Both look like great sticks, I've heard nothing but good reviews for both, but now its time to hear from people who've had experience with them. Which do you like better and why?

Well I'm looking for sticks in the $80-$100 area. Perhaps I could find some prostocks within that price, I'll check around.

Default Should I...

.. Trade my Easton SC6 for a TPS Responce Armour Control (C4 i believe it is also called).

The TPS has been used for about 25hours and has been owned for 4 months, it is Perry curve and regular flex, cut short, which i found i liked yesterday.

The Easton in Int.65 flex, standard length, Sakic curve.

I like both having tried them, but if i do trade my Easton, how well will the TPS hold up in terms of DURABILITY?

Thanks!

It will last exactly 7.5 more days.


Seriously.. there's no way of knowing how long that TPS will last. 25 hours of use is a lot, but it all depends on how much it's been beat up, how many shots have been taken with it.. etc, etc, etc, etc.

My opinion: If the two sticks cost about the same new and they have had about the same use, then go ahead and trade if you want to.

EDIT: Oh.. and I think you could have stuck this in the "what stick should I get" sticky thread.

Yeah, both sticks are still pretty clean, about 3 chips/scratches on each.
And it was a quick post from School, i didn't the sticky thread because i was in a hurry in one of my IT lessons (so i could get replys before training tonight) sorry'bout that.

Default Official....and ONLY "What stick should I get??" thread

Hey all, I have been considering purchasing a intermediate stick lately and have been thinking of some questions that I am sure this board can answer.

First my stats: I am 5'6" and weigh about 175lbs. I play center and mostly use wrist shots and snap shots but will take the occasional slapper when it fits the bill. I generally use senior sticks (mainly Easton SL or SE) in an 85 flex. Also, I very rarely break sticks anymore.

The problem is that I have to cut them down five or six inches. I think the general rule of thumb is that every inch cut adds about five flex to the shaft. So my first question is, are intermediate sticks as durable and high performance as the senior models? I need a stick that has some pop behind the shots and not a wet noodle, but the 85 flex Eastons I use become very very stiff when cut down.

Is my train of thought wrong in thinking that if I cut down a intermediate Easton to my regular height that it would be closer to a true 85 flex for me? Also anyone in my boat have any input on how well the smaller sticks perform in regard to loading up shots and keeping the stiffness with any decency?

Thanks for any input.

shortening a 77 or 75 or TPS whip seems to be what you need, performance and durability don't always go hand in hand, For center, high end perfomance and durability are key I would recommend the bauer one90 77, or the r6 whip flex, both of those cut down 5 inches should play under a 90.

one question if i'm looking at blades and am wondering if the blade doesn't say which type of shaft it fits then does that mean that it fits both types of shafts???

I wasn't impressed with it in the slightest. 85 felt much stiffer than advertised, BOXY beyond belief, and I was not impressed with the feel or kick. I know guys that use it though and it has proven to be quite a durable twig though.
