Total Goalie is now
The R1.5 comes in as the entry level stick in the revamped Premier line. The paddle has a new matte finish that helps provide improved feel through the tactile finish. The matte finish coats a completely new frame for the goal stick, that was re-engineered drawing from their player stick lines to achieve superior stiffness and feel. Finally, the stiffness that you find throughout the shaft translates down to the blade and provides excellent deflection control and feel on the puck.
