For the money it dents way to easy. I have had two recently and both dented within two games of play. I bought the 2nd one thinking maybe it was just a rare occurrence on how the defender hit it on follow through, but same thing happened with the 2nd one. Was not happy. will not buy this one againPros:
Feel and lightness, Those things are great. the adjustable butt-end is a nice add as well. better than tape method.Cons:
Strength. Should not dent that easy, especially if it is supposed to be a high level stick, it must handle high level defenseman checks. Maybe this is better for U13 and below, but for that money U13 players probably don't need to spend that much.
