performance level roller hockey sticks

Recommended Posts

So its really nice to see roller hockey getting a little bit nicer quality sticks with abs blades. In the past ive tried a few different composite/abs sticks with my favorite being sherwoods t25 (i think... either t25 or 35). Has anyone had a chance to try out some of the newer options?

I continue to use a two peice with abs outdoors.  Indoors I use the same model stick i use for ice hockey. I tried a one peice with abs blade from ccm and alkali.  Honestly I think my old warrior shafts with the abs blades from Sherwood are lighter and more responsive.

i used to have an older synergy shaft with a reebok blade and i loved it but i havent had a two piece in a long time and i just think changing the blade is such a chore. I have been considering it though. Have you tried any of the newer sticks? IW has a few sticks that look really promising.

Nothing newer than two years old.  I dont mind changing blades grew up in the aluminum era.   Takes about two minutes.  I honestly cant justify a 50 dollar or more stick. I will wear out in under a month out doors.  Blades are cheap in comparison.  Just my two cents.

I have done it in the past but i dont know how common it is to just chop the blade off a stick. not that i have a stick i would want to chop right now, but if thats a relatively normal thing to do i will end up just buying a stick then chop it and replace the blade once it wears. I dont get that much play time to be honest so my blades dont actually wear out super quickly.

Then it may be worth it. We play outdoor at least a couple hours a week if not more. My shafts are made for replacement.  A couple guys just use broken one peices cut the blade off and put the replace ment in the other end.

i just put this together. you play 10-13 hours a on a blade and change it? few hours a week of outdoor play and you said you replace almost monthly? What do you do to your blades man?

  We often play more than a couple hours several times a week. I also dont like when the blade is worn real thin.
