View Full Version : Opinions on Easton Synergy
03-18-2002, 03:06 PM
I am thinking of purchasing a synergy, had one in my hand the other day and loved the feel. Looking for opinions of those who already own one. Was it worth the price? Does it really make a difference? How easy do they break?
Most responses I have heard have been positive but I would like to know if there are any "horror stories" of someone buying one and breaking it in the same day!! hope not, any response would really be appreciated, thanks

Well, I really haven;t used one that much...only about 10 shots...and personally I didn;t like it that much! I guess it gets better as you get used to it, but I dunno?
As for bad things...one of the guys I played prospects with last year have a few of'em, and he loved them. The only problem was that when the blade split(Just like a wooden stick) even if it was at the top of the blade...it really lost its effectiveness. So if it gets stepped on, you're screwed....other then that, they are alright!
Maybe put your money into a Bubble Grip...they look great...I am going out to order one as we speek!

I personally have used one for 1 game. I loved it. Just to expensive for me. You may also want to check out some of the other brands. Branches and Louisville have ones out that I know of. I have never tried either in a game but have tried the Louisvill in the pro shop and was great there but in a game its different.

I like the Easton SyNergy. The "Focus Flex" really enables you to put a lot of kick into your shot. Did my shot improve THAT much for a $150.00 stick compared to my normal choice (Ultra Lite 110)? Honestly, no. As far as durability goes, hey--sticks break! It really depends how often you get slashes, give slashes, how far you hit behind the puck, etc. I'd recommend a SyNergy in a heartbeat. But my new baby is the Easton MM Z--Bubble Grip. Two words-- f'n WOW! It's not as grippy as the Gold Grip SyNergy or the Grip Lite. It's, well, perfect. The MM (metal matrix) technology is supposed to increase the cut resistance on the shaft. I've only had it for a week, so it's hard to tell. Good luck on your decision.

I used one for awhile and found that it was two stiff and light for an inline puck. Was like stickhandling feathers. Could see it would make a great ice stick but I prefer a bit of 'whip' in my inline stick as this is necessary to feel the puck.
Not to mention it broke after 3 weeks and in Australia they retail for $400 ($200 American).
Lucky I am sponsored and didn't have to pay for it! Otherwise I would have been pissed.
