While most players consider wooden hockey sticks "old school," some high-level players today continue to use them for their feel, while many newcomers to hockey choose wood sticks for their wallet-friendly price.
Plenty of players will debate the merits of composite vs. wood hockey sticks, but a few facts are undeniable. One, wooden hockey sticks cost a fraction of what today's composite hockey sticks cost and still deliver solid performance. Two, wood sticks lack some of the performance features that allow top-end players to customize their composite sticks to their specific playing style. Three, a wooden stick’s heavier weight can be beneficial for learning to handle the puck, but it’s also a liability for a player’s stamina. Overall, wooden sticks make an excellent choice for younger players, as well as for players new to the game who really don't know what they want yet. They represent an affordable way to get on the ice with a stick that will do the job.
