    I would prefer to still use the wood Bauer 3030 sticks but about 4 years ago Bauer started making there wood sticks like 4 inches shorter and that was rattling for a lengthy son ******. Im your basic duster turned sniper in beer league. But I miss my sticks if anyone can find them for me I will pay you 1 billion dollars. Lindros curve please.

    Bauer doesn't make any wood sticks anymore I don't think.

    Buy these instead:

    I still use the Coffey wood sticks. I have never been able to use the graphite, composite or whatever they are made of now-a-days. They all feel too light in my hands. I buy as many of the Coffey sticks as I can for fear that they won't be around much longer. I originally liked the stick for it's length (when I started playing it was the longest stick I could find). I am not a shooter...I am a defensmen's defenseman, so liked the reach the stick had for poking and sweeping

    Been playing now for about 16 years, and played a bit as a kid in the 70's. Have always used Bauer skates (started with 1000's in the 80's, 4000's in the 90's and now have the Vapor X5.0's)

See how it goes and gauge it for your next set. Comfort is everything though the skates won't make you a good skater, a good skater is a good skater no matter if he's in $200 skates or $800 skates. I've seen guys that still love their old Bauer 4000's so much they bought two or three pair of them so they wouldn't be without them, and they skate as well as anyone.
    hey...that was me! till I wore out my last pair...getting used to the stiffer composite skates is like relearning!! Frustrating!

    Ive not done inline, but as far as I have been told, the boots themselves fit exactly the same as their iceskate counterparts. So if you wear a vapor ice boot, you should probably start with that. If you can, go to a store and try some pairs on.

    I've never played ice hockey before either - i'm completey new to actually playing the sport. I'm 18 and have been a fan of the sport since I can remember. What got my intrest was floor hockey, currently playing it at school and im not bad at it but I want to take it to the next level. I'm gonna take your advice though and go to a store and try some on, thanks.

    Are you looking for an indoor pair for a league? Or just any recreational pair?

    Broke one of my synergys last week on a pass. A PASS! Just picked up a CCM U+ (Ovechkin curve) one-piece. Pretty dirty stick. Got some nice stick handling with a wicked clapper. Saucer passes like a dream. Still haven't found the kick point on wrist shots though. Seems to either be at waist height or 2 feet over the net on wristers. Kinda why I usually stick to pretty straight blades, I know when to release it on wristers.

    I started playing last year and have some Bauer vapor 2.0s they aren't bad for $100. I'm going to look at a better pair soon probably some reeboks with pumps

    I started with Vapor 3.0s over the summer, and they work great still. I'll likely get some high end boots once I can afford them.

    Scored a goal tonight with an S17. Those are at least 2 years old now, right?
