decent enough, cheap shaft
This shaft will get the job done. It''s cheap, and the metal is strong enough to stand up to tapping the goal post to position yourself without denting. It''s lighter than the cut down STX AL6000 d pole that I was using before. It''s not the lightest shaft ever, but your arms won''t fall off after holding it for a game. It''s a smooth grip shaft, so you''ll have to tape it for rain games, but that''s not a problem. It''s a great shaft for the price, especially for a back-up goalie like me.
