Ranges from stick to stick, and depends on the material type used for the stick. The composite sticks will be lighter due to their hollow core. Wood sticks are solid alll the way through which makes them heavier. Hope that helps.

It ranges between approximately 385-500 grams. But there are also heavier sticks out there. Wooden sticks are often (but not always) heavier than the ones made out of newer materials such as composite, graphite or fiberglass <500 grams.

The weight of a composite hockey stick is determined by it's chemical composition of fiberglass, aluminum, Graphite, Kevlar, and Titanium.

There are also mixed wood/composite or wood/graphite sticks, that's known as half-composite sticks. These keep the feeling of traditional wood sticks, but also has some of the abilities of the newer materials. It's weight varies, but generally, they're lighter than pure wood stick, but heavier than pure composite.

Most hockey sticks have the weight somewhere on the shaft in grams. If you're looking to buy one, ask someone, all new sticks should have the weight printed on them.

Not sure of the best way to weigh an old stick which doesn't have its weight printed on the shaft.

Lay the stick on the ground with the forehand facing the ground. Measure from the ground to the highest point of the curve.

A newer hockey stick may weigh so less as 395 grams, but it varies through 300-500. The sticks made out of wood are often heavier than the one's made out of composite or graphite.
