Ultralite. Its a boomstick thats Stainless Steel instead of aluminium. SS creates less friction. I just plain dont like stiffi's because I would always be afraid that a fibre would stick out then it would all unwind.

it was hard between boomstick and ultralite....so i flipped a coin and whadda ya know its boomstick....

i don't like the stiffi mainly because its made of the same stuff that my tennis racquet is made of. I throw my racquet all the time when i'm pissed and i know the stuff is durable but the stuff also breaks. I'm scared that superman diving into the snake would snap the stiffi. and if carbon fiber breaks it doesn't snap it BURSTS into tons of pieces.

a boomstick is way too heavy and stiffis look ugly. Ultralites are quiet, look good, and you can choose the back and front they come with when buying one.

I chose ultralight, but stiffies are damn good too.

Only reason i chose ultralight is because it looks better, stiffi is just as accurate, lighter and shoots through better imo.

And boomsticks are sooo 1997.......

Why are boomsticks still so expensive if ultralites are better?
