Default Inline Hockey sticks

Would you use Ice Hockey? or a traditional Roller hockey stick, just looking for your views really.

Depends what type of RH you are going to play. Rules dictate. I dont think you can use "traditional" sticks with inline hockey and vice versa

Then you will be about 6' 6". There are plenty of tall people play. My son is just reaching 6' and hasn't stopped growing. He can cope with being tall.

Not quite sure what you mean by 'traditional roller hockey stick'??

Ice and inline sticks are essentially the same thing. The head is where the difference tended to be. It the head didn't have a strip of ABS under it, it tended to fall apart for inline after hald a season. But, people are using regular (and expensive) one piece composite sticks that are designed for ice when they play inline. Then they complain that they have to spend a tonne of money on a new stick every 2-3 months.
