Default first one piece

Hey guys I'm about to purchase my first one piece stick but can't afford a 200 stick. Currently I'm looking at the dolomite spyne and vapor x60. I currently use o one95 shaft n blade. I love it but its really the only stick I've ever used. Thanks for any input in advance.

Oh the vapor is about fifty bucks more than the dolo but in my price range. Is it worth that price difference?

You can get pretty damn good OPS for $100-150 now. I thought the Easton 65S and 75S both felt great for their prices ($99 and $149), and this is coming from a guy who has typically always used top of the line stuff.

A ton of my friends use Sherwood T90's and the Nexus and they all love them.

To be honest, a one piece stick won't feel much different at all than your 2-piece One95.

I've been back and forth between OPS and shaft/blade combos and they worked the same for me. I'm currently using a 2-piece for the forseeable future.

If you like the shaft/blade combo, don't change. Save the extra dough and keep using what has worked. Best player on my adult league/beer league team uses a damned wood stick by Sherwood (Coffey pattern) and he refuses to use anything else and he has an absolute cannon of a shot. If it aint broke, don't fix it.

The shaft/blade combo is a solid one, but look for a middle of the road price on a top of the line stick from last year.
