Easton Synergy ST OPS Review

Easton Synergy ST One Piece Stick Review


Look & Feel

I have been using the Easton Synergy ST for a while now. I have to say that it is a very good stick. It feels like a “traditional” one piece stick (if you can call ops traditional). That is to say that it has a rectangular feel but feels very nice in your hands. I must admit that I really liked the look of the stick. I am a huge fan of black sticks and this one fits the bill. It has a nice look with its matte finish and it is very clean and simple.

Performance

Of course the ST comes in a variety of flexes (see below) and also comes in a grip or non-grip version. I am not a huge fan of grip coatings. I find it too sticky and my hand doesn’t slide down the stick like I would want it to. Others really can’t live without the grip, so you never know until you try. There are also the different blade patterns and it all depends on what you want your stick to do. The weight of the stick is good, not too light and has some ‘meat’ to it. I like a bit of a heavier stick but that is all due to personal preference. I find the balance of stick still fine, even after chopping it down.

Recommendation

This is a meat and potatoes kind of stick. There is no gimmicks or tricks here folks. This is a one piece stick that pays homage to those the came before it. The ST is along the lines of the old Synergy One Piece Sticks. This is the latest and greatest version of it and I would personally recommend it to anyone that asks. HG Review thinks that this is a good stick for the hack or the elite players you know.
