Good for beginners
If you are someone who is just starting to get in to roller hockey, as I was and still kind of am, this is a great stick. It feels good in the hands, it has good control of the puck, and its pretty durable. The problems I began noticing as I became more familiar with hockey and used it more and more were it has very little flex, and the blade gets worn down quickly from dragging it on the ground because it is just ABS plastic. However, there are replacement blades made by MYLEC that are cheap and some are made out of composite material. Overall, if you are beginning to get into hockey, I would recommend this stick.

Great driveway stick for the money
By Amazon Fan
My son and I use these to play hockey on our driveway. The old sticks we were using had a straight blade so you couldn't grip the puck easily for shooting. These on the other hand are molded for lefties or righties so they feel much better when playing. I use the 53" version (I'm 5'9") and he uses the 43" version (He's 4'1"). There's a little extra length in the shaft so it should last for a few years before he outgrows it or it wears out. The plastic material used for the blade seems very durable and like it will last a long time. The wooden shaft too seems well made and durable. If you are looking for an inexpensive option to play street hockey, these are great.

Great stick for street hockey, worth every penny
By Jack Hart
This stick is exactly what I was looking for, something I could use to play with my young son in the driveway. I'm 5'10" and this stick fits me just about perfectly. If I was over 6', I am thinking it would be maybe too short. It is well constructed, and I've beaten on it enough now to be fully satisfied. It's a substantial stick and I was able to mold the blade to my exact preference, although right out of the box it was actually pretty darn nice. The price was right, the shipping was very fast, and I honestly could not be more satisfied. (Incidentally, do yourself a favor and order the Franklin Roll-A-Puck with this while you are at it. That product is just amazing, feels like a puck, rolls like a ball. Ingenious. The only downside is - it hurts like a puck too!)
