    Umm, no, it is not absurd. Woodies may be cheap, but they get as limp as a wet noodle after a few games while composites either do not lose stiffness at all, or very little. I also do not agree that woodies are better balanced, and I really don't know what this "low-friction" you are talking about is. Finally, my one-pieces (each of which I bought for the price of two or three woodies on ebay) have lasted me an average of a year each, which makes them not only better-performing, but more cost effective than woodies as well.
    Whole heartedly agree with this statement. I been using a warrior dolomite and innovative 1100 tapered both have last me long times and totally worth the price.

    other than sandpaper, i'm not sure how you're going to get rid of the grip on the shaft. i bought a grip shaft that i didn't like and i am just living with it until i get a new stick one day. but the way i'm going through sticks, it might take a few years. i've had my synergy for 3 years now and it's still as good as new. my two dolomites haven't given me any problems so far. that's what i love about composites.

    oh yeah, you could try tacki mac grips and see if you like it. but it could be even grippier than you like.

    Some sticks have grip by a plastic layer which can be peeled off the stick. Some sticks grip is sprayed on which is the need for a fine sand paper.

    me too

    I'm 6'5" and its a bitch to find sticks that are long and don't need much of an addition.

    Quick update - I opted for some scotchbrite instead of sandpaper. It was less abrasive and takes more work/time but seems to be giving me a better result. I can work the surface and degrade the friction of the crap they sprayed on. The stick still has a little grip and I want to check that out before I take it all off.

    I was going to play with it today but I didn't get myself onto the list to play this morning. The rink takes phone-ins to save a spot starting at 8:30 and if you don't call by 8:45 your usually SOL. I got in late last night and forgot until 10 so maybe I'll try tonight at DU instead.
