This stick feels right where I want it to be. I haven't used it a lot lately because I have been using a new stick, but this is still my backup stick. I used it today in the snow and it was great. The baby oil really helped weatherproof the leathers. The hold was still great with little whip. The depth is still right at legal. I don't think this is going to change a whole lot anymore, but I'm not mad. This stick feels and throws great.
