Hockey stick is good for street hockey

Post by eugeniya » Wed May 18, 2011 1:37 am

What kind of hockey stick is good for street hockey? I am planning to play street hockey (on CEMENT) and wanting to buy a decent stick at a good price. My question is what kind of a stick is the most DURABLE and LONG LASTING for playing on cement?

I would just use a plain old wooden stick, Either that or an aluminum shaft with a wood blade.
If you go the composite way, they cost a lot more and you will cry each time you break the shaft.

Wooden sticks are used for street not aluminum. Most street leagues actually prohibit aluminum sticks, so your best bet is a wooden stick and preferably a koho if you're just starting out. My first stick was a koho ultimate and it was amazing.

find a wood stick with an ABS blade. ABS blades last longer and are designed for street hockey...

Any wood stick will do just fine, there so cheap now a days its not worth worrying about long lasting or durability since you could go buy a replacement blade for like under 10$.
But i wouldn't recommend one-piece composite sticks for street hockey. Waste of money. Wood sticks will probably have the most life, or if you don't like the feel of wood sticks just get a two piece composite stick (z-bubble, synthesis, response, etc) with a wood blade. That should work. I'm not sure if they even make z-bubbles or synthesis' anymore, they probably have a different name for them now.
