Pro-stock one piece sticks

Are they worth the money? THS and Sports exchange has some pro-stock one piece sticks, some are 1 year old while some can be 2 years and older.

Is it worth the money to take the chance on a one piece stick that has no warrenty?

What about a repaired pro-stock OPS.
http://www.prostickrepair.com/
They are located in Victoria and the sticks are $65 and they have 30 day warrenty for the guys that fixed them.

2 to 3 times a week.

And no, I am not a beginner.

Current stick is a Bauer Vapor 7, last sticks were some one piece Koho's.

with that much usage, u might want a warranty. because anything can happen in a month.

its also the luck of your draw as well. some guys i know have their sticks forever and some guys i know take it out once and take a few shots and boom it snaps.

and now to answer you're question, if you got the money for it, why not. less fatigue on your arms, more performance. anything to excel your game right?

id steer clear of the fixed sticks, even though they are a good deal. it just doesn't feel right to me.

these are the sticks i find that are the least durable

Thanks.

I don't break the sticks, but all my sticks have been the stiff flex and because I love my slap shots and at 200+ lbs, I can really lean into them.
The last sticks I had still look fine, but they definately lost the snap in them.

I guess my biggest fears is to break the stick not too long after purchasing it. Years ago, I bought a wooden blade when I was still using a 2 piece, and the first shot in the warm up broke the new blade.

Maybe I will give those repaired sticks a try. They claim a lot of people use them, and there is some good feedback.

It is usually a good deal if you go in with another buddy to sports exchange, and get two sticks or multiple sticks. Cause the owner there is pretty good at giving deals.
