    I need a new stick and I'm pretty set upon a stick from the gr range. I tried a mates gr7000 xtreme and it felt decent but was wondering If there was much difference between that and the gr11000 xtreme. If so is the difference worth it?

    The 11 will be stiffer.
    Significantly I would imagine.
    So it'll be a little more unruly for trapping/dribbling, especially combined with the bow.

    But if you're accustomed to stiff/bowed sticks, then you should be able to handle it fine.

    Whether or not the 11 is worth the extra dollars/pounds/euro/lira/rupees depends on you.
    If you're not much of a hitter/slapper, then the extra power from the 11 will be redundant.

    Having said that, I dont hit/slap an awful lot, but still go for the stiffer sticks as I enjoy their touch.

    My son has both and says there is no comparison, the GR 11,000 is superbly balanced, has fantastic fizz but is no more difficult to trap. If you have the money, it comes highly recommended.
