theres a long long thread on d-poles
i would say an excellent value combo (offering bangs per buck) would be a warrior platinum alloy shaft with perhaps an STX bionic.
bionic is a stiff, medium priced head and the platinum alloy is lightish and seems pretty strong for the price.
i have a bionic, wizard and revo pro and like the Revo pro the best but its pricey. as far as shafts go
titaniums are beastly (but expensive)
Kryptolytes are pretty nice, and light and strong
scandiums are very light
as are gait db803s (can be brittle)
woodie-bloody heavy, painful, cheap and strong

I can tell you now that the Ignite D poles are not duarable. I'd be suprised if it survived a training session, never mind a game!

Perhaps a scandium sci/ti light but very tough, and the bionic is a good d head to start off with as tom said, i play with one and its great!

I'll second that about the ignite's not lasting, I'm not the hardest hitter, especially in training, and I've broken two (the second was a replacement, as our team had got some in bulk, due to a special offer, i'd never buy one again).

The platinum alloy from warrior is pretty good, especially, when it comes to durabitlity vs. price.
Also wood is always fun, if only for the look on the attackers face as they realise the beast you're holding...

STX C405 axe - like a Kryptolyte, but more durable - thicker walls.

Eurolax make longs? I thought they concentrated on the box market.

Anyways, I don't think this kid is looking to be importing a pole from Germany.

A warrior kryptolyte is as light if not lighter than a shortstick but durability is the question and i'd suggest if u buy it to put a bionic head on it becaus with the right string job that has amazing hold but u would need to drill a new hold to mount the head as the kryptolyte was not built for a bionic. but if u get that stick with that head u r ready to go man!

I use a longsword cut in half. JP went through a few of these in quick succession.
I've bent mine tons of times, mainly when shooting and a Pole gets in the way. shaft on shaft they don't hold up too great.

However a good plus is I bent it straight again and yes they are a great weight and fairly cheap!

Davensports used to stock STX and Brine stuff (my first stick!), they were a family run business. Now they are owned by someone else and I haven't been there for 10 years!

I've also had the Box shaft version - it's much thicker and stronger but doesn't come in pole.

And yesh probaly not the best if you're based in the USA!

I've had my Ignite D pole for about a year now and it's still in good condition even though I use it alot. Maybe I just got lucky.
Everybody this particular fat burning furnace to lose weight naturally while you might get the exact eat stop eat - food lifestyle. I used this good link building services and that they performed but also satellite direct didnrrrt. Maybe examined some sort of salehoo review together with truth about six pack abs. I got and moreover the best might be unique article wizard assistance given it is compatible.

I have always loved the DB803, but the kryptolyte is a good option. NOT THE PRO its made of butter
