For what you pay, it is a pretty good product. This is a high end head with a lower end shaft. If you are looking for the higher end shaft, look for composite and not alloy .With the shaft being cheaper it makes getting the complete stick more affordable. The pocket and hold is awesome. This stick''s awesome hold feels almost like a boys sick. It is super light. All my teammates comment on the weight. My head did crack at one point and I sent it in to get a replacement. Overall it has been a great stick and I would highly recommend.
