With many similarities to the other sticks in the EK family, the Sher-Wood Rekker EK20 Grip Composite Hockey Stick packs a big punch for an entry level stick. Like the other models, the Rekker EK20 by Sher-Wood features the Free Flex zone, a spear shaft construction and a Pro shaft contour. The low kick point makes the Rekker EK20 hockey stick a great twig to start whipping wristers past the goalie.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from really good stick but comes with some compromises Here is my review of these Rekker EK20 sticks having used them for a while now: 1) I would have liked to see this stick offered in a 105 flex, but I settled for the 95 flex in a Stastny pattern. 2) The stick has pretty good blade and hosel durability. No question about that. This stick can really take face-offs well and hold up to hacking abuse. However, the shaft seems to lose its stiffness a wee bit over a few games and practices. 3) At 510 grams, the EK20 is a good weight for guys like me who are reluctantly converting from heavier old school two-piece wood blade/Kevlar shaft combos. 4) I have noticed that this stick is not good for back-handers and slap shots, which is a real annoyance for me. You can still shoot a half-decent low slapper or a back-hander with this stick but the stick feels more like it is working against you in these instances. There just doesn't seem to be enough accuracy or fast and controlled sniper-style elevation of the puck to be really effective with those two particular shot types. 5) I would have liked to see this stick offered in a 62 or 63 inch length so I can just cut the stick down and not have to use a wood butt end to increase the length of the stick about an inch and a half for my height. 6) This stick really stick-handles very well and the shaft shape fits well in the hands because it is slightly more of a rounded feel shape compared to the awful pronounced square-ish shaft shape of the TrueTouch series. All of Sher-Wood's sticks should have the Rekker's shaft shape, in my opinion. The EK20 also passes very well and saucer passes well also. 7) The hosel area where the EK20's shaft meets the blade would have also been better with the wider hosel technology that Sher-Wood incorporates in the TrueTouch series sticks. I have tried the TrueTouch T80 and liked the wider hosel. That should have been implemented for the EK Rekker line and this EK 20, in my opinion. 8) The colour graphics are very nice looking on the EK20 and far better than the ugly neon green/navy blue graffiti of the new BPM series sticks. 9) Unfortunately, the EK20 does not come with the VRF blade technology incorporated into the blade. 10) Wrist shots and quick snap-shot zingers that start off the heel of the blade are definitely the key strengths of the EK20 stick, including rolling puck wrist shots where on occasion, the face of the puck ends up squarely flat on your blade before letting it go at the net. You can get some wicked bar-down zingers on occasion if you are lucky enough to meet the rolling puck flat and square before letting the wrister fly, usually off rebounds, or turn-around shot attempts. Conclusion: I got to like the EK20 more and more with regular use, but would have made some design changes if I was involved in its design and development. Don't get me wrong...this stick is a good, durable stick for the price point it is offered at, no question about that...BUT be prepared to accept a compromise on some things performance-wise. For those that can adjust more easily to lighter sticks, the EK40 is probably the better performance option.
