Hey guys I was deciding which hockey stick to choose and needed some advice, maybe one of you guys can help me out. I play forward postion is centre. So the two sticks are Easton RS and Easton Mako. Which stick is better for wrist shots and quick snap shots. Any help would be great thanks! I have used other sticks as in reebok a.I and warrior swizzle. Swizzle was better for me rather then the reebok. What sticks do you guys enjoy the most?.

I'm not an Easton fan at all, never had any luck with them, either I just don't like the feel or they break easily.
Always been a fan of Vapors (I have an APX now) and the CCM U+'s (had a Johnny T Pro Stock, by far the best stick I've ever had).
If you like Warrios, I've had a few different models of the Dolomite, and they've all felt good and lasted a decent amount of time.

I use a Warrior Dolomite Spyne with a Draper curve (85 flex) and it's honestly the best hockey stick i have ever used. I've used all kinds of sherwoods, Eastons, CCM, and thus far the Dolomite Spyne is the best one i've used. It's super light, and so far it's been durable. I've had it for over a year, there's a little bit of wear and tear, but the integrity of the stick hasn't been compromised.
As for the Mako or the RS, i have heard good things about both, i played with a guy that had an RS last year and he spoke nothing but good things about it. This year one of my close friends bought a Mako and he has abused the crap out of it and it has lasted him well. He has a bomb of a slapshot, and after he got the Mako it seemed like his shot was harder. It's also a crazy light stick.
Look at reviews, if ya have the chance compare sticks in person. If I was to choose I'd take the RS.

Son, you must venture into the woods and find a young baby tree of just the right length. Then you must begin shaving your wood, slowly. Slowly shape it into a stick, and then it will begin to take shape. You will be able to play hockey with the empowerment that you made that stick from wood you harvested on the night of the 12th moon.

Either that or go in the store and get a feel for them, and read some reviews.

Best twig I ever had was the Bauer Supreme One95, too bad they don't make it any more. I've always liked Bauer's gear, the new Nexus seems pretty sick.

Sorry don't really know what stick you should use. Might lean towards the Rs as it sounds more like a scoring stick and the mako seems more like a possession and stick handling stick. (don't know if anything i just wrote made sense)

I just use under 100 dollar sticks. I am using the Bauer X:40 and it is ok (don't like rounded edges has to be square) and a Coffey woodie which i love for a backup stick

I prefer Bauer sticks, but if those are your only 2 choices, go with the RS.

If you want wrist shots and snap shots go for a low kickpoint stick like an RS. I'm not sure what the Mako is tbh but I know the RS is a low kickpoint. Bauer Vapors are as well.

Best stick I've ever used but I finally broke mine recently :sadno: . I have an Easton S19 and Warrior Dolomite Spyne as well but neither feel nearly as good as the one95. I don't think the S19 is a bad stick but it feels so different from the Supreme which I was so used to, can't seem to get much flex out of it. I can get a really accurate wrist shot with the Dolomite Spyne (Kovalchuk curve) but it is heavier than most high end sticks.

I love my One95. The best stick i've ever played with. You may still be able to find one at the sports exchange on Burrard and 4th.

Thanks for the tip. I had to quit using mine because I outgrew the flex, when I went to go find a stiffer version was after they quit making them. I ended up buying a Vapor X4.0 but it isn't the same.

Yeah I just got a Bauer Vapor like others said it's pretty good, it has a low kick point which is good for quick releases for your wrist and snap shots.

The two will certainly not feel anywhere near the same because the One95 has a much more concave shaft and it is more squared on the edges. The concavity of the Easton is much more subtle and it is more rounded on the edges. The flexes, weights and lies of the sticks are also likely different, which makes a huge difference.

This is why I always prefer to keep identical sticks as a backup. Switching to a totally different stick in the middle of a game (especially from one you are very accustomed to) can have a significant impact, usually one that results in cuss words after each shift.

I've played with and against guys who have the RS and all their shots are pretty hard. The only thing that is holding me back from purchasing one is the durability of it, I heard they break easily.

I would purchase the Bauer TotalOne
