It really doesn't make a difference (except that wood sticks tend to be heavier and you also get more flex in a composite stick). It is mostly your preference.
99% of the time the type of stick you use depends on your age. Younger players will use junior and or intermediate sticks while older playin will use senior sticks. The junior and intermediate sticks have a lower "flex" rating which means the stick has more bend. As older players are stronger they will break them easier. The opposite for senior sticks. A senior stick has a high flex rating and would suit an older player well because it is stiffer. There are exceptions to this. A couple of years ago, rumor had it that NHL star Brendan Shannahan used a 55 flex stick while on the powerplay. A 55 flex stick is typical of the flex rating used in junior sticks which are made for children around 12 and under. A last component is that junior and senior stick have varying lengths due to the difference in intensted age groupings. Standard junior sticks and much much shorter than standard length senior sticks.
