It's not the stick specifically. If you want a fast shot you will have to work on it yourself, practicing everyday. It also has to do with the pocket rather that the shaft/head. a higher pocket will have more whip and seem faster, but when it comes down to it, it is all your play and form that make a shot fast. Also working on accuracy and wrist strength will help.
