Supply Chain Issues

After another two year lay off caused by a parent's health problems - still ongoing - and the Bubonic Plague, I got back on the ice in September 2021 but not as consistently as I would prefer. Anyway, she who shall be obeyed cautioned me that I needed to get out of the house for more than simply going to work. Our big day out involved shopping for a new stick. What a joke that turned out to be. The Total Hockey store that sells goalie equipment had 3 full right goal sticks, one of which was for floor hockey and the other two were for fellas who like a 27 inch paddle length. Called Gunzo's and they had an equally limited supple of new stuff. Went there anyway to get some merch for Xmas for the daughter and I asked the clerk whether they had anything in the storage area. Sure enough, the young man walks out with what is shown below. Who knows how old it is but I had no choice. For what it is worth it is a Price model but must be from his rookie year or something....a completely wood stick. It should probably be in a time capsule.

Price P1, 24" paddle. 

I think there were some Retroflex all-wood sticks made about 3-5 years back. I bought a crap load of Brian’s Timber sticks when I was on my wood stick buying phase when I was alerted to these. I literally went from wood to composite with no foam core between LOL

I'm not too fussy about the stick. My biggest things are 1) the lighter the better, 2) short paddle, & 3) a decent curve. I dont really care who makes it. I was just very surprised to find a to wood stick. Cant beat the price - no pun intended - $45 US. It will probably break on the first heavy shot. :)

Is it made in Canada or elsewhere? That’s the big question.
