View Full Version : Sticks: Mission L-2 or Easton Ultralite
I have been using Easton sticks for the last 10 years and had the origional ultralite and loved it. I want to get a new stick and narrowedit down to these 2. I tried a Mission M-1 or2 (the blue one) and liked it, and i assume that the ultralite is still a good shaft.
what would you choose?
im sure the ultralite will b good as always but i see a lot of people using missions now.

I had M-2s that broke within a month after taking snapshots. I don't know how durable today's UL's are compared to earlier versions, but it's still a good shaft. I'd get the Red Lite XN 10s, super lightwieght and very durable.

Try the Easton Z-Bubble shaft. I also had Mission shafts that gave me problems.
i had 2 z-bubbles that broke on me in the last 2 years. I am actually using a old cyclone rite now (my forever back up stick)so i dont want another z-bubble. Ill look into the TPS and see if my shop has it if not ill prob order the L-2 unless i can get a ultralite grip for price i cant resist.

I actually picked up a basically new 2005 Ultra-lite shaft from a fellow forum member. Haven't used it yet, but bought it due to the track record of durability. As I hold it now, it feels solid, more so than the z-bubble grip I had about 9 months ago. Just my take on it.

I am a large 250lb winger, for both ice and roller hockey, and put a lot of stress on my shafts...I would go with the L-2! I have 2 and love them. I too tried the M-2 but it was not stiff enough for my liking. I was sponsored by Easton and broke over a dozen of the ultra lites in 2 seasons. The ultra light shattered several times while deflecting shots in front of the net and they would snap about 6-8 inches above the blade on hard snapshots.
Go Mission and reap the benefits of the best stick I have found!!!!
