Hey Kyle, I'm sure a lot of other people feel the same way you do because they don't have a BASE stick. However, BASE Hockey is not putting on this competition to get as many entries as possible. Of course we want more people using BASE Hockey sticks, but we are also interested in motivating our BASE Hockey Shooters to get out and practice. In addition, we will be able to watch their videos and comment on youtube with some constructive feedback. Ultimately the RONNING CUP is designed to make our BASE Hockey shooters better hockey players.

I understand where your coming from but I can't help but being annoyed at how your only trying to help people who buy your products.

Consider this... we're also trying to help people by selling them our hockey stick. We make a top of the line graphite stick, fully customized, and educate all our customers on the specifications of the stick to fit thier style of play... and our sticks are $100 cheaper than the competition. We are trying to help everyone!

I think your "annoyed" non customer should consider becoming a customer and purchase the best hockey stick on the market hands down!  
An extremely satisfied Base Hockey customer.

hey guys i recently ordered a base stick and love it so much! my only concern is that i love big toe curves. so i got the Bc01 curve on my base. its ok but the face is just too open. i wish you guys would make like a kreps or a pro stock kovalchuk curve wich is my favorite of all time! i know a bunch of people want that curve and no other brand makes it on there stick except kynetyk and they don't have very good sticks. but you guys have awesome sticks and i would stick with you guy's sticks forever if you made this curve. everyone wants it and no good brands make it. if you guys did everyone would want it and you guys would make a whole bunch o money.  
i hope you take this into consideration.

hello, my name is cam and i recently ordered a base stick. it is my avorite stick o all time and i love it so much! it is perect except for one thing.i love huge toe curves and i got the Bc01 curve cuz its the biggest toe curve you guys have. the only down fall is that the face is too open. i really think you guys should make somthing like a "Pro Stock Kovalchuk" curve. that is mine and alot o other peoples favorite curve. the only other brand that makes it on a stick is kynetyk but there sticks arent that good. i you guys made it, you would actually be a really good company that makes this curve on a stick. an since your the only one, people would only buy your sticks. you guys would sell alot more. i know that if you did that i would always stick to base sticks. i also have a fairly popular hockey youtube channel that i could advertise it on. my channel url is "" i have over 200 subscribers and i could definally help you guys get the word. 
please take this into concideration.
