You'll be blocking pucks and balls non-stop with the Mylec® Air-Flo® 48" goalie stick! It features a durable fiberglass-reinforced blade with the brand's patented Air-Flo® design, which reduces wind resistance for faster shot deflections.
I will probably return it. This was a "suggested item" that their website recommended to go with the mini street hockey goalie pads I was buying. I made the mistake of assuming it was suggesting a youth-size stick since I was buying kids-size items, and I didn't read the description super closely, so I ended up with a stick that was much bigger than I was expecting.
Bought this goalie stick because I had a coupon and we needed one. Too bad we didn't go to a store first, because we would not have purchased this. The blade is floppy, literally. The plastic is not stiff enough and this review occurred during the CO winter. I can't imagine what will happen when we play with it during hot summer months. The stick, where it is inserted into the blade, is not a tight fit (even with tightening the screws). Overall, poorly designed and not a good product.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Bought this for my 10-yr-old son for Christmas, and we're really enjoying it. We use it for street hockey. It's our first goalie stick, so we're still getting used to its weight and size -- my son is a trooper with the relative awkwardness compared to a regular hockey stick. My only beef is that the blade is more flexible than I expected, so sweeping the puck/ball away from the net requires a very deliberate motion to compensate for the flex. This is probably to be expected; all you *real* goalies are probably laughing at me right now... I would absolutely buy this stick again.
Was this a gift?:
