Do you still get the warranty if you bought it in the States? Still a good deal though, pretty much like buying a pro stock ONE95 locally from Cyclones for $150.
if he's a beginner, he wont be able to tell the difference between the $45 composite and the $200 technological marvel.
yeah, there's 7K '06 snake grips for $60. some STs for $100, and the deal of the century if you like obscure patterns: 2x '07 7Ks for $150.
a few months ago sticks were still being sold for full pull, all the new gear comes out in a month, so stuff is on sale. the US has better prices due to the outrageous duties canada puts on stuff, something like 18%. its a good deal to buy from across the border if you're down there long enough to escape the duties.
the one95 pro stocks are great at $150, i have a couple. some of them look like repainted XXXX or X:60 though, which isnt a bad thing, but definitely not the same stick.
another option is the canucks' gear sale. brand new or lightly used sticks go for as low as $75.
