    Default Youth Stick questions

    Hi everyone. My girl has been playing hockey for a year and a half now. She is finally really getting into it a lot and is now asking for a lighter stick like the one piece composites. Right now she is using a wood sherwood and I think it would benefit her to get a lighter stick. We looked at a few and ofcourse she likes the Warrior Widow which is $80. I found others for 40-60 dollars and would much rather spend that much on a stick im gonna cut in half anyway. The problem is that the Warrior has the more narrow shaft and the others have the standard shaft.

    Can anyone who has dealt with this before give some suggestions on which stick would be best or is it worth it to spend the money on the Warrior. Thanks in advance.

    Youth or Junior. Honestly I don't think she will notice much of a difference except her friends prolly have Warriors. They have cool graphics and they have done a great job marketing their cool products.Warrior started in Lacrosse and they along w/ a few other companies did the same type of marketing. They make a great product but her first stick... Try and find a cheaper one w/ cool graphics and seewhat she says.

    I didnt know about the marketing of Warrior. Its interesting. The funny thing though is the guy at the store asked her why she liked that stick and he thought she was going to say because its blue. Instead she said it is lighter and easier to hit the puck with it. Guess my girl knows hockey lol.

    All serious though I was hoping for some model suggestions. Though I think I might just order the one piece that was 40 bucks knowing it will most likely still be lighter than the one she currently has.

    I get my nephew youth sized wood sticks for $10-$15 and he has no problems. These are smaller than Jr. sized.

    He's used them since he was 6. I got them at hockey monkey. I had to cut them and when he (regularly) outgrows them, he gives them to my other nephew or to the neighborhood kids for floor hockey. The blade may even be ABS. Save the cash for a solid helmet or some Kings camp.

    CCM 252 Heat Multi-Lam Youth Hockey Stick for $15

    CCM U+02 Yth. Hockey Stick also for $15

    I agree with John on this.

    You can always buy the cheap one and have her paint her own design on the stick. That would let her personalize the stick and it would probably save you some cash.

    I skate with Combat sticks. They are by far and away the lightest stick I have ever used, and they're tough as nails. You can get them online in juniors for under $55. PM me if you want the where to buy info.

    But if its the logo/color that's going to do it for your kid, I think you're SOL. Spend the extra $20 and skip two beers at your next Kings game.

    What level, how old, what do the other players use? What does the coach say? This is a good time to buy closeouts. Check my times or tough thread or sign up for the news letters. If you go mail order try to get other parents in so you save on shipping.

    She is 6. and is in a early mites program but she is progressing to the point where i dont think it would be a waste to get her a new stick.

    Thanks for the info, i think ill go for the cheaper but composite sticks.

    I would check out hockeygiant or hockeymonkey for their sales. I bought my nephew a Bauer XXXX around Christmas for 30 bucks. He is 5 and it was a youth stick. I buy my son wood sticks for now cause they are cheap.

    My almost 5 year old uses a stick I carved from a tree. Plain wood baby with some old silver electrical tape on it. Booyah!

    No really, we got him a $20 cheapo stick. I mean, he's just learning. Its lightweight and easy for him to handle. I made sure to spend the money on decent skates, helmet etc. We still aren't sure if he's a righty or lefty so he's got a straight blade, although the more he uses it, it looks to be lefty. He just started termites so again, not too worried about a stick. At HockeyGiant he went right for Crosby's stick. Hefty price tag for that one.
