

Is the Mako the SE16 successor? If so I'd be interested in getting one. Picked one up in store the other day- it's nicely balanced. Feels much better in hands than the APX.

Just an fyi, the hockey shop has Luongo stuff on sale for 50% off.
I was tempted to buy a jersey to wear when I'm playing for fun. $80 for a #1 jersey with Lu's name isn't bad. As long as I can unstitch the name.

Yes...sorta, EQ50 replaced the SE16, and Mako replaced the EQ50 more or less
