Many of us still like the whippy wood sticks. These sticks are great, but are too short for most players over 5'10". I wish that they would offer longer models as well as orders by lie and blade/curve type rather that player perfered models, which tend to change from year to year.Review by Dr. Brad (Posted on 7/24/2016)
I have had this stick over a year mostly on ice but have played a few outdoor roller games with it very durable only now beginning to show some wearReview by JS44 (Posted on 7/24/2016)
Have this as a spare stick, don't use it much. It strikes me as a stick I would rather have for a street/roller game than ice.Review by BoomerTheCannon (Posted on 7/24/2016)
got the coffey curve cause its mad curvy. its an amazing stick, if your not wicked weak the weight shouldnt matter at all, i use the x60 87 flex with the p88 curve, use this one in games over that one because i love the flex and curve and just the pop it hasReview by danglin defenceman (Posted on 7/24/2016)
The 5030 is the ideal wooden stick for players of all skill levels desiring a lighter flex (85). It offers optimal puck feel and performance at a tremendous price value. No other wood stick on the market compares. Novice players struggling with passing and puck control would do well to invest in a 5030 or two.Review by Jack (Posted on 7/24/2016)
Been playing hockey since I was 10. In 17 years of playing ice hockey and indoor roller hockey, a 5030 has always been in my quiver. This is not to say I didn't use aluminum shafts/composite shafts in the past, and this not to say that one-piece composites aren't my regulars today...but the 5030 is affordable, lightweight, durable, and offers the best, natural puck feel you can get.Review by Rich F - NJ Benders (Posted on 7/24/2016)
I'm not trying to reinvent the wheel, and neither is Sherwood, but I know I turn to a 5030 with a Coffey pattern whenever I lose my groove or my main composite stick goes flat. There's a reason why these sticks have been around for this long!
I have been playing hockey since I was about 11 and I am now 28 and this stick has always been a main staple in my arsenal. I do use a Sherwood T90 and a Sherwood composite 9950 but this stick but the wood 5030 will always have a special place in my heart for its durability and puck feel. Hope Sherwood never gets rid of the Coffey pattern. Best emergency you could have it will never let you down.Review by Chickmagnetnethandlewompa1 (Posted on 7/24/2016)
I've been playing the game for almost 40 years and have kept going back to this good old wooden stick.Review by cpt-g (Posted on 7/24/2016)
Even if some think its too short, I myself at 6'1" cut it down by about an inch.
Works wonders for my slap shot.
If the new stuff doesn't work as expected, grab the 5030 out of the bag.
Made in Canada !!
Love the Coffey stick. No (wood) stick out there allows you to control your shot like the Coffey. Good luck with the backhand though hahaReview by Lindros (Posted on 7/24/2016)
Ive had total ones, X:60's, S19's, and even a 11k. nothing compaired to the shot i got with this stick, could be just the coffey curve, but it made all my shots noticabley harder and far more accurate. bought them until the pro shot ran out. well they're wood, they dont live as long. overall the best [$] i walked out of the proshop with.Review by Bragggdley (Posted on 7/24/2016)
I have played hockey since I was 7 and during 20 years I have had the commen aluminum and composit shafts with the very first composit blade added to it (afterwards), and just recently I purchased a full composit stick. NOTHING COMPAIRS to a 5030! It is not even close, the feel for puck you have with a 5030 is unbelievable!! The full composit is nice but at 100 flex is way too much. I just wish that they would still make the bourque 5030 that was by far the best curve they made, you could at least let a back hander rip!!! But I will say the C. 5030 does give you a hell of a shot.Review by Slap Happy (Posted on 7/24/2016)
Please don't stop selling the 5030!!!
Like an old friend who never wavers, this stick is always there and simply a classic. The new sticks are lighter, faster and better in some ways, but...for the money especially...it's hard to believe a WOODEN stick is still this great.Review by Jogr (Posted on 7/24/2016)
I stepped onto the ice yesterday for the first time in about 2 years and immediately was putting accurate slap shots on net from my old home at the point and even hitting posts (even though I'm weak and out of shape right now). Snap shots? I felt like Coffey...it was like I had never quit playing. Then I went to my composite and...well, maybe the lie was wrong or something.
Sher-Wood please keep them coming!
I'm relatively new to hockey and previously used a composite stick, I'm so happy that I gave this stick a try as it provides so much better "feel" than the composites do. My stick handling and ability to receive a pass instantly got better with this stick, I plan on sticking with this stick for the foreseeable future as it makes me a better player. I just wish HockeyMonkey would carry more curve options.Review by Scuba Steve (Posted on 7/24/2016)
I use this stick a lot and I love using it, but I have been considering using a composite stick here and there. I play more outdoors on pavement and I was wondering do these sticks last longer than a composite stick would?Review by Broad St Bullies (Posted on 7/24/2016)
5'10" 165lb 32 yr old beginner. Heavy, stiff (cut down two inches) , great puck feel stick handling and passing, affordable, great for beginner beer league and building up arm strength. Can't realy load it up for wristers, solid for slappers.Review by Grant (Posted on 7/24/2016)
Started using these 15 years ago and never looked back. This is easily the lightest wooden stick on the market and gives you just as good of a feel on the puck as any composite.Review by Duke of Earle (Posted on 7/24/2016)
Coffee blade is still the gold standard, but I've come to appreciate the Ryan curve as well. Allows for a little more of a controlled backhand.
From the moment you pick up the Sher-Wood 5030, you can feel the quality...Good looks,Great Feel,Strong..Like meeting the Perfect Woman..You cant go wrong with the 5030.Review by Stinger 96 (Posted on 7/24/2016)
The stick is fantastic. I've been playing hockey for about 11 years and have used both composite and wooden sticks. I'm 17 so I'm just starting to get out of the age group that's all about the newest technology, but this stick is great for anyone who just wants to carry on a classic and fading part of hockey. I currently own a Reebok 11k Sick kick 3 and believe it or not, a Bauer x:60 that is still playing impeccably. One day I felt the urge to buy a Sherwood. And with the low price point, I couldn't resist. I'm a winger but I prefer to have a little bit of a longer stick in comparison to most forwards. My 11k and x:60 both go up 1/2 inch above my nostrils so getting used to a Sherwood that just reaches my lower lip and the weight aspect took about two practices to get comfortable with. Obviously it's going to be heavy. It's a wooden stick, stop complaining about it in the reviews. With this solid stick you never have to worry about it breaking after a hard stick check. I use the Coffey curve which works great for me, but everyone is different.Review by Brendan C (Posted on 7/24/2016)
My slapshots were wicked and I could receive passes without a problem. I had a couple practices and one game and my blade split in the front and is pretty beat everywhere else.. Any part that isn't taped Up will wear down fast. Despite all that it preformed wellReview by Colin (Posted on 7/24/2016)
Having never used a wooden stick before and needing one temporarily I decided to give one a try. The overall feel of the stick while playing was fantastic both comfortable and responsive though it's shorter than your average composite so watch out for that.Review by BK (Posted on 7/24/2016)
My only gripe with this stick is both the heel and toe started to crack/breakup after two weeks of just on ice use. Unsure how superficial cracking of the fiberglass is to the overall structure with multiple large cracks the blade did not disintegrate.
Happy with this stick for the price though.
Great feel n power. Its heavy n builds upperbody strength.Review by horsefly (Posted on 7/24/2016)
Get it the great one W G advises players to try wood.
This has been my go-to stick for roller the past 12 years or so. Great comfort on the shaft, solid shot with limited flex which is good for a hard shot form the point, good blade as in controlling puck.Nice snap/wrist shot too. I keep a couple of these on bench for roller I hate sticks that have a really thick shaft (sounds like a dirty movie) and how they are rounded off. This wont happen with this stick.Review by Blade76 (Posted on 7/24/2016)
