Mystery hockey stick deal worth it?
 
I was wondering if anyone here has bought the mystery hockey stick packs. I saw a 3 pro stick pack on hockeymonkey and I'm wondering if there worth the price. The main reason why I'm debating this is because I don't know what setup I want since I haven't had too much experience with different sticks, therefore I'm not too worried what mystery setup I end up with. Am I approaching thisthe wrong way? Thanks

I've actually wondered the same thing

not worth it. i've heard of many people getting low end sticks, in flexes and curves that weren't right, etc.

Based on what they have in stock you'll probably be SOL if you're a righty and like lighter flex sticks.

I've never done it and do not know anyone who has. I would hate getting the wrong lie that I use. The curve would not bother me that much as I can adapt to anything ... for example I use a tough curve to get used to begin with which is the Getzlaf / Lidstrom type.

The other thing is the flex as mentioned here but you are posting about pro stock sticks I think, I may be more tempted from that alone.

But yeah for me the biggest thing is the lie more than anything else.

Senior Mystery Composite Hockey Stick 3 Pack
Reg. Price: $599.99Our Price: 179.98

You can take 410 off that for a lefty set.

For that cheap a price getting three quality sticks is a good deal even if you get two that are useless you would still get one at a fair price in my opinion.

I would be happy if only two were useful to me and resell the third on eBay or whatever.:sarcasm:

Thanks for all of the quick responses.

My mistake, you're right, they're senior sticks not pro. The other reason why I was debating this is because I am a lefty so I'm hoping the stock will be better? I know I shouldn't be counting on "should" but it could happen haha. Is there a quick guide on flex, lie etc and how they affect the setup? Thanks again to everyone who responded so fast.

Had to ask the guy who I bought it from, since the stick was cut down and not all the info is there. The lie is 5 and the flex is mid 90s. Not sure about the pattern, looks to be open.

You're better off waiting till the summer clearance sales at your local hockey shop. Look for the discontinued sticks (as in different paint scheme for the 10/11 seasons), you can usually pick them up for 50% off.
