Easton Stealth S17 Ellipse Hockey Stick | Hockey News Easton Hockey, the designer and manufacturer of the No. 1 stick in the NHL, has introduced the Stealth ™ S17 stick.

The S17 is touted as the most technologically advanced stick on the market.   Already, NHL superstars such as Ottawa’s Dany Heatley, Minnesota’s Marian Gaborik and Anaheim’s Ryan Getzlaf enjoying the new Easton technology.

With the Stealth S17, Easton has produced the first elliptical design in the industry, according to Ned Goldsmith, vice president of Easton Hockey.

“There is no other stick like this in the world,” said Goldsmith. “As soon as you pick it up you can tell it is something special – not only because of the phenomenal balance, but because of the totally unique shape through the elliptical section. We can hardly make them fast enough.”

The Easton Stealth S17 focuses on three main qualities vital to every hockey shot: energy, velocity and accuracy. The compression molded process used in constructing the Stealth S17 delivers the most consistent shaft in hockey, maximizing the energy transfer from your hands to the blade and thereby providing a more powerful shot.

In addition, the innovative new TORX™ technology displays an Elliptical Profile (patent pending) to assist in transfering torque from your hands to the blade for remarkable velocity. Easton’s patented Micro-Bladder process and Multi-Rib structure control blade flex throughout puck contact ensuring pin-point accuracy.

Dany Heatley has this to say about the Easton Stealth S17:

“If I could hit a one foot corner of the net on a one timer before, I can hit a 6” corner now… I’ve never been more accurate or shot harder. I love it.”

You can get a great price on the new Easton Stealth at Hockey Giant.com.

  2. tommy on Wed, 10th Oct 2007 6:36 pm 

    Best…stick….ever…period. I want one sooooooooo bad!!!

  3. Tyler on Wed, 10th Oct 2007 10:08 pm 

    Tommy,
    It appears that there are a lot of NHL players using this stick. Many more than switched to the RBK 9K “O” stick if that tells you anything.

  4. Jon on Sun, 14th Oct 2007 4:04 pm 

    When will it be for sale?

  5. Jimmy on Sun, 14th Oct 2007 11:15 pm 

    Well off the topic but most of the ccm sponsered players (ovechkin, thornton,rechhi, and steen) have been using a new skate. Doesnt look like ccms.
    Anyone know what they are?

  6. Jordan on Mon, 15th Oct 2007 5:25 pm 

    Looks awesome.. does anyone know when us non-nhl’ers can get a hold of it?

  7. tommy on Tue, 16th Oct 2007 3:31 pm 

    yes, i know what they are. they are the new vector skates. theres no other company that would come out with a new skate already after releasing one. theyre are ccms.

    The new Stealth S17 is available november 4th but many online sellers wont get it until the 16th. I live in Minnesota and there are a couple of stores that sell it for way below retail. it’ll probably set online buyers back about $220 bucks, but at some retailers in MN I can get it for $169

  9. tibbs109 on Mon, 22nd Oct 2007 10:42 pm 

    I’m selling this exact stick in canada for $220, most places here sell it for around $300

  10. tibbs109 on Mon, 22nd Oct 2007 10:50 pm 

    The skates that CCM sponsered players are using this year are call CCM VECTOR 10.0 SE and they retail around $430US

  11. Ryan on Mon, 29th Oct 2007 9:52 pm 

    I’m playing with this stick right now, actually prefer the new CCM ovechkin stick, it feels more comffortbale in the slapshot

  12. Danny on Wed, 14th Nov 2007 9:31 pm 

    I’m an NHL player and I like the stick. It feels good when you stickhandle and it seems like it have me more power in my wrist shot. I like the way it feels when I take a slap shot too.

    dudes if your wondering how much it costs i saw jr. on a discount site for 179.99

  15. Tim on Sat, 24th Nov 2007 6:02 pm 

    i wish i could get one. My dad says get a job. Cant he lend money for the best stick ever.

  16. Ben Donaldson on Sun, 25th Nov 2007 2:13 pm 

    hey heatley broke his and i now have it

  17. tommy on Fri, 30th Nov 2007 6:58 am 

    i just hled one yesterday. its 100 flex, but if flexes like 85. its soooo light, 410 grams, and soooooooo nice. the kickpoint is a bit lower, but it seems that you can get the perfect shot off with it. too bad im getting two R8 sticks already. ALSO, IF THERES ANY NEWS ON THE NEW TPS R10 LINE, PLEAST POST!

  18. spencer on Fri, 7th Dec 2007 2:08 am 

    I just used one yesterday

    i only shot about 15 pucks with it, but this stick is amazing! the balance of the stick feels like nothing you’ve ever felt. the flex was perfect, even though it was 100, it felt like 85-90. The kick on your shots makes them so accurate and fast its unbelieveable. As for the shape, the elliptical is unique and gives the stick its amazing feel.

  19. jim on Sun, 9th Dec 2007 12:48 pm 

    sick stick im lookin into gettin one for about 190$ but i herd it breaks easy??

  20. tyler on Fri, 21st Dec 2007 11:41 am 

    i dont no whether to buy the s17 or the xxxx… i no a kid that broke three xxxx’s in one practice ….but i just want a stick that has a good combo for a wrist shot and slapshot….i play d-fence so i want a good slapshot…try and get back to me with your opinions!

  21. Peter on Mon, 24th Dec 2007 8:48 pm 

    its not the stick that gives u the shot buddy… why do u think the nhl players use all the new sticks? the manufacturer sponsers them and pays them to say good stuff about it, but the truth is if there was one stick that made a significant difference in their playing theyd all be using that one. they only do it for the money and because they know it doesnt really make a difference in ur playing

  22. billy on Tue, 1st Jan 2008 12:24 am 

    when are they going to sell this in the intermediate size????

  23. Vince on Fri, 4th Jan 2008 4:30 pm 

    It breaks easily. I know of 4, Squirt age kids , including my son, that have broken their S17 sticks. They all broke at exactly the same place.

  24. Shayne on Sun, 6th Jan 2008 2:11 am 

    does the stealth s17 get offered in 85 flex in the states right now?

  25. michael on Mon, 7th Jan 2008 6:57 pm 

    Peter you have no Idea wat your talking about

  26. Alex on Sun, 13th Jan 2008 11:51 am 

    Peter ur a joke show. the pros that dont use it arent because they are being paid to use the sticks they are using. and it deffinatly does help. do u actually think that the sticks do absoloutly nothing?! i cant believe u just said that.

    and i just got one and its THE best stick ive ever gotten. ive used it for 2 games…and i got a goal a game. just so u know peter

  27. brendan on Mon, 21st Jan 2008 5:44 pm 

    boys, im sad to say that my stick has i think broken in the blade:(

    it was such a good stick as wellllll!…but its in the inside of te blade

    so im not sure

    im just looking for a good price cuz i dont wanna pay 300 $ for it in canada,

  28. Alec on Mon, 28th Jan 2008 11:52 pm 

    I agree with peter. Sure the sticks they are coming out with may be a few grams lighter or have a new elliptical feel to it, but having one certain stick won’t make much of a difference in your stats or how you play at all. If you don’t have talent then you never will. No matter what stick you use. These companies are just smart and know what to say and what nhl players to pay to use their stick so that the general public will think it will make them play like Getzlaf, Heatley, or Gaborik. Hockey equipment companies are always going to come out with something bigger and better. Wait another month and there will be a more talked about stick than this one. I guarantee it.

  29. jake on Tue, 29th Jan 2008 9:15 pm 

    the stick dosent make a huge difference but it can make it a bit easyier to hit the sweet spot on the blade to get more consistant power in your shot and if the balance of the stick is good it just makes it that much nicer to shoot with. The S17 is coming out to a few stores in canada B.C on feb 1,4 or 5 in intermediate and junior this is what the hockey shop manager told me. i no the senior is already out and costs about $313 with tax and im prety sure the intermediate won’t be much cheaper myby $10 less but thats probly it

  30. jake on Tue, 29th Jan 2008 9:19 pm 

    i will be getting this stick the day it comes out in intermediate i have gotten a shop to put 1 aside for me. i have been looking at the sanior sticks for weeks just feelin them and testing them and its a great stick

  31. michael on Sat, 2nd Feb 2008 3:06 pm 

    bummer, the easton s17 first batch of junior size are all defective the bottom is to thin so it’s real easy to break that’s only on junior sizes and anyway these sticks weren’t supposed to be realesed till may, i broke mine on a pass. crazy anyways they’ll fix it and put it back out in may

  32. henry on Tue, 5th Feb 2008 1:31 am 

    when will the intermediate stick be released to stores in canada???

  33. larry on Fri, 8th Feb 2008 3:13 pm 

    best stick ever have 3 of them and gettinn another 2 2morrow

  34. steve on Sat, 9th Feb 2008 6:07 pm 

    this stick is junk!!!! I just bought one for my 11yr old son and he broke it in less then 10 min.s! For $194.00 he should have at least been able to get through a full game with it!

  35. vapor#1fan on Tue, 12th Feb 2008 3:35 pm 

    larry 1)you must be rich
    2) why do you need so many?

  36. Tanner on Wed, 20th Feb 2008 10:58 am 

    You guys are all full of shit…No one buys 4 $210 dollar sticks…get over yourself and just admit that you suck at hockey; you probably don’t even play. As for these sticks breaking on a common basis, I have also heard the same thing from a friend that works at a hockey shop. I don’t know what stick to get anymore…I’m leading toward the Easton Synergy Elite…

  37. Allan Cardinal on Thu, 21st Feb 2008 12:05 pm 

    My son had a synergy SE and SL. Both blades separated in halve less than a month. Not due to abusive wear as he pampered them. Poor quality. Easton’s response to my enquiry. Kids are paying hundreds of dollars for sticks that are endorsed by Pro’s. Unfortunately these sticks do not last for a reasonable time which is good for the company’s bottomline but not for the consumers. I like my son assumed that the SE and SL were a decent mid market stick, wrong, poor, poor, poor choice. It begs the question as to the quality of the other products.

    Easton response
    “Composite sticks are designed with an emphasis on performance, this does not mean that durability is sacrificed, but it is not the stick’s main attribute. The entire Easton line of hockey sticks and shafts offer many different qualities from entry-level sticks, designed for occasional use, to high-performance sticks for the experienced player looking for that extra “edge”. Should you feel that a composite stick is not offering the durability that your require, we would suggest considering an Easton hybrid stick, constructed of wood and composites that offers durability at a lower cost.”

  38. matt on Thu, 21st Feb 2008 4:34 pm 

    tanner…..get a vapor 40

  39. ben on Thu, 28th Feb 2008 10:56 am 

    hey i got an S17 for christmas and it broke at forty five days then i got another one and it broke in the second games using it. it is a great stick but it breaks way to easy and that is my fifth stick i have broken this year. 2 warriors 1 vappor xxx lite and 2 S17 stealths.

  40. Bert on Sun, 16th Mar 2008 9:11 pm 

    I recently had an s17 but the blade broke off. It is one of the nicest sticks I have ever used. Easton still hasent sent me my new one so i am currently with a vapor XXXX and it feels just like the s17.

  41. pat on Mon, 17th Mar 2008 11:23 pm 

    listen if u want a long lasting stick buy a synergy st

  42. dawson on Thu, 20th Mar 2008 9:40 am 

    i am 10 and i have broke 3 of them all inthe same spot. its an awsome stick but it breaks to easily. oh ya and bert the xxxx sucks

  43. Mike on Thu, 20th Mar 2008 9:18 pm 

    I bought my son a S17 Junior for his 13th birthday, and broke it 41 days later on a slapshot from the hash marks. This really pissed me off after spending $195 USD. Afterall this is the best stick ever made according to easton. I went to the store where I bought it and they told me sorry nothing I can do. Well lets see, for the past 5 years I have bought 3 pairs of high end skates, all the hockey gear on both of us is 95% easton. I called easton and the customer service rep wouldnt admitt there was a problem but I could tell by th tone in her voice that there was a real problem and she was quick to get me an RMA and its now in eastons hands. If easton dosnt step and replace this stick I will never buy another easton product. I will have a profound affect on the sales in my area. I coach PeeWees and Bantum B Travel, and our kids always ask what equipment should I buy I always suggest Easton, not anymore.

  44. ????????? on Sun, 23rd Mar 2008 11:36 pm 

    maybe you guys complaining about the junior size sticks breaking, should read one of the comments up above.

    michael says:

    “bummer, the easton s17 first batch of junior size are all defective the bottom is to thin so it’s real easy to break that’s only on junior sizes and anyway these sticks weren’t supposed to be realesed till may, i broke mine on a pass. crazy anyways they’ll fix it and put it back out in may”

    the first batch of the s17′s were defectice and i snapped one in the store just flexing it……… although i didnt have to pay for it because the owner told me they were all like that.

    gosh learn to read, and talk to easton about you problems and not us.

    this is one of the best sticks ever made and if the pros say it makes a difference in their shot, who’s to tell them otherwise… ur not in the nhl and you dont know crap. so back off.

  45. $$$ on Mon, 24th Mar 2008 6:51 pm 

    oh that explains why i couldnt find a junior s17 instead i got the easton synergy se..piece of crap..the heel of the blade after 5 uses got chipped up and split in half. now im in a bind cause next weak is nationals in PA and i dont have a stick..easton should stop their bitchassness and take responsibility to replace sticks that they say are good ones but in the end they suck..i shouldve gotten another stealth, the BEST stick ive ever used but they do break..snapped 3 in the shaft

  46. michael on Fri, 4th Apr 2008 5:02 pm 

    When i told u guys it was defective in junior size i ment it the intermiediate comes out pretty soon and the end is just thick enough that it won’t break. On greatskate.com they have a s17 in itermiediate for 199.99 $ usd. I’ve never used the stick but i heard it was pretty good in all of the senior sizes and hopefully it’s good for intermiedate. I use a easton SE I like it a lot. my first 1 broke in the blade the carbon fiber unraveled in 3 months. the 1 i’ve now hasn’t done that and i’ve had it for 6 months. when i took my broken stick to my proshop to ask them why it happened they said when you cut it the cut waasn’t even so it screwed things up. so he cut my stick even and it works fine. Anyways don’t buy an s17 for kids who can’t flex an intermiedate s17 because the intermie hopefully wont break in the same spot

  47. Josh Wood on Mon, 14th Apr 2008 6:20 pm 

    Amazing stick i got one a few months back my first shot with it at practice was one of the hardest and most acurate shot. In the video ad for the stick it shows pros goin post on every shot on purpose…im not as great as they are but if i can mimic something they can do im pretty happy with myself.
    It is a hole in the wallet but it was money VERY well spent

  48. Josh Wood on Mon, 5th May 2008 8:06 pm 

    Sometimes the younger kids just get to strong for junior/intermidiate sticks. Just looks at signs if your son starts breaking sticks like its cool it might be time to either get a higher flex or take it up to a senior….remeber sticks will always break

  49. Tim McGrath on Sat, 10th May 2008 2:38 pm 

    My son just went thru his third stick, he is 14 years old. He has used the three sticks for a total of 6 games. We had one replaced under warranty it broke the first practice on a wrist shot. Oh and this is the senior 100 flex stick. This is the worst stick I have ever seen and it truly is a waste of money, do not waste your time.

  50. z on Sun, 11th May 2008 8:36 pm 

    for u parents complaining why your son is breaking a $200+ dollar stick, why are u buying them it in the first place. They havent even hit puberty yet. I could see if they were older and playing at a high level of hockey but come on, i didnt get my first composite stick until i was 14, but thats just cause it was for $100. its too much money for kids. plus wood stick have the best flex and response, u just need to find the right one.

  51. michael on Thu, 15th May 2008 2:29 pm 

    I just got it yesterday and since my best freinds dad is pro i got to go to easton to custimize it myself i got it blue with grip, and the added an extra layer to the bottom where they normally break so hopefully it won’t break, great stick though

  52. pete on Mon, 2nd Jun 2008 5:10 pm 

    i had 3 and broke all of them, they suck im not getting any more

  53. michael on Tue, 3rd Jun 2008 8:20 pm 

    best stick in the world so much control on shot and stickhandeling + the awesome feel when stickhandling and shootiing and passing. had it for a while used it 23 times no signs of breaking. i would give it a 9 out of 10. really amazing stick, but it all comes uo to prefrence!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! duh

  54. Chris on Mon, 23rd Jun 2008 6:45 pm 

    Does ne1 know how to contact Easton I really want this stick but I hate grip and they only have junior and intermediate with grip so id like to contact easton and tell them about this problem

  55. Chris on Mon, 23rd Jun 2008 6:52 pm 

    hey micheal is there any other way to get a customized stick id love to have a best friend whos dad was pro thats pretty tight

  56. Chris on Mon, 23rd Jun 2008 6:54 pm 

    i have an old stealth and im waiting to get my hands on these

  57. Matt on Wed, 25th Jun 2008 1:25 pm 

    Pete,
    every stick breaks thats why they have warrantys

  58. brendan on Wed, 23rd Jul 2008 7:02 am 

    alrite, peter if the stick doesnt make the diffference then why is more than like 55% of the ENTIRE nhl players are using s17′s? only about 2 % of the players using the stick are getting paid to use it.

  59. matt on Wed, 15th Oct 2008 7:42 pm 

    im buying a new stick i bought a vapor xxxx that was junk and i want to make sure i dont make another mistake by buying a piece of crap stick..PLEASE HELP!!!

  60. matt on Wed, 22nd Oct 2008 7:12 pm 

    just bought the s17..best purchase ive ever made

  61. gene on Sat, 25th Oct 2008 9:41 am 

    Pros: Great slap shot and solid wrist shot stick. Cons: due to it’s rigid nature it’s bouncy and difficult for catching passes. Bouncy and out of control for stick handling. Not durable. Blade is fragile prone to breaking especially at the blade tip. I switched to Vapor XXXX. Pros: seems much more durable. Great stick handling stick. Cons: terribaly inacurate and weak slap shot. Semi-weak wrist shot. I’m curious to try Mission Titanium or Warrior Kroniks next. Any suggestions?

  62. dan on Tue, 28th Oct 2008 4:38 pm 

    Gene,
    i would try the kronik. its a great stick and it will add about 10mph to your shots. You may also want to try the supreme one95 or the dolomite spyne

  63. gene on Thu, 30th Oct 2008 5:44 am 

    Dan thanks for the suggestion but I’m wondering if the Spyne blade will have the same tortional rigid negative affect like the S17 has with stick handling and catching passes by being too bouncy. The S17 had given me the best slap, snap and wrist shot I ever had but the negatives can’t be ignored. Anyone compare the Mission Titanium with the S17?

  64. dan on Sun, 2nd Nov 2008 10:14 am 

    ive only heard bad about that…try the one95 i was using a friends yesterday great stick

  65. pam on Sat, 15th Nov 2008 7:41 pm 

    it is great but it breaks to easy i know someone broke it in 1 day and hes 10

  66. pam on Sat, 15th Nov 2008 7:42 pm 

    it is great and it breaks easy

  67. hunter on Sat, 15th Nov 2008 7:44 pm 

    i love it but go with the o stick or the u stick and the bauer one 95 my favorite one i had was the o

  68. Alex on Sat, 22nd Nov 2008 3:14 am 

    Just got mine. I play D-2 college so I can play but I’m not unbelieveable or anything.

    I am a sniper and dangler. Always have been always will be. This stick is perfect for my style. Great, quick, crisp release with pinpoint accuracy. Great feel for stick handling and I haven’t noticed that the blade is overly bouncy for a composite. If you are an speed and accuracy sniper type get this stick. My snapshot coming down the wing is my bread and butter. This stick made a noticeable difference with its release and accuracy.

    Don’t know about the durability but I don’t break sticks very often. If you are not a sniper type player I would go with warriors or the bauer one95. This stick is the best for snipers that use a snapshot often and rely on it.

  69. Kevin on Tue, 2nd Dec 2008 9:48 am 

    To all of you who keep breaking these sticks…ever think its you shooting wrong and not the stick…i got mad one day and two handed the end boards and cracked the heal…i have used the stick now for two months after that and its shooting the puck harder and more accurate then before…so not exactly sure why all of your sticks keep breaking…just my 2 cents

  70. Kevin on Tue, 2nd Dec 2008 9:51 am 

    FYI the best stick on the market is the Easton Elite or the replacement Easton SE 16…also my 2 cents

  71. Brett on Thu, 18th Dec 2008 10:03 am 

    I love this stick. The puck speed and pop off the blade is amazing as is the feel. Slapshot power is also better. Amazing stick.

  72. chris on Tue, 30th Dec 2008 1:21 pm 

    It’s a great stick but i got one and it broke within 2 weeks right down the bottom of the blade. I’m on my second one and I’m hoping it last longer

  73. braden saretsky on Thu, 1st Jan 2009 12:55 am 

    i just baught the easton red s17 its sick i rip howies with it

  74. braden saretsky on Thu, 1st Jan 2009 12:58 am 

    very good grip id say one of the best sticks on the market

  75. brady on Fri, 2nd Jan 2009 3:16 pm 

    My stick (the s17) grip is very excellent product . I recomend to anyone looking for a new stick , to get the s17 w/grip./ i have the 65 flex sakic lie 5 and it works extremely well im thinking to buy easton sticks more often , before my s17 i had a blue warrior dolomite i used it for 1 year and it still looks new but the grip was wearing off and i take lots of slapshots and for me grip is required . to anyone that is going to get a stick get an s17 its an extremely good buy !

  76. David on Fri, 2nd Jan 2009 7:38 pm 

    I got one and it cracked down the bottom of the blade also. Anyone know if they make a replacement blade?

  77. Nick on Fri, 2nd Jan 2009 10:28 pm 

    Kevin is right, if your sticks are breaking within weeks of getting them there are a few different reasons. I would say 2% of sticks are bad from the factory, 10% of the sticks that break are the wrong flex, 20% break because your shot is bad and your hitting the ice way to far behind the puck. 30% comes from abuse of your own stick, and 38% comes from someone hacking at the stick and it breaks when you shoot. Most aren’t designed to take a direct blow from the side. Any stick will break if you hit them right. Top of the line sticks do break easier than cheaper composite sticks and it is very important to get the right flex. As far as this the S17 goes, I think it is no doubt one of the best sticks ever made. I have demoed it along with an S11, Bauer One95, and a few others and this stick is simply amazing. I have worked in a proshop for about 4 years now and have access to a Rapid Shot for stick testing. Check it out, Rapidshot.com

  78. Jeff Smith on Wed, 7th Jan 2009 3:58 pm 

    To all you guys buying premiuim sticks for your ten year olds.
    DUH
    These are not the sticks that they are modelled after. These are not sticks that are made to the specs that the Sr. version are. They are sticks for kids. They are made to attract the eye of the kid, to look like the pros. And because there are so many parents out there obsessed with giving their kids every edge, they fork out hundreds of dollars for a stick, for a kid who cannot possibly reap the rewards of the technology and quality that isn’t even present. Give your kid a wood stick with a straight blade until he hits 12 so he learns how to shoot, handle a puck etc. Ask Crosby.

    Furthermore,
    most of the sticks avaliable in stores are made in mexico, whereas the pro stock models are made in the USA. Unless you have access to prostock, you are being ripped off. I was given a prostock forsberg model, plain silver with one easton graphic, by a college proffesor who played Jr. A, and had a friend at easton, and it was the most phenomenally light stick I have ever used. It had no specs and no flex written on it. It broke in 2 games. Why?because it was made for a guy who uses a new one every day.

    I dare any of you older guys using composites to go out and practice a couple of times with the good old wood. I still use a composite in the competive league I play in, but if you are playing beer league with no slaps, you will rediscover puck handing, pass taking and shot accuracy that you forgot existed. Weeknite shinny=Sherwood 9090 featherlight. try it. i dare you.

    My son broke three of the s17 within three monthes of it’s release. the Easton people were great they replaced it everytime. Everytime it was in transit he went back to his zbubble two piece and you could definetly see a difference in shot speed and accuracy. The biggest difference was in the puck handling speed. His new s17 has got a 3/4′s of a season on it and no problems i think they got the bugs worked out what possibly is the best stick ever made (according to my son)

    yeah, I have two of the sticks a red one ans a blue i cant belive it its awsome but why is it that all i ever see is the red ones in 65 flex any way the only stick i will use is a s17 no matter what the only down fall is the red sticks paint come’s off to easy but no biggie.

  81. crosby fan on Sun, 1st Feb 2009 9:11 pm 

    the jr does not break easly but the sr does

  82. steelers on Mon, 2nd Feb 2009 11:38 am 

    the s17 rock!!!the red brakes really easy get the blue!!!

  83. cd on Sun, 8th Feb 2009 2:29 pm 

    this stick is good, but there is many downfalls.
    the skinnier bottom works great on wrist shot but seems to take away from the power in slapshots,
    also these sticks are known as “performance sticks” meaning they are made for better shots, but break much easier than any other stick. on average these sticks last for about a month.

  84. fjakd on Thu, 12th Feb 2009 4:51 pm 

    cd,

    ive had mine for 1/2 year and it hasnt broke yet. I love this stick, but the one95 blows everything away

  85. Scott on Sat, 21st Feb 2009 10:08 pm 

    hey does anyone know about the dolomite spyne and i held this stick today and it feels so light and even tho it said it was 100 flex it felt like 80-85-suggestions please

  86. steve on Sun, 22nd Feb 2009 10:20 am 

    it may be because my s17 and one95 are different flexes and different curves, but it seems like the s17 has a better slapshot then the one95

  87. Panthers rule on Sun, 8th Mar 2009 8:37 pm 

    This is for all of you theat say the S17 is to bouncy for catching a pass. Do u people know how to catch a pass you go with the flow of the puck. When the puck comes move your stick back with the puck and u will have more control

  88. Panthers rule on Sun, 8th Mar 2009 8:43 pm 

    Reebok 10K the best stick ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  89. Josh on Sat, 28th Mar 2009 8:21 pm 

    One thing i think as an owner of recently 3 of these sticks is

    They aren’t as durable as most sticks and the tip of the blade is easily chipped and the the bottom of the blade tends to crack… My first one i shatterd in the middle of the shaft taking a one-timer during a game, my first lasted about 4 months w/o any problems like cracking. The other two just started to break down after 3. Yes they are not the stick you would want to relay for a long haul because they wont last that long.

    But… im pretty sure u guys are wondering why i bought 3 of them and now playing with a 4th stick of the same model.

    The stick has great feel on the ice and on the puck, Also it lives up to “stronger, faster, acurate shot” I also feel that it has a really good balance to it and reacts really well.
    So overall if your looking for a stick that WILL LAST you DONT BUY IT
    But if your looking for a HIGH QUALITY stick that has GREAT PERFORMANCE BUY IT

  90. Josh on Sat, 28th Mar 2009 8:22 pm 

    if you have money to burn and want a “super” stick buy it

  91. bob on Tue, 7th Apr 2009 11:44 am 

    the s17 is a good stick but the quality is terrible ive broken 4 in a year. I would go with a stick like the bauer vapour xxxx ive had one for 3 monts now and no signs of breaking yet.

  92. Pat on Tue, 5th May 2009 7:44 pm 

    If you want a good stick that will last long and go really well and you’re willing to pay a fairly large amount of money, I recommend the Nike Bauer One 95.
    The KICKPOINT IN THIS STICK IS GREAT !

  93. Snipes on Thu, 14th May 2009 10:34 pm 

    I heard it breaks but this stick looks so sick and i cant break nothin so i wanna know if its worth it? I think it is!!!!!!!!

  94. Snipes on Thu, 14th May 2009 10:36 pm 

    most people that say sticks break to easily abuse their sticks so dont take their opinion all the time

  95. Snipes on Fri, 15th May 2009 9:43 am 

    This stick is sooooooo sick!!! I want one in an iginla curve 100 flex!! I think this stick in canada at a good store is around $280. i think its worth it though!!!!

  96. tyler on Fri, 22nd May 2009 10:32 am 

    the stick is decent. its a great stick when yu first get it but after a while the blade begins to become flimzy.
    if you looking for a long lasting stick go with the vapour fourty or the one nindy.

  97. Connor on Tue, 26th May 2009 9:20 pm 

    agreed tyler but i have to say if you are looking for a performance stick this is hands down the best you can purchase it will last for a while but for more agressive players i recommend thevapour 40 i have a friend whos had it for 3 months and gets nearly the same quality as when he first bought it

  98. Connor on Tue, 26th May 2009 9:30 pm 

    Hey z hate to break it to you wooden sticks do not have the best flex and responce :s i recommend buying your kid who is at the age of 14 a quality stick he will get his use out of it and not be dissapointed a stick around $130 is a good price which is now also the prices of the vapour XXV a quality stick for a quality price

  99. mike on Mon, 15th Jun 2009 4:15 pm 

    easton is a good companie but i perfer nike bauer my gradma could make a better hockey stick

  100. John on Fri, 19th Jun 2009 5:30 pm 

    the vapor xxxx is way better than the s17. my friend has one and i used it and i hate it. i will take my vapor over an s17 any day

  101. Jake on Sun, 28th Jun 2009 3:53 pm 

    I have the s17 and it has a ton of pop. Plus if u buy one with a square toe you can totally dominate with toe drags

  102. ryan latang on Sun, 5th Jul 2009 9:09 pm 

    my buddy had a s17 and it broke within a month i need a reliable stick at a reasonable price. Does anyone now what stick i could get

  103. Erik on Mon, 13th Jul 2009 1:13 am 

    Ryan, the SE16 is pretty durable, and is overall a very nice purchase.

  104. ryan latang on Wed, 15th Jul 2009 7:54 pm 

    ya i was thinking of a se 16 thanks buddy

  105. Erik on Fri, 17th Jul 2009 8:11 pm 

    No problem man, I’ve had my SE16 ever since it came out, and it’s been doing great. I just got an S17, and I think its part of the new batch. Zetterberg Senior 85 flex grip? Anyone know if it’s part of the new batch? Thanx.

  106. Snipes on Fri, 14th Aug 2009 2:02 pm 

    Anyone know how much an SE16 retails for in a good hockey store? Cause in my town they over price their stuff.I have an awesome one95 right now but im just looking for down the road.

  107. Erik on Wed, 19th Aug 2009 1:46 am 

    SE16 sells for about 210 with grip and 200 without at my local store, but then again, my store isn’t too pricey.

  108. eric on Fri, 21st Aug 2009 11:50 pm 

    i recently got one, its excellent! i got it at total hockey St. Louis for about $40

  109. Snipes on Tue, 1st Sep 2009 3:31 pm 

    If anyone doesn’t know this already they have the s19 on http://www.icewarehouse.com you should seriously chek it out cuz its sick!!!!!!

  110. Snipes on Tue, 1st Sep 2009 3:34 pm 

    s17, SE16 or the U+????????

  111. Snipes on Tue, 1st Sep 2009 4:08 pm 

    sorry everyone!!! I just went to icewarehouse and i guess they took it off!! It was there about a week or so ago!!!

  112. Some Guy on Sun, 18th Oct 2009 6:39 pm 

    I have used a few S17s, once you get use to the bounce the stick is amazing and was the best stick on the market performance wise no doubt, for shooting and stick handling, the issue is they snap at the kick point. I believe the s19s (the new version of s17) have a shorter kick point which will probably help with the durability of the stick my only worry is they might be a bit more bottom heavy which is what makes the s17 so amazing is how light they are in the lower shaft and blade.

    IMO to people considering S16 is to find older stealth like 2nd and 3rd gen they are basically the same stick and I know in Canada you can get them at sportschek for super cheap like $139 with grip might be limited on selection though.

  113. joe on Fri, 11th Dec 2009 9:46 am 

    My 9 year old had the S17 Junior. He snapped after 2 months and he does not slapshot at all. I have gone through 3 of them in the last 2 years, they are the most incredible sticks to me, however they do not last. Using the S17 will require purchasing them periodically and they are not cheap, so beware, you WILL break them.

  114. Lenny on Thu, 31st Dec 2009 3:54 pm 

    has anyone used the s19 yet, and is it worth the $$

  115. Tyler on Fri, 1st Jan 2010 9:00 am 

    Lenny, I’ve used the S19 and it is a great stick! However, I think that you really have to understand and feel the difference in the stick for it to be worth the money. If you play a lot and can genuinely tell the difference, then by all means buy it.

  116. Wyatt on Fri, 29th Jan 2010 8:32 pm 

    i just got this stick because i snapped my nikeBauer XXXX and i like it much better than the NikeBauer sticks
