Default Re: Do maple sticks reduce shock?

What about Hornbeam? What are the physical characteristics compared to the other woods? As I understand it, hornbeam is a European hardwood which was described to me a "hard maple".

I bought a few pairs of hornbeam sticks recently and have found them to be light and comfortable; it's only been a couple of weeks so I can't say how they compare in the long run to the hickory sticks I typically use but they have been surprisingly good so far. Especially when one considers that they are the B stock of that particular manufacturer.
