Here is my review of the Oakley LB9000. @BossFHockey has already reviewed it, so check out his thoughts, he is a better player than me and that's quite important for this review. I am currently selling it, feel free to PM me (37.5", UK) I'm a club level player, decent, not amazing, so my review is coming from that perspective. Style 9/10 The stick looks really good. Simple black finish, not trying to be flashy. Grooves in the back of the stick add a little something too. I have recently replaced the white grip with a black grip so the whole thing is just black (it looks fierce!). As a side note, the stock grip is pretty rubbish. It's white leather, very glossy, if it rains in the slightest or gets wet it becomes like a bar of soap. Feel 7/10 The stick is very hard and stiff, which for a better player could be amazing. But for me, not so much. Most of the time it's fine and it has it's benefits, but in terms of close ball control, I've had better. Striking 9/10 The firmness of the stick gives it power. I mean wow, the ball pings off this thing so so well. Reverse 7/10 Reverse hitting is my thing (I'm a leftie, which helps), but I make more miss-hits with this than I did with my Uber Boomerwang, and hits are less powerful. I'm not sure if it's to do with strength and reinforcement or to do with the bow (both have extreme low bows). Aerials 7/10 Similar story, less distance than my Uber and a higher fail rate, possible because of the scooped head on the Uber. Flicking 7/10 Not drag-flicking... but for general flicking, it is good, I struggle to generate the power that I can with other sticks though. Possibly because of the stiffness. However it is very good for flicking low balls with power, so out of danger, into the opposition D, anything where you want to clear a few players. Overall It's the stiffness that makes it not quite suit me - that is, of course, due to my ability level and I would love to see how some of our national league boys could cope with it. It's a bit like a powerful sports car, in the right hands it is hard to beat, but it is unforgiving.
