Great mid range stick!

10 months ago

I bought the 9X, 7X l, and now the 5X. There isn’t much difference between these sticks other than their weight. The 9X is the lightest, 7X the next lightest, and 5X the heaviest of all the sticks but you can’t really tell. My 9X/7X both were at 85flex but I chose to go with 75flex just to try something different. I only weigh 160lbs and I was getting a good amount of flex on read more the 85 but the 75 is much easier to use and much more whippy which could be a good or bad thing since I play D and point so I take a lot of 1 timers and clappers. With the 85 flex it took some effort to really get a good clapper off but the 75 flex was much easier and it seems like my shots are harder and are more loaded with the 75 flex vs the 85 flex. The 9X is 390grams, the 7X is 410grams, and the 5X is 430grams and IRL you can’t tell them apart. They are otherwise the same sticks. All 6.0 lie and 60”’s. I really like True sticks because of their graphics but also because of the way they’re designed. For a Mid Kick stick all of these are pretty whippy. I would say they’re almost like low kick sticks. I would definitely recommend these sticks but for the budget conscience players, the 5X is great enough. Get two 5X’s and you’ll be set because irl the only difference is the weight and irl most people aren’t going to be able to tell the difference. I also have the 9X in a shaft and I use a Bauer i3k blade for Roller and that shaft alone is 350 and the blade was 150grams and you can definitely tell the difference between the one piece 9X vs the two piece 9X but for the one piece sticks, you’re not going to be able to tell, and these sticks perform perfectly and are exactly the same irl. I would definitely recommend that everyone try to use sticks that are about 1/2 their overall weight to get the most out of the stick unless you’re super strong for your weight class. I will be using the 5X as my main stick because I like the 75 flex over the 85 flex but I’m not 100% sure yet because I feel like my clappers are more powerful with the 85 flex but more accurate with the 75 flex because I can control it better. Otherwise they are identical. I would love to eventually get my hands on a PX stick to see how they perform but it’s hard for me to swallow $300+ for a stick that I would only be using about once to twice a week. This is their mid range poor folks stick but there is the poor folk’s 3X stick but I don’t think I will want to venture onto that stick. I think I’m done with True sticks for now. True also has excellent customer service because I snapped my first 9X stick in half taking a clapper and it was within 30 days and they didn’t even ask for me to send the 9X back and they sent me a replacement. I’m a true CCM and True fanboy!

TRUE Catalyst 5X stick

1 year ago

I've only played a few pickup hockey games with this, but seems to be a quality stick on par with other brands' sticks at this price point. I can't really comment yet on durability, but I've leaned into some heavy slappers and it's blocked some hard shots on the hosel and shaft and so far so good. I had been using a Bauer Nexus 3N P92, but I wanted a max-height blade and a lower read more lie, without going custom or pro-stock, so I tried this stick in the TC2.5T curve (P92/P29, lie-5, max-height). Curve seems closer to the CCM P29 than the Bauer P92 (Bauer P92 seems to have tiny bit more toe). I'm losing less pucks under the toe with the lower-lie and the max-height gives me more confidence holding the blue line. Flex feels the same as the Nexus 3N - not stiffer or softer. I would definitely buy again.
