Per request, I am going to explain some things about my sticks and what I like. This post goes out to Ryan Atkins aka @RJAtkins on Twitter.
First of all here is a link to a video shot of me taking a slap shot at the Base Hockey shooting studio in Burnaby, British Columbia with a Base Hockey stick in slow motion. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QPFGP70y108
Its a funny story how I ended up getting hooked up with Cliff Ronning, owner of Base Hockey, in the first place. I was at a bagel shop in Burnaby and I saw a kid with a hockey hat on and asked what it was and he said his dad was Cliff and owned a new company. I said I was a prospect with the Kings and he called his dad and they asked if I wanted to come in to test some sticks. It worked out that the building was just around the corner from my fiancees house so we stopped by. There are a few other guys in the NHL that use these sticks now that I have heard of.
My sticks specs: and not necessarily the same company all the time, I use Reebok in AHL and NHL I would use BASE or Bauer Total One
Sakic curve with a little bit thinner of a blade/H-11 in RBK with more of a curve at the end opening up more
Textile Grip with Snake Skin grip also over top
4 inch extension - not wood plug, all graphite or whatever they are made of nowadays
Depending on how strong I am mid season or lack of strength, I usually drop down to 95 flex since my upper body loses alot of strength each season
